And Other Q & A on Fertility…
1. What is the process of conception fertility?
Conception occurs after the ovary releases an egg. This normally happens about the middle of the cycle. In order for sperm to be present, you must have had intercourse within the previous several days. The egg and sperm combine in the fallopian tube – thus conception occurs. The fertilized egg floats down the fallopian tube and within 5 to 7 days makes its way to the uterus where it implants into the uterine wall. By the time you miss your period, a home pregnancy test will reveal a positive and you will know you´re pregnant.
2. I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now and it is still not happened, can you give me any tips on how to conceive?

3. Is it safe to take Paxil CR (20 mg SID) during pregnancy?
I personally wouldn’t take it, however discuss it with your physician. Paxil is a fairly new drug and I’d be very cautious if taking it during pregnancy. Any prescriptions can be classified as dangerous during pregnancy to both you and your baby. Consider emailing us for tips on finding natural alternatives that will benefit both mother and baby.
4. Is it possible to have pretty regular periods (last few have been 27-29 days), but not ovulate? I have been using ovulation predictor kits for nearly 2 months, but have never gotten a positive result. Any ideas?
Yes is it. Chart your fertility signs and you can determine if you are indeed ovulating. If you discover you aren’t ovulating, you can do things to help boost your fertility naturally.
5. I have been on Depo Provera and have not menstruated since. I missed my last dose 4 weeks ago and am worried I might fall pregnant. I still don’t see my periods. How can I be sure?
Depo Provera really messes up the reproductive cycle. I´d be surprised if you become pregnant soon. Usually it causes infertility that can last up to 18 months.
Take a pregnancy test every week just to be sure.
