Questions and Answers
I've read that drinking certain herbal teas can help a woman become fertile. I started drinking a herbal tea called female toner. It has rapsberry leaf, blessed thistle, nettle, licorice root, red cover and other great things in it. I was wondering if anyone has taken anything like that and do it really help? And how often do you drink it?
Hi, I take a fertility tea. It's called FertiliTea!! I ordered mine online. It was made by Amos Grunebaum, MD, and he has a wonderful website about helping conceive
anyway, myne has vitex: stimulates the hormones involved in ovulation and restores female hormonal balance
red raspberry l eaf: (like your tea): which is regarded for its ability to tone the uterus and muscles of the pelvic region.
Green tea: an antioxidant that enhances reproductive health by repairing th edamage that occurs naturally as a result of environmental toxins and aging (i'm only 27 though)
Ladies mantle: a tonic herb that is useful in regulating a woman's monthly cycle. It also exerts a toning effect on the cervic
nettle leaf: contains vitamins and minerals that are critical to good reproductive health.
And peppermint leaf: giving it a delicious flavor and it also serves as a sexual stimulant
anyway: i'm also taking fertility blend for women and my hubby is taking fertility blend for men.
Then i have sex 3 times a week (every other day) to cover my bases, so to speak: meaning, i don't have to worry about when i ovulate, cause' i'm always cover3ed (with sperm inside of me). ]
then my hubby literally picks me up by my feet and i stay like that for like 20 minutes.
I know this is waaay more info than u asked for, but i just thought you're ttc and i wanted to give u as much info as possible.
Have sex three times a week.
Having regular sex is the best way to get pregnant. Couples often try to time everything perfectly for ovulation but do not have sex when they think they are not ovulating. It is true that sex that is not within the time of ovulation will not result in pregnancy. However, because women do not always ovulate when they think they will, having sex three times a week will help to a woman cover her bases, so to speak, and not miss an opportunity to get pregnant.
2. Use an ovulation prediction kit or fertility monitor.
Using an ovulation kit to predict when you are ovulating will improve your chances of getting pregnant. For many women charting or other methods of ovulation prediction are too confusing. Ovulation prediction kits work by reading LH surges prior to ovulation. They are relatively easy to use and are generally accurate for predicting ovulation. Fertility monitors, such as the Clear Blue Easy monitor, are also a worthwhile investment if you would like to get pregnant faster. Fertility monitors are similar to ovulation prediction kits in that they read changes in LH but they also read changes in other hormones and don’t require any guesswork for couples. They are easy to use and will tell you when the best time to get pregnant is.
3. Have sex before ovulation (not after).
Sometimes couples get confused about the best time to have sex in relationship to ovulation. You have a small window of time each month to get pregnant. After a woman ovulates the egg will survive approximately 24 hours. Sperm, on the other hand, will live for up to three to five days. This is why having sex two to three days before ovulation will increase your chances of getting pregnant. Don’t wait until the day you ovulate to have sex. Your partner’s sperm will last longer than your egg and you don’t want to miss an opportunity by waiting.
4. Don’t rely on the Calendar method for predicting ovulation.
A lot of couples have heard to have sex around day fourteen of your cycle. This is based on the calendar method and assumes that you have a regular 28-day cycle and ovulate mid-cycle. Although this is better than just picking an arbitrary day to have sex, it is not a very accurate way to predict when you ovulate. Many women do not ovulate on day fourteen and knowing precisely when you ovulate will help you time intercourse better. Ovulation prediction kits, looking at previous months bbt charts, or watching for body cues will help you to determine when you ovulate.
5. Charting may not be the best way to predict ovulation.
Charting is great for tracking your cycle but it does have disadvantages. By the time you can see ovulation on a bbt chart, you have already ovulated. It is good to chart so you can track your cycles, see if you ovulate the same time each month, and also so you can look back on your cycle and see if you timed things right. But if this is your first cycle trying to get pregnant or if you are not ovulating at the same time each month, an ovulation prediction kit would be more helpful.
6. See a doctor before you start trying to get pregnant.
Make sure you are in good health and have had a regular check up from your OBGYN or medical provider. Untreated infections, sexually transmitted diseases, or poor health can affect your chances of getting pregnant. Its good to see a doctor as well as start taking prenatal vitamins prior to trying to conceive.
7. Don’t smoke, drink alcohol, or abuse drugs when trying to get pregnant.
This may seem like common sense but many women do try to get pregnant while smoking, drinking or using drugs. Smoking, drugs, and alcohol can affect your fertility. It will also affect your unborn child. It is important to stop smoking or using drugs and alcohol before getting pregnant and not wait until you find out you are pregnant.
8. Have enjoyable sex.
Sometimes when couples are trying to conceive, sex becomes a job or function of reproduction and is not as enjoyable. Plan a romantic evening or try something different to spice things up. How you are feeling sexually may factor into your chances of getting pregnant. Some researchers believe that having an orgasm during sex increases your chances of getting pregnant. For women, the spasmic movements of orgasm will help pull the sperm into the uterus and for men a better orgasm may increase the man’s sperm count.
9. Have sex in positions that keep sperm inside the vagina longer.
The missionary position is a good position to use when trying to get pregnant. Avoid positions where the woman is on top. Gravity will allow sperm to leak out with these positions. Also try placing a pillow under your hips to help tilt your pelvis and keep the sperm in longer. Don’t get up right after sex. Try to relax and allow the sperm to stay in the vagina as long as possible.
10. There is no such thing as trying too hard to get pregnant.
Most couples get pregnant within a year of trying. If you have not gotten pregnant within a year consult your doctor for advice.
There's a lubricant called Pre-seed or Pro-seed or something that's supposed to help a lot. I've heard many pregnant women swear by it. And, of course, sex when you're ovulating, though sex outside of those times couldn't hurt either. Other than that, it's just up to your body and his sperm. You can try tracking ovulation, but I wouldn't count that as an easy way to do it.
Will these cuttings root? Three days ago I took six branch cuttings from a sugar maple tree and trimmed them down to a inch long under a lead node. I trimmed all leaves except for two at the top and stuck them in a medium sized pot with miracle grow potting soil and watered them with willow water. I then covered them with a plastic walmart bag. Then someone told me they needed to root in a vase of water like you put flowers in a vase and grow roots that way. So I moved them to a jar with willow water at the same consistency of tea. Will they root like this or should I move them back into dirt?
This is not a good time to be taking cuttings and expecting them to root…. The trees are getting ready to go dormant, not interested in making roots right now…..
"Cuttings of sugar maple can be rooted but may later fail due to poor overwintering survival. Cuttings can be successfully overwintered by forcing the cutting to break bud and produce a flush of new growth immediately after it roots with the use of gibberellic acid (128). Rooting response varies greatly between clones-differences range from 0 to 100 percent, and rooting response tends to be consistent from year to year. Timing the collection of cuttings is critical; those taken in mid-June generally give the best results. A rooting medium consisting of a 1 to 1 mixture of perlite and sphagnum moss, with intermittent misting, has worked well with sugar maple cuttings."
Can green tea pills flush out all the medication in my system that i was taking.
Green Tea is not a blood purifier. To purify your blood and help eliminate toxins and metabolites in the blood use dandelion root, nettle blackberry leaves and peppermint. One teaspoon of each in a pot of boiling water, remove from heat and let steep 30 minutes. Drink 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the evening. After about 3 days it should be helping out a lot. After three weeks of this regimen, take a 3 day break from it and begin again. Continue this until you have achieved the results that you seek.
