Description

The demographic of women trying to achieve conception is changing.  In fact, women over age 40 is the only age group where pregnancy rates are going up!  This presentation will discuss the concept and physiology of reproductive aging and will discuss how you can proactively and reactively care for women as they try for conception in their late 30s through 40s.  Naturopathic/functional medicine testing and treatment approaches will be reviewed, including lifestyle factors and supplementation options.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will be able to: 

  • Feel comfortable interpreting labs to determine whether egg quality and reproductive aging are a fertility factor for the patient.
  • Investigate the most likely underlying functional causes of declining egg quality.
  • Confidently design evidence-based treatment plans containing nutrients and botanicals which can address physiological causes of declining egg quality and promote maximum fertility in this patient population.
