menopause - the gift that keeps on giving

Menopause is the gift that keeps on giving. I just got a call from my doctor's office that my cholesterol has shot throught the roof and I have to go on medication to bring it down.

4 years ago I had great cholesterol and now I am suddenly high risk - and 100 points higher.

I thought that losing 15lbs (yea!) would help bring my number down, but clearly menopause trumps weight loss.

I joined the Junoverse this weekend - and so should you. I don't want to ruin the movie so I won't provide any personal commentary on the characters, but it is an interesting movie for infertiles.

Fat, Carbs and the Science of Conception

Ok, I am a little behind given that this article came out last month. I discovered this article while receiving a yummy pedicure at my favorite Vietnamese nail place.

Given that I have not ovulated in 17 months I assume I am a lost cause and no diet is going to resurrect what damaged DNA I may have left.
