Today I’m going to be talking about unexplained infertility, which I think is a ridiculous diagnosis because nothing is ever unexplained.

Here is what i’m going to cover in this episode:

  • The one mindset shift we need to make right now 
  • Why I think doctors are too quick to diagnose UI without crossing all the "t"s and dotting all the “i”s
  • Why you shouldn’t just jump into IUI or IVF
  • Possible causes of unexplained infertility according to Chinese medicine

My free mini-course,  The Secret Ingredient to Getting Pregnant is available now, and it complements this episode beautifully.  Especially for those of you who are trying to figure out exactly why pregnancy hasn’t happened for you.

To sign up go to adriennewei.com/freecourse

If you’ve already familiar with my podcast, signed up for the free course, and you’re still pulling your hair out trying frustrated and confused...you just wish someone could tell you the what why and how of getting pregnant...you’re willing to invest in yourself and your health, then join the waitlist for my signature program the Fertile Period Lab.

Welcome to episode 4!

So I'm back from D.C. and had an amazing time!  Many of you wonder if and how I stay on track with my diet and lifestyle while on vacation.  Vacations for some people is a time to relax, let loose and "cheat" on their diets.  My husband certainly does this.  As he is eating a chocolate cake he'll say "it's vacation."

I've often wondered why people think that vacation is a green light to be unhealthy.  

I think it's the principle of "everything in moderation is ok."  I used to be a fan of this, but now I'm finding that I'm wrong, and moderation may be preventing us from achieving our goals.

To find out why, let's jump in!

One of the biggest fears you all have is working really hard to get pregnant and then end up miscarrying...

...well how about miscarrying 5 times.

Five losses and top of that you’ve been told IVF is your only option.

How do you recover from that...how do you pick up the pieces after each loss and keep going... to have enough faith in your body that it’s going to be able to get pregnant and stay pregnant.

Today, I bring the incredible story of Laurie.

She is someone who suffered 5 miscarriages before finally getting pregnant and is now 15 weeks along.

You’re going to hear about her ups and downs on her journey, the actions she took both holistic and medical, and what finally tipped the scale and made the biggest difference for her

I will give you a huge hint, it’s not a miracle pill or a magical diet.  

I can’t wait for you to listen to Laurie’s story because I know it’s going to inspire so many of you, and give you the hope that yes you can get pregnant against all odds.

Today I have a guest for my episode, Devon Baeza, Life coach and fertility finance coach.

That’s pretty interesting right?  She’s not just a life coach she is a fertility finance coach.

I totally understand that during the TTC process, your biggest fear is that no matter what you do, you won’t be able to get pregnant. And it’s exactly this fear that drives your decision making.  

For example, because of this fear, some of you choose to do nothing.  But some of you do too much because you’re are convinced that what is holding you back from getting pregnant are things like diet, timing of intercourse, lifestyle...and you’re sure there is that ONE thing you’re missing.  

But you rarely think about how your mindset about how money ties into all of this, and that your beliefs about money could be holding you back from getting pregnant. And I’m not just talking about coming up with cold hard cash for an IUI and IVF.  

In this episode, Devon talks to us about the five biggest mistakes you’re making when it comes to money that could be holding you back from getting pregnant.

Devon also has a super cool freebie for all of you, it’s 15 ways to come up with money for fertility procedures that you didn’t know about.

Today, I’m bringing you a recording from our Fertility Happy Hour Facebook live show.

Jocey, my incredible co host and I talk about supplements and what I call hypersupplementitis.  It’s not a real condition because I made it up, but it makes me upset that so many women are blindly trusting supplement companies because of good marketing.  

So in this episode, we have a message for the supplements industry and why you need to change your mindset around supplements.

I love my job dearly and I've helped hundreds of women conceive.  But inevitably, there are times of losses too. 

Today, I'm going to be talking about one of the scariest topics when it comes to TTC.  It's one of the biggest fears a woman will have and that is miscarriage.  To try so hard to achieve success, only to lose it is an incredibly painful process to deal with.  Physically and emotionally.

I'm going to talk about:

1.  What causes a miscarriage (there are actually three types of miscarriages)

2.  How to prevent a miscarriage

3.  When to start trying again

There's no easy way to recover from a miscarriage, but with each day it gets easier.  I hope the information in this episode will help you along the way, and provide comfort for you in knowing that you were a mother no matter how short the duration.

Today’s episode is the audio portion of a Facebook live that I did last Friday with Jocey.  So many of you tell me that you’re not able to make the Facebook live shows because it’s during the work day.

But I don’t want you to miss out on valuable information.

Jocey and I talk about endometriosis because it’s been coming up quite a bit in our group.  And there’s a mix bag of feelings, from relief because you now have an answer, to "oh shit, I’m never going to get pregnant." 

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What endometriosis is
  • The causes of endometriosis
  • And is laparascopy the best treatment option

I've also created a FREE min-course for you, The Secret Ingredient You Need to Get Pregnant.  To get instant access, please go to:

Happy 2019!  I am so glad that 2018 is behind us.  I'm excited about what this year will bring for all of us.

But first, let's get real for a minute and think about what's known as "New Years Resolutions."  Raise your hand if you've set resolutions before and then you forget about them as the year moves on.

Don't feel bad though, resolutions are meant to set you up for failure.  

In this episode, I talk about why you shouldn't bother setting up resolutions and what you should do instead to get yourself one step closer to getting pregnant.
