GI Tract Problems Preceding Hormone Problems & Infertility

“For 13 years I was on birth control pills to control an otherwise unbearable menstrual cycle. Cycle length would very from 2 to 5 weeks, cramping was debilitating enough to send me home from school, and menstrual flow was extremely heavy. BCP’s were a relief, and I never imagined anything else would fix my otherwise very difficult cycle. However, a year ago I started seeing Dr. Husbands with the initial intention of addressing what western medicine classified as “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” or IBS (that’s code for we have no idea what is wrong with your guts so you will just classify you as having IBS). Dr. Husbands was able to address my IBS by changing my eating habits, and introducing high quality and relevant supplements, all of which he recommended after taking several diagnostic tests. What I didn’t expect, was that by changing my diet and supplement intake, I would reap other benefits as well. My husband and I had decided that we wanted to try and have a family. Based on my history, I was petrified to go off the pill. However as per Dr. Husbands recommendation, I did, and I couldn’t have been happier or more surprised. My cycle was exactly 28 days, cramping was minimal, and menstrual flow was completely ordinary. Even though the results were so great, I still didn’t believe Dr. Husbands that I would get pregnant quickly. After only 3 months though, that is exactly what happened!! My husband and I couldn’t be happier. Hearing the baby’s heartbeat is the highlight of every month. Dr. Husbands thank you for giving me my health back, and for affording us the opportunity to have a family of our own!” …Jaimie, Software Sales Manager in Silicon Valley
