The only sure way is to determine genetically is via insemination etc..Otherwise, your chance is just about 50/50 naturally--same as flipping a coin for head or tail. Good luck. ...Read more

Docs, what's an affective natural birth control besides pills or artificial tools like diaphragms, implants, condoms )?

There isn't: In spite of what anybody else may tell you, there's no reliable "natural" birth control. To risk an unwanted pregnancy is to gamble, for no reason, with three lives. "Natural" isn't better -- if for some reason someone is trying to sell you "natural healing", go to an old graveyard and see how long people used to live. Be discerning and don't risk becoming an unwanted parent. ...Read more

I'm on birth control but want to start a herbal detox. Will emmenagogue herbs such as nettle and peppermint affect my birth control? Thank you

You do not need detox, no body does. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off depo do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable. ...Read more
