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?
Waiting for something robs you of time you have today....how can you stay positive while you dream, wish and anguish over having a baby?
Knocked up is a movie about the lifelong result of a one-night stand. If it had had a little less potty humor and a more clever script, it could have been a sweet movie. I thought it fell short, but surprisingly, it made me have some deeper questions.

ink that L-arginine might be the most disputed conception aid. Some sources state it improves quantity of eggs but decreases quality.
Lack of cervical mucus and conception
Hostile cervical mucus is discussed a lot, but what about the other problem--a lack of cervical mucus. That may cause problems for conception, too, but there are ways around it.
Leptin and conception
Leptin receptors are mostly found in fat tissue, but researchers have found a receptor for leptin in endometrial tissue. It has also been discovered that leptin levels rise during the follicular phase in pre-menopausal women and fall during your period.

Letrozole is an alternative to clomiphene for ovulation induction. Is it better?

Life timing and conception
How do you know if the time is right to have a baby?
