How to Increase Fertility Naturally BEXLIFE- Timbumburi, New South Wales
Rebekah: Hey guys. It's Bex here and I amhere with the lovely Alisa Vitti in her apartment in New York City, surrounded by baby things. Alisa: Yes. Rebekah: The last time you were on Bex Life,you were not pregnant. I was not pregnant and we were talking about birth control. Alisa: Right, and why we should all get offof it. Rebekah: We didn't take it and look whathappened to us. Alisa: Well, this was by planning, yes.
Rebekah: And this was by planning too. Alisa: That's right. Rebekah: I'm really excited because I'm36 and you're 37. Alisa: And look at how young and gorgeouswe look. Rebekah: I know. We are gorgeous! Alisa: Gorgeous. Rebekah: Healthy, vibrant. We are of advancedmaternal age. I can hardly get the words out. Alisa: Technically speaking, yes.
Rebekah: It's so gross. I hate â€“ I don'teven like saying that. Alisa: I know, I know. Rebekah: We only advanced in intellect andbeauty, really. Alisa: Amen. Love it. Love it! Rebekah: But a lot of our girlfriends arehaving babies, having their first babies. This is your first. This is my fifth. I'mnot the norm and they're having trouble and girlfriends our age and girlfriends youngerthan us and their men. Alisa: Yes.
Rebekah: What's going on? Alisa: I think it's a growing and somewhatfor whatever reason silent epidemic, this rise in infertility, both male and femaleinfertility, and what is termed idiopathic meaning no known cause. So you go. You haveyour checkup. Everything looks normal. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to makethe baby. But you can't. In my ten plus years now of working with couplesand individuals on their fertility, there are three reasons that I see that are kindof at the core of why people are not able to have that reproductive capacity and thatfertile window be as big and wide as it should
be, right? Because you're really â€“ the whole reasonby the way why the pill was such a good thing back 50 years ago, 60 years ago when it cameout was because women were having their eighth, ninth baby at 45 because there was no wayto prevent additional pregnancies and they were fertile, perfectly fertile well intotheir 40s. Now we have women struggling in their midto late 20s. So what has changed? Here's what I think has changed. One, we're beingexposed to way more chemicals than we ever have been before.
The statistic that I have just read aboutis that your grandparents' generation was exposed to chemicals over the course of theirlifetime that you are exposed to in a 30day period. You're exposed to more chemicalsin 30 days than they were their entire lives. Rebekah: That's so scary. Alisa: And these chemicals of course are endocrinedisruptive which means they're really messing with your fertility. So that's reason numberone. Reason number two is that we are micronutrientdeficient in ways that we just are not realizing. We're eating like different kinds of diets.We're cutting out big macronutrients. We're
Signs You Are Pregnant After a Miscarriage
What are the signs you are pregnant aftera miscarriage? You've missed your period after having one,so you cannot blame its absence on the stress. Or you can blame it on the hormones that mayhave caused the miscarriage in the first place. There's a reason they sell ovulation andpregnancy tests in bulk packs. The only thing more stressful than wantinga baby after you lost one is getting a no answer day after day. So do not do a test, and wait for the obvioussecond trimester indicators. I want to know if I'm pregnant before Ifeel the baby move, so I can try to make sure
I stay pregnant. If you have an uncontrolled thyroid problemor another serious health problem, it can interfere with ovulation, your period andpregnancy. I do not think I miscarried because my thyroidwas too high or too low with some hormone. Good, because you need to talk to the immediately if you were newly pregnant to minimize the risk to the baby. The same is true if I was diabetic, takingseizure drugs or something else. If you are trying to get pregnant after amiscarriage, you could schedule regular 's
visits to do the blood tests, so you knowas soon as your body knows it is pregnant. That's only really necessary if I was onmedication that has to be altered as soon as we know I'm pregnant. Your could confirm you were pregnantwith an ultrasound, though you'd have to talk to the OBGYN about regular checks todetermine a pregnancy sooner than most pregnancy tests. It is cheaper to buy the digital early pregnancytests in bulk than check in with a medical professional that often.
I'd actually say not to worry about it toomuch, since sixty to seventy percent of women who get pregnant after a miscarriage haveno major problems the next time. That means around one in three do not. If you get pregnant too soon after havinga prior child, the odds of miscarriage and preterm birth are higher because the bodyhas not recovered yet. This was a second trimester miscarriage, nothaving a preemie. If you miscarried due to a health problemlike an infection or health problem, the odds of miscarrying again are high until you'rehealthy. If it is a blood type issue or genetic,
the odds of a repeat occurrence are higher. At which point, the would be checkingme periodically to see if I'm pregnant to try to intervene.
