Fertility awareness among women is the practice of consistently monitoring the occurrence of reproductive hormones over a period of time. The presence of reproductive hormones or ovulation shows that the woman is healthy and is ready to conceive. This type of monitoring is used to determine the fertility and infertility days of a woman.
Some women experience difficulty in becoming pregnant. Doctors may refer to this ‘pregnancy disorder as infertility’. There are many reasons for infertility, but most of these can be treated or corrected with the right attitude and fertility work ups.
Before any infertility treatment, your doctor will make sure she or he has a complete understanding of your lifestyle, your sexual history, and your family medical history. This is important to determine the cause of infertility. For many couples, the cause of infertility can be identified through tests. But for some, the cause is not easily identified.
The couples will both have to go through a series of tests to determine the cause of infertility and how to help in the treatment. Below are tests that a couple may go through:
Fertility tests for men:
- genetic testing
- hormone testing
- semen analysis
- testicular biopsy
- and other specialty testing
Fertility tests for women:
- hormone testing
- imaging tests
- ovarian reserve testing
- ovulation testing
Depending on symptoms, your doctor may request for hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.
Infertility work ups can be very costly. There are also procedures that are uncomfortable for both couples and yet after all the treatment, there is no real guarantee that you can get pregnant.
Red Light Therapy as Infertility treatment
Among other treatments for infertility include Red Light Therapy for both men & women. Red light therapy is a form of fertility treatment that can help women with infertility and men with the low sperm count. The procedure is done by the doctors using a device called a Light Emitting Diode (LED) which is placed on the woman’s belly. The LED emits infrared light which stimulates the ovaries and uterus. The red light stimulates the pituitary gland, which controls the ovulation process.
According to studies, Red Light Therapy can improve the fertility of a woman to increase her chances of having a baby by increasing her metabolism. The RLT can also improve sperm mobility and increase testosterone level.
Red Light Therapy is scientifically proven to work by enhancing the female reproductive hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The Light Therapy is not a cure for infertility, but it is a very effective treatment for women to enhance the chances of her pregnancy.
In summary, Red Light Therapy has been proven to be 99% effective in improving fertility. Talk to your OB-Gyne about red light therapy and its availability in your area.
