Each reproductive journey is unique and deeply personal. From enjoying healthy intimacy to starting or growing a family, Cache Valley Women’s Center at the Lodge in Logan, Utah is here to listen and support you along the way. 

 

We believe in our patients having their voices heard and taking an active role in boosting and bettering their reproductive health. Whether you’re in the planning stages, actively trying to conceive, or undergoing infertility treatments, here are a few strategies for supporting and helping you reach your goal of optimal health, fertility, and healthy pregnancy

 

Consume A Healthy Diet 

 

Focus on a consistent diet that includes antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Take a prenatal vitamin daily, drink plenty of water, and include plenty of fruits and vegetables and protein sources in your meals. 

 

Aim For Adequate, Healthy Sleep

 

Lack of sleep can negatively impact the body in a variety of ways—including suppressing ovulation, affecting thyroid and adrenal gland function, and contributing to hormonal imbalances. On the flip side, quality sleep can help the body produce healthy amounts of fertility hormones like estrogen, progesterone, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).

 

Maintain a regular sleep routine and do you best to consistently get at least seven hours of sleep each night. Give yourself a break from your phone and other electronics within an hour before bedtime, avoid large snacks before bed, and try going outdoors or getting light exercise when you wake to help give you a boost as you start your day. 

 

If You’re Not Trying To Conceive, Find The Right Contraception

 

Planning the timing for your pregnancy is a great way to promote the health and happiness of yourself, your baby, and your family. Explore the birth control options available, like the pill, implants, or an IUD, and talk to your provider about which options could be best for you. 

 

Find Healthy Ways To Manage Stress

 

Stress is a natural response to the situations we face in life. However, prolonged periods of intense or chronic stress can negatively impact the body in various ways—including reproductive health and infertility.

 

The reason for this is that feelings of anxiousness or stress cause our bodies to produce high levels of cortisol, which can lead to weight gain, difficulty sleeping, decreased sperm quality, and suppressed ovulation. 

 

Practicing routine meditation and exercise and getting adequate sleep can all help keep stress at a healthy and manageable level. If you don’t experience relief with these coping techniques, consult with your doctor for additional help and resources. 

 

Protect Yourself Against Sexually Transmitted Infections

 

Sexually transmitted infections impact about 19 million people each year in the U.S. The good news is, there are effective steps you can take to reduce your risk. Learn about how to protect both yourself and your partner, then put these practices into consistent action. 

 

If you do experience symptoms, consult with your healthcare provider right away. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical for preventing lasting effects on your health, including infertility. 

 

Keep Up With Your Routine OB/GYN Visits

 

Be sure to visit your health care provider at least on an annual basis for a well check, and get preventative screenings like pap smears within the recommended timelines. If you do notice any symptoms or conditions, contact your doctor in a timely manner. 

 

Choose Healthy Relationships

 

Maintain healthy communication and mutual respect with your sexual partner. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t be afraid to reach out for resources.

FOR OUR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIESInformation Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Cache Valley Women’s Center remains committed to providing high-quality and compassionate care while ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. As our knowledge of COVID-19 grows, we look at everything we can do to keep our communities healthy. This requires frequent updating and revising of our policies.

Patients are allowed to bring ONE person to ALL visits.

AS A REMINDER:

  • This person needs to be over the age of 18 or a newborn baby in a carrier.
  • Please make arrangements before your appointment (this includes walk in visits for any blood work being done) for your children who are under 18.

Although masks are no longer required, they are still encouraged during your visit—especially for those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that anyone experiencing flu like symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell, or muscle aches and pains to please call and reschedule your appointment. For those who have tested positive for Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment 14 days out from your first day of symptoms. If you still have symptoms at that time, you will be asked to wear a mask to your appointment, regardless of vaccination status.

We are continuing to follow social distancing guidelines. If our waiting room exceeds the amount we feel comfortable with at any time, you may be asked to wait in your car and we will text or call you when we have a room ready for you. Thank you for being so patient and understanding with our many changes in policies. Our main concern is always the safety of our patients and staff and we will do our best to keep everyone healthy, happy, and comfortable while in our office.

We will continue to exercise caution and encourage best practices for the safety of our patients and staff. There will be hand sanitizer readily available in all areas and frequent and proper hand washing. We will also continue to clean and sanitize our waiting room, exam rooms, checkout area, and other patient care areas. Essential PPE and masks will still be available for our patients upon request.

Please do not hesitate to call our office at (435) 753-9999 with any additional questions or concerns. We truly appreciate you and your patience with us during this time.

Sincerely,

The providers and staff at Cache Valley Women’s Center at the Lodge
