Unraveling the Mystery: How Glands, Hormones, and Cycles Impact Fertility

Know your body – understand your cycles and identify your specific challenges

The menstrual cycle is controlled by hormones produced by the reproductive glands. These hormones regulate the release of an egg from the ovary and the changes in the uterine lining. Understanding the menstrual cycle is crucial for fertility

The reproductive glands play a vital role in regulating a woman’s hormones and menstrual cycle. Understanding the connection between these hormones and the cycle is crucial to improving fertility awareness and making informed decisions about reproductive health. 

I helped a couple many years ago that had been off the pill for about 6 years but only actively trying for about 4… after the first 2 years passed and they hadn’t conceived just by random acts of sex throughout the month they started to question if it was as easy as they had originally thought.

We were at a bbq and Amber mentioned to me that they had been trying, seriously for the past 4 years but it just wasn’t happening for them.

We got to talking and by the end of the day and she let down her guard and I could see the pain in her eyes she said how each month they’d be so hopeful, they’d get excited at the idea that this was going to be the month and when her period arrived it was so disappointing and heartbreaking they had started to question if they were ever going to be able to conceive and if there was something wrong with them.

I had a look though her cycle charts and it became obvious, that their timing was off by a few days each cycle and if they kept doing the same thing month after month they would never conceive…

Pauls sperm analysis was less than ideal so it was a two part problem. 

With some supplements and diet advice, some opks on the shopping list and my guidelines on how to plan the perfect conception attempt; they were all set.

Within a few months his sperm count was back to normal and she was able to identify ovulation and time their conception attempt so that they had a really good chance of success, within 2 cycles they rang me with some exciting news – success!  – A healthy baby boy was born 9 months later. 

It just goes to show a little knowledge really is powerful.
