037: Fertility Myths Debunked & Non-Traditional Treatment Options for Infertility with Marc Skla

Growing up you learn all the ways to prevent getting pregnant, but no one really discusses what happens when you want to get pregnant and can’t.

On this episode, I talk with fertility expert Dr. Marc Sklar, a Harvard trained medical professional. He gives real advice on how to get pregnant and debunks some of the myths regarding fertility. Plus we cover many non-traditional options for enhancing male and female fertility if you're not yet ready (or jaded by) traditional Western medicine.
