Fertility Fundamentals Incorporated – Affordable Natural Fertility Treatments
Fertility Fundamentals Inc is Adelaide’s unique new natural fertility clinic that uses the science of Billings Ovulation Method® and Natural Procreative Technology (NPT) to assist women and couples by providing assessment and management of all fertility issues, including assistance in both achievement and avoidance of pregnancy, using natural cycle education and management with fertility awareness techniques. We are an affordable alternative to IVF.
We hope to become Adelaide and South Australia’s premier provider of natural fertility and natural infertility treatments, empowering couples with knowledge, providing comprehensive fertility assessment and investigating their individual causes of sub fertility, and managing those causes of sub fertility to achieve pregnancy in a more natural way without using Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) such as IVF. Our service does not use or refer women for IVF management of infertility.
We also offer comprehensive diagnosis and management of male factor infertility. For our help to be effective we recommend seeing both partners for the initial consultation as well as medical follow up consultations if possible.
The clinic combines the skills of 2 medical practitioners with general practice experience, specialist training in natural fertility management using Naprotechnology methods and gynaecological specialist training, with those of a senior accredited Billings Ovulation Method® teacher with over 25 years experience. The Billings Ovulation Method® and NPT are successful, evidence based, non-invasive and far less expensive alternatives to IVF for women trying to conceive. The Billings Ovulation Method® teaches a woman to understand her natural signs of fertility and infertility and to track any signs of reproductive ill health. Natural Procreative Technology (NPT) provides medical and surgical diagnosis and management for women with reproductive health issues. In some cases women may be unaware they have a gynaecological conditions, such as a progesterone deficiency, endometriosis or ovarian cysts, which could be preventing them from becoming pregnant.
Using the knowledge gained from the woman’s fertility awareness charting we then incorporate correctly timed pathology and radiology investigations, including full cycle evaluation with hormonal levels and ultrasound follicle tracking, cervical mucus assessment and enhancement if required, to provide an accurate diagnosis as to the cause of a couple’s infertility. We offer medical management for chronic conditions associated with infertility such as PCOS, and can use Clomid for follicular phase deficiency or defects and progesterone or hCG for luteal phase defects. We offer surgical management to diagnose and treat the causes of infertility Such as laparoscopic and hysteroscopic evaluation and laparoscopic resection of “silent” endometriosis, which ahs bee shown to increase fertility rates.
We are able to provide the time required to teach the woman to understand her fertility and guide her in using this information to make accurate diagnoses. We can provide a full pre-conception evaluation and we offer accredited Obstetric Shared Care for any South Australian obstetric hospital as well as a comprehensive medical tracking of the progress of the pregnancy.
