    Progesterone Best Practices?

    I've got a bottle of Progest-E in my cart, and before I click buy, I want to clear up some uncertainties I have about progesterone. For some reason I'm a little nervous to use it? 24/F | 5ft.3" | 120 lbs | Eating pretty peaty, while maintaining food freedom / having grace with myself if I eat a...

    Vitamin D improves ovarian reserves in women with infertility

    Diminished ovarian reserves are one of the major causes of female infertility. It used to be a problem mostly in women over 45 who were trying to get pregnant, however, it has now become a common finding even in 30+ year-old females. Estrogen is known to play a big role, and some studies have...

    Help with Weightloss

    Hello! I am a 20-year-old female that has been learning and trying slowly to understand how to help my metabolism. Right now my weight is 203lbs and my height is 5'10.

    Effects of nofap on women?

    I’m a young female and I have sex once or twice a week, but I stopped masturbation and sometimes even withhold my orgasms. I am aware that the negative hormonal effects of masturbation is worse in men, but I am curious the effect it has on women. I have noticed that my body hair grows slower...

    How Much Dietary Fat Do You Actually Need For Hormones?

    I haven't found a good thread on this, but read a few posts of people saying their T skyrockets on a low-fat diet, which goes against what you hear in a lot of communities, being that fat is a very important precursor for hormones. I myself am experiencing with a lower-fat diet at the moment to...

    Almost 40% Of Military Women (and Even More Military Males) Are Infertile

    I think this study should dispel some of the myths about what being "fit" really means, and that being truly healthy or "fit" often are quite divergent paths. Infertility is actually one of the most reliable indicators of poor systemic health and predictor of future chronic disease (in both...

    Niacinamide May Restore Female Fertility In Old Age

    The mainstream medical dogma is that after the onset of menopause, female reproductive potential is essentially zero. I posted a thread recently that challenged that dogma and demonstrated that infertility is essentially an energetic dysfunction process and can be reversed with exposure to red...

    Estrogen Is A Stress Hormone, It Can Both Trigger And Potentiate The Effects Of Stress

    I was quite surprised to see this article in WebMD - a website that is bastion of mainstream medicine. It regularly promotes dogmas related serotonin, estrogen, oxytocin, growth hormone, etc and the myriad of "benefits" these substances bestow upon humans. However, a bit of truth apparently...

    Fertility Depends On Metabollism (ATP), Not Age

    As many of you know, there are 2 fundamental dogmas in reproductive medicine. One is that every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and those cannot be replenished. The second one is that there is a biological fertility clock in every woman that inexorably ticks, and if the female does not...

    Antidepressants (SSRI) Make Females Unattractive, Provoke Male Aggression

    ...or at least it does so in birds. The news about the pure evil that SSRI drugs are just keep on coming. There is already evidence that they pretty much zombify the person taking them and deprive that person of any semblance of humanity. SSRI Drugs Linked To At Least 28 Murders, Including Mass...

    Strong Androgens (DHT) As Treatment For CVD, Obesity And Metabolic Syndrome

    The study used DHT as the active drug but since the positive effects were due to androgen receptor agonism, any other strong androgen agonist should do. I think the lack of estrogenicity also contributed to the benefits of DHT observed in this study, so this would explain the mixed results with...

    Physical Stress Or Night-shift Work Decrease Female Fertility

    The study looked at women who performed physically demanding work but it also applies to those to regularly exercise as the exertion load defined in this study can easily be replicated by running a few miles 2-3 times a week, doing HIIT, or even hitting the gym a few times a week and working...

    Cancer Deaths In Females Will Rise By 60% In The Next Two Decades

    So much for winning the war on cancer. I already posted another link (again from CNN) that cancer is now the leading cause of death in USA, surpassing the previous top killer CVD. Women's cancer deaths expected to rise 60% by 2030 - CNN.com "...The number of women dying worldwide from cancer...

    Fertility Problems In Women Could Be Due To High Cortisol

    Cortisol is highly antagonistic to progesterone - i.e. it both directly inhibits synthesis of progesterone and activates aromatase, so elevated cortisol results both in deficiency of progesterone and excess of estrogen. This human study found that women who had issues getting pregnant had...

    Stress Increases Estrogen In Females And Impairs Cognitive Function

    I already posted several studies showing that stress elevates estrogen in males. So much for estrogen being a beneficial female hormone. Acute stress persistently enhances estrogen levels in the female rat. - PubMed - NCBI "...Here we tested whether exposure to either tailshock or swim stress...

    Depression May Be Caused By Estrogen In Females And Cortisol In Males

    A very interesting study, which points to a potential difference in the depression etiology between the sexes. However, given that cortisol is one of the strong activators of the aromatase enzyme, high cortisol also means high estrogen in males. The study openly discusses the effect of stress on...
