A SPERM ALLERGY MAY PREVENT CONCEPTION

Pregnancy Over 40, Sperm Allergies May Interfere

Most of us probably think of allergies as hay fever, food sensitivities and the like.
 But as the article explains below, you may have sperm allergies which may be sabatoging your efforts to conceive. Read more:

"Antisperm antibodies may be a complicating factor in as much as 5 to 10 percent of infertility cases," says Dr. Witkin. He adds that almost all men who have undergone a vasectomy (surgical operation that causes sterility) produce antisperm antibodies after the procedure. If he undergoes a vasectomy reversal, the antisperm antibodies will interfere with conception.

So what causes the immune system to make antisperm antibodies? A genital tract infection, a congenital abnormality in the male genital tract, a vasectomy (as mentioned above) or a varicocoele (a varicose vein in the testicles) can cause these antibodies to develop. Wives of men with abnormal sperm are also at increased risk for developing antisperm antibodies.

Testing 1, 2, 3
When a couple experiences unexplained infertility, their doctor may recommend testing for antisperm antibodies. For males, a semen analysis can detect motionless or clumped sperm and identify the need for additional testing. Females undergo a post-coital test, in which a fluid sample is obtained from the cervix six to 12 hours after intercourse. The sample is then analyzed for the presence of shaking sperm. "In some cases, however, these tests may be normal, and antisperm antibodies may still be present," says Dr. Witkin.

A definitive diagnosis is reached after a couple undergoes a sperm antibody test. Dr. Witkin recommends the immunobead binding test (IBT) or the Mixed Agglutination Reaction (MAR) test. The IBT assesses the presence of antisperm antibodies in semen, cervical mucous or the blood of either person. The MAR is performed on a semen sample. "There are other tests available but they are non-specific and inaccurate," he says. "In my office we perform the immunobead binding test."

CUPPING: A FORM OF ACUPRESSURE TO ENHANCE FERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40 Help From Cupping Therapy

I have heard of cupping from a number of sources (including my grandmother who used to use it for belly aches!).  Cupping is somewhat like acupuncture and it is supposed to help with circulation and lymphatic flow.

See also www.getpregnantover40.com for  my Fertility Bodywork Video which includes acupressure which you can perform on yourself

This site talks about some celebrities who have used it and it also gives reasons why some don't beleive in it:

From the site:

this featured Stork Necklace with Rose Quartz
Dating back 5,000 years, the therapy is a form of acupuncture, and is based on the idea that suction from the cups draws the skin up and mobilises blood and energy around the body. 
‘If someone is under stress, or they’ve suffered a physical trauma like a pulled shoulder, the energy in their body can become stagnated,’ explains Ian Stones, an acupuncturist in Farnham, Surrey, and member of the British Acupuncture Council, who has been practising cupping for six years

Typically, a flame is first placed inside a glass or rubber cup, so the heat can create a partial vacuum, before the flame is removed and the cup held to the skin for about three minutes.
Although the resulting marks can look alarming, they are temporary, and this kind of cupping should not hurt in any way as the cups used are thick-rimmed and do not heat up.

47 YEAR OLD TALKS OF HER UNEXPECTED PREGNANCY

I love sharing success stories of women who get pregnant naturally in their 40's and even 50's.  Here
is a story of a woman who already had grandchildren and found herself unexpectedly pregnant in her upper 40's.  Sometimes, when you're not planning it, pregnancy can be met with feelings of anxiety and many older women choose to terminate their pregnancies (the unexpected rate of pregnancy over 40 is second only to teenagers).  But, the woman in this story did have her baby and enjoyed every minute.  Read more:

When the test flashed up a blue line showing it was positive I was so stunned I burst into tears.
Allan was characteristically laidback saying we could talk about it in the morning.
The next day as I booked an appointment with my GP I clung to the hope that the test was wrong.


It wasn’t and my doctor cheerfully booked me in for a scan.

I knew there were risks to being a “geriatric mother” – how I was classed by doctors at the age of 46.
I was told there was a one-in-20 chance of my baby having abnormalities but hearing all the scare stories made my bond with the baby growing inside me stronger.
I felt so protective of my bump and clung fiercely to positivity and hope.
There were advantages too to being an older expectant mother.
First time round in my late teens I’d been naive...

...She was perfect and being a mum to a newborn again was like riding a bike.
Two decades had passed but I hadn’t forgotten how to do the night feeds or change nappies.
It was exhausting, yes, but it would have been whether I was 17 or 47.
This time I knew how precious every second with my baby was.

INOSITOL, B VITAMIN THAT CAN HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

Getting Pregnant With The Help Of Inositol

I've been hearing more and more about inositol for female fertility. Inositol or sometimes called myo-inositol can help with insulin resistance and it is one of the B vitamins. It can help with ovulatory disorders and help women who have stopped getting their periods as a result. Here is an

excerpt from a study done on women who took myo-inositol

 "the number of mature oocytes was significantly increased in the myo-inositol group compared to D-chiro-inositol. Concurrently, the number of immature oocytes decreased in myo-inositol treated patients. Furthermore, the myo-inositol-treated group showed an increase in the mean number of top quality embryos and in the total number of pregnancies compared to the D-chiro-inositol-treated group.

