Human life is always segmented into discrete time pockets. Maybe you work in sales and your life is driven in monthly sales goals. Or you are a teacher and your life is divided between school time and non-school time. For IF couples life is divided into cycles. Ask a woman suffering from IF what day it is. She may not be able to tell you the day of the week or the date but I gurantee she will tell you her cycle day – where she is in her monthly menstral cycle or assisted cycle (more on this later).
Maybe she is charting her Basal Body Temperature (BBT) to determin ovulation through an increased temperature created by the hormone progesterone in her blood.
Maybe she is taking hormone therapy injections multiple times per day so her doctor can control her cycle.
Either way she knows exactly where she is, what her ovaries are currently doing and what they will do in the next 2 weeks.
What day is it for you?
