Starting a family is something most couples look forward to. Sometimes, it’s more difficult than they initially considered. According to womenshealth, 1 in 6 couples in America will have infertility problems. In order to be considered in this category, you must have been trying for at least one year or at least 6 months if over the age of 35. This also includes if you can get pregnant but have difficulty staying pregnant. If you fall into this category, you’re not alone. Millions of couples in America have these same problems. What can be done about it though?
What causes Infertility?
Instances that could be causing infertility are blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis, physical problems with the uterus, uterine fibroids, or hormone imbalances. When blocked, the sperm have a difficult time reaching the egg. In the instances of the hormone imbalance, the egg isn’t ready for a number of reasons or the body isn’t ready.
In the instance of the male infertility, its much simpler. Either the sperm aren’t motile, there’s not enough sperm, or they simply die off from lack of energy (ATP) given to them to reach their destination. This is why 80% of infertility is usually occurring in the female as there is more than can cause it.
What Can You do About It?
First off, you need to contact your doctor or fertility specialist in order to determine what the cause of it is. If it is blocked fallopian tubes or uterine fibroids, then surgery may be in order to allow the body a chance to conceive. If its the instance of a hormone imbalance, then chiropractic maybe be helpful!
Chiropractic and Infertility
In the body there are what’s called subluxations in the body from everyday life that causes stress on the nervous system. This in turn does not allow the body to function the way it was originally designed. When this happens, such as with females, it can throw off their chemical composition as well as their hormones. When trying to conceive, all of the hormones in the female body much be introduced at the proper time. If not then the rest of the hormones will be thrown off and chances of getting pregnant go down.
Through removing those subluxations, you’re allowing your body to function better and regulate itself. This in turn normalizes the body and can help a couple attempting to conceive to get pregnant.
