Natural capability to produce offspring
Today, Dr. Kristin Brogaard is joining me today to talk about the Path Fertility SpermQT test. I'm so excited to have her share about the test, because as you'll hear her say “lots of infertility goes undiagnosed because men go undiagnosed, and when men go undiagnosed, women go through procedures that will not work.” (Who else wants to see this on a bumper sticker?) While sperm were long considered to be just carriers of DNA, it turns out they are a lot more complex than that! Understanding the sperm side of the equation can help anyone trying to conceive better understand what's going on, and help them figure out the best plan to get pregnant. A few exciting highlights from our discussion: Male and sperm epigenetics play a big role in getting pregnant, and having a successful live birth. The SpermQT test can tell someone if their sperm is excellent, average, or poor quality. - Knowing this information can help you and your doctor determine the most efficient and appropriate next steps in your treatment or protocols. Understanding the quality of the sperm can lead to better outcomes. If it is “excellent,” there is an increased likelihood of IUI working, even in cases where doctors thought sperm might be the issue with getting pregnant. If sperm quality is “poor,” you may want to try making lifestyle changes to improve sperm quality, and retest. - Poor sperm quality often correlates with other longer term health issues for men, as sperm acts as a “canary in the coal mine.” (an early warning system) Dr. Kristin Brogaard has a PhD from Northwestern University where she developed a novel epigenetic technology that allowed for a more accurate understanding of gene expression in health and disease cells. She is now the chief scientific officer of Path Fertility, whose goal is to raise the standard in male reproductive health, starting with male infertility. Thank you for joining us, Kristin!

PCOS is one of the most common and most misunderstood conditions that we treat as reproductive endocrinologists, and this week I'm delighted to be joined on the podcast by Dr. Lucky Sekhon of RMA of New York to talk all about it. PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome, and that name can lead to some confusion. A lot of people think that they probably have cysts in their ovaries. The truth is that all women have multiple cysts (which are really small follicles that house eggs) in their ovaries. Those with PCOS have follicles that look like what we call a "string of pearls" on the periphery of their ovaries, and often have irregular (or no) cycles.

This episode of The Fertility Podcast is all about the practice of Fertility awareness. Fertility Awareness may not be a term that you've heard previously, or you might be an expert! Essentially the term means understanding your body and becoming more aware of the changes throughout your cycle. I discuss how you can become more aware of what is happening in your body and just how to become fertility aware. In the second half of the episode, I'm joined by my colleague Laura, who has developed the ‘Read Your Body' App. This fabulous little App, which I highly recommend, helps you get to know and understand your body. Listen in to hear what Laura has to say about her app and how it can help you when trying to conceive.What's in this episode:In the first half of the podcast, I explain what we mean by the term ‘fertility awareness', and share the 3 indicators of fertility to help you better understand both your body and your fertility.These three indicators are: Temperature, Cervical Mucus and your Cervix.I discuss how ovulation predictor kits and fertility monitors may help but also some of the pitfalls……I talk about how you can observe these indicators to help you identify when you're fertile and the all important fertile window.Laura joins me to explain just what the Read Your Body app does and how it can help support you to conceive naturally.There are many methods available to help you understand your body and fertility better. From period tracking apps, to ovulation predictor kits and fertility monitors. It's all about finding what works for you.Fertility Awareness is not currently recommended by NICE based on lack of evidence, but also concerns that women will become overwhelmed. This guidance, based on women's curiosity and a desire to become empowered, is perhaps outdated.Becoming fertility aware is under your control. It is incredibly empowering and can provide you with so much insight. As Laura says, knowledge is power, so why would you not want to explore all the options that are available to help move you along your fertility journey?Socials:Follow @TheFertilityPodcast on InstagramFollow @YourFertilityNurse on InstagramFollow Read Your Body (@read.your.body) | Instagram on InstagramLook at Read Your Body (RYB) - Home websiteThe OvuSense Fertility MonitorFind out more about Ovom Care here

