In Traditional Chinese Medicine the health of the egg and the sperm at the time of conception translates into the constitutional health of the baby. Therefore, the healthier you and your partner are in the preconception stage, the better.

What a roller coaster, this diagnosis called "infertility." Accompanying this diagnosis there are numerous infertility treatments to consider. Resolving infertility can seem to be multi-faceted; amid this, I invite you to increase your fertility awareness by knowing the difference between "fertility" and "infertility."
Male factor infertility, female infertility, and unexplained infertility all have one thing in common: a focus on infertility. Obviously, if you are not pregnant yet, then infertility is what is true for you. I would like to propose though, that it is vitally important for you to shift your focus to "fertility" in trying to conceive. Just this simple shift in focus puts you on a different journey: one that puts you in line with information, doctors, herbs, fertility specialists or practitioners, and other fertility options, that will direct you to a successful outcome of pregnancy and healthy birth!!!
When your focus is on "infertility," it is too easy to find yourself lining up with that which is incompatible with fertility or unsuccessful. No doubt about it, fertility issues are real. I am by no means attempting to make light of that. My objective is to have you recognize that the difference between getting pregnant or not, amidst all the other efforts you are making for your fertility success, might be being overlooked.
This is an absolutely crucial distinction to consider; one that I recommend you not take lightly. It is also the biggest secret that you are least likely to hear from your primary care provider or conception specialist.
