Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse for women 34 and younger (or six months for women 35 and older). The likelihood of getting pregnant naturally drops from 78% to 63% at age 30 (only to progressively decrease to 36% during the age range of 40-44).
Infertility, the word, treatment options and money are all irrelevant until you are faced with the reality that you haven’t gotten pregnant yet. That’s when you start realizing that getting pregnant isn’t as easy as it used to be. A treatment option that should be considered is Mercier Therapy, a natural visceral pelvic manipulation treatment. Jennifer Mercier, the one who invented this therapy, completed a 4 year study where she had an 83% success rate for pregnancy and live births when compared to IVF’s success rate of 18%.
The treatment regimen involves massaging of the pelvis and lower back to increase blood flow to the region, a tea to drink twice a day and supplements to reduce the levels of inflammation in the body as well as multi-vitamins (if not already prescribed by the doctor). These are all recommended supplements and are not mandatory for the therapy. Mercier Therapy is done within 4 to 6 weekly appointments each lasting approximately 30- 60 minutes, which will include massaging and lessons on charting ovulation. This treatment protocol needs to be completed PRIOR to starting IVF treatment.
Mercier Therapy has been shown to work well for women with the following conditions:
· Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
·Pelvic Scarring (from past surgical procedures)
· Pelvic Pain
