Building a family in Tucson is really no different than building a family anywhere else. You might have a healthier environment on your side and that’s a plus; but other than that—trying to get pregnant is pretty much one of those hit or miss kinds of things.
Fertility, Sexual Attraction and Ovulation
There are fertility doctors everywhere you turn. No need to feel down because you might be a conception-challenged couple; just find yourself a fertility doctor! Be prepared however to dish out a substantial amount of cash. If you don’t have that kind of money, NBC’s Today Show recently had a segment that explained the possibilities of loans for the use of paying for fertility treatments. So you know they’re out there somewhere! Ovulation will be a big deal as well if you end up having a hard time conceiving. Ovulation calendars, ovulation predictor kits, ovulation detector kits…all of these are available to today’s ‘wanna-be’ parents who just can’t seem to get in sync with their bodies. And what about the topic of attraction? Well, I want to hope that you’re pretty darned attracted to each other to begin with. But the use of pheromone scent might be able to give your love life the kick it might need to really get things rolling.
What Will They Think of Next?
Women have been using the ‘rhythm method’ for centuries in order NOT to get pregnant. It has been utilized as a method of birth control—though not historically very effective. Many families having had their 2.5 children and deciding that those were enough have used this method only to end up with a little surprise bundle when they least expected (wanted) it. That’s why your little brother is 10 years your junior and 12 years your brother’s junior. Oops. Now, it is far easier to find out just what your body is up to.
So advanced are the methods today that some even profess to have a system whereby you can read up on or purchase a type of ovulation calculator for a boy and another one for a girl. It’s getting to be like a sci-fi movie or something! ‘Selective Breeding!’
