A study conducted by the University of Surrey showed that previously infertile couples who made changes to their diet and took nutritional supplements had an 80% success rate of conception 1. Given the fact that the success rate for IVF is around 20%, nutrition is worth exploring if you are concerned about your fertility.
I work with individuals and couples to provide tailored nutrition and lifestyle advice to optimise their chances of achieving a healthy pregnancy. Consultations take place at my [dc1]clinics in Harley Street, the City of London, and Hertfordshire[/dc1][dc2]clinic in Dublin[/dc2]. Online consultations are recommended for long-distance and international clients.
By taking a detailed case history, I aim to uncover and address any factors which may be causing fertility problems. I advise that couples come to see me three months before trying to conceive. This is because it takes nearly three months for the egg to mature ready for ovulation, and sperm to develop.
