Why You Must Ask "Why" When it Comes to Mammography and Other Medical Procedures

Do mammograms prevent breast cancer deaths or are they an unnecessary, potentially damaging procedure? It's our responsibility to take matters into our own hands, to become educated and to make wiser decisions about our health and well-being. Unfortunately, arriving to the right decision isn't always easy.

When to have sex to acheive pregnancy

My husband and I had sex 3 days in a row during the slippery stage and were very disappointed when AF arrived on Saturday. We thought we did great and hit our target day or "peak day" I am confused once their is a change in the BFP, should we be having sex everyday? I have read that we should be having sex every other day until there is a change, but I can't find anything that says what will make our chances greater at concieving, do we wait til we get slippery? Like I said we did it 3 days in a row during what we believed was slippery and that didn't work. Any advice would be helpful.

Trying to Get Pregnant with Our First

So my husband and I decided we wanted to start trying to conceive. I've been on birth control for 6 years and was a little concerned about the amount of time it would take to get pregnant. I took my last pill of a pack on October 18. I had a period on October 22. I didn't start again until November 24. I started again December 23. How did other women fare when it came to getting pregnant after stopping birth control? From what I've read, it could take up to 3 months for my periods to be regular again but I would like to know what other women have experienced.

Finding Out

After several days of worrying and fear, I took a test on Sunday, December 13, 2009. The test turned positive almost immediately. I knew it would, which was why I waited all weekend before taking the test. I had no other symptoms at all at this time, until the middle of the night on Saturday the 12th. I thought my breasts felt a little full and that's when I pretty much knew.

What Every Woman Ought to Know About Dollar Store Pregnancy Tests

Saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money. 27 dollar-store pregnancy tests were tested and compared the results with the early-response name brands. The dollar store brand was 100% accurate.

Overwhelmed

So I've been reading on a few websites on and off today at work. Mostly about fertility and getting pregnant after you go off the pill. I put 9 books on hold at the library! One for my hubby and one that I'm expecially excited for, "What to Expect Before You're Expecting". I've also been reading all about pregnancy! The blogs, FAQ's, and websites are full of all kinds of information. Some of it breaks my heart to read about these wonderful women who want nothing more than to have a family. It makes me thing of how my mom must have felt. She and my father tried for 10 years to have children.
