Frequently Asked Fertility Questions

Welcome to our growing library of frequently asked fertility questions answered by leading natural fertility specialist Gabriela Rosa.

This FAQ library is provided to help you find answers to some of the frequently asked fertility questions people ask us here at Natural Fertility Breakthrough. We believe knowledge is empowering so our approach to natural fertility is supportive and education-based to help you learn how to optimise your fertility through insight about your body’s natural fertility signals.

There's so much information available nowadays it can be hard to know which information to apply. Clients too often come to us exhausted, frustrated and despairing, overwhelmed with all the conflicting advice out there. We share answers here from general to specialist medical and fertility health issues based on almost 20 years of professional experience in the field of natural fertility.

On a daily basis our natural fertility experts answer questions about personal, specific, infertility and fertility challenges. Here you'll find links to information about ovarian reserve and age, IVF and miscarriages, questions about nutrition, diet and supplements, questions about how lifestyle factors impact fertility or contribute to infertility, plus questions about our favourite fertility topic "unexplained infertility". To download a searchable copy of the library click here.

Fertility specialist Gabriela Rosa offers practical advice on how to optimise your chances of getting pregnant fast, even if you are over 40 or think you may need to use IVF/ICSI

We encourage you to ask questions, seek answers and learn from other peoples experience, their questions, and answers because it is our experience that with fertility, as in life, there’s always the things we don’t know, that we don't know. Get educated, find out as much as you possibly can about your own fertility situation because when it comes to "infertility" it's the things that we don't know, we don't know, that keep us stuck.

Once you actually identify your individual minor factors - all the little things that can play a cumulative role in your fertility - then it’s a lot easier to regain control, take action and make a difference to your fertility outcomes.

If you don't see an answer to your fertility question here you can try searching the fertility blog or connect via Facebook and fire your questions our way. Another option we encourage is participating in the #TheFertilityChallenge, from where most of these questions are sourced and answered.  If you require more specific information about your personal fertility journey please take the free fertility discovery questionnaire.
