Ovulation Symptoms

Signs of Ovulation; 1, 2 and  3: Sign 1: Mittelschmerz as a sign of ovulation Mittelschmerz is one of the common symptoms of ovulation but not a good sign. It is generally associated with small cysts on the ovaries. Mittelschmerz is also a post ovulation sign which is helpful if you want to know if you are ovulating but not if you are trying to conceive and looking for signs of ovulation for preconception. Mittlelschmerz gets it name from the pain, a twangy kind of pain in the middle of the cycle. While it is associated with ovulation it is an “after thought” to ovulation. The word mittelschmerz is German and has it roots from “mid-cycle pain”. Many may have felt this pain but never known what it was and actually some find comfort understanding the reason for this twinge at ovulation time. Sign 2: Basal Body Temperature as a sign of ovulation Another sign of ovulation and even pre-ovulation is found in monitoring basal body temperature. Basically, you roll over in the morning, turn off the alarm and reach for the thermometer. By lying still for the next couple minutes (until the electronic thermometer beep sounds) you can track changes in the cycle by this “base line” temperature. Thus, it gets it name basal body temperature. Two key things play in the role of monitoring impending ovulation when taking basal body temperature: The first sign that ovulation is possible is that temperatures “should” be lower in the beginning of the cycle. This part is known as the follicular stage.The follicular stage is named that because it is when...

Clomid

Clomid or Clomiphene Citrate: The whole story Please consider liking this page or linking to us and helping others not to fall prey.  I have added a few questions as a checklist at the end of some paragraphs. Please read this carefully and consider natural alternatives such as cleansing, dietary changes or herbs.  Please consider cleansing and building for TTC for the sake of your own health and that of your baby.  Clomid forces an action that is not natural to the body and its intensity in the days of use is only the beginning of the many dangers. According to the Physician’s Desk Reference Why is this drug prescribed? Clomiphene is prescribed for the treatment of ovulatory failure in women who wish to become pregnant and whose husbands are fertile and potent.     My notes: Has your husband been checked with a semen analysis test?  See testing in our store. Most important facts about this drug Properly timed sexual intercourse is very important to increase the chances of conception. The likelihood of conception diminishes with each succeeding course of treatment. Your doctor will determine the need for continuing therapy after the first course. If you do not ovulate after 3 courses or do not become pregnant after 3 ovulations, your doctor will stop this therapy. My notes: If you have been on Clomiphene, has your doctor informed you of this?   How many courses have you completed?  Does your doctor have your best interest in mind if you have been given more than the FDA allows? How should you take this medication? Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your...

Egg Whites for Cervical Mucus

How to use egg whites in place of cervical mucus: Leave egg out to make it room temperature.   So you won’t be shocked by the cold.   : ) When ready to use it,  just crack the egg open and pour only the whites into a small cup, bowl or jar and use an eye dropper or syringe to squeeze in the egg whites. Have DH shoot it into you while you are laying with your legs up, maybe even propped up on pillows.  “Dance your dance” and relax. Then it is up to the “swimmers” to begin their journey. Important Note:  It is the protein makeup that makes egg whites a viable alternative to cervical mucus.   Vaseline or lubricants like KY jelly will not give the same results and will actually deter fertility. Consider a sperm safe gel like Slippery Stuff instead of these other over-the-counter aids. Share and...

Galactorhea

Galactorrhea, Milk Consumption and Fertility from the book Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition by Marilyn M. Shannon New research provides evidence that in some women milk consumption may be related to decreased fertility as they age as well as early  menopause.  This is because a sugar found only in milk, galactose, is harmful to the ovaries.  When the original milk sugar, lactose, is digested, two smaller sugars, glucose and galactose, are produced. The liver quickly takes up the galactose and converts it into glucose, so that what we call “blood sugar” is all glucose.  However, some women cannot make this conversion well, and they ahve galactose circulating in their blood.  the galactose apparently is harmful to the unfertilized eggs, which must coninue to develop before ovulation. Should you restrict milk products? If you have unexplained infertility or cycle irregularities, especially sccondary infertilty in your thirties, idealy you could have you blood tested for the present of galactose.  A negative test after drinking milk would conclusively show that ths is not your problem.  If you cannot find a physician willing to test your blood, in addition to the other nutritional suggestions here, you may wish to avoid all milk products except or butter for six to nine months, charting your cycles so that you canobserve any improvement in mucus and temperature patterns. Butter is purely fat and is an essential fatty acid of sorts – important to note that many women believe it is best to drink skim or 1% milk.  This is not true because that makes it more milk, less fat and the fat is not what people have...
