Not Ovulating? Changing Your Diet May Be The Answer.

By: Amara Lindenmayer

Ovulatory infertility is the leading cause of infertility, causing at least 30% of cases. Having an anovulatory cycle (a menstrual cycle where your body doesn’t release an egg) is actually very common, about one-third of regular cycles are anovulatory! While this isn’t always a problem, it does make it harder if you are trying to conceive.

If you’re using OvuSense to track your cycles and notice that your charts are often looking anovulatory, or if you’ve got irregular cycles, polycystic ovarian syndrome or luteal phase defect, then changing your diet to optimise ovulation may be the answer.

Guest Blog: What information are you getting about your fertility?

By: Kat Stevens

We know that information is power but it can also be truly overwhelming, and this is so evident when we start to investigate a health issue— and specifically fertility. We head over to Google, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook and there is a wealth of information. Too much information? The wrong information? Conflicting or confusing information? This can in itself cause a stress response. You are in effect facing a tiger (worry, fear). You just want to know why you are not getting pregnant and what you can do about it.

With a background in nursing and a science degree, I am a strong believer in facts and have a questioning mind. As a Natural Fertility Therapist addressing the physical, neuro-physical, and emotional, I am a strong believer in all things being possible.

While the spread of the Coronavirus is seemingly slowing across the world, there is still uncertainty among those trying to conceive and those currently pregnant about what the virus will mean for them.

In this blog, we will share resources, studies, and everything that we know about COVID-19 and pregnancy, in an effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible during these uncertain times. While much of the research is still new or ongoing, we believe it’s always important to know and share the facts as they come in. However, be sure to continue your own research on the topic and listen to the experts as more information comes to light.

After Numerous Products “Not tested on women with PCOS,” Samantha Found Her Solution

If you’re struggling with PCOS, it can be hard enough to try and figure out what is going on with your body on your own or with your doctor. This confusion is only amplified when trying to get pregnant.
