Ever heard that low AMH levels mean you’ll never get pregnant naturally? Quality over quantity. Always.
In this podcast episode, we’re talking about why AMH levels may be a reliable indicator of your ovarian reserve, but they give no insight into the quality of those remaining eggs.
Ok! I am calling it. It is time we all stop using the word infertility to describe fertility struggles.
I work with and speak with so many women who have been trying to conceive with zero success. But these women are not necessarily “infertile”.
While 1 in 6 couples may struggle to conceive, 1 in 6 couples are NOT infertile.
More often than not when we think about fertility, we immediately start thinking about women. Yes, we are the ones who have menstrual cycles and get pregnant and grow babies, but if it wasn’t for male sperm pregnancy would never be possible. And if a couple is struggling to conceive, it’s about an even 50-50 split about whether it is a male or female cause.
In this episode, we’re talking about what makes up an individual sperm cell; how the male reproductive system works to maximise chances of fertilising a female egg and we’re also talking about sperm count – how this is actually measured, how it’s changed over the past 100 years and some advice for couples who are trying to conceive with potentially low sperm counts.
We all know that ovulation occurs about halfway through your menstrual cycle. Definitely not always on day 14 as we have been led to believe, but somewhere around the middle. Right?
But what if your cycle is 40 days long? Or 50 or 60?
Well, if your cycle is irregular or on the longer side, there’s a good chance your body has attempted to ovulate once or twice before it actually released an egg. And sometimes, it’s just all too hard and it gives up and decides to try again next month.
This is called anovulation, and it happens more commonly than you might think.
If you’ve been listening to me rabbit on about mucus for any length of time now, then you would know that I see it as the number one indicator of your fertility.
The key to understanding when you are fertile or not fertile relies on you being able to track the changes in your cervical mucus throughout your menstrual cycle. So what you see and feel is everything when it comes to identifying your fertile window.
In this episode, we’re talking about your mucus plug. What the hell is it and why is it so important in determining whether or not you are fertile?
