Welcome to Unexplained Infertility Info

Dr. Shawna Darou
I have built this website as a resource site, to help you understand the possible causes of your unexplained infertility. As a Naturopathic Doctor, my goal is to find and treat the underlying cause of illness or health issues. I know that if you have found this site, you have many unanswered questions, and are currently unsure of what the best action is to restore your fertility. I hope that you find some answers and direction here, and I will do my best to continue to gather resources for you.

In the free download above "Your Roadmap to Unexplained Infertility", I have condensed and simplified the initial questions a Naturopathic doctor would ask, to help to direct your treatment. I'm sure you will find this a helpful start. And, don't forget to read the articles section above, as we regularly post on the latest fertility research, and I have many great guests posting regularly to provide you with more great resources.

I wish you all the best,

Dr. Shawna Darou, ND
