A Cancer Survivor’s Guide on How to Get Pregnant – Part II
The niggling query ‘how to get pregnant’ is no more a bother as greater choices for fertility preservation now exist following cancer therapy.

Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM has its own fascinating take on menses and maternity. Here is a complete elucidation of the menstrual cycle according to the TCM perspective. Week 3-Fertilization and Embedding Subsequent to ovulation, the FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) levels instantaneously plummet, and follicle producing the egg would become the corpus luteum (cyst-like formation) and would need to last for a minimal of ten days which would allow ample time for embedding in case egg fertilization has occurred. TCM Approach Females tend to be quite warm during the luteal period and TCM  [...]

Deciphering Fertile Days to Conceive

Deciphering Fertile Days to Conceive
The most fertile days to conceive are during a woman’s ovulation period in the monthly period cycle. During this period a rise in the luteinizing hormone (LH) levels precedes release of an ovum from the follicles into the uterus after its maturation. The ovum or egg is then all set to undergo fertilization and would stay in the uterus for around twelve hours subsequent to which it would undergo degeneration. The ideal means of ascertaining fertile days to conceive is being alert to bodily changes and deciphering the physical indications of ovulation so that sexual intercourse could be timed according to the most favourable  [...]
