Supporting Follicular Genesis with Acupuncture and Self-Care

The egg you release this menstrual cycle has actually been in its final phase of maturation for the past 3 menstrual cycles. That is when the pre-antral follicle stage began; during this time the follicle grows from 0.2 mm to about 20 mm when the follicle is finally mature and the egg is ready for fertilization. Many follicles grow at the same time during the pre-antral stage. The follicles become “antral” once there is a fluid-filled sac which surrounds the egg.

Following up on my previous post about Advanced Maternal Age, I wanted to write about a topic that is closely related. DOR or Diminished Ovarian Reserve is definitely not a desired diagnosis if you’re looking to conceive. It’s important to understand, however, that this diagnosis is not the be-all & end-all of your fertility journey.

Am I running out of time to have a baby? Natural Solutions for Advanced Maternal Age

It’s no secret that women these days are making the decision to conceive much later in their lives than they were, say, 30-40 years ago.

Forever grateful for the chance encounter that day

A chance conversation between my wife and a new mother first brought us to Dr. Pentland. The new mom had a beautiful baby with her, but told us she’d sadly lost her first when five months pregnant. Thereafter, she began seeing Dr. Pentland; the result was sleeping in her arms. At the time, my wife and I were recovering from the shock of our own miscarriage and trying to get pregnant again.
