In the world of fertility, lab tests are a common language shared by patients and different practitioners. A valuable assessment tool, they allow the clinician a behind-the-scenes look at various fertility markers – including semen analysis, hormone levels, diagnostic imaging – and provide both an initial diagnosis and a benchmark for measuring the success of a treatment plan.
The most important task of the fertility specialist is to assist patients in maximizing their window of opportunity. The ability to spot red flags in a patient’s lab work-up will allow the practitioner to effectively guide the patient in considering the most appropriate options in a timely fashion. Leslie Oldershaw, a seasoned practitioner with over 20 years of TCM clinical and teaching experience in women's health and fertility, shares how TCM and functional medicine can be combined to provide the greatest advantage for the patient and lead to a successful pregnancy outcome.
