The role of the Reproductive Microbiome on reproductive health and miscarriage risk is something we simply can no longer ignore…
Upwards of 19% of Patients trying to conceive were estimated to have an imbalance in their Reproductive Microbiome in one study. Make sure you are speaking with a licensed healthcare provider in detail regarding this if you haven’t already, and if you have questions, please reach out to us 📥

PSA if you don’t have access to power ⚡️ at home and you need to sterilize baby’s bottles:
-Sterilizing bottles is an added step recommended for babies under 3 months of age as their immune system is still developing
-CDC has the following procedure recommended to sanitize baby bottles 🍼 if you don’t have access to boiling water or bottle steamers:
1. Prepare a bleach solution of 2 teaspoons of unscented bleach per gallon (16 cups) of water in a clean wash basin.
2. Put all items completely underwater. Make sure the solution touches all parts and there are no air bubbles in the bottles.
3. Squeeze solution through ni**le holes and soak items in solution for at least 2 minutes.
4. Remove with clean hands or tongs. Do not rinse because germs could get back onto the sanitized items. Any remaining bleach will break down quickly as it dries and will not hurt your baby. This process is similar to what is done to sanitize dishes in restaurants.
5. After sanitizing, place items on a clean, unused dish towel or paper towel in an area protected from dirt and dust. Allow to air-dry thoroughly before storing. Do not use a dish towel to rub or pat items dry because doing so may transfer germs to the items.

More research on how the microbiome in the urogentical tract and in seminal fluid can impact s***m health parameters was recently published in the American Journal of Reproductive Immunology 📚

Evaluating for infections and dysbiosis of the urogenital tract (and discovering its cause) are an essential part of supporting healthy fertility!

A newly published paper in The Lancet continues to recommend consideration of thyroid hormone therapy for patients with recurrent miscarriages if they:

(a) test positive for thyroid antibodies
(b) have a TSH above 2.5 mU/L

Have you had these levels checked? I often send patients with a history of recurrent miscarriages for these additional tests since they haven’t previously been considered or even mentioned to them in many cases!

Reason why I love working in Reproductive & Fertility Care #429:
There is constantly new research being published, over 130 new abstracts and various new research papers reviewed in this last week alone.
For years I have been in awe of how much new data and research is published annually, well over 5000+ new papers per year.
In order to provide optimal care for our Patients it has been my commitment for years to sit down once a week and go through all of these abstracts and read relevant research papers. It can take hours every week to do this!
At least 40/52 weeks a year there is mind-blowing new research that makes me think “why is no one talking about this?!” Which is why I started years ago sharing research updates in our newsletter on a weekly basis.

Patients sometimes tell me that this is what their Doctor told them to their face or something like: “but you don’t have a moustache or beard” when they ask about PCOS🤦🏽‍♂️
PCOS does not look the same for Patients, there are many variations of how it can present, and the testing needs to be thorough, not just an HbA1c (which is not even part of the Rotterdam diagnostic criteria). Often it is diagnosed incidentally even though patients are having healthy regular periods, we see elevated androgens + cystic ovaries, for example. Treatment has to be specific to you and your test results because otherwise it is associated with an increased risk of: cardiovascular disease, mood disorders, diabetes and might be associated with an increased risk of miscarriage in the first trimester.

Something I often get asked a lot from patients is: “do you think I have _____?” Because another healthcare provider told them they might have this, but never offered testing to confirm.
No one likes uncertainty when dealing with Infertility, if we are concerned about a specific disorder I will advocate for testing the full diagnostic criteria 🧪

04/06/2022

This cannot be stressed enough! I often see patients that have for months or years just assumed there was nothing to do about their lower than optimal motility, concentration or normal morphology. There was no follow-up for them, they just received the results and were given no direction about what to do next. For some Patients these numbers are actually modifiable and can be improved with appropriate evidence based lifestyle, dietary and nutraceutical interventions. This can be a game changer for couples where treatment options may have been limited due to some of these lower numbers! More information about this on our website with link in Bio 👉🏽

New Study Alert 🚨: partners of patients with recurrent pregnancy loss were found to have significantly reduced inflammatory cytokines in seminal fluid + increased s***m concentration and normal s***m morphology levels.
Why is this important? Increased inflammation and oxidative stress are some of the main drivers for increased DNA fragmentation rates and this can contribute to increased miscarriage risk!

Patient care to me is so much more than just healthcare. Spending moments with my patients when they have consults just to check in with everything else that is going on in the World is quite common everyday. As I’m back in the office this week, some patients have been wanting to speak about stuff not directly related to their health. Sometimes that involves tears, smiles + laughs, advice about life in general and occasionally trading recipes. My goal is to make sure everyone walks away from the consult feeling better than when they came in. And that involves good healthcare + patient care.

Your Old coping strategies will not work. Many people share with me that they have been using their pre-pandemic coping strategies for almost two years while stress, fear, pressure, or frustration continue to reach all time highs. And as a result are facing significant challenges with the their mental well-being.
Helpful activities to include for the foreseeable future:
-Meditation + Mindfulness activities
-Breathing exercises
-Physical exercise
-Time to rest and relax

Birth control and pain meds are not the only options available to you if you are trying to ditch chronic/recurring symptoms! Your ‘normal’ can vary quite a bit from painless/barely noticeable to significantly uncomfortable. Supporting healthy cycles and healthy hormone balance is important, not to be dismissed or brushed aside!

FERTILITY IS MORE THAN JUST S***M AND EGGS:

Following up with another patient recently that had noticed, in addition to supporting Fertility:
Improved mood and reduced anxiety
Improved digestive function
Increased energy
Less fatigue
Improved weight

Patients often wonder why we look at all of these things when we are supposed to be just working on improving Fertility? The truth is that Fertility is a multifaceted condition! It is about more than just a gamete, and involves mental and emotional well-being, metabolic health, optimal hormone function, healthy Microbiomes and much more.
Treating and supporting Fertility involves a BIG picture approach to treat the patient and not just symptoms.

Disclaimer: I meditate and do Yoga daily, and have been for the last 15 years.
And I strongly advocate for it. One thing I see very often in consults are patients who ‘aren’t stressed’ but also have unexplained issues:
-falling asleep
-disconnecting from work
-feelings of nervousness
-feeling overwhelmed
Meditation and Yoga are simple and cost effective supportive options that can support not only your Fertility, but overall well-being!

Name a more iconic healthy supplement, I’ll wait…😂
But seriously, not all probiotics are equal, and the research behind specific strains of bacteria for different benefits is constantly growing. Strains of probiotics to support healthy mood, immune function, reproductive function, digestive health and the list goes on and on…
So the random probiotic you picked up from a health food store may not be all that, but instead speaking with a licensed healthcare provider to use targeted treatments for your condition is more likely to have a benefit
