Infertility

Our clinic offers preconception treatments for couples trying to conceive and for couples struggling with infertility. Dr. Natasha Montroy, ND has provided fertility care for couples trying to achieve a pregnancy for over 8 years and works with patients in collaboration with the Victoria Fertility Clinic. She is a members of the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada (IAAC) and The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) and offers care for couples trying to conceive both naturally and with assisted reproductive therapies. Preconception treatments are offered to ensure that each potential parent is in optimal reproductive health, with a healthy body terrain, ideal for the creation of a healthy baby. We recommend ideally 3 months of preconception care to ensure adequate nutrition to developing eggs and sperm.

We offer treatment for conditions that may contribute to subfertility including:

  • Luteal phase defects
  • Long or short menstrual cycles
  • Uterine fibroids and endometriosis
  • Dysmennorhea or menstrual irregularities
  • Advanced maternal or paternal age

In addition to Natural Fertility Treatments and Fertility Acupuncture, our team can also work in conjunction with conventional medical fertility therapies. We work in collaboration with The Victoria Fertility Centre offering protocols to better support assisted reproductive therapies such as medicated fertility cycles, IUI, IVF and ICSI to optimize your chances of conceiving. Numerous studies on specific nutrients, botanical medicines, homeopathics and acupuncture treatments have been shown to improve fertility rates. Acupuncture and other treatments are offered pre and post IUI and IVF.
