Genetically modified foods and conception
Genetically modified foods are not foods at all, and they are not good if you're trying to conceive--they are manipulations of foods that then manipulate our bodies once we eat them. And the scary thing is that they keep on manipulating us for a long time, even if we stop eating them.
Excess estrogen effect on conception
Excess estrogen in our foods is causing havoc with fertility. Estrogen is one of the female hormones, but too much of it doesn't make you "more" of a woman--it is not a good thing.
Fluoride and conception
Fluoride is actually a toxin that does your body no favors, even though we have been taught that it's important for your teeth. Unfortunately, it accumulates in tissue and the long bones and causes problems.
Social stigma of conception
There is a lot of social pressure depending on your social circle to either get pregnant or avoid it. This can be a tough time if you're wanting to start a family, but all your friends are having a good time childless. How can you handle this?
Essential oils and fertility
Fragrances can contain a lot of chemicals that are actually bad for fertility, but some essential oils can actually help you conceive.
One ovary and conception
I have known a lot of women who have one ovary due to surgery for ovarian cysts. Of course, they worried about being able to get pregnant later on. How essential are two ovaries to having a family?
Age and conception
We often think that young women can easily get pregnant, which makes women in their late 30s jealous. But sometimes young women have problems, too. What problems can a young woman face in conceiving?
For some women, getting pregnant is not so simple. One procedure that doctors use to see if there are problems is HSG, or hysterosalpingogram. If you're told you need one, what does it involve?
DHA versus EPA fish oil
There are two primary forms of fish oil: DHA and EPA. They are both valuable, but what is the difference and do you need more of one or the other?
Travel and conception
Travel is often a concern for women who are trying to get pregnant or newly pregnant. Don't let that stress you out.
