Male Fertility Issues
There are three contributors to conception challenges
If getting pregnant is taking longer than you hoped or expected, we can help you, naturally. Sometimes, women wanting to get pregnant think they have to take drastic measures to address an infertility issue. We prefer that you start with looking at natural options first, where we can help your body get to a better fertility state.
With more and more people waiting until their thirties to get pregnant, we know time is of the essence and it’s our goal to help you conceive as quickly as possible.

Infertility Factors in Men
There are many factors that can cause issues with male fertility. Dr. Mitch Roodvoets works with male clients to help them understand how they might be contributing to the conception challenge.
Here’s a short list of influencers that affect fertility:
Blockages due to trauma and infection
Smoking and illicit drug use
Alcohol in high amounts
Exogenous testosterone, which decreases sperm production
Once we determine which factors are in play, what’s next? We then do labs, a semen analysis, and possibly, refer you to a urologist for additional evaluation, if necessary.
Dr. Roodvoets creates an individualized holistic and hormone balancing treatment plan that often involves a combination of lifestyle recommendations, detoxification, herbs, supplements, and specially formulated medications.
