This Herb May Help Your Fertility

One fertility boosting herb that I
have just recently read about is called MACA.

Maca is a Peruvian root-like vegetable that dries into a
butterscotch-tasting powder. Its adaptogenic
actions help normalize hormones.
Maca is used to increase fertility and libido
in both men and women by its effects of decreasing
estrogen, increasing progesterone and unbinding
testosterone, according to the research.

You can read some more about Maca here:

Fertility Treatment of No Benefit?

Some new research suggests that some couples may be wasting their time if they use Clomid or artificial insemination when trying to get pregnant.  It's not that these two fertility treatments don't work, because they absolutely do.  The research applies to couples who have "unexplained fertility".  When doctors can't find a reason why a woman can't get pregnant, sometimes they will prescribe Clomid even if there is no problem with ovulation.  In cases of "unexplained infertility" taking the Clomid doesn't help, according to this new research.

"But trials of 580 women in Scotland found the treatments were no
better than trying to get pregnant naturally, the British Medical Journal

Extreme Dieting Can Damage Your Fertility

Most of the research on diet and fertility focuses on how being overweight can have a negative impact on your fertility.  What many people may not be aware of is the damaging effects of being underweight as the result of extreme dieting.  It can make it impossible to get pregnant. Read more...

A Miracle Story of Getting Pregnant?

I don't know whether I can believe this story or not..  The idea of a 57 year old woman getting pregnant with donor eggs is not that unheard of these days, as those stories always get a lot of media attention.  What I find hard to believe is a woman being 30 weeks pregnant and not knowing it.  In a healthy pregnancy, you would be feeling significant movement at this point, so how could she not have noticed that?  You would have to be pretty oblivious not to notice...

Fertility Jewelry - Can It Offer Strength And Hope?

A friend of mine who is struggling with fertility problems recently received a gift that she shared with me. It was a beautiful bracelet made of rose quartz and moonstone beads. She told me that it was a fertility bracelet and she felt tremendous hope and comfort in wearing it while she continued her efforts to try and get pregnant.

I found out the bracelet was ordered from a website and I checked it out to see what it was all about. Here is a brief description of this bracelet from the artist who made it:

"Moonstone is said to have powers that aid in nurturing receptivity and balancing of the emotions. I included them in my fertility bracelet to help prepare the mama-to-be to welcome new life into her body, and into her life.

Rose quartz are the beads of love and fertility. They are said to help promote pregnancy and to protect the mother and unborn fetus from miscarriage.

Turtles are a potent symbol of both protection and fertility."

I wish I had known about this when I was going through my struggle to conceive. I think I would have really liked wearing a piece of jewelry that was meant to enhance fertility. It may not have magical powers, but it can be a symbol of hope and I think many women would benefit from this. If you want to go check it out, here is the link for the Fertility Jewelry

Heavy Cell Phone Use May Be Tied To Infertility

Here's an article I think is worth reading.  While the research doesn't prove that cell phone use can cause reduced sperm count, there may be a causal effect.  More research is definitely needed, but I think it may be best to cut back on the cell phone use for males trying to get their partner pregnant.  Read more...
