We prepare for careers and marriage, so we should also be preparing more for pregnancy. My recommendation is that if you are on a hormonal method, consider coming off 18 months to 2 years before you are ready to start trying. Not because its impossible to get pregnant right off the pill, but you don’t know what’s going to happen with your hormones and cycle.
Lisa Hendrickson-Jack is a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner who teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health. In her new book The Fifth Vital Sign, Lisa debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children by recognising the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimisation. She hosts the Fertility Friday Podcast, a weekly radio show devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health.
