This subject is often one of the first things that must be figured out by LGBTQ couples and single people trying to conceive, but straight couples may also be faced with a decision about where to get donor sperm, if the male partner is struggling with infertility.
Identifying an Anxious Kid
Anxiety can have many forms - in some kids it mostly shows up as anxious thoughts, worrying, or nightmares. For other kids, anxiety may show up in purely physical form, without any anxious thoughts. Instead, these kids might have issues like stomach aches, headaches, ticks and twitches, or even rashes and hives.
Once you recognize the signs of anxiety in your child, you can start to help them and teach them how to help themselves, when anxiety strikes.
Natural Treatments for PCOS
Just in case you missed my last post, What is PCOS... and How Can it Affect Fertility? Here is a quick recap of why polycystic ovarian syndrome prevents ovulation:
It all starts with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). FHS helps the eggs mature and follicles grow till one is mature enough to be released in ovulation. Luteinizing hormone, on the other hand, is what triggers the release of the egg once it’s ready to go.
In people who don’t have PCOS, the ratio of luteinizing hormone (LH) to follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is around 1:1. In PCOS, LH to FSH ratio is closer to 3:1. When that happens, follicles try to mature, but then the relatively high level of LH interrupts them in the middle of their growth and they never end up getting big enough to be released.
PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility in the US. But don't lose hope! For most people PCOS is totally treatable. Read on to find out more...
