What is Alternative & Complementary Medicine?

If you’ve already taken steps to address infertility, then you might be wondering what you can do to boost your health after any procedure. Complementary medicine refers to alternative fertility treatments that are complementary to (add to) conventional treatments. Holistic, or integrative medicine, refers to combining complementary with conventional approaches.
