Your job and conception
We spend a lot of time at work, and it may impact our health more than we realize, including our potential to conceive. Let's talk about some factors that may be important and what you can do about them.
Reproductive endocrinologists and conception
Some couples need the help of a reproductive endocrinologist. Those aren't the type of specialist with whom any of us have any experience, and some couples want to keep their search for one private, so how do you find out who is good or not?
Chlorella and conception
Chlorella and spirulina are superfoods that detoxify your body, plus, if you're like me and don't eat many greens, they can fill that void.
Echinacea and conception
Echinacea has long been popular for colds and flu because it may help boost the immune system. It appears to be antiviral and stimulate T-cell production, very useful for a cold. However, it may also inhibit hyaluronidase, and this could factor in to decreasing your odds for conception.
Birth control and conception
At some point in their fertile lives, many women take birth control pills. They're very effective and reversible. But there are a lot of myths about "the pill."
Eating organic food and conception
I admit that I didn't always care about how well I ate. I was naturally thin and athletic, so I didn't care. I ate what I wanted. Over time, my mindset about food has changed. I started to read labels, and I learned more about modern farming, and I became more concerned about the food I eat.
Pre-conception genetic testing
Pre-conception genetic testing is offered to couples who are concerned about inherited disorders.
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.
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.
