How Pilling My Kitty Reminded Me Why I don’t Have Children

I’ll be honest. I’m a weenie. Oh sure, I may seem like I have my act together, but if truth be told, there’s a valid reason I chose to not have children. Don’t get me wrong. I love, love, love kids. I love their pudgy little legs when they are just infants, and their Frankenstein [...]

Who Doesn’t Love A Good Gynecological Exam?

I’m not gonna’ lie. I’m not a huge fan of speculums. Years ago when I taught my Fertility Awareness seminars, one of the things I used to do for giggles was to ask everyone in the room to close their eyes as I screwed open a speculum, just to see how long it took to hear the [...]

Three Little Kernels Guaranteed to Put The Kibosh on Political Wrangling This Thanksgiving

Who doesn’t love the wafting aroma of yams, cornbread dressing, and a sage-buttered turkey roasting? Actually, come to think of it, vegetarians don’t. Well maybe the only thing more divisive than what to eat at Thanksgiving is, you guessed it, what you can discuss. And boy will this year’s political scandals challenge even the most [...]

My Obsession with Identicals

Anyone who has spent time with me knows that I am obsessed with identicals—identical twins, triplets, quads, you name it. And while it doesn’t directly relate to fertility, my obsession is serious enough that I’m sure if push came to shove, I could make a pretty compelling case for why every fertility book should have a full chapter devoted [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

Celebrating the first period with ethnic food — the last with a hand-off

When my niece got her first period 10 years ago, I decided that this date was worthy of celebrating every year moving forward. So every single August 28th , I take her to lunch at an ethnic restaurant, figuring that this way, not only do we commemorate that life- changing day, but I share with her a love [...]

What Do Baths Have To Do With Orgasms?

One of the hardest things for some women to admit is that they’ve never had an orgasm, and they often assume that they are the only ones. Actually, a woman’s ability to achieve an orgasm is much more complex than a man’s, and often requires just the right ambience, to say nothing of technique. One of the best [...]
