Maria and Michael: I suffered through years of debilitating PMS that other doctors called normal.  Fainting from pain and having to take days off work each month was not normal.   The Fertility Care doctor diagnosed dysmenorrhea, signs of insulin resistance (a precursor to diabetes) and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (a leading cause of infertility).

Baby CAlmost immediately, my symptoms were stabilized.  Everyone close to me commented on the difference in my personality.  My body was no longer my enemy.  Initially, we use the Creighton Model Fertility Care system to avoid pregnancy while the doctors were curing my various medical conditions.  Once we were no longer haunted by the leading cause of infertility, we conceived our son on our first attempt.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PCOS?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal imbalance that causes the ovaries to malfunction and is the most common hormonal disorder in women.  The classic signs are a long or irregular cycle.

What is endometriosis?

This is a condition where cells from within the uterus move and implant themselves in other locations.  When the cells take up their new location they continue to be hormonally responsive.  Some women experience no symptoms; others suffer severe menstrual cramps and painful intercourse.  This condition is often associated with infertility.

What is dysmenorrhea?

Severe menstrual cramps.  The primary cause is an excess of one hormone, which causes uterine contractions, which causes the pain of cramps.

What is PMS?

Premenstrual syndrome that affects 40% of women approximately 7-10 days before their period.  Symptoms include: irritability, breast tenderness, bloating, weight gain, cravings for carbohydrates, crying easily, depression, headaches and insomnia.  Often the cause of PMS is a hormonal imbalance that we can easily treat.

What is postpartum depression?

Up to 40% of women experience this condition usually within 3 weeks of delivery.  Progesterone injections are 95% effective in halting this condition and far exceed the effectiveness of either psychotherapy or antidepressants.
