I know it's very tempting to put your life on hold while you are trying to conceive. Afterall, how much time is left after you eat, drink and sleep getting pregnant?

Here are some things I did to add balance to my life:

-Don't skip that vacation: I recall worrying that I might get pregnant and be too sick to go on vacation (many of the pregnancies I miscarried started with terrible morning sickness). If you're going through fertility treatments, I know taking a month off feels like a huge waste of your precious egg quality, but in the big scheme of things, a month isn't going to make that big of a difference (and if you are going through fertility treatments, your fertility clinic will be there when you get back). Besides, even though this is probably annoying to hear, many people really do get pregnant naturally on vacation.

-Don't skip social gatherings because you're feeling like the only one without kids. My experience is that yes, some people bring their kids to social events, but the kids are usually off playing away from the grownups. You won't necessarily feel like the odd one out.

-My husband and I always buy season passes to our favorite ski area. I always wondered if I was going to get pregnant and not be able to use it. Well, five out of six years I was able to ski...the year I got pregnant with my daughter I didn't ski once since we bought the pass right before I conceived - but buying it with the intent to use somehow made me feel like I had the upper hand on my infertility and my life.

-Think back to what you did for fun before trying to get pregnant. Doing things you enjoy will put you in the proper mindset to attract what you want in your life.

 Even if you did not grow up Catholic, you may still find some comfort in prayer to saints who are
associated with certain causes and conditions.  One of these is Saint Rita. 

Among the other areas, Rita is well-known as a patron of desperate, seemingly impossible causes and situations. This is because she has been involved in so many stages of life – wife, mother, widow, and nun.  Those who are trying to conceive or experiencing miscarriage may truly feel that getting pregnant and having a heathly pregnancy is truly an impossible cause.  But, sometimes the things that
we think are out of our reach can come easily.  I have done many blog posts on women who went through fertility treatments only to fail time and time again.  Then, miraculously, they get pregnancy by surprise.

My ever expanding jewelry line just wasn't complete without a Saint Rita Necklace.  Click the picture below for more information.

Are Fibroids Preventing You From Having Children?

Guest Post By Vladimir Troche, M.D.

Fibroids are sometimes found during an infertility evaluation when tests such as a pelvic ultrasound, hysterosonogram or hysterosalpingogram are ordered. Fibroids or leiomyomas are benign smooth muscle tumors of the uterus. They are classified according to their location in three types: (1) subserosal - when the fibroid grows under the outer layer or serosa of the uterus; (2) intramural - when the fibroid grows within the muscular wall of the uterus (myometrium), and (3) submucosal or intracavitary- when the fibroid grows just under the lining of the uterine cavity (mucosa) or it occupies the inside of the uterine cavity. Submucosal or intracavitary fibroids can change the shape of the uterine cavity. Large intramural fibroids may alter the blood flow to the uterine lining and may

also alter the shape of the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids usually don't alter the shape of the uterine cavity, but when large can cause discomfort.

https://fertilityshop.blogspot.com/Most fibroids are usually small, asymptomatic, and don't require treatment. These benign tumors only need close gynecological observation to document changes in size or the early onset of symptoms. Common symptoms associated to fibroids are back pain, abdominal pressure or discomfort, urinary frequency, rectal pressure or discomfort, and periods that can be painful, heavy and prolonged.
Fibroids are associated with infertility in 5 to 10% of cases. Nevertheless, when all other causes of infertility are excluded fibroids may account for only 2 to 3% of infertility cases. Fibroids may cause reduced fertility or infertility by:
1. Creating an abnormal uterine cavity. An enlarged or elongated cavity could interfere with the sperm transport, and a cavity with an abnormal contour could prevent normal implantation.

2. Fibroids can result in a markedly distorted uterus and cervix. The distortion could result in decreased access to the cervix by the ejaculated sperm preventing its effective transport to the uterus.

3. The uterine segments of the fallopian tubes could be obstructed or distorted by fibroids.
When infertile women present with uterine fibroids every effort should be made to exclude any other possible causes of infertility. A standard infertility evaluation should take place and an assessment of the uterine cavity should be performed by hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or "fluid" ultrasound (hysterosonogram). Only then a decision should be made regarding the management of the fibroids.
Most uterine fibroids don't need to be removed except in select cases. The medical literature suggests that removal can be beneficial when the uterine cavity is distorted by the fibroids. In addition, some reports suggest that their removal may also be indicated when they are 5 centimeters or more in diameter and are located within the wall of the uterus (intramural). Otherwise, expectant management is recommended when the uterine cavity is normal, the fibroids are small, or when they are located on the surface of the uterus.
Fibroids are removed in a surgical procedure called a "myomectomy". Three types of myomectomy can be performed: abdominal myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, and hysteroscopic myomectomy. The abdominal myomectomy requires an abdominal incision usually of the "bikini" type, and through the incision the fibroids are removed from the uterus. This abdominal approach is the best procedure when fibroids are large, numerous, and or located deep within the muscle of the uterus. Fibroids can also be removed by laparoscopy, and this type of myomectomy is best when fibroids are few in number, superficial in location and small in size. Hysteroscopic myomectomy is recommended when most of the fibroid is located within the cavity of the uterus. Through the uterine cervix an operative hysteroscope is inserted and the myomectomy is then performed. Endoscopic scissors, laser or electrocautery are employed to perform this type of myomectomy.
A myomectomy is a relatively safe procedure that results in few serious complications. Postoperative adhesion formation is a common complication and good surgical technique combined with adhesion-prevention barriers should be routinely used at myomectomy.
There are other options for the treatment of uterine fibroids, but these alternatives are not recommended for women who desire fertility. Some of these options are:
1. Uterine artery embolization (UAE) - results in the obstruction of blood flow to the fibroids, which then causes them to shrink. This procedure is quite successful in reducing tumor size and decreasing symptoms. Pregnancies have been reported after UAE but the safety of this procedure in women who want to get pregnant has not been established.
2. Medical therapies with agents such as GnRH agonists, progestational agents, and RU486 (mifepristone). These agents can decrease uterine size and symptoms, but once the treatment is discontinued the fibroids can grow back to their initial size. The use of these drugs is not effective in promoting fertility and is not recommended when women are attempting pregnancy.
3. New techniques are being developed for the treatment of uterine fibroids. One of these new techniques is laparoscopic myolysis in which a needle is used to apply electric current directly to fibroids. The goal is to disrupt the blood flow of fibroids and cause them to shrink over time. A similar laparoscopic procedure uses super cooled cryoprobes to destroy the fibroids. Another technique uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to target a high intensity ultrasound waves to destroy the fibroids. Again, the safety of these procedures in women who want to get pregnant has not been established.
Educating yourself about your options and your physician treating you for fibroids is essential. Go to Dr. Troche's West Valley Fertility Center Arizona and get more information and knowledge.

