One of the best things we can do for the future generation and our daughters is to bring back the idea that our cycles are sacred and teach our daughters how to track and become more in tune with their bodies.
If we started honoring our cycles, eating a traditional diet from day one and did not go on birth control to mask our symptoms or get rid of our periods all together we would all be in a different state of health to this day. Birth control is a carcinogen and it’s being handed out like candy when we have a free, easy method we can use that works with our bodies, not against them.
The three primary signs of ovulation:
BASAL BODY TEMP
Take your temperature every morning upon waking in bed the second you wake up. You will notice a shift in your waking temperature a couple days before ovulation this confirms the egg has been released. Your temps will be heightened after ovulation until your period, this confirms you are producing progesterone, have ovulated and are now in the clear.
• After menstruation: dry
• Approaching ovulation: wet + copious
• Ovulation: egg white, stretchy, lubricative + clear
• Peak fertility day = last day of egg white cervical fluid
• Dryer = Less fertile, Wetter = More fertile
• Check your cervix a few days prior to ovulation and after ovulation.
• Not fertile = it will feel like a firm round dimple
• Fertile = it will feel softer, higher and open
Tips for getting started naturally tracking your cycles:
+ Keep a log of your markers everyday in an app
+ Check your temps and mucus everyday! Ovulation strips might be helpful at first.
+ Give yourself 3-6 months and use other barrier methods during this time of learning.
+ Get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I highly suggest every mom gift their daughter this book!
Let’s get back nature ladies, our bodies are not mistakes. The lives we are living and the lack of knowledge we are given about our unique female physiology is the mistake.