BEE POLLEN GREAT IF YOU WANT TO CONCEIVE

Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly From Our AffiliatesI've been hearing about bee pollen for years.  Even when I was in college, long before I was trying to conceive, I had heard about how many athletes take bee pollen because of its nutritional benefits.  If you are trying to conceive, these products can enhance fertility in both men and women. For women, they may help regulate cycles, improve egg quality and even help with PMS. In men, they can improve sperm quality and output and reduce infammation of the prostate. For women and couples experiencing miscarriage, bee propolis (the substance used by bees to seal up small openings in their hives made from sap and other substances) can help with antibodies that attack a developing fetus (similar to an allergic response). Bee propolis can help with sperm antibodies in women (which can attack sperm. Men can also have auto-immune reactions to their own sperm. Many supplements contain all of these bee products.

WHAT ARE CASTOR OIL PACKS, HOW CAN THEY HELP FERTILITY?

Most of us have heard of Castor Oil, and believe me, it's usually not something most people would willingly take! So what is it? There is actually a Castor Oil Plant. The seeds are taken from the plant and the oil is extracted from the seeds. Castor oil has many uses in foods and other products. It is also
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm

used as a laxative which is probably why most people feel like the product has an image problem!
However, did you know that you can use Castor Oil externally? Castor Oil, when placed on the abdomen is thought to stimulate circulation of the reproductive system and to stimulate the lymphatic system. It can reduce inflammation and it can help detoxify by stimulating liver function naturally.
You can buy Castor Oil Packs pre-made, but why not make your own? This video which is also on my website explains more:

CHEMICALS WOMEN WEAR IN MAKE-UP ALTER HORMONES

Chemicals In Cosmetics May Alter Hormones

One of the things I talk about in my book is how women should avoid some of the hormone altering substances in make-up, lotion, etc.
This article  gives some examples of things to avoid and it also has a link to the cosmetic database. Read more:

The 515 Chemicals Women Wear

From the article:

When shopping, there are a few key ingredients to be avoid. However, due to lax regulation, you may find them in products marked “organic” and “all-natural,” so be on the lookout. Choose from the many nail polishes that have been reformulated to remove a common “toxic trio:” Dibutyl phthalate, a reproductive toxin; toluene, which affects the nervous system and may cause headaches; and formaldehyde, which can cause allergies and irritation. Stay away from sodium lauryl and laureth

sulfate, which are spopular in cleaning products, such as body washes, as they can cause skin irritation.

Triclosan and triclocarban, which pop up in antibacterial hand soap, can damage both the thyroid and the environment. Instead, use plain soap. If you wash for 20 seconds, you’ll be just as germ-free.

Finally, stay away from parabens, common in shampoos, lotions and shaving gels. These preservatives have been so widely and publicly exposed as toxic contaminants that it is now relatively easy to find clearly-marked parabens-free products. Brown also counsels cutting out fragrance completely, since the term “fragrance” is poorly defined and could contain any number of mysterious and unhealthy synthetic compounds.

SHORT MENSTRUAL CYCLES AND FERTILITY

Trying To Conceive Over 40, Are Your Cycles Too Short?

Progesterone supplementation is frequently given to women with luteal phase defect.
 However, if you're on the natural route, aside from natural progesterone cream, there are dietary
changes you can make to help correct your cycles.

When I was trying to conceive over the age of 40, I had my progesterone levels checked and I was told they had a "ski jump" pattern.  They were high in the beginning of my cycle, but then they took a nose dive too early in the second half.  This can make it difficult for you to carry a pregnancy because progesterone ("pro-gestation") is needed to sustain your uterine lining.

YOGA POSES TO HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

Yoga Poses To Help You Get Pregnant Over 40

Even though we're a nation of couch potatoes, or perhaps more accurately, "office chair potatoes", for much of my adult life, I had the opposite problem. I worked out too much. I was an exercise fanatic - and the harder and more high impact the exercise was, the better.
When I went in for a few trial treatments of acupuncture, the acupuncturist told me that my body didn't have the "constitution" for heavy exercise. She said it was much harder to conceive when you're under so much physical stress.

