"We've been trying to get pregnant for almost a year, and nothing has happened. We desperately want a baby. Can you help us?"
"I am so sick of taking the pill, and I hate the side effects, especially the moodiness. I don't want to keep pumping my body with chemicals, but I need some form of contraceptive. Is this the kind of thing you deal with?"
"I have poly cystic ovaries and am worried about not being able to get pregnant when I want to in the future. I want to find out if my fertility is ok now. Can you help me work out what is going on with my fertility?"
"I am breastfeeding my eight week old baby and am ready to resume having intercourse with my partner but am worried about falling pregnant again. I don't want to be taking the pill or have an IUD put in. Is there something more natural that I can do?"
