Can Ureaplasma cause infertility? The Test Fertility Dr.’s doesn’t want you to know about

If you have unexplained infertility, you know that the list of possible tests is never ending. Well at least it’s not if YOU want to find a solution to YOUR infertility. Western medicine is famous for discounting symptoms and dismissing patients they cannot easily treat. Especially, if you have had chronic UTI symptoms you need to keep reading.

So, WHAT is it?
Ureaplasma is a bacterium that can be passed through sexual contact although it’s not considered a STI or STD because it has only a small ability to cause disease. It can live in the lungs, although most often in the reproductive tract or urinary tract.

What are the Symptoms?
Symptoms can range from none (other than unexplained infertility) to chronic and persistent UTI symptoms including pain, burning, frequency to urinate and foul smelling watery vaginal discharge. Some experience itching as well. Urinary symptoms can occur in both men and women.
Sometime associated with repeat bacterial vaginosis as well as repeat unexplained miscarriage.
If you have ureaplasma you may end up at a urologist who won’t be able to get to the bottom of your symptoms either since the bacteria lives in the vagina.

A $10 antibiotic is the cure...
While samples can be taken and cultured in a lab this is costly and usually not done unless a definitive diagnosis is needed. Sometimes you can have ureaplasma and the culture doesn’t grow. Sometimes only one partner is given antibiotics leading to even more confusion as this makes the symptoms go away temporarily (but quickly return) since both partners haven’t been treated. To be effective the infection is treated with antibiotics (Zithromax or doxycycline) in both partners (this is key in relieving the symptoms) with either

If you want to hear a real-life story of how this impacted one woman…

Erin Banks has an amazing story to tell about her battle to diagnosis over a 2-year odyssey where she went through 9 medicated cycles, 5 unsuccessful IUI’s (most of them should have NEVER been done) and 3 early pregnancy losses. All this could have been avoided if one of the 6 doctors she visited had done some further investigation surrounding her symptoms.

3 BIGGEST infertility lies (and why you shouldn't believe them)

3 BIGGEST infertility lies (and why you shouldn't believe them)

#1 Lie 
If your hormone numbers/bloodwork are bad you’ll never get pregnant. 

It's true your NEVER going to produce more eggs. However you only need one good egg and there are a ton of things that you can do to improve egg quality and help your body regulate your hormones. 
 Your diet playing a huge role in how your body is able to process and regulate your hormones. Limiting refined sugar, caffeine (a mineral robber) and alcohol to name a few.  Controlling your stress can in fact help your blood work and hormone levels because of the cortisol loop. Body balancing through alternative methods such as Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage can improve your bodies ability to regulate hormones.

#2 Lie
 If you can’t get pregnant on your own IVF/are you Is guaranteed to give you a baby.

Many people experience failed IVF and IUI repeatedly because the root of the dis-ease in the body  is not discovered. The laws of nature hold true in all things and if the soil isn't correct you can't grow plants or in this case babies. Items that are frequently overlooked include genetic factors  that have not been tested and food allergies that are causing an inflammation response in the body. 
Maybe it is that the male partner needs tested (seemingly often this is the last thing to ever be tested for as it was in our case) Infertility in the medical community seems to woman’s problem.  It wasn’t until after I had had three surgeries that the idea of testing my husband was ever brought up.

Lie #3
If your infertility doctor can’t help you, you can’t be helped. 

Many people don’t know that reproductive endocrinologist and fertility clinics are judged on something called an ART (Applied Reproductive Technology) success rate. The score is based on the success rate of their patient load (live births versus the number of transfers) For that reason many doctors dismiss patients that they consider to be a difficult case or a bad risk for them because it will drive their ART score down. If one doctor says that they cannot help you please get a second opinion or look at alternative therapies to help heal your body.
