Fairhaven Health, a leading supplier of natural fertility, pregnancy and nursing related products, offers a compelling “first step” for couples experiencing difficulty in conceiving.
Having a baby can be a miraculous, life-changing experience. Unfortunately, for many, achieving pregnancy can be a challenging and stressful experience as well. According to the American Pregnancy Association, more than six million women in the U.S. have been diagnosed with infertility issues and these statistics are increasing every year. Roughly 1 in 6 couples will have difficulty conceiving.
Historically, couples with infertility issues have been steered toward prescription drugs and costly, invasive treatments to help them become pregnant. However, thanks to a greater availability of online research along with a wider acceptance of alternative medicine, many are now turning to natural solutions before resorting to costly medical interventions. Fairhaven Health has partnered with leading fertility expert and OB-GYN, Dr. Amos Grunebaum, to create a product line that helps couples conceive naturally. Once pregnant, Fairhaven Health offers products that provide the nutritional support women need to help ensure a healthy pregnancy and beyond.
But Fairhaven Health products are not just for couples who are having difficulty in conceiving, says Dr. Grunebaum. “Our FertilAid supplements are very popular with couples who are just beginning their conception efforts. These couples are simply looking to accelerate the time in which they are able to achieve pregnancy, and to do so in as healthy a manner as possible.”
Fairhaven Health products receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from trying-to-conceive couples. Customers write in daily to share their own positive success stories, many of which had been trying to conceive for years without success.
Factors That Contribute to Difficulty in Conceiving:
As women have entered the working world in increasing numbers, the average age at which they begin trying to conceive has risen. Unfortunately, a woman's ability to release healthy eggs for fertilization gradually declines. According to the American Fertility Association, the probability of having a baby decreases 3-5% per year after the age of 30.
Nutrition & Lifestyle
In today's hectic world, many people simply do not properly address their nutritional needs. Additionally, excess weight leads to decreased fertility and is among the main factors in preventing pregnancy. Here, certain vitamins, nutritional supplements, and dietary changes can help to restore hormonal balance and improve a couple's chances of having a healthy baby. In addition, drinking alcohol, caffeine intake and smoking can negatively impact conception odds.
As conception can only occur 4-5 days prior to and on the day of ovulation, determining this 'fertile window' each cycle is critically important. Often times when a woman has an irregular cycle, i.e. a cycle length of under 21 days or over 36, determining this ovulation date can prove challenging. Hormonal imbalance is an underlying factor of cycle irregularity and may cause women to not ovulate at all or to skip periods. Being overweight, excessive exercise and high stress levels can also contribute to irregular cycles.
