How to Determine Your Most Fertile Days

Apr 30, 2015 | Fertility Care
Are you ready to get started on your conception journey? It can be fun and trying at the same time. But one thing that will most definitely help keep things on track is for you to determine the most fertile days of your cycle. This will help immensely, and it may even shorten the amount of time it takes for you to become pregnant. So, without further ado, here is how you can determine when you are most fertile: 1. Chart Basal Body Temperature Basal body temperature (BBT) is your temperature at rest, after at least three hours of uninterrupted sleep. Usually a women’s BBT rises by 0.4 to 0.8 degrees Fahrenheit after ovulation and will stay risen for at least three days in a row. To chart your basal body temperature, use a digital thermometer, which can read to 2 decimal places and take your temperature reading as soon as you awaken in the morning, before sitting up.

The link between BPA exposure and infertility isn't new.  Higher levels of BPA in women have been linked to fertility issues including ovarian aging. Higher levels of BPA in  men has been seen in men with sperm issues. This recent mouse study shows that BPA exposure can possibly affect fertility for 3 generations. Please do what you can to avoid BPA exposure.  Here are some tips: Avoid using polycarbonate plastic bottles. Breastfeed your baby to avoid exposure to toxins in the lining of infant-formula cans.

Glass is a better choice than even BPA-free plastic, as research shows even BPA-free plastic can still leach chemicals with estrogenic activity into your food. Minimize your use of canned foods, including soda in cans. If there’s an option, choose glass jars over plastic containers for your food products (juice, vegetables, beans, etc.). Choose glass baby bottles instead of plastic. Avoid plastic toys...
