Fertility tips and myths for women's health
This article kicks off our new 10-part series on women’s health myths. There is a great deal of information available about women’s health issues, from any number of sources, and of course women tend to talk with one another about everything from fertility tips to diets. But the “facts” they share aren’t always accurate.
With this series, we hope to set things straight for women who want to take an active role in promoting and maintaining their own health.
Today, we’ll get some fertility tips from Andraya Huldeen, MD, and dispel three common myths about women’s health.
Myth #1: “If I go off birth control in May, I’ll be pregnant by September.”
It takes the average couple three to six months of “trying” to get pregnant, so there is some basis for this myth, but taking longer than six months doesn’t necessarily mean you have a problem.
