Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that The Egg Whisperer Podcast would be celebrating 150 episodes! I kicked this show off just over three years ago, and it’s been a total joy getting to share all of my favorite stories and info with all of you.
With 150 episodes, there’s a lot to celebrate. The Egg Whisperer Show has hit #35 on Apple Podcasts under Medicine in the US, #20 in Great Britain, and #18 in Canada.
It’s with a very sincere and heartfelt thanks to each of you that I celebrate this milestone. Thank you for listening, thank you for wanting to learn more about your fertility, thank you for sharing the show with the people you love.
It’s only appropriate that my 150th podcast episode be about Egg Freezing, and the information that I share at an Egg Freezing Party.
Egg Freezing parties are safe and surgery-free gatherings of women (and sometimes men) to learn more about the process of freezing your eggs (or sperm). Beyond that, we talk in general about fertility and how every woman (and man) can take a proactive role in preserving their fertility options.
There is humor. There is honest talk. Most importantly, you will learn about clear steps you can take after leaving the party. This is not merely an information session with great drinks and yummy food, this is meant to inspire action! (Although, I do hope that you meet some new friends and leave with a full belly. I’m a good party host, or so I’ve been told.)
Let’s count down the top five most downloaded episodes:
If you know me, you know that I hate the word infertility. I believe that everyone who walks through my doors is fertile and can have the family they desire.
Yet, fertility is often taken for granted. It’s precious. It declines over time, and there are some well studied factors, nine that I highlight here, that put it at risk. This topic is so important to me that I dedicated a show to it.
“Dr. Aimee, how soon will I be able to get pregnant?”
This is the most common question I get from my patients. I get it. By the time you come to see me you’ve been preparing for pregnancy for a year, three, sometimes longer. I appreciate how emotional and tiring it can be to have a dream to start a family and encounter roadblocks to making it a reality. It’s one of the reasons I do what I do as I love helping people create the family of their dreams.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure commonly done in fertility clinics around the world. We place the sperm inside the uterus, close to the fallopian tubes, to increase the chances of conception.
If you’re going to do IUI treatment, you want it to work. Read along as I break down the steps to give you the best chance of success at IUI. I’ll take you through what I typically do with my patients to give you insight into what you can expect!
Which egg quality and sperm quality supplements are best for you? I’m here to share with you what I often tell my patients. My hope is that regardless of where you live and who your doctor is, that this is helpful information you can apply to your situation.
What you learn from this show has the potential to change your life forever: how to get pregnant, The Egg Whisperer Way. I’m not talking about sex positions. Fear not, there will be nothing pornographic detailed in what’s to follow.
To begin, I’m going to teach you something that I learned in my mid-20s. It has to do with asking yourself three questions. These apply to The Egg Whisperer way of getting pregnant, but they also apply to any topic in your life.Ask yourself:
- What do I want? Be specific. ex) I’m 32 years old and I want to have a baby. I want to do it naturally.
- What is it going to take to get what I want? ex) It’s going to take having a healthy lifestyle, taking prenatal vitamins, getting preconception tests done, and having sex.
- Am I willing to do it? If you’re not willing to do the things to get what you want, then you have to change #1. If at 37 someone says they want three kids and then I ask them what it’s going to take to get what they want. Some people know what it will take. Others may not. Is your plan reasonable?
