Hi Mamas. My good friend and I are both looking for holistically-minded gyno care. I'm looking to conceive soon and she has really irregular cycles as a result of some birth control she took a while back. The gynecologists she's seen have all tried to recommend more birth control without answering any of her questions about what her body could possibly be telling her. She's now charting, but still needs some help deciphering her body's rhythm. We're looking to be treated as whole people by someone who won't automatically defer to drugs - who knows about and supports charting.
Thanks in advance.

I am not sure an OB is who you would want per se. I think there is some holistic fertility place in Brookline that offers various treatments, and I think they would consult in much more detail what has happened in your friend's cycles.
Also someone trained in Mayan abdominal massage would be someone to work with, as well as maybe the NE School of Acupuncture. The Chinese medicine approach to healthy cycles is far more detailed than the Western view.
