Infertility Q & A

by Uzzi Reiss, MD

What is Dr. Reiss's role in treating infertility?

Dr. Reiss does not replace a primary infertility physician. Many times, infertility results from hormonal, nutritional, stress, gut, and inflammatory conditions that are not taken into consideration in regular treatment modalities. Balancing the whole rainbow of hormones in the body, correcting the nutritional deficiency, improving the gut function, reducing heavy metal are all essential in increasing fertility success.

What causes infertility?

Approximately one out of every six couples grapples with infertility. The man or the woman, or both, may have a condition that’s preventing pregnancy. For women, common reasons for infertility include:

  • Ovulation problems: Due to hormonal imbalances, tumors or cysts, alcohol use, thyroid problems, excess weight, and stress
  • Damage to the reproductive organs: Including pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, scar tissue, previous ectopic pregnancies, or a chronic illness
  • Abnormal cervical mucus

Men may have trouble with sperm production or sperm transport. It is recommended you work with an infertility specialist to determine the likely cause of your issue. Dr. Reiss will support treatment, but not replace treatment from a fertility specialist.

How can hormonal support help with infertility?

Hormonal support can resolve issues with hormone imbalances that are interfering with your ability to get pregnant. Dr. Reiss offers bioidentical hormone therapy, which uses natural hormones to restore your levels. Your hormone levels may be disrupted by stress, nutrient intake, infection, exposure to environmental pollution, your body fat levels, and mild dehydration.

Dr. Reiss conducts a hormone analysis to create a customized combination of hormones to treat your specific needs. These may include estradiol, Estrone, DHEA, and progesterone. Irregular periods, mood swings, cold hands and feet, breast tenderness, fatigue, dry skin, and hair loss all indicate possible hormone imbalances.

What nutritional therapies treat infertility?

Dr. Reiss can offer nutritional guidance to enhance fertility, decrease pregnancy loss, and avoid abnormal pregnancies. He can help both men and women reach a healthy weight, which supports fertility. Women should also seek to get plenty of iron-rich vegetables to reduce the risk of ovulatory infertility, including:

  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Spinach
  • Fortified cereals

Diets that include more monounsaturated fats, less animal protein and more vegetarian sources, higher fiber foods, and high-fat dairy also support fertility.

Dr. Reiss also helps ensure you get plenty of folic acid. This mineral doesn’t increase your ability to get pregnant, but supports the health of your fetus when you do conceive. Dark leafy green vegetables and fortified grains are good sources. Folic acid prevents neural tube defects.
