Did You know Women Can Be Fertile Twice a Month?

It’s true… and it’s all because of the moon.

Most women watch their menstrual cycles and are taught that their prime time to fall pregnant is during mid cycle or biological ovulation.

What they might not know is that the moon can trigger ovulation and bring on fertility at any time during the menstrual cycle including before, after or even during your menstrual period. It all depends on what phase the moon was in when you were born.

The moon has been linked to female fertility for thousands of years. In fact, the ebb and flow of the moon is responsible for the spawning, mating and birthing behaviour of many creatures on our earth. So really, why should we humans be any different?

Intuitively, women have always understood that the moon, their menstrual cycles and fertility are intimately connected. In folklore and ancient traditions the connections between the three are taken as fact.

The Sad Story of the Hysterical Uterus

There has not been a scientifically definitive physiology of female anatomy until quite recently but strange images from its ambiguous history still haunt the common imagination and impact on women’s self image. None is stranger than the female womb.

An anatomical “reality” that persisted in Western medical lore since ancient Greece was that the female uterus becomes displeased and displaced, and wanders through the body, negatively influencing the brain (I kid you not!). “Hysteria” is derived from the Greek word for uterus.

In a fit of fury the female uterus went travelling through the body, causing all manner of emotional disturbances – hence hysteria, hysterical – and hysterectomy.

The mental condition of hysteria afflicted legions of women of all ages throughout the patriarchal centuries, and was considered the most common disease after fever. In menopause, specifically, “the belief was that the failure to mens

Men to the Rescue – How to Save Women From Breast Pain, Cysts, and Cancer

You know how excited men are about women’s breasts. Actually, men are obsessed.

This, of course, makes women obsessed, too. And it causes them to do very strange things to their breasts.

Women pierce them, stuff them, tattoo, push up, and constrict them, compress them, clamp them with underwires, wrap them, suck them out to make them smaller, toxify them with chemicals leaching out of their bras, routinely X-ray them with mammograms to look for tumors, and sometimes agree to surgically remove them to prevent breast cancer.

Women treat their breasts as fashion accessories. Many women even refuse to use their breasts to nurse their babies since this, they fear, will mar their breasts’ visual appeal.
