You may never hear it from your doctor, but if you talk to enough experienced couples about fertility, Robitussin is sure to come up. If taking cough syrup to get pregnant sounds peculiar, there are a few specifics on why it works, its effectiveness, and how to take it for best results.
While some women may seem to get pregnant without even trying, others have trouble conceiving. Like many other physical functions, reproduction requires certain elements to achieve the desired results. Overall health, as well as certain activities may limit your ability to get pregnant. Making changes in your lifestyle, including your sex life, may provide the needed boost to help you conceive. Although some cases of infertility require medical intervention, certain changes you can make at home may increase your chances of conceiving.
Trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant can be the most frustrating and heart-breaking experience you have ever gone through. Don't jump the gun on getting infertility treatment, though, because treatment comes with some risks. The good news is that, as of 2010, infertility treatments are better than ever, with improved results and options, according to "Good Housekeeping" magazine.
If you are having trouble getting pregnant, acupuncture may help you to conceive. Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, dealing with releasing energy blockages in your body. Your acupuncturist may suggest that you also follow a diet for infertility. This involves eating foods that help support your energy flow, making it easier for you to become pregnant.
Hormone birth control methods are convenient for those times you don't want to be pregnant but still want to participate in intercourse with your partner. They quietly and discretely block your body from creating a child. They do come with certain medical risks. However, they most likely do not include certain infertility issues.
Having trouble conceiving can be an emotional roller coaster. According to MayoClinic.com, the male is responsible for infertility in about 20 percent of cases, while both the male and female have fertility problems in an additional 30 to 40 percent of cases. Fortunately, treatments are available that can help improve male fertility.
Birth control pills are a common form of contraception. Many women choose birth control pills because they are an easy method that lets them take a pill and move on with their day. This is great when your schedule is packed and you can't afford to sit and think about whether you have contraception ready to go. That doesn't make it stress-proof though. As life fills with stress and frustration, you may find your birth control suffering.
Trying to conceive is one of life's frustrating and confusing journeys. Even when you feel as educated and armed as possible, the waiting each month to see if maybe this one is the one that stayed put can become burdensome and start to make you question your own knowledge on the topic. You become susceptible to commercials and ads with happy moms promising the method they chose worked. If herbal remedies are tempting you, make sure you do plenty of research before popping a pill. Despite the claims, this can sometimes do as much damage as good while you are trying to conceive.
Last weekend, my family and I went on a short vacation to the beach to unwind and relax. My third and final IVF is rapidly approaching, so it was very necessary for me to take the time to be in the present moment, enjoying the beauty of nature and all of the little treasures life has to offer. I was so happy to take a break from thinking about my infertility treatments, and I was actually able to remain stress free and unburdened during my whole time away. The morning we were to go back home, I sadly said goodbye to the ocean. I realized on my vacation that there were ways I could “take mini-vacations” that would provide temporary stress relief as I navigate another difficult path on my journey.
I am not sure how the question, “When are you guys going to have kids?” or “When are you guys going to have another baby?” became a casual, innocent question to ask. If I knew, I would turn back time to that moment and thwart any attempts to make those questions socially acceptable. As with many things in life, what appears innocent and friendly to some, is actually painful and hurtful to others. It is never okay to ask anyone those two questions or questions like those.
