When Multiple Conceptions Go Awry

Anyone who’s ever met me learns fairly quickly that I am a tad obsessed with the fascinating world of unusual multiples — be it twins, triplets, or quads. Suffice it to say, if I weren’t concerned about, oh, I don’t know, the demise of the world through the pandemic and climate change, I’d love nothing [...]

The Charms of Old-School Charting

I’m obsessed with food, cats, and podcasts. Actually, come to think of it, I’m obsessed with a zillion things. 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. But her doctors didn’t think [...]

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 [...]

What’s in a Name?

So let’s be honest — when you first heard the title of my book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility, what was the first thing that came to mind? Understanding the mysteries of your body? Enriching your amazing sexuality? Avoiding pregnancy naturally?  Increasing your chances of conceiving? If you are like virtually all women, you probably [...]

So which is it? Are women fertile just 24 hours or up to week per cycle?

With all the misinformation out there today, it’s amazing anyone is ever able to trust what they hear. And while some facts can be completely wrong (you mean, Abraham Lincoln wasn’t our first president?), the repercussions of the misinformation aren’t that big a deal. But if a couple is trying to avoid a pregnancy, for [...]

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 [...]

One of My Greatest Regrets

It’s only natural that once people pass over the 50-year milestone, they start the requisite soul-searching that accompanies such a birthday. I must be a little delayed in that department, because here I am, in my late 50’s — OK, 61 to be exact — and it’s only now that I’ve started the process. Do I regret all [...]

When the Birds and the Bees Take On A Whole New Meaning

If you’ve ever written a book, you know that it can be one of the most challenging, exasperating, and frustrating experiences. And those are the positive aspects of such an undertaking! So after my first book was released, I thought, why not write another book? Won’t that be fun. So one day well into year two of working [...]

Giving Birth to my … Book

I’m a very private person. Contrary to what you might think after reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I am very much an introvert. So when people ask me what I do, I’m often reluctant to say, for fear that my cover might be blown! But if I am prodded, I typically have no choice [...]
