Question: After testing revealed low progesterone level (8.1), the doctor said I probably didn't ovulate (although I might have) the month of the test. All other pertinent tests/levels were normal. My cycles are very regular and I get all of the "symptoms" to indicate ovulation. Doctor wants me to start Clomid, but I'm researching all other options before taking that step, as I really don't want to have to go that route. I'm going to start using an OPK instead of just relying on the calendar and physical symptoms to indicate ovulation. I've also read an in depth article on the Fertility Diet. I already have a fairly healthy diet, but am intrigued on the suggestion of switching to full-fat dairy instead of low-fat or fat free. Does anyone have any experience with The Fertility Diet? They make some interesting arguments about why fat free and low fat dairy can contribute to ovulatory dysfunction. Any other suggestions to try before going the Clomid route?

I also have ovulation problems. Sometimes my ovulation is late (up to cd 44), sometimes it's weak (short luteal phase). So what I have been trying to do is balance my hormones by eating as healthily as I can, taking multivitamins and walking at least half an hour every evening.. I'm not sure how this cycle is going to pan out, but I've read other women saying that when they lost weight/exercised/ate healthily their ovulation was more regular and many of them give credit to diet and/or exercise for the conception. I think the reason why full fat is better than low fat is because the fat negates the effects of the hormones in the dairy. I haven't implemented the foods in the fertility diet, but what I have been doing is cutting out sweet things (biscuits, cake etc). Remember, our bodies were made to do this, we just have to tweak around until we find the right formula. Good luck.

Bridget Originally Answered: Is Caregiving experience counted as a health care field experience? or a hospitality/service type experience?
Based on the additional details you Absolutely do have the experience to work in health care. This is what a Home Health aid does on a daiy basis. You could also use this for a CNA or LPN job experience. You would write all the duties you performed in the care taking of this person and the responsibilities you had.

yes, I think so but depending on what kind of care-giving experience have you done before and what kind of experience they ask for job

Funny you should ask. I just asked a question in the pregnancy section polling pregnant women whether they ate low fat or full fat dairy. Here's a link to the answers I've gotten so far: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... For the past 2 months I've done the full fat thing. And in addition to gaining 3 or 4 pounds, it kinda screwed my cycle up. I don't know if the dairy was exclusively to blame, but for the first time in 2 years, my cycle length changed. I'm one of those people whose cycle is like clockwork. Every cycle for the last couple of years has been 25 days exactly. Last cycle, it was only 22 days. Again, I can't for sure blame the full fat dairy, but it's the only thing I had done differently. I'm normally a fat-free milk, lowfat yogurt, and full fat cheese eater. The 2 months of mostly full fat didn't help me to conceive, and in fact, shortened up my cycle. So, in theory, it probably does affect people. But in my case, I saw the opposite effect. Sorry for the long answer. Good luck!! Oh, and definitely do bbt charting. I think I have low progesterone too, but I ovulate every month. I can tell because I do bbt charting.

Hi! Have you ever heard of ‘Fat Loss 4 Idiots’ diet program? It's one of the most sellable e-books ever written that talks about losing fat easily and quickly. If you wish, you can check it all out, there’s a link to a great blog in my source. So, what is in it? Generally, the Fat Loss for Idiots is a guide to losing weight and fat as the name implies. In the book, you will be able to read the rules involved in weight loss. These rules, also known as "10 Idiot Proof Rules of Weight Loss" are easy to understand and follow as they are stated in the simplest terms. Another thing that the e-book contains is the diet generator. The book will give you meal plans that will last you for 11 days. So for each day, the book has a menu for you to follow. What does it promise? Fat Loss for Idiots promises a lot of things. For the most part, it promises to make you really lose weight. To be specific, the ebook is able to make you lose 9 pounds every eleven days. Another big promise the ebook gives is that it can make you lose weight using a healthy meal plan. Many weight lose plans make you lose weight by skipping and scrimping on some things that your body needs such as fat. With the ebook, you can be sure that you won't be having any of this. As a matter of fact, it will give you a menu of foods that are complete of the nutrients that your body needs. With this, you can be sure that even if you are losing weight, you are also well nourished. Another thing that the ebook promises is that it makes room for those who are on a vegetarian diet. Unlike other weight loss guides that specifically tell you certain things such as forcing you to eat meat, the Fat Loss for Idiots respects your diet preferences. With this, anybody can take part of the program. The best weight control diet allows you to eat the foods that you would normally eat, have in your refrigerator and cabinets. By timing when you eat certain foods, how many times a day you eat them, and balancing the types of food, your metabolism will burn what you take in and then some, because it knows you will be feeding it again shortly, instead of starving. Check out my source – there’s a blog all about this diet with tons of info. Hope it works for you! Good luck!
