What they don't really explain about the pill..

When you are a teen and sex starts crossing your mind getting on the pill seems like a great option, I know because this was my thought process as a teen. In my state (Arizona) teens could head to planned parenthood wanting to go on the pill and would be given a prescription without even having a parent present. They made it so easy and it really did keep me from getting pregnant as a teen. Now I am 26 year old woman who has been off the pill for over a year. Initially while I was on the pill I noticed a decline in vaginal lubrication (caused by the hormones in the birth control pills I was taking) and sex became painful and not so much fun to have. Eventually...

The test results are in, and THEY SUCK!

This morning I got an email suggestion from Teeni with a yummy suggestion to help us conceive, ICE CREAM (you can read the article here)! A book called The Fertility Diet offers suggestions to help you conceive, like having ice cream and other dairy fat times. Another book I have been eyeing about this very same topic is Fertility, Cycles & Nutrition. Turns out I'll be needing to read these books for solutions because my doctor has not offered anymore insight into what is going on with my body. I got my blood test results back, via a little generic note that came in the mail on Friday. After being told I "am not ovulating" at my annual exam by my doc I went across the hall and the ultrasound tech said...

I am home from the Doc…

I am home from the doc and my arm is sore from having blood drawn. I did a urine test and it came back negative for the pregnancy hormone. I also got to be a "training" patient today as my regular doc was being shadowed. Don't worry they asked for consent and since I have been observed before I didn't mind and extra set of hands and eyes. N came with me to the doc today and I am glad he did because we got some weighing news. In addition to not being pregnant my doctor confirmed my suspicions about whacked hormone levels. She even said that I most likely did not ovulate as my chart suggests. Oh and am am still likely to have endometriosis. My weight may be a factor...

How charting your temperature can give insight about your hormones.

Fertility awareness combines charting of your waking temperatures, and other signs of fertility to track, monitor and understand what is happening with your body reproductively speaking. People who are into doing things the natural way, those who are having trouble conceiving a child and those who are religious often learn the fertility awareness method. It allows you to conceive or prevent conception of children during your fertile years. Today I am outlining the two reproductive hormones Estrogen and Progesterone that are naturally produced by our bodies and how your waking temperature (BBT) provides information about your bodies production of these hormones. Obviously your waking temperatures can be inaccurately influenced by sickness, fever, the time you take your temperature from day to day, alcohol consumption and many other factors but if you are...
