MYF 40 | Breast Implant Illness and Fertility + Dr. Haylee's Personal Story
Welcome to Episode 40!
Dr. Haylee talks about her recent healing journey with breast implant illness (BII). Millions of women with supposedly benign breast implants are suffering from mystery symptoms, including unexplained infertility or miscarriage. The vast majority of doctors will never suspect that breast implants could be the cause of their suffering. It takes women years, even decades, to find out that the cause was sitting right inside of them all along. This is what happened to Dr. Haylee and that’s why it’s important to her to tell her story to help spread the word about this important issue. She offers a unique perspective as a naturopathic doctor who’s also dealing symptoms of breast implant illness.
In this episode, you’re going to learn:
Common symptoms related to breast implant illness
Why breast implants can cause trouble conceiving and miscarriage
What are the appropriate steps to take if you think you have BII
And natural therapies that will help you heal while you are exploring your options
BII is not curable unless you have an explant surgery – and Dr. Haylee’s is scheduled on August 20th 2019 (yay!) You’ll learn all about how she came to this decision in this episode. We’ll be updating you on the progress of her recovery in upcoming episodes.
