This Little Device Can Boost Your Chance of Getting Pregnant!

The other day I received an email from a reader of my newsletter alerting me to a product that can help boost fertility. I am always on the lookout for new products, but somehow I missed this one!

I checked it out and I think this is a fantastic product that everyone should try if you are looking to boost your odds of conceiving. It is rather inexpensive and can especially help those who are dealing with male factor issues such as low sperm count/motility.

While there is no scientific evidence that this will work, I am a firm believer in listening to the evidence of other women who have tried it themselves with great success. Often doctors will not recommend something because there is no "scientific evidence", but if it works for many others, why not give it a chance as long as it seems reasonable.

The product is called SoftCup and it basically is a type of cervical cap that will allow you to concentrate the sperm right at the entrance of the cervix to boost your odds of conceiving.

Here is the link--you can read many testimonials on that page from women who have used this method to conceive, many who were successful the first month trying it!

Here's to your success!

Can Great Sex Help You to Conceive?

For many couples struggling to get pregnant for a long time, the process of "baby-making" can indeed become a chore, especially for the male who is expected to "perform" on demand when the timing is right. Couples may be left wondering if the quality of the sex can have any effect on the woman's ability to actually conceive. Most would think that it doesn't matter, however this may not be the case.

Can Kissing Help You Conceive?

According to an article in Conceive Magazine, "some serious kissing not only can improve your physical health but also your mental state of being, which could translate to possibly having an easier time at conception in the long run."

Most couples know that stress can be harmful to fertility, but what they may not know is that kissing may help to relieve stress among couples. Research has shown that infertile couples have a higher level of anxiety and depression, and that emotional distress is associated with difficulty in conceiving.

The good news is that kissing is an all-natural stress reliever which can help. It's been suggested that relaxing and cuddling, especialy with intimacy can improve fertility. It seems a kiss on the lips can actually trigger a rush of chemicals to be released by the brain which are known as "feel good" chemicals (dopamine, norepinephrine and phenylethylamine).

Kissing seems to have some general health benefits as well. It can relieve headaches, lower blood pressure, make skin glow and helps to put you in a state of contentment.

So, not only can kissing help to improve your physical health, but it can help to improve your state of mind which may in turn help you to get pregnant more easily.

And let's not forget, it's fun!!

Get Support From Other Women Trying to Get Pregnant

 One of the very best things that I did when I was going through my struggle to get pregnant, was to find other women who were going through the same thing.  Most women can find the situation to be very isolating, because it is not usually a subject they feel comfortable talking about to friends and family.  Often couples keep it to themselves that they are having difficulty in getting pregnant, while they listen to the constant questions posed to them about "When are you going to have a baby already?"  I found tremendous comfort in sharing my experience and listening to the experiences of others who were also trying to get pregnant.  How?  By joining an online support group!  There are many such groups around the internet but the one that I strongly recommend is called CafeMom. I LOVE this site because it is made up of women at various stages of being a "mom."  The members are a combination of women who are trying to get pregnant, already pregnant, and already a mom.  What's great is that there are various groups you can join and you will be surprised how much comfort you can gain by reading the posts of other women and also sharing your own thoughts and feelings.  The support is tremendous and it can greatly contribute to relieving some of the stress associated with the struggle to conceive.  And since research shows that stress can reduce fertility, this can mean that joining this site may actually help you to get pregnant!

There is no fee to join, so go check it out right now! Go to CafeMom

Can Your Shampoo Effect Your Chance of Conceiving?

When I recently released the new edition of my e-book, Personal Path to Pregnancy one of the topics that was included focused on the effects of environmental toxins on fertility. This is a very
popular topic right now as more research seems to indicate that there may be a strong link between environmental hazards and the negative impact on fertility.

Here is an article I recently came across that deals with this subject. Definitely worth a read!!

Can't Get Pregnant? You are Not Alone!

I just read an emotional story posted by a woman going through the struggle to conceive. Reading her story, I was reminded of all of the emotions I felt when I was going through my own journey towards motherhood. I know that many women feel very alone and often wonder, "why me?". I think this story will remind you that you are definitely not alone, and many women are going through the same emotional roller coaster.

Weight Loss Surgery Helps Women Overcome Infertility

I have written several times on this blog about research that suggests being overweight can make it much more difficult to get pregnant. In this article, they claim it is 40% harder to get pregnant for obese women. While studies show that losing weight through diet can cause dramatic improvements in fertility, this article discusses another option for losing weight and improving
fertility--gastric bypass surgery. Initial reports suggest that this method can improve the odds of getting pregnant, but there is one serious downside. It is recommended that you wait at least a year or more to try and get pregnant after having this surgery. That may be very difficult for couples who are older and can't afford to wait that long.