 Stress Hormones and Fertility:  Stress May Prevent Release Of GnRH

We all know that stress can impact fertility. Fight or flight responses affect hormones and so on. But another hormone, GnRH is also affected and a lack of this hormone prevents other hormones from releasing at the right time.
 Gonadotropin-Inhibitory Hormone can prevent the release of GNRH and it has a connection with stress.  We've all probably heard of cortisol as the stress hormone, but this article talks about GNIH and how it can cause hormonal imbalance.

So there really is a reason to take a "procreation vacation". Read more:

New research from the University of California Berkeley is also showing that stress can also impact fertility by causing the increase of another reproductive hormone called Gonadotropin-Inhibitory Hormone (GnIH). This hormone further impedes procreation by preventing the GnRH hormone from being released.

"Stress had already been shown to affect all those other more traditional players in the sex hormone cascade but no one had looked at GnIH yet," says Elizabeth Kirby, a member of the research team. "So, our research basically adds a new piece to the puzzle of sex and reproduction - a new hormone known to suppress reproduction is also now known to increase in response to stress."

Trying To Get Pregnant?  Know When You're Ovulating

If you've been trying to conceive, you're probably already an expert on predicting ovulation.
It seems like there are so many factors that come into play when you're trying to conceive, but ovulation is one of the major ones. 
Here is an article which talks about some methods you've already heard before, but it has some new ones as well. Read more:

The "Regular" Menstrual Cycle– Generally speaking, ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the first day of the next menstrual cycle. For women that have no physical signs of ovulation, ovulation predictor kits, which test the urine for a hormone (LH) secreted prior to ovulation, can be used.
Changes in Cervical Mucous – Cervical mucous becomes copious, clear and stretchy.
Mid-cycle Cramps – This may signal that ovulation is occurring or has occurred.
Basal Body Temperature (BBT) – This is only good to signal that ovulation has already occurred. The

general rule is that you have ovulated when your temperature rises 0.2 degrees higher than any temperature from the previous 6 days, and it stays elevated for at least 3 consecutive days after ovulation.

  Changes in the Cervix – During the beginning of your cycle, your cervix is low, hard and closed. As ovulation takes place, it pulls up, softens and opens just a bit. You can check with two fingers and track what it feels like. Along with the other clues, this can be a good indicator of ovulation.
Changes in Emotions – Because of the shift in hormones, many women become moody during ovulation. If you get moody during the middle of your cycle, you may be such a woman.
Breast Tenderness – Many women get breast tenderness and pain during ovulation. Again, this is caused by the hormone shift.
Increased Sex Drive – An amplified libido is often a sign of ovulation.
Swollen Vulva – Some women experience a swollen vagina or labia during ovulation.
Bloating – Some signs of ovulation mimic the signs of PMS, and many women feel bloated during this time.

Don't label yourself infertile. Don't say you can't have a baby. And, select your healthcare professionals wisely. This very interesting article talks about something called the "nocebo" affect.
Basically this means that when you receive a diagnosis, even if its wrong, you may actually manifest that condition. I finally gave up working with doctors when I was trying to conceive. It was too depressing to be constantly labeled "infertile" and there was a piece of me that knew pumping myself full of hormones and chemicals just wasn't the best way to go. Maybe that's why I had my best
success following an all natural route. Read more:

Though the mechanism remains a mystery, but at least now this kind of phenomenon has a name. The
"nocebo effect" is the lesser-known opposite number of the placebo effect, and describes any case where putting someone in a negative frame of mind has an adverse effect on their health or well-being. Tell people a medical procedure will be extremely painful, for example, and they will experience more pain than if you had kept the bad news to yourself. Similarly, experiences of side effects within the placebo groups of drug trials have shown that a doctor's warning about the possible side effects of a medicine makes it much more likely that the patient will report experiencing those effects.

This is not just in the mind: it is also about physical effects. The stress created by the nocebo effect can have a long-lasting impact on the heart, for example – perhaps serious enough to cause fatal damage.

If you've never heard of a "chakra", it is a Sanskrit word and it means wheel or vortex. A chakra is thought to be part of the non-physical body through which energy moves. Although there are many more than 7, typically the following represents the main chakras of the body:


You can see that each chakra has a name and is associated with a particular color and stone.  The sacral chakra governs both female and male fertility.  I have created a new page on my website with
much more.  If you are trying to conceive, you will probably be most interested in the Sacral Chakra which controls the reproductive system.  The stone associated with the sacral chakra is Carnelian which is said to improve blood flow and circulation which is important for all aspects of health but especially for the menstrual cycle and the pelvic organs.
