Tubal ligation Reversal and conception
Getting pregnant after surgical sterilization
IUI versus IVF and conception
If you have been trying to get pregnant for a year (if you're under 35) or six months (if you're over 35), and you have not been successful, it's time to move on to the specialist. Once there, what are your choices? Should you try IUI or go straight to IVF?
Homeopathy and conception
Homeopathy has been gaining a resurgence lately as a natural cure. It often gets lumped into the category of "alternative therapies," but I think that is too broad. I am sure you have heard of it, but what is it?
Cervical cancer and conception
A diagnosis of cervical cancer is scary, especially if you want children. After surgery, things are different, but children can still be in your future.
White foods and conception
Why is "white food" so bad? It tastes good and it's fortified, right? Anything that has to be fortified should make you question it. If it naturally had vitamins, nobody would have to add them back.
Astaxanthin and conception
Antioxidants are extremely important in reducing oxidative damage that occurs in our bodies and damages cells, especially reproductive cells. Vitamin E is a great antioxidant, but an even more powerful one is astaxanthin.
Blighted Ovum and Conception
It's not bad enough that you get stressed about getting pregnant, but then once you are pregnant, there is the stress that something could go wrong. If you're told you have a "blighted ovum," something did go wrong.
Choosing a Healthcare Practitioner and conception
Do you like your gynecologist? That's good as long as it's just a routine annual Pap smear you see him or her for, but conception is a different matter. Let's discuss why.
Vitex - Chaste Berry and Conception
Vitex is another name for Chaste Berry. Of course, if you're trying to get pregnant, I doubt you are "chaste"! That name comes from its former use in monks to diminish libido. I don't know if it worked. I think a better, more descriptive name would be "LH booster."
Conception Calendar Basics
It really is amazing that, despite the fact that women menstruate pretty much every 28-35 days, we often know little about our fertile days. This is how many unintended pregnancies occur! And for those struggling with conceiving, this may also be why that is not working.
