Monday, June 9th, 2014

When you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant, you study every food, drink, and supplement before putting it in your body. But do you consider the potential dangers of the window cleaner you use? What about your shampoo or the container you use to take your lunch to work?

7 Tips to Boost Your Chances of Conceiving Naturally

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Getting pregnant seems like it would be easy — so easy that it could happen purely by accident. But for many couples trying to have a baby, actually conceiving turns out to be much more difficult than they realized.

Charting your cycles and determining your “fertility window” is crucial to conceiving naturally. In fact, if you don’t have sex during your fertility window — the relatively small amount of time when having sex can result in pregnancy — your chance of conceiving is zero percent.

In this article, Ethan Lynette explains seven tips to help you boost your chances of conceiving naturally. Read more here: http://parenting.allwomenstalk.com/tips-to-boost-your-chances-of-conceiving-naturally

Monday, October 7th, 2013

bfp-pregnancy-test-strips-16You can never have too many ovulation and pregnancy tests when you’re trying to conceive – but you could quickly deplete your bank account if you’re paying drugstore prices.

Fairhaven Health Introduces World’s Most Intelligent Basal Thermometer!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

As you’re probably well aware, pinpointing when you ovulate each month is crucial when you’re trying to get pregnant. That’s because a woman is only fertile during the few days leading up to – and on – her ovulation date.

So how do you determine when you’ll ovulate? Methods of accomplishing this abound, but one of the most tried and true ones is to track your basal body temperature (BBT), your resting temperature, which is usually a bit lower than your “normal” temperature. The premise behind BBT charting is simple: during ovulation, your progesterone production increases, warming your body for a possible pregnancy. By charting your basal temperature each day, you can see that subtle thermal shift indicating that ovulation did indeed occur.

Basal thermometers are nothing new… they’ve been around for decades. But Fairhaven Health’s new ibasal Thermometer represents a quantum leap in BBT technology for trying to conceive purposes. Not only does it measure your basal temperature for you with extreme accuracy, it also algorithmically interprets that data for you – telling you precisely when ovulation occurred. No guesswork… no squinting at charts trying to spot a trend.
