Fortunately, there are a number of simple steps you can take which will maximize your chances and get you on the right track not only to conceive quickly, but healthily too.
Being outside the normal healthy weight range for your height (whether underweight or overweight) can have an adverse effect on ovulation, with both groups displaying disruption. Steps should therefore be taken to get within the healthy weight range. If you are overweight, even slightly reducing body fat can help and if underweight, just a little gain can trigger ovulation.

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life that is often referred to as “the change of life.” It is the time when a woman’s body decreases its output of female hormones, which leads to the end of her menstrual cycle. Menopause usually begins between the ages of 40 and 50 and ends around the age of 60. It can also be kick-started by a radical hysterectomy at any age, or a round of chemotherapy that destroys the function of the ovaries.
Perimenopause is the first of three stages of menopause. It usually occurs between the ages of 40 to 50 and is when a woman’s body begins to produce a decreased level of the female hormones progesterone and estrogen. It can last for a period of two to ten years.

If you’re having a difficult time becoming pregnant, even with the assistance of fertility drugs and treatments, there is still hope. There are easy methods for you to use in order to drastically increase your chances of becoming pregnant so that you’ll soon be holding that precious bundle of joy in your arms.
Tip #1 – Insulin Check – Many women who find it difficult to get pregnant often suffer from a “silent” condition called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is sort of like a pre-diabetes state in which the body no longer responds properly to the amount of insulin that is produced. High amounts of blood glucose is produced which is why only extremely high amounts of insulin needs to be produced, since the body no longer responds to regular amounts of insulin. These spikes in blood glucose and insulin levels can interfere with ovulation, therefore making pregnancy nearly impossible. Continue reading »

When scholars refer to the sexual kung fu of the 3,000-year-old Taoist tradition, they’re really talking about delaying your guy’s ejaculation. By building up arousal, he’ll open himself up to more sensational orgasms and last longer in bed, explains Joy Davidson, Ph.D., author of How To A Babe. To try it, wrap your hands, one on top of the other, around his penis.
Then make gentle spirals up his shaft with each hand going in opposite directions. Or place your right hand at the top of his penis and your left hand at the base and make the same circular motions, moving your hands in opposite directions and drawing them closer until they. Meet in the middle. Then slowly rub his shaft with both palms for a minute or two. The idea is to bring him close to climax, downshift, and then repeat the spiral so you’re teasing out his time in ecstasy.
Orgasm will be.

I remember all too well taking a pregnancy test, having it come out negative – as always – and frantically taking it apart, layer upon layer, sure that somewhere within its recesses would be the faintest of lines. Holding the sodden strip up to the brightest light in the house and praying for what I knew, logically, that my eyes wouldn’t see. Finally bringing myself to throw it away, but furtively digging it out of the trash fifteen, then thirty minutes later to see if by some miracle the second line was just slow to appear. Feeling crazy and out of control for even taking the test in the first place, for letting my obsession get this far.
I remember steeling my nerves, or trying to, before getting out of the car to go shopping on a Sunday, when it seemed all the pregnant women in the world were out and about. The jealousy and searing pain when one would waddle by me like an emotional landmine. The sadness and animosity I felt toward women I didn’t even know – and the overwhelming self-pity that consumed me.

Many women do not enjoy receiving oral stimulation from their partner. Not because they don’t enjoy the activity, but because their partner lacks certain skills and sexual knowledge to make it worth the woman’s while. Once a woman finds a partner who can perform excellent cunnilingus, you may find she even prefers it to vaginal intercourse. You can be the worst lover in the world, but if you can give good head, you’ll redeem yourself in the eyes of any woman.
First things first is dealing with all the rumors about foul smell and taste that have been passed from generation to generation. The truth is, as long as your lady-friend isn’t some tramp that hasn’t showered in weeks that you picked up off the streets earlier today, or a marathon runner who hasn’t changed her shorts yet, the smell and taste of a woman’s vagina can be very bearable. In some cases, you may even learn to love it! If you’ve got any qualms about it however, suggest a sensual bath together where you can make sure that any unclean smells and tastes will be washed away.

Indigenous communities treat a girl’s first menstruation as a joyous occasion to observe with great festivity. Your daughter would probably find such exuberance to be most embarrassing in this day and age, but treating it as a minimal parenting obligation of little consequence, is unwise as well.
Many health issues of adolescence and of the early adult years can be traced to poor management or even to neglect at menarche. All kids do not develop at the same pace, and boys typically reach puberty a good 5 years later than girls. It is healthy, in some respects, for kids to grow up together regardless of gender, but parenting should account for the biological fact that girls will become women while male siblings are still immature. Further, some girls will achieve menarche as early as at 11 years, while others have to wait for about 2 more years to come of reproductive age. Continue reading »

Vitamin E is essential to healthy skin care. It is often a key element found in many skin care products. Clinical studies have shown that the use of Vitamin E can reduce the effects of scarring as well as reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Regular use can also diminish the appearance of wrinkles and results in smoother and more supple skin.
Vitamin E is beneficial to health in a variety of ways. Taking Vitamin E supplements each day can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and prevent abnormal blood clotting. Vitamin E is also credited with protecting the nervous system, lowering the risk of certain cancers and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It is said to protect the immune system, aid in healing skin injuries and even helps to prevent cataracts. Vitamin E is also important for healthy red blood cells. Continue reading »

Many women suffer the monthly symptoms of PMS, which can include irritability, bloating, and breast tenderness. Numerous studies are showing the relation between nutritional intake and PMS, and especially the affect that essential fatty acids can have on the hormone imbalances which can cause PMS. Gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA, is an essential fatty acid that can specifically affect the balance of hormones. A deficiency of GLA can cause hormone imbalances, which can in turn cause more drastic PMS symptoms.
Evening primrose oil is one of the best natural sources of GLA. It has been shown that women who regularly take evening primrose oil can have less noticeable PMS symptoms. Symptoms like mood swings, excess water retention, and extreme food cravings are lessened with daily doses of evening primrose oil. Evening primrose oil has also been shown to ease heavy bleeding, which can shorten the duration of a woman’s menstrual cycle in addition to lightening the bleeding during the period itself.
Evening primrose oil is fairly inexpensive, and can be bought in capsules that are usually 500 mg in size. Continue reading »

Calcium is well-known for its connection to healthy, strong bones and teeth. Calcium is a major contributing factor to the prevention of bone density loss and osteoporosis. These are by far the most obvious benefits of this important mineral, but there are actually many other benefits to consuming an adequate amount of calcium in your daily diet.
Calcium directly affects the hormones that control the condition of your arteries. Healthy arteries and low blood pressure are associated with healthy calcium levels in the body. Since your arteries and blood pressure affect the heart, calcium is highly beneficial in maintaining a healthy heart. Calcium is also connected with the health of your colon, and particularly the prevention of colon polyps and colon cancer. Calcium has an important role in maintaining a healthy weight, as well. The same hormone that influences the health of your arteries affects the way your body absorbs nutrients and fat. When this hormone is properly regulated by calcium, it is easier to maintain your weight.
Maintaining healthy levels of calcium is easy to do by monitoring your diet and, if necessary, taking a calcium supplement every day. Dairy products, dark green vegetables, and lintels are just some of the foods that are high in calcium. Continue reading »
