    Default Lunar Phase ovulation

    I have never heard of it before but am just reading a study on it suggesting women dont always ovulate mid cycle because of the
    phase of the moon since birth. Has anyone looked in to this method with ttc?



    WOMAN IS FERTILE DURING A CERTAIN PHASE OF THE MOON

    He eventually discovered on which phase of the moon a woman may be fertile:

    THE TIME OF A WOMAN’S FERTILITY DEPENDS ON THE RECURRENCE OF THE ANGLE BETWEEN THE SUN AND THE MOON THAT OCCURRED AT THE WOMAN’S BIRTH
    It became apparent that the lunar cycle is the blue print for the hormonal cycle – women who are reproductively and generally healthy, whose cycle is average and regular and who are not altering their cycle adversely through stress, travel or drugs – are statistically more likely to have their mid-cycle ovulation at their lunar peak than at any another time.
    For many women their mid-cycle ovulation is not synchronised with their lunar cycle, nevertheless, they may spontaneously ovulate when the sun-moon angle is the same as at their birth, no matter where they are in their hormonal cycle.

    THE NORMAL SUCCESS RATE OF THE RHYTHM METHOD (BETWEEN 30 AND 85 PERCENT) JUMPED TO APPROXIMATELY 98 PERCENT WHEN COMBINED WITH ABSTINENCE AT LUNAR FERTILE TIMES


    It is quite interesting there has been heaps of studies done on it.

    It would be interesting to test this against the OPK.

    I checked mine out for this month and it says 21 Oct and if I counted 14 days it would be the 22.

    I've read something similar to this also. I suppose there's only one way to find out if it's true.....

    ive heard about this

    and i have used the jonas wedsite and its pretty spot on with something for me.
    for my DS he was conceived around 03/12/2003 and hes due date was 12/03/2003 On Jonas site it said my lunar dates would have been the 03/04/2003 so was out by 8 days and he is a boy not girl like it said he would be the site put the risk down a "3" and
    he was 6 weeks prem and in icu for 2 weeks been tube fed and stuff.

    with my angel it was conceived around 01/07/2008 due on the 09/28/2008
    On jonas site it said my Lunar would be 01/09/2008 so thats only 2 days out and it said risk was "0" but the pregnancy ended at 10w.1d

    this worked out aswell for a friend going by all her dates so must be some truth to it all.

    Hi, I first heard of this when reading Natural Fertility Management (I think that's what it's called) by Francesca Naish. Apparently, if your ovulation coincides with your lunar natal time then your fertility naturally increases. Also, according to the theory, it is possible to ovulate if you BD when the moon is in the same phase as it was when you were born even if you have already ovulated that month. This may explain babies who are born late but show no sign of post-maturity.

    It's fascinating isn't it?
