Healthy Ovulation = A Healthy + Energized Life

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… ovulation isn’t only about making babies! 🤪

Contrary to popular belief, not all women ovulate on “day 14.” Which most of your ovulation apps are predicting for you.

This is why we all have cycles that vary in length! Ovulating anywhere between cycle days 12 – 21 can be in the world of normal.

The goal here it to make sure you actually ARE ovulating on a regular and consistent basis.

But why does it matter?

For one, ovulation means that your hormones are reaching peak levels. While you can still be struggling with hormone imbalances — we at least know that your pituitary and ovary communication is flowing!

Without ovulation, your body will not produce adequate levels of progesterone. This is HUGE because progesterone balances the affects of estrogen in the body.

When we have too much estrogen in comparison to progesterone in the body, we feel like sh*t.

Mood swings, heavy periods, cramping, bloating, anxiety, headaches… you get the idea.

Not to mention if you do decide that you want to conceive, we don’t you to play catch up. Too often, I see the concern of ovulation and healthy periods ignored for YEARS until the moment conception is mentioned.

That isn’t fair for so many reasons.

SO where are a few *simple* ovulation tips you can focus on?

✨ Check-in with your emotional AND physical stressors. Stress affects ovulation more than anything.
✨Eat enough healthy fats
✨ Do NOT restrict your carbs!
✨ Check-in with your exercise routine. Are you over exhausting your body?

And of course — if you’re looking for more personalized help, I got you 😉

The 6-week group program starts NEXT Tuesday and we dive into ALL of this👏🏼👏🏼
