Cervical Mucus: Essential for Natural Fertility Let’s talk cervical mucus, shall we? Okay… I know this may seem to be a little on the TMI side of things, but trust me…it is such an important part of natural fertility {for several reasons I might add} and our perfect design as women. Let’s take a look at what cervical mucus is, why it is so important to natural fertility and how to improve it naturally. What Is Cervical Mucus The pill can change the shape of your brain, new study suggests New research suggests that the synthetic steroids delivered by the female contraceptive pill can shrink certain regions of the female brain and could also be altering their function. Neuroscientists from the University of California, Los Angeles in the US took brain scans of 90 women who were either currently using the pill or not, and found that two key brain regions were thinner in pill users - the lateral orbitofrontal cortex and the posterior cingulate cortex. These two regions are involved in emotion regulation, decision-making and reward response, and the researchers believe that their findings could help explain why some women become anxious or depressed when taking the contraceptive pill.

Beautiful children’s book about a trans teddy takes world by storm The new children’s book which explores issues faced by transgender people has garnered international praise. Jessica Walton was inspired to write ‘Introducing Teddy’ after her father, Tina, came out as trans about three-and-half years ago. “When we were growing up Tina was so much fun, she was such an involved, happy, really down to earth dad,” she said.

Inspired By Serial, Teens Create Podcasts As A Final Exam In the months leading up to the final exam, 10th grade teacher Alexa Schlechter struggled. She’s an English teacher — an educator of stories told through the written word. But instead of focusing solely on classic books read in the 10th grade, she and her students at Norwalk High School in Connecticut were immersed in a teenage story about murder, set in the 1990s, detailed in blog posts, communicated in audio: Serial, the hit podcast from the producers of This American Life. After spending months listening to Serial and talking about it as a class, a two-hour sit-down final seemed pointless, irrelevant and an inaccurate gauge of all the learning that had taken place throughout the year. But learning as we know it in schools must be assessed.

The Problem With Men Explaining Things This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. I still don't know why Sallie and I bothered to go to that party in the forest slope above Aspen. The people were all older than us and dull in a distinguished way, old enough that we, at 40ish, passed as the occasion's young ladies. The house was great—if you like Ralph Lauren-style chalets—a rugged luxury cabin at 9,000 feet complete with elk antlers, lots of kilims, and a wood-burning stove. Beautiful Cervix Project This is the cervix of a 24 year old woman with no history of STIs or abnormal Pap smears. She is sexually active and tracks her fertility using the Fertility Awareness Method; she and her husband use condoms during her fertile phase as birth control. This cycle is 25 days long, with ovulation around day 12 or 13. Day 1 First day of bleeding.

Giant Toothy Fish Have Virgin Births, Rewrite Biology Textbooks To the surprise of scientists, giant endangered fish with sawlike snouts in Florida are experiencing virgin births, reproducing without sex. This is the first solid evidence of such asexual reproduction in the wild for any animal with a backbone, scientists added. Asexual reproduction is often seen among invertebrates — that is, animals without backbones. It happens rarely in vertebrates, but instances are increasingly being discovered — only observed to survive in captivity previously. For example, the Komodo dragon, the world's largest living lizard, has given birth via parthenogenesis, in which an unfertilized egg develops to maturity.
