Infertility Q & A

What is infertility?

Infertility is the inability to conceive. There are two types of infertility:

Primary infertility

Primary infertility is when you’re unable to get pregnant after 12 months of trying without using any form of birth control.

Secondary infertility

Secondary infertility means you were able to get pregnant at least once, but you’re now unable to conceive.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, specializes in infertility and completed a year long mentorship program in integrative treatment methods for infertility. She takes a holistic and personalized approach to care, using natural and Ayurvedic medicine to rebalance the body, optimize health, and improve egg quality.

What causes infertility?

Infertility is a complex condition that develops from many causes, including emotional and physical. Though women often feel responsible when unable to conceive, the cause of infertility is equal between the sexes.

Some of the common causes of infertility in women include:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Unhealthy lifestyle habits (alcohol consumption or use of tobacco products)
  • Exercising too much
  • Poor nutrition
  • Age
  • Underlying medical conditions like diabetes or clotting disorder

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common causes of infertility in women. With PCOS, you may have fewer than eight menstrual cycles a year.
