Stay Fertile Longer
For a mother, "Mother Nature" seems like a real prankster.
Over the last century, life expectancy for women has increased by 30 years. And many of us are using that extra time to attain advanced degrees, establish ourselves in our careers, start up businesses, even run for political office. Yet while we've put marriage and family on hold to pursue other dreams, we are also steadily losing eggs-- and with each lost egg goes an opportunity to have a baby.
Sounds grim? It doesn't have to. The truth is, by working with Mother Nature, instead of against her, there are scores of things you can do-- starting today-- to preserve and protect your fertility.
It's a proven fact: Healthy women are fertile women. And within these pages, you'll find a comprehensive program to boost your health and optimize your fertility. Based on the best, most current advice from the top fertility experts in both conventional and alternative medicine, Stay Fertile Longer gives you all the information you need, whether you're ready to start a family today, 5 years from now, or even in the next decade! Best of all, you'll increase your odds for conceiving quickly and easily-- and without the need for expensive high-tech treatments such as in vitro fertilization.
If you're ready to start a family today, simply follow the get-pregnant-now plan in part 3. There's a frank discussion of the subtleties of lovemaking to increase conception odds, a detailed program for understanding your cycle and charting your peak fertile days each month, and even a primer on the prenatal tests you'll want to get at your next doctor visit.
What if you and your partner have tried to get pregnant for 6 months or more without success? Stay Fertile Longer has an array of natural options for overcoming fertility obstacles such as hormone imbalances or a compromised reproductive system. You'll be introduced to healing methods including massage, yoga, and herbal remedies. And in the event that you do need to resort to high-tech options, these natural remedies will complement fertility medications and assisted reproduction techniques, boosting your odds for success.
Whether you want to become a mother today or "someday," this book is for you.