In this episode, we're digging into how to minimize toxin exposure while TTC. We are exposed to over 85,000 chemicals in our environment. Environmental working group scientists have identified dozens of studies published in the past five years that report the presence of PFAS, or perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, in cord blood. “The presence of these chemicals is also a threat to pregnant people, serving as first contacts with PFAS before they can pass from the uterus to the developing fetus by way of the umbilical cord.” We're exposed to chemicals in our food, personal care products, water, consumer goods and cleaning products. Turns out these chemicals are linked to endocrine disruptors that impact both male and female fertility. Women with a history of miscarriage may have up to 300% more of a chemical used in perfumes and cosmetics in their bloodstream than women who have never miscarried. (Human Reproduction Journal). So, how do you protect yourself and your future children? I'm excited to welcome Rachel Varga (https://www.theschoolofradiance.com/) to the podcast.

Scheduling to record with this guest was a bit of a journey of its own, but the end result was totally worth it! Registered Nurse, nutritional therapist, and former fertility patient Katy Bradbury understands the fertility journey as thoroughly as anyone can. But her own difficult experience had a genuine bright side: it led her into her career in fertility-centered nutrition. As nutrition often isn't included in fertility advice or treatment in many places (looking at YOU, USA), this episode can be particularly useful for those who want to optimize their health and physical condition to support a healthy pregnancy. Fertility treatment in the UK is, as Katy says, a bit of a “postcode lottery” meaning that where you live can determine the level of treatment you receive, and there's not a national level of service. Some people may wait a year or longer to start, which can be really tough when age is such a factor. Fortunately, improving nutrition can start (and ideally should start) well in advance of that first round of IVF or before treatment begins. Here are some tips to keep in mind! Those first 1000 days — conception to age 2 — are so important to a child's development and health. It's best to work with all partners to fully understand the issues and be proactive about health and nutrition. Get ready to work on your gut! Gut health is so important and often so ignored. “Bespoke” nutritional guidance is best: bodies, lifestyles, tastes, etc. are all different. A fertility nutritionist can help you learn the foods that work best for you. Ready to learn more? Listen up! More about Katy Bradbury: Katy is founding member of the Fertility Nutrition Centre, a clinical advisor at Fab Fertile, a content provider for women's health platform Xena, and a clinical supervisor for nutritional therapy students at the University of West London.

In this episode of BackTable Urology, Dr. Silva and Dr. Zamip Patel, a urologist specializing in male infertility and andrology at Southeast Male Infertility and Urology/Andrology, discuss infertility trends and causes, as well as artificial intelligence in surgical robotics and fertility. --- SHOW NOTES First, the doctors discuss the rising rate of infertility in the US and around the world, and the potential causes behind it. They consider the impact of obesity and environmental cues, like endocrine disruptors, on fertility rates. Then, they transition to reflecting on the rapidly changing landscape of infertility treatments and how insurance coverage and third party providers are playing a role in treatment selection. They also examine the impact of government mandates on fertility coverage, and the implications for employers who want to provide fertility benefits to their employees. Next, they explore the challenges of diagnosing infertility, such as lack of awareness and the importance of optimizing the male side to improve IVF outcomes. Zamip then explains artificial intelligence (AI) can augment male fertility diagnostics and therapeutics. Advanced neural networks have enabled us to identify candidate genes in large sets of data that weren't available before, leading to a more accurate diagnosis. AI can also help the fertilization process, as it can aid in selecting the most viable sperm and egg, and identify the best embryos for implantation. Zamip also adds that AI can assist in the genetic analysis of blastocysts and how it may help avoid discarding embryos unnecessarily. We consider the potential benefits of AI alongside the ethical implications of using AI in such delicate procedures. Although AI can dramatically improve the healthcare industry and revolutionize treatments for men's health, both doctors agree that there is a need for a humanistic touch in the medical field, even as AI becomes more advanced. --- RESOURCES WellPrept https://wellprept.com/

