The Elephant in the Room

If you could be a fly on the wall in bedrooms throughout the world, you’d be stunned to see how many women fake orgasms, even with men they’ve been married to for decades. Are women really that deceitful? Think again. Actually, the answer virtually always comes down to our anatomy, and how we were designed. In a word, [...]

File this under “YUCK”

When I was growing up during the Flower-Child 60s, let’s just say that sanitary pads were a tad different than they are today. For starters, they had long thin gauze tails on each end that we ever-so- delicately threaded through a sanitary belt! Yup, a sexy little elastic number that we wore around our waists and hoped to God [...]

Can a Woman Get Pregnant During Her Period?

There are a certain number of questions that seem to get recycled over and over again, either amongst friends or on the internet. One that seems to get a lot traction is the issue of whether or not a woman can get pregnant while menstruating. As with so many things in life, the explanation is not that [...]

Learning to Self-Advocate (Part 2)

I’m not going to lie. My first year in Seattle over 30 years ago was hell. I arrived not knowing a soul, with no job and no prospects, and oh yeah, no housing or transportation. But I somehow convinced myself that my passion for disseminating the incredible value of the Fertility Awareness Method would be enough to sustain me. [...]

Learning to Self-Advocate, Not to be Confused with Self-Medicate! (Part 1)

Over 30 years ago, I had a slight scare when some of the cells on my cervix came back suspicious in a routine pap test. So I had cryotherapy, in which my abnormal cervical cells were destroyed by freezing with liquid carbon dioxide. The timing of that procedure was a tad inconvenient, though, because a few days later, I [...]

Fertile Memories from an Old Fuzzy Picture

When I was 25 years old, I spent an incredible year volunteering on a kibbutz in Israel. You can imagine that back then fertility was the furthest thing from my mind. Instead, I would wake up before dawn, drag myself out of bed and walk in the freezing cold across the kibbutz to the cafeteria, where the only people [...]

What Percent of A Woman’s Cycle is Fertile?

You would think that this would be a fairly straightforward question, right? In reality, it’s not that simple. And to add more intrigue, the answer depends on whether you are trying to get pregnant or avoid pregnancy. What? While it’s true that the basic answer is that most women are fertile for only a few days per cycle, there [...]

A Menstrual Puzzle Finally Clarified!

Can a woman get pregnant if she isn’t menstruating? Or another way of putting it is: Can a woman assume she doesn’t need to use birth control because she isn’t having periods? Actually, the answer is not as intuitive as you’d think. On the surface, any self-respecting educated person might think “Of course she can’t get pregnant if [...]

A Suspicious Russian Tale of a Different Kind

When my book was first released in 1995, email was barely a blip on the horizon, so the only feedback I initially got came in the form of handwritten letters overflowing my stuffed PO Box at the local post office. One of the letters I received had a Russian return address. It was from one of my readers [...]
