Weight and conception
Few of us are the perfect weight when we are ready to try to have children. Being too thin is a problem and so is being too heavy, but which is worse? How close to perfect do you need to be?
Epsom salts and conception
Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate salts. Added to a foot soak or bath, your skin will actually absorb magnesium. If you're deficient, this can be a way to get magnesium, and your skin won't absorb more than you need. Anyone for a bath?

Doctor, are you listening?
I was sent the book, "Doctor, are you listening? A couple's struggle to find the right infertility doctor," to review by the author, Dr. Masood Khatamee. His co-author, Linda Perelman Pohl, was an infertility patient herself decades ago, and she details her experiences.

Some women have only one fallopian tube. Sometimes a tube has to be removed due to infection, endometriosis, or tubal pregnancy, and some women are born with only one. If this is your situation, don't worry too much--you can still get pregnant.
Cancer Treatment's Effect on conception
Cancer is a word you never want a doctor to say to you. When you're older, it's traumatic enough, but when you're young and still thinking about your whole life and future family, it is devastating.
High cholesterol and conception
Cholesterol is something routinely checked annually by your doctor. If your blood test comes back with a high cholesterol, what does that mean? What if you're trying to get pregnant?
