Some Foods May Actually Cause Infertility

Most people love bread and other wheat based baked goods. But many people who are intolerant of these foods don't realize that it could be a cause of infertility. Here is an article about celiac disease and its relation to infertility and miscarriage:

blogs.nytimes.com

From the article:

infertility, or the inability get pregnant, seems to be more common in women with untreated celiac disease, based on a variety of studies in different countries. Other gynecological and obstetrical problems may also be more common, including miscarriages and preterm births. Men with untreated disease may also face fertility issues. Although these problems were not always recognized as being related to celiac disease by doctors and other health professionals, this situation is starting to change.

Infertility In The Bible

How The Bible Can Help You Conceive

The last thing I could ever be mistaken for is a religious scholar. I grew up Catholic (and Catholics typically don't read Bibles, except for excerpts in their religious materials), but now consider myself non-denominational with a little new age thrown in.
But for anyone interested,  here is a guest post about how the bible can help you conceive:

Natural Conception: Fertility After 40

Natural Methods To Get Pregnant Over 40

I've posted articles in the past about using herbal remedies to get pregnant.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
Although I didn't go the herbal route when I was trying to conceive (aside from some herbal teas like Red Raspberry and Dong Quai, I am posting an article from Susun Weed which talks about more natural methods to increase fertility over 40.

 I can't say I've tried everything mentioned, but for anyone interested, the link below talks about everything from herbal remedies to lifestyle changes. Read more:

Fertility After Forty
by Susun S. Weed (www.storknet.com)


From the article:

But more and more women are waiting until their late thirties, early forties, even late forties, to have children. Is this too late? Are these destined to have high-risk pregnancies? Will these children have more birth defects?

The answer to these questions - and others like them - is "no!" for wise women who enlist the help of green allies to increase fertility, ensure conception, prevent birth defects, and promote a healthy pregnancy and an easy delivery.

43 Year Old Didn't Know She Was Pregnant


43 Year Old Gets Pregnant By Surprise


I was watching and older episode of the TLC Network Show called "I didn't know I was pregnant"
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 It's about women who suprisingly give birth without ever realizing they were pregnant before that. One episode that of course caught my attention was a woman who was 43 years old, had been on birth control for 20 years but quit taking it when she was 40. When she was 43, she starts having extreme abdominal pain and finally goes to the hospital. She delivers a baby in the ER without ever knowing she was pregnant.

Although it is quite surprising that someone could go through and entire pregnancy without ever knowing they were pregnant, it's not so surprising that a 43 year old woman could get pregnant. One of the reasons she never suspected that she was pregnant was that she thought she was too old. She had gone off birth control and hadn't conceived up until that time. One of the doctors who was on the show reiterated that even older women in perimenopause need to be on birth control if they don't want to get pregnant. The moral of the story? Women in their 40's may be more fertile than they're led to believe. Yes, it may take longer to get pregnant, but that doesn't mean it can't or won't happen.

Here's where you can learn more about the show:

Celebrity Struggle To Get Pregnant

picture: www.chicagonow.com


I really don't know too much about Giuliana Rancic except I see her on TV every now and then when I channel surf past E! entertainment. One thing that always strikes me is how very thin she is. She's beautiful, but waaaaaayyy too thin. It didn't surprise me at all when I saw the story about how she's having a hard time getting pregnant. Read more here: celebrity-babies.com

I know most women have the opposite problem (i.e. putting on too much weight), but being too thin can lead not only to infertility but also miscarriage. If you were a baby ready to make it's way into the world, wouldn't you prefer a nice soft cushy body for your nine month journey? Instead, this fashonista, who is much more hip than any of us will ever be, looks great, but doesn't have a baby. No wonder we always hear about celebrities going through fertility treatments. Not only are they too thin, but they also have crazy schedules and I'm sure there's quite a bit of stress associated with being in the spotlight.

So Giuliana, if you're reading this...go back to your birthplace (Italy), enjoy the lay back lifestyle, and eat some pasta!! I'll send fertile thoughts your way!!

Variocele and Male Fertility

Varicocele May Affect Testosterone

A "varicocele" is an abnormal swelling of the veins in the scrotum. According to the article below, this may affect male fertility because it can affect testosterone production.

The good news is that this condition may be treated. Read more:

New study sheds light on male infertility (www.ebiologynews.com)

From the article:

Researchers at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center have shed new light on male infertility through two studies.

In the first study, researchers found that a common cause of male infertility, varicoceles or varicose veins in the scrotum, also results in a depletion of testosterone.

In the second research, they noted that a common simple surgery can be used to treat varicoceles, thereby restoring fertility and improving testosterone levels.

Dr. Marc Goldstein, Professor of Urology and Reproductive Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and attending urologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, presented the results of both studies at the 2007 annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in Washington D.C.

He revealed that the presence of varicoceles causes significantly lower testosterone levels.

He also observed that following varicocele removal; testosterone levels are greatly improved - up to 100 percent - in more than two-thirds of the men studied
