If You're Trying To Get Pregnant, Detox With Simple Foods and Water

I'ver read about fertility diets, but not necessarily about "fertility detox" - that is - until I found this article.

Detoxing your body is actually simple.  If you're eating a lot of processed food, trying to eat things in their natural form.  If you're drinking soda and other processed drinks, try going back to plain old water.   You may have heard of many of these recommendations, but there are also some new ones you may not have hear of.  Read more:

Can I Get Pregnant With High FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) Naturally?

FSH:  Follicle Stimulating Hormone

Women who are trying to conceive, especially those over the age of 40 usually wonder:
"Can I get pregnant with high FSH?
Although having high FSH isn't a good thing when you're trying to get pregnant, it doesn't automatically mean that you are hopelessly infertile.  Many women do spontaneously conceive with high FSH levels - sometimes very high.  On the other hand, FSH is not a static thing, it can move up and down.

What Is The Average Age Of Menopause?

Pregnancy Over 40 Is Possible Until A Full Year of Menopause

Many women in their 40's who are trying to conceive wonder what the average age of menopause is for the general population.
See Also:  www.getpregnantover40.com for more on FSH and fertility
 According to this article, the average is about 50. Again, this is an average - some women will go through menopause later, some earlier. Menopause is defined as the absence of periods for a full 12 months. Until that time, pregnancy is possible - as this article mentions:
One important point made in the article is the following:

Menopause is a gradual process that can take several years. You're not really through menopause until you haven't had a period for 12 months. (During this time, keep using birth control if you don't want to become pregnant.)

Getting Pregnant Naturally After IVF and Cancer

Get Pregnant Naturally Against The Odds

I'm always finding amazing stories of women who become pregnant naturally even with supposedly unbeatable odds.  When I ran an infertility support group, there was a woman there in her 40's who had to discontinue fertility treatments to undergo chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. 
For more fertility after 40 resources, visit:  www.getpregnantover40.com
 This article is about a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer after her second IVF cycle ended in miscarriage. Instead of working on having a baby, she had to undergo chemotherapy and radiation to save her life. Due to the hormonal nature of her cancer, another IVF was out of the question. But then, fate stepped in. I know you can guess the ending this story - yep she got pregnant naturally and now has two children. Read more:

The devastated couple decided they wouldn’t give up hope and started to plan for another round of IVF in January 2004. But just a month before the treatment was due to begin, Gail discovered a lump in her breast.

“It was an aggressive stage three cancer which had already spread to my lymph nodes,” said Gail, 38.

“When they found out we were planning on IVF they rang us and said we would be unable to go ahead with it.

“It was a terrible year, first losing the baby then being diagnosed with cancer. The fear you get is horrendous.

“The whole of 2004 was spent having treatment. I had 18 sessions of chemotherapy and it was very difficult at times, trying to keep everything as normal as possible for Amy who was only three at the time.”

Gail’s chemotherapy ended in the July and she then went through five weeks of radiotherapy. She was told as the cancer was hormonal, they could have no further IVF in case it caused the disease to return.

“We spoke to a geneticist about the chances of having a baby and we were told it just wasn’t going to happen.

“We had wanted another child but always said that it was more important that Amy has her mummy, rather than a sibling.

“We had been through a lot and we put it to rest and settled on being a family of three - we were very happy with that.”

In November last year, Gail began to feel unwell.

“I started to worry that the cancer was returning,” she said. “I went to the hospital for a scan, worrying that it may be ovarian cancer.

“After all we had gone through, it was terrifying. But as they did the scan, the radiographer looked at me and said they had not found cancer, they had found a heartbeat!”

Improving and Increasing Cervical Mucus - Sperm Friendly Mucus

Cervical Mucus Critical To Getting Pregnant

I think most of us underestimate the importance of cervical mucus when trying to conceive.

 We focus on many of the other factors, but many sources claim that cervical mucus is critical and probably one of the best predictors of success.   The quality of your cervical mucus can be affected by your diet, fluid intake and supplements.  Here is an article that addresses what to look for and how to improve your cervical mucus.

Getting pregnant Over 40 Naturally may be helped by green tea, but can it lead to miscarriage?

Most sources agree that green tea is great for your overall health - it's loaded with antioxidants and once you acquire a taste for it, it's a great beverage hot or cold.  I've written before about whether or not green tea can enhance fertility and there are a couple of sides to the issue. 

See also:  www.getpregnantover40.com for more on fertility foods and a fertility tea recipe

There are some sources that say green tea can enhance fertility because of the polyphenols.  On the other hand, there are some sources that say drinking green tea can increase the risk of miscarriage because of "catachins".  Catachins are the compounds in green tea which may inhibit cancer cell growth by blocking certain enzymes.  However, they could also negatively affect a pregnancy because these enzymes are needed for the developing embryo.

 I'll admit, it's confusing. In my case, I did drink some green tea while trying to conceive, however I probably didn't drink it in the amount that would make a difference either way.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping For Fertility and Getting Pregnant

Emotional Freedom Technique and Fertility

I actually have tried EFT for different aches and pains and it was surprisingly effective.  EFT is something you can do on yourself and it incorporates the principals of acupuncture.  It involves "tapping on different points and repeating certain statements.  It works to relaxing the body and to get your mind on board with what you want to achieve or overcome.

Your Diet May Not Only Help Fertility, It May Help Prevent Genetic Disorders

Pregnancy Over 40, Diet Helps Prevent Birth Defects

I usually talk about how a good diet can help you conceive.

