Deficiency of this One Vitamin is Associated with Twice the Risk of Miscarriage
When it comes to miscarriage risk prevention we have to consider preconception care. Over the years more research has shed light on how lifestyle, diet, preconception health can predispose or reduce the risk of miscarriage for patients. When we support patients who are dealing with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) and there is no identifiable cause, we need to start digging a bit deeper to these modifiable risk factors to determine if we can help identify potential cause(s) for the recurrent miscarriages.
A new research paper published in the Journal of Fertility and Sterility in 2022 published data collected from 10 different research papers (4 randomized clinical trials and 6 observational studies) and found that deficiency in a particular vitamin was associated with an increased risk for miscarriage.
The Common and Hidden Cause of Sperm-Factor Infertility Affecting Around 12% of Patients
It is estimated in some studies that sperm-factor infertility affects upwards of 60% of infertility cases in couples. Yet, it is too common to hear from patients that very little attention was given to their male partners during the treatment plan and workup.

It is important for patients to be informed as to which numbers are good, which ones are low, and which tests (if any) were not completed as a part of the baseline testing but are available. This is due to the fact that research over the last few years has emphasized the importance of advance sperm function tests, usually not included in the basic sperm analysis test.

PCOS Fertility Acupuncture to Increase Uterine Lining Thickness, Follicle Growth & Implantation
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can significantly affect chances of conceiving due to both follicle development/ovulatory issues and poor endometrial receptivity (negatively affecting implantation rates). One of the mainstay treatment options used in conventional medicine for supporting ovulation and fertility with PCOS is the medication letrozole (inhibits the activity of an enzyme called aromatase in the body).
