Conception tips E book
For those of you who would like an E-book version of my columns from Bellaonline, you got your wish! I have compiled my columns into a book of Conception Tips, and it's organized to make it more useful. I also included a special section on surviving IVF, should you go that route.
Fertility is a gift wasted on the young
It is sad but true that your most fertile days are probably when you want to be least fertile. You can push that envelope, however, by how you live.
Ovulation and how to know it happened
I get asked a lot how a woman can tell if she ovulated. It's not a stupid question, so let's discuss how you would know if you are or are not ovulating.
Pesticides and conception
Pesticides are bad for humans in so many ways, one of which is fertility. This is true for both men and women.
Ayurveda and conception
Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy of health developed in India. It considers the mind and body to be one, and sickness happens when the mind and body are not balanced. Let's talk about how this affects conception.
Coconut oil and conception
Coconut oil is not just for sun-bathing! It's a great source of medium chain triglycerides, which are great for your thyroid, metabolism and weight loss. And it's good for conception, too.
Your job and fertility
Can your job negatively affect your fertility? If it's very stressful, definitely. If you sit in front of a computer screen for hours, perhaps. If you eat badly at work, perhaps.
Pre-pregnancy genetic testing
Pre-pregnancy genetic testing is offered to couples who are concerned about inherited disorders.
Echinacea and fertility
If you have a cold, you may reach for echinacea. It has been used to boost the immune system to fight colds for a long time, but it may not be your friend if you're trying to conceive.
How to answer difficult questions
People love to ask couples if they're trying to conceive, especially if they've been married for at least a year. You would think that everyone would know how awkward that can be by now, but they don't. Here are some suggestions for what to say.