 If you are reading this blog, you are probably trying to conceive. Now is the time to examine your diet and to start taking the supplements you need.But I also found a great article about how a good diet can prevent many birth defects. Most of us already know how folic acid can help prevent neural tube defects (like spina bifida), but it may also play a role in Down Syndrome and other disorders. Read more:
  Folic Acid Deficiency Caused by Genes - Some segments of the population have genes that makes them more susceptible to folic acid deficiencies. Prenatal folic acid deficiencies are an established cause of birth defects such as spina bifida and cleft palates. As noted above, impaired folate metabolism has recently been implicated as a factor in Down syndrome.

Private Browsing, Is it Really Private?

How Much Data Are They Collecting On you?

Many of my readers are doing searches on some of the most private of bodily functions.  Is this something that you want your ISP, employer, or anyone else knowing about you?  Whenever I do a search on any of the major search engines, I am bombarded with ads that relate directly to my previous search.  It can be a little embarrassing to have ads about ovulation predictors, sperm counts, etc. pop up on my computer if someone were to walk by.  Even worse, what about some of the searches you may do on your break at work?  Can your employer track what you're doing?  Can health insurance companies get your health profile based on what kind of searches you have been doing?  UGGGGHHH...it's scarier than you may think.

Hidden Threats To Fertility From Wireless Technology

I am publishing an article in its entirety about how some wireless technology which we take for granted can harm fertility and possibly your pregnancy. Read more:

How Modern Technology Can Harm Your Fertility:

The hallmark of modern technology is convenience and it can come with at a high price. Modern technology emits high levels of electromagnetic radiation, which is a definite hazard to optimum fertility and the developing embryo. The best way to protect your fertility and safeguard the health and well-being of you and your prospective family is to avoid devices that harm your body's delicate cells.
In some instances it can actually be impossible to completely avoid radiation but being aware of specific sources of radiation and reducing your exposure to these devices is the best approach. One very simple way of doing this is to ensure that you don't carry your mobile phone close to your body such as in a pocket for example.
Here are some of the sources of radiation, which can harm reproduction you need be aware about:

Mobile phones produce radio frequency (RF) radiation. Most mobile phones transmit and receive RF radiation at frequencies between 825 and 915 megahertz (MHz). These radio waves are emitted by both mobile phone handsets and base stations. RF radiation has the ability to heat human tissue, similar to the way in which microwave ovens heat food. The thermal effects produced by the electromagnetic field of the radio waves cause polar molecules in the body to generate dielectric heat and this heat can cause live tissue to die.
In addition, essential to be aware of children's and developing babies' vulnerability to mobile phone radiation. Some studies have shown that mobile phone radiation can cause damage to the DNA of cells - there was damage to chromosomes, changes to the activity of certain genes, and an increase in the rate of cell division and replication. At a time when cells are rapidly dividing and growing into specialized cells and tissues, we need to realise that any interference in this process may result in the development of birth defects or illnesses. Many studies also link module phone use with decrease in production and quality of a man's sperm.

Cordless phones emit the same type of radiation as mobile phones, however some experts believe they are even more dangerous than mobile phones. This belief is due to the fact that the base stations of cordless phones emit the same type of radiation as a mobile phone station tower, and depending on the model sometimes more than twice the amount of radiation as mobile phone tower. Radiation emissions from the base station of a cordless phone can be as high as six volts per metre - which is twice as strong as those found within 100 metres of mobile phone station towers. When standing two metres away from the base of a cordless phone, you would still receive radiation as high as 2.5 volts per metre-that's 50 times what scientists regard as a safe level.
The best way to avoid exposure to cordless phone radiation is to not have one in your home or office. Use a standard fixed line and location phone instead-this particularly important if you are working to overcome fertility problems and/or miscarriages and want to have the healthiest possible baby. However, if this is not an option, try limiting the amount of time you spend on your cordless phone, and when you are not using the handset, keep it on the base station (at least 5 metres away from where you spend a lot of time in, such as living room, home office, bedroom etc. It is a good idea to move the base station to an area in your home where you do not spend a lot of time - such as the foyer or entry, or your garage.

Wireless technology such as wireless internet, computer networks and hot-spots as well as wireless mice, keyboards and speakers, also operate by using radio frequency non-ionising radiation similar to that used by mobile and cordless phones. Many believe that exposure to these low-level electromagnetic waves radiated from wireless technology devices can be as harmful to health and fertility, causing cellular damage and possibly cancer as the other types of radiation already previously described.
Studies conducted in this area show the non-thermal effects of this type of radiation include DNA damage and inability to self-repair, the opening of the blood-brain barrier (allowing toxins and pathogens to reach the brain), lowered immunity, decreased melatonin levels, cell damage, formation of micronuclei, changes in calcium metabolism affecting communication between cells, changes in brainwave patterns as seen on EEG's, plus effects observed on many different systems of the body. Although there are still no long term studies on the effects of exposure to the radiation emitted by wireless technologies, it is estimated the results will be very similar to those discussed previously, linked to mobile and cordless phone use.

Electric blankets (a blanket with a built-in heating element so the person sleeping can maintain a desired temperature) are very popular around the world. Many people use electric blankets because their use can reduce home heating costs, however, what a price for your health to pay. Electric blankets have been seen to produce electromagnetic radiation over 70,000 times higher than normal acceptable levels. The electromagnetic radiation produced by electric blankets is able to penetrate about 6-7 inches (close to 20cm) into the body. Studies have shown that the use of electric blankets has been linked to an increase in the incidence and development of childhood leukemia.
The use of electric blankets have also been linked to an increased rate of miscarriage, impaired baby development, increased stress levels, memory problems and possibly other types of cancers. One study showed that due to electromagnetic radiation emitted during operation, women who used electric blankets while pregnant had both, longer pregnancies and a higher miscarriage rate.
Mostly radiation is something we have to learn to live with because it is not going away. However making better choices to reduce your exposure is ideal for optimum fertility and the health of your prospective child.
