Did you know that you could actually touch your own cervix to predict ovulation? If you are a true infertile, you have already tried…
When you first met your husband, you were shy about doing Number Two in front of him. Now, you go into your bathroom and try to touch your cervix. You have no shame left. “Honey. Someone’s on the telephone for you.” Your husband shouts while you’re in the bathroom. What can you say? “I’ll call them back. I only have one hand right now.”
A friend recommended I read the book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler claiming that it was “life changing.” I read it and was kind of hoping that the book would make me pregnant. It didn’t. The author gives a detailed account about how to touch your cervix properly:
“As you approach ovulation, your cervix tends to rise, soften and open. It progresses from feeling firm like the tip of your nose (when not fertile) to feeling soft like your lips as you approach ovulation.” Now that sounds like fun! Go ahead stick your hand right up there.
The workplace toilet is not recommended.
