1. Contraceptives overview and conception
I'm a pharmacist, and even I get overwhelmed with how many oral contraceptives there are. Doctors usually pick the one with which they are most familiar, and there's nothing wrong with that approach. They know a few of them really well, and they can anticipate potential side effects.

2. Conceiving a child with perfect teeth
Do you think that the health of your teeth are a completely hereditary condition? Guess again--even if your family doesn't have perfect teeth, there is something you can do before conception as well as after to make sure that your babies have perfect teeth.

3. Echinacea and conception
Echinacea has long been popular for colds and flu because it may help boost the immune system. It appears to be antiviral and stimulate T-cell production, very useful for a cold. However, it may also inhibit hyaluronidase, and this could factor in to decreasing your odds for conception.

4. Chlorella and conception
Chlorella and spirulina are superfoods that detoxify your body, plus, if you're like me and don't eat many greens, they can fill that void.

5. Lysine and conception
L-lysine is an essential amino acid. All that means is that our bodies don't make it, so we have to eat it. It has a bunch of really helpful attributes, so let's take a look at it.

6. Alfalfa and conception
Fields of alfalfa have the sweetest smell when being harvested. It's a great crop for field rotation, too, but it turns out it can't help much with conception.

7. Pre-conception genetic testing
Pre-conception genetic testing is offered to couples who are concerned about inherited disorders.

8. HSG procedure and conception
For some women, getting pregnant is not so simple. One procedure that doctors use to see if there are problems is HSG, or hysterosalpingogram. If you're told you need one, what does it involve?

9. Pesticides and conception
Pesticides are bad for humans in so many ways, one of which is fertility. This is true for both men and women.

10. Red Clover and Conception
Red clover is no different from any other clover except that it has pretty little red blooms. Like all clover, it contains coumarin, which is the active ingredient in most rat poisons.
