Fertility Program

The fertility program is tailored to each individual woman (and couple as a whole) and begins with diagnostic tests to ascertain why a woman may not be getting pregnant. Laboratory blood work, sperm tests, medical history, assessment of menstrual cycle patterning and examination is done by Dr Gunter to determine what the problem is, step by step.

Treatment includes initial detoxification, nutritional and lifestyle changes, homeopathic remedies, herbal support and acupressure/body work depending on what each case requires.

Results depend on the starting underlying condition of health, age and a few other factors. For health issues like insufficient cervical mucus, pH issues, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance, PCOS, cysts and fibroids- the underlying condition must first be addressed in order to restore reproductive health to its usual functionality, thereafter pregnancy can become a viable outcome.

Couples that Dr Gunter has worked with have fallen pregnant anywhere between 3 to 18 months of treatment- depending of course on the condition of health of both partners. For simple reproductive problems, pregnancy in 3 to 6 months is common. For more serious issues like sub-fertility in both partners, DNA fragmentation and repeated failed IVF attempts, it can take longer, up to 18- 24 months.  There are many benefits to the holistic approach including improving overall health and longevity, and increasing the likelihood of a healthy natural pregnancy. Previous miscarriages are also addressed in the treatment and prevention of miscarriage can be managed.

There are cases in which IVF or ICSI are important options, this is specifically the case if there is a mechanical problem such as blocked fallopian tubes, isolated teratozoospermia or another type of implantation issue. In these cases Dr Gunter’s program is best done before the IVF/ICSI procedure.
