Fertility Issues & Erectile Dysfunction

Stress and Infertility

If you have been trying to get pregnant, chances are that you have heard, "just relax and you'll get pregnant." Stress can have a dramatic impact on one's reproductive life. Many women with infertility will share with me that they do not feel like "real women" and are not members of the club who have experienced pregnancy and childbirth.

Lubricants and Trying to Conceive

QUESTION

Dear Sexperts,
My wife and I are trying to conceive. She doesn't lubricate naturally from foreplay such as touching her vagina or sucking her nipples. We even watch porn together. I have to perform oral sex to her which she enjoys very much.

The problem is that we cannot use saliva because germs in the saliva can kill the sperms. We also cannot use KY lubricant since it also kills the sperms. We used baby oil (it was suggested in a book) as lubricant. We do not feel anything when we have intercourse because the baby oil is so slippery. What can we do?

Your "Real" Reproductive Age

The beauty of STRAW is that you can get a sense of what stage you are in based on your menstrual patterns, symptoms, and the overall characteristics of a stage, rather than just a certain hormone range or chronological age. Looking at the whole picture makes it clearer that reproductive capacity is unique for each individual.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium lining of the uterus attaches itself to other organs outside of the uterus. According to the Endometriosis Research Center, this disease affects more than 7 million women in the US and is the leading cause of female infertility, chronic pelvic pain and gynecologic surgeries. How is it diagnosed and treated?
