Our expert says:
The geophagia is more related to iron deficiency and uterine deficiency and will not directly cause any tubal pathology or infertility. It would be best to treat the two matters as separate issues and I would recommend you treat your fertility independently. However in extreme cases of geophagia and where there is severe iron or mineral deficiency, this may impact on ovulatory status as well as implantation status and maybe a cause of repeated miscarriages. Thus i would advise you to have investigations done and perhaps simple supplementation maybe of value, con currently with your fertility treatment.
