INOSITOL, MYOINOSITOL FOR FERTILITY, EGG QUALITY

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
 from: nih.gov:
 "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.

VITEX, CHASTEBERRY: HOW IT HELPS FERTILITY AND HORMONES

What is Vitex or Chasteberry, where does it come from?

You may have heard of Vitex (Vitex Cactus Agnus) or commonly known as Chasteberry. It is a flowering plant and it grows in warmer climates. It got it's name because it was thought to be an "anaphrodisiac" (the opposite of an aphrodisiac) so it was thought to keep women chaste. However, some sources claim it is an aphrodisiac.
Vitex is thought to have a positive affect on reproductive hormones because of its action on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.
Vitex acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands inside the brain by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) production and mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).

WHO IS SAINT GERARD, PATRON SAINT OF FERTILITY PREGNANCY

I did grow up Catholic, but I would have to say my religious beliefs are a bit more open minded now that I'm older.  However, Catholic Saints are still a part of the world culture and many people pray to saints for help with difficult situations in their life.  This post is about Saint Gerard who is considered the Patron (helping) Saint of Fertility, Pregnancy and Motherhood.  So how did Saint Gerard Majella become known as the Saint to help with getting pregnant?  Here is the story:

Majella's last recorded miracle is one that many credit toward his becoming the patron of expectant mothers. Shortly before his death, Majella encountered a young girl. He had dropped his handkerchief and she set out to return it, only to be told to keep it. Majella told her she "may need it someday." Years after Majella's passing, the young girl became married and with child. She unexpectedly went into labor and was on the verge of losing her baby. She called for Majella's handkerchief to be applied to her. Almost immediately, her pain abated and she proceeded to give birth to a healthy child.

PREGNANCY OVER 50, YES, IT HAPPENS NATURALLY, NO IVF

I frequently write about pregnancy over 40...I share how I prepared my body, mind with the right foods, the right lifestyle and paying attention to the mind-body connection.  My pregnancy was very deliberate.  But what about older women who get pregnant by surprise?  Most women over 50 aren't trying to get pregnant.  Yes, there are those who use donor eggs and go through fertility treatments, but there are also those who are completely shocked that they got pregnant.  Pregnancy over 40 certainly isn't as common as pregnancy over 40, but it does happen.  I have devoted a page on my website to this topic.  These are documented cases of women who were shocked to find out that they were pregnant.  Most thought they were going through some type of terminal illness.  It just goes to show you that age is just a number.

PRAYERS TO GET PREGNANT, FERTILITY, MOTHERHOOD & MISCARRIAGE

I know many people use prayer instead of or with visualization and meditation.  If prayer is part of your daily ritual and religion is an important part of your life, by all means, make it part of your fertility routine.  Even though I said many prayers on the road to parenthood, I found visualization and meditation to be empowering as well (see my meditation page here).  Do both if you choose.

If you need some fertility prayers, here are a few from the Christian perspective.  I realize I have readers from all over the world with different religions, but these can be modified to fit your belief system:


Catholic Prayer

Your holy image.
Guide me in all my choices so that this
conception, my pregnancy and my baby's birth

HOW PESTICIDES CAN THREATEN PREGNANCY AND FERTILITY

Pesticides in Pregnancy

I previously published an article about how pesticide exposure in pregnancy can affect the child's IQ. I've also heard that if you examine the breast tissue of most women, you will find pesticides and other hormone disrupting chemicals.
 That's scary since most women don't live near areas where these chemicals are sprayed. We're just exposed to them in our day to day lives. Pregnant women are no exception.  The University of Granada found that there were fifteen different pesticide chemicals and substances found in pregnant women.  Substances called organochlorines could affect a baby's urogenital system development.
It's hard to avoid these substances because they can not only be in our food, but also our water, air and soil.

BEST INTERCOURSE POSITIONS TO GET PREGNANT

Trying To Conceive Over 40, Positions That Help

Okay, this isn't exactly a dinner table topic when you're at your mom's house, but it is certainly worth reading about.
 There are certain sexual positions which are better than others if you're trying to conceive. Here is an article that explains more  (the first one mentioned is how I conceive my daughter):

From the article:


Best Positions
The man-on-top position works well when trying to conceive. Place a small pillow under your hips
https://fertilityshop.blogspot.com/

following intercourse so that your cervix basically rests in the pool of semen for a short time (perhaps 20 minutes or so). This will allow the sperm time to easily swim up through the cervix. (Important Note: Do not use a large pillow, or you may sabotage your efforts, since the sperm may then puddle behind your cervix. Not a good place to be when trying to reach that egg.)

If you have a tipped uterus, you may have better luck having intercourse from behind (hands and knees position). By having intercourse in this position it allows the sperm better access to the cervix.

Positons to Avoid
For most women it makes sense to avoid straddling their partner while making love -- woman-on-top, sitting or standing -- since this can cause the semen to leak and may result in fewer sperm making their way to the egg.

YOGA POSES TO HELP GET PREGNANT, IMPROVE FERTILITY AND CIRCULATION

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.

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" 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.
