BBL 035: What to Do When You’re Not Getting Pregnant

Hoping for a baby but seeing negative pregnancy tests month after month? Here's what to do when baby-making isn't going as smoothly as you'd hoped.

In this episode I cover:

  • Why you should chart your cycle
  • What calorie level you need to meet to conceive
  • Managing stress levels (yes, it's cliche!)
  • Where do essential oils fit into TTC?
  • Should you have any testing done? When should you have it?
  • What is a luteal phase defect (and what do you do if you have one?)
  • When you should consider a low carb fertility diet
  • How to handle PCOS and Endometriosis
  • Why you should avoid soy while TTC – especially if you're having trouble conceiving
