What are Fertility Disorders?
What you eat, body composition imbalances, toxins in your environment, urinary tract infections that present no symptoms, and high levels of personal stress in the period before conception as well as during pregnancy all have a direct impact on your ability to become pregnant and deliver a healthy baby. Most importantly, hormone imbalances can play a huge part in fertility disorders, as they help regulate the process of menstruation, ovulation, and the reproductive system as a whole.
How will we determine if I have Fertility Disorders?
Dr. Cohen specializes in integrative approaches to hormone-related disorders, and feels that women suffering from fertility disorders can find relief through specialized hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Cohen initiates the diagnostic process by conducting a blood test to determine levels of hormones and neurotransmitters. If appropriate, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is initiated, with the levels of hormone being tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Additionally, Dr. Cohen works with her patients to ensure that diet, stress levels and exercise are all at optimal levels to increase the likelihood of conception.
