"I was told at the age of 26 I was infertile, with no explanation as to why or how to do anything about it. It was a lifelong dream of mine to have my own children. I was broken."

How did your hormone health journey start?
My own hormone journey started long before I heard of BePure, I had struggled for a long time with my GP and later fertility experts on both my painful monthly cycle and desire to have children. After being told I was infertile for unexplainable reasons I decided to start searching for other options that could help me or provide more answers and that’s when I discovered Ben Warren and the BePure team.

What were you first told about your fertility and how did that make you feel?
I was told at the age of 26 I was infertile, with no explanation as to why or how to do anything about it. It was a lifelong dream of mine to have my own children. I was broken. I will never forget that day sitting in my doctor's office and being told that I cried all the way home. It truly was one of the worst days of my life.
"It truly was one of the worst days of my life."
What solutions were suggested at that time?
What brought you to BePure?
My inner voice told me, what I had been told wasn’t true. I knew a little about BePure through friends and decided to give it a shot as I had nothing to lose.
What have you discovered about your hormones with BePure?
I discovered that after years of body abuse on my part, I had become oestrogen dominant. This oestrogen dominance is associated with fertility and could have been blocking my chances at pregnancy.
I also found out about inflammatory foods and how they affect my body. After cutting out wheat and dairy I have had painless periods for the first time in my life.

Where are you on your health journey now and what’s the outlook?
Now I feel like not only have I learnt so much about my body and some possible reasons for why it has been this way for so long, but I also feel hopeful that I am able to aid my body in repairing itself. This has also helped me so much mentally. I’m a more positive happy and stress free person thanks to BePure.