Today, on The Egg Whisperer Show podcast, I'm sharing an interview hosted by Dr. Nabil Arrach. In this interview, you'll get a behind the scenes look at my work and learn about some of what's coming up (The Egg Whisperer App!) and how I originally got the name "The Egg Whisperer." Plus, I am sharing about how I work with patients. I know that I approach things a little differently than many doctors. I come from a family of OB GYNs (my grandfather and father), and I love being able to treat patients the way I would want my own family to be treated. This means that sometimes, patients come to my house to get shots. It means that I talk to people about what happens if the treatment we have planned doesn't work for them. Each treatment is personalized for each patient, and each patient gets my undivided attention. Because for me, it all comes down to love. Fertility patients want to bring more love into the world, and I feel I am the luckiest person around, knowing that I get to help them do just that. If you want to learn more, I invite you to tune in. And, I want to give Dr. Arrach and his team a very special thank you including me on their show at Progenesis Academy!

AI seems to be everywhere...including assisted reproductive technology! Daniella Gilboa was working on her PhD research when she realized the potential of data and AI in improving IVF care. She quickly transitioned from the world of academia to leading a start-up company. The company, AIVF, is already in some fertility clinics and the technology is helping embryologists with embryo selection (among other things), empowering patients to be able to see the data associated with their embryos, and, as she puts it, "use digital transformation to allow clinics to be more efficient, more accurate, more accessible, shorten the time to pregnancy, and meet the growing demand". Listen to learn how although the demand for IVF has grown in the past 45 years, the clinics haven't changed--until now!

It's pretty obvious that Joni Hanson Davis is passionate about fertility and vitamins. She shares that creating her vitamin company, Beli, was an eye opening experience. There was an apparent lack of focus on vitamins for fertility in the supplement industry. She also found that a majority of the vitamins for prenatal care were not as specialized as they should have been and many lacked quality ingredients.One of my biggest takeaways from this episode is that men should be focusing on fertility vitamins as well as women. It makes total sense but is a pretty common thing to overlook. Joni also comments on research that still needs to be done regarding vitamins and fertility.Check out the great blog Beli has created at www.belibaby.com and follow Beli on Instagram.com/beli.babyYou can visit all of our sponsors here.You can support my efforts to bring you episodes about health and wellness topics via Patreon.Follow me via All In Health and Wellness on Facebook or Instagram.Find my books on Amazon: No More Sugar Coating: Finding Your Happiness in a Crowded World and Confidence Through Health: Life the Healthy Lifestyle God DesignedMusic credit: Ryan The Son, hear more from Ryan The Son on Instagram, YouTube or SpotifyProduction credit: Social Media Cowboys
Today I'm speaking with a fertility care practitioner! Your menstrual cycle is considered your 5th vital sign. She shared that not only is it good to track your cycle to know when you're ovulating, but to also look at it as an indicator for your health. Irregular periods are one sign but not the only sign of an imbalance or something going on with your body. She also talks about birth control and natural family planning. We also go over menopause and her opinion on getting “fixed” for either male or females after studying this topic. I learned a lot in this episode and am starting to track my own cycle to understand my health better as well!
This week I share about using the practice of Yoni Steaming for optimizing fertility. In my opinion, there isn't a Yoni steaming protocol or blend of herbs that are indicated for all women that are TTC. We are always looking to improve root imbalances when working with any cycle irregularities or hormonal imbalances. With that said, there are some aspects of Yoni steaming that are useful across the board for women that are TTC -

Ania Volovique is a self-proclaimed queen of personal reinvention. A move across the world at the age of 10 led her on a lifelong search for a sense of belonging. Through many years of personal development, reinvention and looking within, Ania found what she was seeking….only it came in the form of brain cancer. Recognizing the undeniable link between the mind and body, Ania firmly believes in the accessibility of this power to everyone. That is precisely why she developed her life-changing program, appropriately named "REBIRTH", which serves as a catalyst for profound transformation. Ania Volovique is a Somatic Coach, Master NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and Mental and Emotional Release Practitioner. But beyond these titles, Ania is deeply devoted to her own spiritual growth and using her experience and personal healing journey to guide women on their transformative paths of self-discovery - especially during significant transitions like birth, death and rebirth.
