The Charms of Old-School Charting

But recently, while walking around my lake listening to a podcast, I was fascinated by a young woman who was convinced that she was starting to have seizures when she read.

Two Sides of the Same Menstrual Coin (Part B)

Can a woman get pregnant if she isn’t menstruating? Or another way of asking it is: Can a woman assume she doesn’t need to use birth control because she isn’t having periods? Or can she get pregnant if she is trying to conceive, even if she isn’t having periods? In both cases, the answer is [...]

Preserving Your Future Fertility

If you’ve been following the news lately (and who can really blame you if you haven’t been in this current climate?) you’ve probably noticed that there has been a surge of interest in a relatively new procedure that allows young women to freeze their eggs. But why would women even want to do that? Because [...]

What Does A Boy With A Hammer Have To Do With Fertility?

The conventional wisdom is that a couple should wait to see a doctor until they’ve tried to conceive for a full year. But is that really the best advice? If you’re familiar with my teachings, you already know where I’m going with this. The answer is a resounding NO! For one thing, if a woman [...]
