Unexplained fertility may be one of the most frustrating diagnoses a patient can receive. The truth is, however, often with “unexplained” infertility, there is actually a cause, but it has yet to be identified. 

This is where integrative + functional medicine can really shine, because the goal with this type of care is to become detectives, looking for subtle clues from the body that something might be out of balance. 

Some of the most common contributors to unexplained infertility that we see in our clinic include:

  • Clinical or subclinical micronutrient deficiency 
  • Chronic, undiagnosed gut infections
  • Excessive oxidative stress/inflammation
  • Microbiome imbalances 
  • Nervous system dysfunction 
  • Thyroid/endocrine issues 

Building Your Fertility Team

One of the things that really sets our integrative fertility acupuncture clinic apart from many here in San Diego is that in addition to creating customized plans for acupuncture, herbs, supplements + nutrition, we also offer testing for all of the common issues listed above.

From basic blood tests to function labs to look at micronutrient levels, oxidative stress, microbiome health, and more, our doctors can help you take a deep look at where there may be imbalances… and then we can help you tackle them!

Unexplained infertility doesn’t have to be the end of your fertility journey.
