Finding Your Fertility When You Have Endometriosis w/Lizzie Alexander, PhD
Fertility issues are very common for women these days, but what happens if you have the added layer of endometriosis?
For those that don’t know, endometriosis is a condition where the uterine lining grows outside of the uterus (when it should only be inside of the uterus) and causes an incredible amount of pain both during a woman’s period and ovulation, and for some women, throughout the month.
In today’s interview, I chat with Lizzie Alexander, PhD, The Endo Fertility Specialist. She works with women who have endometriosis who have struggled to get pregnant by getting to the root issues at play.
*How to get diagnosed with endometriosis (it often takes YEARS, and Lizzie shares with us how to cut that time way down)
*Exactly how endo inhibits fertility
*How inflammation is at the center of endometriosis, and what you can do about it
*What hormones are at play, and what hormone testing can help
*She shares her story of successfully getting pregnant after waiting over 25 years to get diagnosed with endo
This is a powerful discussion that really breaks down exactly why it’s hard to conceive if you have endometriosis. Not to mention the fact that there are women who are having trouble conceiving that don’t even realize they have endo.