"So what should I do"? I asked. She recommended yoga. After some research, I found that there are
some yoga poses and postures that can directly benefit the reproductive system by opening up the pelvic region and the surrounding structures to increase pelvic circulation. Additionally, yoga can help with overall relaxation.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Our selection of Fertility Bracelets, click here

Here is a summary of some of the yoga poses which can benefit the reproductive system:

1. The Bridge Pose - the bridge stimulates abdominal organs and can relieve menstrual discomfort if done regularly. It calms the brain and can help with stress. Start by lying on the floor. Bend your knees, put your fee flat on the floor as close to your sit bones as possible. Bring your buttocks up until you form a bridge and bring your hands together clasped underneath you.
2. The Cobbler's Pose - this pose also stimulates abdominal organs, ovaries and is thought to be a natural remedy for infertility. Sit on the floor, bend your knees and let them lay out to the side. Bring your feet together and hold the toes or ankles with your hands.
3. The Lotus pose - this pose stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen and bladder. It can help ease the pain of childbirth if done throughout pregnancy. This pose starts by sitting cross legged on the floor. Slowly bring one foot on top of your thigh then the other foot on top of the other thigh. If this is painful, you may stay seated cross legged. Bring your thumb and middle fingers together and rest on your knees
4. The Reclining Hero pose - this pose probably needs to be done with support (a bolster pillow can be used along the length of your back). The reclining hero pose helps open up and stretch the abdomen and it can ease menstrual pain. This pose begins by kneeling then sitting down between your feet then slowly reclining down until you are laying on the floor. This is an intermediate pose and you may need additional support with a second pillow on your back until you become more experienced.

In my DVD, "Fertility Bodywork"(www.getpregnantover40.com) I demonstrate these yoga poses among others and I also have a segment on fertility pelvic massage, acupressure and reflexology and daily routines which help increase pelvic circulation and oxygenation.

HOW LIGHT AND DARK AFFECT OVULATION AND FERTILE DAYS

Ovulation Light and Dark

I have done numerous posts on how light (and dark) affect fertility. Here is another article which addresses the affects of light on both women and men and cites a study where women actually slept next to a light bulb for part of their cycle to get it regulated.
See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on ovulation and fertility 
 I don't want to compare women with chickens, but I have heard that farmers that raise chickens put them on an artificial light/dark cycle to get them to lay eggs on schedule.  It's possible that humans may function the same way!

From the article:
To keep functioning as it should, the master clock needs to re-sync itself all the time using a very simple signal: a period of bright light followed by a period of darkness, i.e., day and night. That light-dark signal reaches the master clock in the brain via the ocular nerve, which relays the signal to the brain’s pineal gland. A century ago, before the widespread use of artificial lights, the pineal gland

(which produces the hormone melatonin) had no problem obtaining the feedback it so desperately seeks. Today it’s not that easy. But once you understand how your body responds to light, you can take steps to make sure that you get the light you need to keep your reproductive system functioning like clockwork.

Light and the Menstrual Cycle
The study of circadian (24-hour) rhythms is still a relatively new science, so it’s not surprising that the research demonstrating a link between light and fertility is still fairly new as well. What makes it so exciting is that it’s a multidisciplinary effort, with contributions coming from experts in gynecology, physics, biology, nursing, astrophysics, psychiatry, and andrology, among others.

Women’s menstrual cycles follow an approximately 28-day pattern based on the 29-day cycle of the moon. The moon’s light ebbs and flows over the course of the 29 days, with the days surrounding a full moon being the brightest. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, researchers started to focus on using light exposure that mimicked moonlight as a means of regulating the menstrual cycle.

Then in 1990, Psychiatry Research published a study (“Night Light Alters Menstrual Cycles”) reporting that women with long and irregular menstrual cycles who slept with a 100-watt bulb beside them from days 13 to 17 of their cycles succeeded in regulating and shortening those cycles from a mean of 45.7 days to 33.1 days.

COLD MEDICINES, CONCEPTION AND PREGNANCY

Trying To Get Pregnant, Some Cold Medicines May Reduce Fertility

Since we're in the middle of the cold and flu season, and most people reading this blog are trying to conceive, I thought this article might be helpful.
See:  www.getpregnantover40.com for more on conceiving over 40 and avoiding pregnancy complications
 Some medications can hurt your chances of conception and most shouldn't be taken if you're already pregnant. Read more:

Colds and Conception
Nothing to Sneeze About

From the article:

Are cold medications safe for the baby you may be carrying, and if you're not already pregnant, could these medications reduce your chances?

In terms of fertility, your answer is fairly simple. According to Dr. R. Don Gambrell, an OB/GYN and a clinical professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, very few over-the-counter medications have been shown to reduce fertility. Ibuprofen, naproxen and similar painkillers are the
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

exception. In high doses, they can prevent a ripe egg from being released from the ovary.

In contrast, guaifenesin, an ingredient in cough syrup, has actually been prescribed for infertility caused by thick cervical mucous. "It decreases the cellular content and increases the quality and makes it easier for sperm to penetrate," Dr. Gambrell says.


Maybe a Baby?
If there's a chance you're pregnant, the question is more complicated. Doctors used to believe that the two weeks after conception and before implantation were a time when your baby couldn't be harmed by medications. That's no longer thought to be true, says Dr. Donald R. Mattison, medical director of the March of Dimes. Even before the embryo implants, cells are beginning to divide and differentiate. "Most physicians now think of all of the period in the first three months of pregnancy as being at risk," he says.

According to Dr. Mattison, most cold medicines are probably safe for your baby. But since they haven't all been thoroughly studied for safety during pregnancy, there's no way of knowing for sure. "In general, what I would encourage patients to do is minimize the use of any medication at all," he says.
