The Holistic Perspective: Hormonal Health & Fertility
I hear stories every day from clients, from followers, and from women in health related Facebook groups about how their doctor actively prevented them from getting the help they need in one way or another.
I’ve experienced it myself. I moved 6 years ago and had a hard time finding a doctor that didn’t want to just give me birth control for my PCOS and after a couple tries I just gave up. I recently decided to find a primary care physician and had a better experience than I expected.
It was kind of a wake up call, to be honest. Why do we just give up when we can’t find the help we need? Why is it so common for doctors to be resistant to new ideas and alternative therapies? I hate that the medical world is like this. I hate that women have to suffer because of it.
So, in today’s episode I talk a little bit about how you can advocate for yourself in your doctor’s office and what you can do if you feel like you’ve been treated poorly by a doctor. I also talk about the resource I created in response to the questions I see everyday about finding a doctor that will HELP fertility, and not hurt it. (Remember, fertility isn’t just about making babies).
If you have a story to share about advocating for yourself, please send it to me at email@example.com or by sending me a voice message.
