It is estimated that one in six couples will have difficulties starting a pregnancy. For some couples there may be an identifiable problem while for others the reason seems unclear.

Some men have few or slow-moving sperm; some women have an irregular cycle or suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); others may have a history of early miscarriage or endometriosis; or there may be a history of previous infection or termination.

Other hormonal problems such as low thyroid function or adrenal insufficiency may interfere with fertility. Stress can also play a big factor in a couple’s ability to start a pregnancy.

There have now been a number of studies which have shown that complementary therapies can have a very positive effect in improving the fertility of either or both partners. At Healing Thyme we can advise you about diet and supplements and answer your related questions.
