About impatientwoman

I'm a psychology professor/researcher and mom of three. When I was trying to get pregnant, I read everything I could find -- and was surprised to find how much advice on fertility was wrong, according to the medical research. Or it was weird, like the statistics on over-35 fertility based on birth records from 17th century France (really!) Plus so many fertility books were boring, or written by men, or written by boring men. That's why I wrote The Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant.

  1. muna says:

    Is it possible to be pregnant with the first child when fsh is 15 or egg count is low and what do I need to take to boost

  2. My understanding of the research is that an FSH of 15 and lower egg count is OK, especially for natural conception (not IVF). In the book, I discuss several supplements that may help with these issues.
