Alcohol and making babies – too many false alarms?

Alcohol exposure in pregnancy carries risks, sure. It has been known for decades that alcohol use while trying to conceive and later in pregnancy can lead to a variety of effects on physical, mental and behavioral development of babies. However, how much alcohol at what time of pregnancy causes which defects in babies is currently still mostly unknown. Even less evidence is available on potential harm of alcohol during the time before conception, and it looks pretty certain that there […]

Fertility bloodwork: 7 hormones which are most important for fertility

This happens to me very often: a woman writes to me (here is how you can do that if you have a question) and tells me all about her fertility journey. Then I say: all right, but could you please send me your recent bloodwork?

These mistakes which women make in the early days of a relationship (and which will cost them a lot in the later stages) are what I would like to address in this post. One would think that something that women over […]

Diagnosed with low ovarian reserve? A little story about how this blog started.

Getting pregnant always looked like something that happens easily so I’ve spent decades believing that and doing everything possible to make it not happen. When I only think of all the sex I did not enjoy because I was subconsciously busy calculating my fertile days and obsessing about condoms not being safe enough.
