Screening for environmental toxins is fundamental to finding out why you can't conceive with IVF. The problem is, it's no longer a question of "if" you have toxins, but more "what" toxins and "is" your toxic burden stopping you becoming a parent?
Are Heavy Metals A Problem?
Heavy metals play a major role in fertility problems and prevent IVF success, which is why we screen for them. They influence key fertility hormones and also increase the risk of problems like PCOS, ovulation, pregnancy loss and endometriosis.
Are Endocrine Disruptors A Cause?
Endocrine disrupting chemicals are chemicals that interfere with hormone balance and can stop IVF from working which is why we screen for them. For example, they can mimic or block hormones, and/or affect their metabolism.
Mycotoxins, Endo Toxins And Fertility
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins produced by certain moulds found in food and act as endocrine disruptors which is why we screen for them. Endo toxins are produced by your digestive system. Both can be hidden causes to fertility troubles.
