As women, we are genetically programmed to be able to create and sustain life. At times, it may be a difficult and a stressful process. Timing your cycles, watching your calendar, and adding pressure to your intimacy can be a disappointing and depleting experience.
Dr. Sidiq wants his patients to understand that pregnancy is not as simple as it may seem. It is important to note that there are only six days during any cycle when a woman can get pregnant – the five days leading up to ovulation and the 24 hours after ovulation. A woman may believe she is experiencing infertility, but the timing and environmental factors may be affecting the chances of implantation and pregnancy.
If a woman is experiencing infertility that cannot be treated by holistic approaches, Dr. Sidiq may propose hormone therapy and other options.
One patient explained her struggles on what she believed to be infertility. Dr. Sidiq helped her come to the understanding that she was not infertile, just very stressed and “trying” at the wrong times. Dr. Sidiq’s main goal in treating her was to console the patient so as to eliminate stress and pressure around pregnancy and instead create an environment that was conducive to conception. The patient underwent very few procedures before she was able to conceive with her newly-wed husband.
