I used the book, (Ad) Your Fertility Signals: Using Them to Achieve or Avoid Pregnancy Naturally , successfully for many years. Presented in question-and-answer format, one of the most straightforward self-help books on fertility aims to help couples achieve or prevent pregnancy without using contraceptives. It advocates not the outdated rhythm method, but quick, daily examinations of cervical mucus and body temperature to ascertain when the few days of fertility occur. Winstein also covers the practical aspects of sexual abstinence during the fertile period, breastfeeding’s role in fertility, returning to normal cycles after using the pill, and how ovulation occurs. Assuming normal fertility, she yet includes an explanatory, alphabetical list of infertility problems. An accurate, lovingly illustrated handbook that does much to dispel the mystery and imagined difficulty centered around birth control. Further information, readings list, references, glossary, index.
Also I read online that high doses Vitamin C every hour for 24 hours the day after sexual intercourse, condom breakage, rape, or sexual assault can prevent conception or implantation of fertilized egg. Btw, the bible describes a “purity test (a bitter herbal drink) will cause abortion, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).” Also a high fruit diet cleaned my body and fueled my brain to be happy and think clearly and realize I am blissfully demi-sexual (asexual spectrum). Btw, I believe in a woman’s right of choice to control her own body especially in case of rape or sexual assault (1 out of 4 women have been). Also two thirds of all fertilized eggs either do not implant in the uterus or implant but soon “spontaneously abort” when the body determines that the ensuing fetus would be non-viable due to chromosomal deficiencies most likely due to timing of conception and viability of either egg or sperm which naturally deteriorate over time. https://www.sciencealert.com/meta-analysis-finds-majority-of-human-pregnancies-end-in-miscarriage-biorxiv

(Ad) The Hite Report: A National Study of Female Sexuality A reproduction of the classic text, unavailable now for more than a decade, with a new introduction by the author. The Hite Report, first published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. To answer sensitive questions dealing with the most intimate details of women’s sexuality, Hite’s innovation was simple: she asked women, a lot of them, everything–and published the results. One hundred thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were asked what they do and don’t like about sex; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and to name the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives, among many other questions. The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one; and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire.

Here are videos on “Orgasmic Birth” and “How To Have An Ecstatic Birth – Changing the Paradigm”. I cannot say that I experienced ecstatic or orgasmic birth-giving but I did have a relatively easy mostly natural birth-giving in 1989 and was lucky enough to have awesome nurses that helped me kneel to help my labor until the final minutes. After “hard labor” started they gave me a shot of Nubain which helped me feel like the time of resting between contractions lasted 30 minutes instead of 1 minute and I meditated while looking at a painting on the wall of a path in the woods and imagined my dog walking on it. When I breastfed my baby after giving birth it caused contractions which helped shrink my uterus back to normal size like a walnut from grapefruit size within about 12 hours and prevented hemorrhage. My nurse helped me stand up and take a shower an hour after giving birth and I went home with baby the next day. Anyway, I just wanted to give you a different idea of birth than what’s often in movies.
