Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after 12 months or more of regular sexual activity during the time of ovulation. From a naturopathic perspective, infertility is not a disease. Instead, we view infertility as a symptom that something yet to be diagnosed is hindering the proper function of the reproductive processes in one or both partners.
At ALETRIS, we will discover the causes of your particular case and determine your best options to increase the liklihood of conception using both conventional and alternative medicine. With an accurate diagnosis and a customized treatment plan designed to address the underlying cause, successful conception becomes a reality.
At Aletris, we want to help you realize your dream of becoming a parent. Naturally.
