HOW LONG BEFORE OVULATION DO EGGS MATURE?

I have heard that you should start preparing your body for conception up to three months in advance.  I firmly believe that getting pregnant and preventing miscarriage has everything to do with an overall healthy lifestyle.  When your body is getting everything it needs in terms of nutrition, sleep, relaxation etc., it tends to make the right amount of hormones and regulate itself.  This will lead to higher quality eggs when they finally become mature and ovulate.  According to this...

53 YEAR OLD PREGNANT WHILE ON THE PILL, AMAZING!

Elephant Fertility Bracelet, Rose Quartz, Moonstone, Amythest I'm always amazed at the number of women who not only get pregnant over 40 naturally, but also women who get pregnant over 50 naturally.  What makes this case remarkable is   the woman in the story got pregnant by surprise at the age of 53, and she was on the pill at the time.  She also admits to a "once in a blue moon" love life!  What are the odds of that?  Her pregnancy had a fairytale ending too.  She carried to te...

IS GETTING PREGNANT AT 44 JUST LUCK? NOT REALLY!

Pregnancy Over 40, Not just luck Was getting pregnant over 40 just the luck of the Irish? Well, not for me...I'm not in the least bit Irish.  But in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd talk a little bit about luck. I sometimes hear: "Boy you were lucky to have a baby at your age". Actually I agree to a point. If you think about all the things that have to come together to get pregnant and carry a baby to term, there's a bit of luck no matter what your age. Was it a sur...

IS SOY GOOD OR BAD FOR FERTILITY, GETTING PREGNANT?

The Soy Controversy Whether or not soy enhances female fertility seems to be an area of controversy.  Some sources say soy can actually be detrimental to fertility because the phytoestrogens could act as a contraceptive.  However, one study, although done on monkeys (who have menstrual cycles similar to humans), concluded that even though it may lengthen menstrual cycles (which, for me, was a good thing), it did not harm fertility.[1]Critics of soy mention other reasons it may harm fertility an...

WOMAN HAS BABIES OVER 40, 43, 45! STILL FERTILE!

SURPRISE! WOMEN OVER 40 GOT PREGNANT OUT OF NOWHERE

It's not a big surprise to me that many women get pregnant by surprise over the age of 40.  As a matter of fact, the rate of unintended pregnancies in women over 40 is second only to teenagers.  Many of these women aren't always happy with the news and some of these pregnancies are terminated.  But if you are trying to conceive, this may provide some encouragement.  Women over 40 can actually be very fertile given the right circumstances.  The media focuses so much on how fertility declin...

DOES IVF CAUSE GENE MUTATIONS?

As time goes on, and more couples go through assisted reproduction, the scientific community is discovering that the fertility procedures themselves may put children at risk of genetic mutations. I know there are couples who have no choice but to go through assisted reproduction, however, it's important to go into any procedure knowing all possible outcomes. I was never informed of any risk of birth defects or pregnancy complications as a result of the actual fertility treatments (the on...

ALKALINE OR ACIDIC FOODS FOR FERTILITY?

SHOULD YOU BE EATING ALKALINE OR ACIDIC FOODS TO GET PREGNANT? Many of my readers have asked about the connection between fertility, cervical mucus and the type of foods that you should eat.  Fertility is enhanced by eating more alkaline type foods. Many women and couples have also heard that a more acidic environment will help them conceive a girl. There does not seem to be scientific proof of this, but proponents of this theory believe that sperm that determine a female gender are hea...
