Fertility Testing For Females {Functional Medicine}

Outside of the normal hormone blood work that your doctor might do for you, I want to show you holistic functional medicine fertility testing for females that can give you the answers you are desperately searching for. I’m confident in saying that because many women who come to our practice are at a lost + the only solution their doctors can give them is IVF.

Like you, many women are searching for MORE answers + want to exhaust every option before committing to something big like IVF. So, let’s go ahead and dive into the fertility testing for females!

Top Fertility Testing For Females

DUTCH {Dried Urine Testing Comprehensive Hormones}

The most common testing when you think of fertility is hormones! The DUTCH test is one of the most comprehensive look at hormones I’ve ever seen. This can not only show you hormone levels of your sex hormones, but it can show you how you detox your sex hormones. This gives you insight on liver detoxification!

One of my favorite things about the DUTCH test is that it also looks at ADRENALS! This is a huge part of sex hormone balance is overlooked! Understanding where your stress hormones lie can give you insight on how that affects estrogen, progesterone, testosterone. Remember, your sex hormones are usually the last dominos to fall, so they are just listening to everything else the body is telling you! STRESS INCLUDED!

Stool Testing {Comprehensive Stool Analysis}

This sounds a little crazy. But, I promise there is reason for it! Stool testing should be a part of great fertility testing for females! This is because chronic gut imbalances can be very stressful on the body and produce low grade chronic inflammation that can affect your fertility.

Certain gut imbalances can also cause certain enzymes in the gut to REABSORB hormones, like estrogen. This reabsorption can cause more estrogen to recirculate and cause estrogen dominance. Remember that all hormones are GOLDILOCKS. Balance is key!

So, if we’re really looking for the root cause foundation, gut health NEEDS to be a priority in maximizing fertility!

Micronutrient Testing {Vitamin + Mineral Deficiencies}

Last, but certainly not least, women have to know their foundational nutrient levels. These nutrients are the backbone to allllll cellular processes. Concerning hormones, nutrients can help build hormones, produce hormones, utilize hormones, + get rid of hormones when they are done doing their job for the body!

How incredible is that? In our micronutrient testing, we test both nutrient levels inside the cell and what’s floating around in the blood serum. This can give you a comprehensive look at your nutrient levels + if they are getting inside the cell (where the party is at! 🎉)
