Looking at the moon cycle can be very helpful if you are trying (or not trying) to conceive. All women are of course familiar with the female fertility cycle also known as the biological cycle.  Mid-cycle a woman ovulates and can conceive. This always occurs 14 days before the next period.

But if this is the only time during the cycle that a woman can conceive how is it possible that so many women conceive outside these fertile days – at ‘ technically not possible’ times’?  There has to be more to it!

This was the question that plagued the Czech doctor Eugen Jonas in the 1950ies.  He was a psychologist and listened to many stories of his female clients, who either suffered from unwanted pregnancies or lack of conceiving.

He, therefore, decided to look more closely into the subject matter of female fertility. He unearthed fragments from Ancient Greek and particular Babylonian texts, where doctors successfully calculated the optimum time for conception and birth control using a method that overlapped the time of menstruation together with the path of the moon.  Combining these old texts with his research data he realized that each woman has a time in their cycle when she was more easily aroused and ready to conceive. This cycle varied from woman to woman, as it was dependent on the time she was born.

For example, a  woman born on a full moon day would always find this time in the lunar cycle the easiest to conceive. He then named this second fertility cycle – the cosmobiological cycle.

Once both cycles are taken into consideration, they form a nearly perfect birth control system that has a success rate of over 98%, higher than even the pill. But this system is completely free and natural and once you know how to use it, every woman can use this method to control her fertility – whatever her circumstances and wherever in the world she lives.

I find it hard to believe that this system is not more widely known and available to all women.

Here is an example of how to use this method. 

The first step is to mark the start date of your last menstruation on your calendar. Then count 15 days on and this marks your ovulation date with a cross. As sperm can last up to 3 days and ovulation does not always happen bang on Day 15, I suggest you cross off 4 days before and 2 days after your calculated ovulation day. This should give you enough safety margin.

So you should have crossed off Days 10 to 17 after the first day of your menstruation. This is your biological cycle and normally ‘natural birth control’ ends here with a success rate of around 55%. You can of course add additional measures like checking your daily temperature to make this method slightly more effective.

But adding the next step should bring the rate up to a whopping 98%.

The next step is to find out your cosmobiologcial date (the date within the moon cycle you were born).   I am sure you can research what the moon was doing on the day of your birth. You would come up with a date like 3 days after New Moon, 6 days before Full Moon, and so on.

Then check a current moon calendar and find which date corresponds to the current moon cycle. At first, it may sound complicated, but once you know you were born on the 3rd day of the Waning Moon (so 3 days after the Full Moon) you can just mark it on the LWTM lifestyle calendar for the coming months and plan your fertility year ahead. 

To make it easier here is an example of how to use the whole method:

We assume here that the first date of your last period was on the 1st of January, so you would cross off all dates between the 10th to 17th of January. If you were born on a Full Moon (and we assume here that it falls on the 24th of January), then please cross off the period between the 20th and the 25th Jan.

All the crossed-off days are the ones you can conceive, all other days should be safe for unprotected sex. However, with new partners, you should still opt for protected sex to keep you out of harm’s way for many sexually transmitted diseases. 

Many women ovulate in exact accordance with the lunar cycle and the times won’t change too much. But some have shorter or longer cycles and dates will slightly shift or even overlap. If this happens, then these days are super fertile days and are of particular interest if you find it hard to conceive.

With age or circumstances, menstruation cycles can change, but this method won’t as you will always count from the start of your last period and the date of your cosmobiological date.

Fertility treatment, menstruation and menopause

Fertility treatment, menstruation and menopause

Today’s topic has to do with sexual health, conception, menopause, and menstruation. As these topics are highly individual we cannot put a date in a general calendar that fits everyone. But it is a good day to read up on these subjects and look up additional resources.

Conceive with the moon 

female fertilityHere is an article I originally wrote in 2014 called Conveice with the Moon. It is based on a book by the Czech doctor Eugen Jonas who treated women for infertility in the early 1950s and discovered a second cycle that he called The Cosmobiological cycle. This method is free and effective and puts women in control of their body, wherever they live as there is no need for prescriptions or tools.

Looking at my friends, infertility is definitely an issue. I have been familiar with Dr. Eugen Jonas’ cosmobiological method for a long time and it has helped me to conceive 2 beautiful boys. He started this method during the 1950ies and this totally natural method can of course also be used for the opposite – a natural way of birth control that is as effective as the pill. This method works, regardless of where in the world you live. There is no gadget or medication needed, just a calendar and a method of calculation. 

The menopause

Mostly described as a curse and until recently barely mentioned. It is encouraging that at least here in the UK, the debate about menopause has started and some real practical help is on hand. Whatever your thoughts about HRT, family history, or personal preference, I think it is really important to make an informed choice. Here is an app created by  Dr Louise Newson called The Balance App. She also has a very informative podcast. My recommendation is not to wait until menopause hits, but to get the information before you turn 45. By then you will have entered the peri-menopause and having this knowledge will ease your transition into and through the menopause.
Herbs for this region: 

Red Clover, Lady’s Mantel, Red raspberry leaf tea, and Lemon balm are all useful herbs to help you during menopause.

Menopause tea (you can also drink it before your period starts and if you suffer with PMT- premenstrual tensions)

1/2 cup lady’s mantle
1/2 cup red raspberry leaf
1/2 cup lemon balm

For larger quantities expand in this ratio and keep it in a large glass jar.

  • Place all herbs in a dry glass jar with a lid and shake until they’re mixed up well. Alternatively, you can mix the herbs in a bowl and then add the mixture to the jar.
  • To make one cup of tea all you need is 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs per cup of hot water. Put them in a sieve container and immerse them in your cup for a short period. Another option is to add 2-3 teaspoons in a small sieve and place it on top of your thermos flask or glass jug and slowly run the water that has boiled but slightly cooled to 80/90 degrees over the leaves. Then discard them.   This makes a larger quantity and you can sip it over the morning until lunchtime.

For period pains and discomfort:

  • Sitz bath: There you want a stronger mixture. Add 1-2 tablespoons of herbs to a pint-size (500ml) jug and fill it up with hot water.  Leave to stand for 7-8 minutes and strain.  Add this mixture to the bath water (run the water only to cover your private area and not higher) and remain in the bath for 15 minutes until the bath cools down. This is a great relief during your period, especially if you suffer from pain or PMS. You can top your sitz bath up with actual drinking cups of tea during the day (use the same mixture).
  • Begin drinking the tea about a week before you are expecting your period.
  • If you have problems with heavy cramping, get a hot water bottle and place it on your lower belly. Then sip this tea at the same time to soothe this area. If you need to work you still have to rely on pain medication, but try this natural alternative when you can.
