1. Mid-Cycle Spotting – Should You Be Concerned?
Mid-cycle spotting is one of the most asked about fertility concerns women approach us with. The concern is valid. As far as most of us learned growing up, you are only supposed to bleed during your period, not randomly throughout your cycle. I hope to help you understand the different causes of mid-cycle spotting. Learn to recognize what is normal and when it may be a sign that something isn’t quite right, which may warrant a trip to consult with your gynecologist.

2. Thin Lining of the Uterus: Build the Uterine Lining Naturally

Learn how to build and protect a thick, healthy uterine lining naturally.

3. Traditional Vagina Steam for Healthy Fertility
Mayan healers and midwives used bajos, an ancient healing practice. Bajos (ba-hoes) is a Spanish word that translates to Vaginal Steam Bath.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors of the uterus. Uterine fibroids are also known as leiomyomata, myomas or uterine polyps.

7. Improving Uterine Health for Fertility, Conception and Implantation
In our Improve Egg Health Guide, you have learned ways to nourish and support healthy eggs, but did you know it is also just as important to have a healthy uterus for that egg to implant? Many women say that they can get pregnant, “but the egg just won’t stick”. Or, “the doctor says that my uterus is not healthy enough for implantation.” Well, we have compiled a guide to improving your uterine health. Many of these natural remedies may be familiar to you but, after reading this guide, you may look at them in a whole new way.

8. Preparing for Conception Over 40
More women than ever are trying to conceive over the age of 40, that is a fact. In most developed countries the world over, we are finding that women have more freedoms and equalities than past times. There is no denying this is wonderful. This gives us the freedom to focus on career goals, travel, and making our creative dreams a possibility, rather than feeling like we have to have children right away in our 20s. We are no longer as stuck as we once were, but what about that nagging fear of fertility decline as we age?

9. How to Balance Your Hormones After Birth Control
While I feel that it is important to have the freedom to choose whether or not we want to be pregnant during certain times in our lives, the more I hear from women whose cycles have been disrupted from the use of birth control containing synthetic hormones, the more it makes me wonder if there might be a better way. If we could educate ourselves, delve deeper into understanding what they do in our bodies, as well as learn alternative methods of preventing pregnancy that may be more beneficial to long-term health, we might be able to prepare for conception in a healthier way.

10. FSH Levels and Your Fertility
In both men and women, having a balanced level of hormones is essential to proper fertility. FSH, or follicle-stimulating hormone, is a naturally occurring hormone that is made by the pituitary gland in the body.

If the FSH levels are either low or high, it is a clear indicator that something is out of balance within the reproductive system and may be causing issues with the couple being able to conceive. While FSH levels are used to determine if there is an imbalance, low or high FSH is not the direct cause of fertility issues, just a sign that there may be one.
