Restorative reproductive medicine (RRM) is an innovation in women’s health science that monitors and maintains a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health. RRM provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system. Physicians trained in RRM are not only versed in fertility awareness methods (FAMs), but they have also been trained to treat women based on an understanding of their fertility cycles. This approach to healthcare is called “restorative reproductive medicine” because it aims at finding and treating the root causes of reproductive and menstrual disorders, as well as infertility. RRM uses medicine to restore women’s healthy cycles, and to protect and enhance their natural fertility.
