Why Am I Not Conceiving? (And Why You Need to Believe to Conceive)
When you decided to try and get pregnant you most likely figured it would be just a matter of a few months. After all, women get pregnant all the time.
Sometimes even by accident!
So according to the natural way of the world, as a healthy female, as soon as you made the decision to not prevent pregnancy you should conceive.
But it doesn’t always work that way.
There are so many factors that come into play when it comes to conception and fertility. There is age, hormonal levels, environmental factors, nutritional deficiencies, stress and more.
The conventional medical field has made tremendous advances in fertility with IVF and A.R.T. treatments, but there are vital steps you can take before resorting to that rollercoaster technology.
Let me tell my (and my wife’s) personal story and you’ll understand better what I am getting at.
Years ago, my wife and I decided to have another baby.
Despite giving birth to a beautiful and healthy boy Sean 12 years prior, we could not get pregnant no matter how hard we tried.
Eventually, after nine long years of trying all the ways we thought possible to get pregnant, we finally received the devastating diagnoses of unexplained infertility and secondary infertility.
We were shattered.
Basically the doctors were admitting that they had no idea why we couldn’t get pregnant.
My beautiful wife Sandy and I wanted a second baby more than anything in the world.
What else could we possibly do?
Sandy began to doubt her own femininity and constantly beat herself up with the unceasing question, “Why am I not conceiving?”.
It was a very difficult period in our lives.
Just around that time I was introduced to my mentor, Terry Hoffman, who has been a tremendous influence in my life. One of things we spoke about what the work of Simon Sinek, finding out your “why”. Really we discussed this regarding my work direction, but something inside me just clicked fo me after reading his book.
Over the years Sandy and I were so overly focused and determined on the baby (the what or the product), that we lost track a bit of the process and our why.
I told Sandy that we need to apply the principles of finding out “why” to our fertility issues.
First of all we dug deep inside ourselves to uncover our motivation for wanting another child. We wanted a brother for Sean and more than anything we wanted to bring another child into the loving embrace of our family so we could give and nurture him/her into being a wonderful human being who will impact our world.
Once we identified and verbalized our “why” for wanting so badly to conceive, we went on a mission to find out practically “why” we couldn’t conceive. For years I had helped patients get to the root of their various medical issues using the tools and principles of functional medicine.
Now it was time to apply this to our lives and health.
Sandy underwent specialized lab testing not usually given my conventional doctors that did a deep dive into her hormone levels and system functioning. These test indicated that she was deficient in progesterone and her high stress levels were affecting her ability to conceive as well.
With our visceral knowledge of why we wanted with all our hearts to conceive our determination to succeed knew no bounds. We analyzed our lives to see where we could make life changes to decrease or eliminate the stress that was preventing Sandy from the best chances for conception.
We became laser focus on the process that we now call our conception correction method.
Together we changed our diets to include nutrients that support fertility (in addition to the prenatal supplements Sandy was already taking) and we made a commitment to avoid environmental toxins such as phthalates and parabens were playing a part interrupting our own hormones in our body.
We also visualized how it would be to finally get the news that we were pregnant and pictured holding that long awaited beautiful bundle of sweet newborn goodness in our arms.
Within 3 months we were pregnant!
What was the secret to our success?
It was a combination of truly believing that it would happen for us, knowing our why and most importantly, we were able to do the right tests and find the right pieces to solve our conception puzzle.
The same can happen to you.
Don’t believe the dire predictions of medical doctors.
Most of them are not aware of the extensive testing available to you that will enable you to map out your cycle and find out what is standing in the way of successful conception. Once you have that information, with the right support and team, you will embark on a lifestyle modification plan that will get you to your goal.
Once you know your “why” and your “how” there is no stopping you. By following the conception correction roadmap and keeping your eye and imagination on the goal of giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby, you have all the puzzle pieces in place.
Your dream can truly become a reality in less time than you ever thought possible.
You need to believe to conceive!
After years of disappointments month after month, you can finally expect good news on the horizon.
There are tests you can take and changes you can make. You just need to find the right doctor who understands the functional approach and can guide you through the process.
