Conception and IVF
DHA and EPA fish oil and conception
Fish oil is pretty important for everyone, but especially for pregnant women and women who want to conceive. And as you may already know, there are two components to fish oil--EPA and DHA.
Red Clover and Conception
Red clover is no different from any other clover except that it has pretty little red blooms. Like all clover, it contains coumarin, which is the active ingredient in most rat poisons.
Alfalfa and conception
Fields of alfalfa have the sweetest smell when being harvested. It's a great crop for field rotation, too, but it turns out it can't help much with conception.
Ginger Heliconia and Conception
Ginger is commonly used to treat an upset stomach. It works pretty well for that and for motion sickness. It doesn't contain any medicinal agent, but it seems that the volatile oils it contains are good for settling your stomach.
Raw foods and conception
Raw foods have their fans, but why? What is so great about not cooking (or minimally cooking) your food that makes it better for you? And what effect does that have for conception?
Coconut oil and conception
Coconut oil is a great source of medium chain triglycerides, which are good for your thyroid, metabolism and weight loss. And it's good for conception, too.
Cholesterol and conception
The cholesterol guidelines have been revised. Do you need treatment for high cholesterol? Is that a good idea when you're trying to conceive?
Coenzyme Q 10 and conception
Coenzyme Q 10, more commonly known as CoQ 10, is an antioxidant. It may help with sperm motility and female egg development, especially if you're past age 35. Perhaps even if you're still in your 20s, too.
Conception on the pill
Can you conceive while taking the pill? The answer is yes, and I personally know several women who did. What went wrong?
