  1. I only get my period for 2-3 days and it different every month as to when I get my period. It’s very hard to get pregnant as my cycle is out of whack every month. Any suggestions? Thank you!!

  2. Rarely like myself I ovulated during mentruation. I & my sister who are now 57 & 59 were exposed to DDT in Florida growing up. I was not born in Florida but she was.I was born in CT which I was not exposed prenatally or not until I was 20 months of age. As a result she had a harder time conceiving. She also lived in California, I remained in CT.We both worked on a farm in CT. When I relocated to MA during childbearing years I was again exposed to farm chemicals very close to my home in Upton,MA

    So most of the infertility was related to environmental chemicals.
    Also my house was over a site where people dumped their old paint, automobile changed dirty oil,etc. etc. I got very sick 2 neighbors got cancer,2 men had strokes,2 had miscarriages,one got breast cancer.
    The site is called “Lookout Point” Upton,MA
    14 homes. The builder did not know what was there originally.
    A student should do a paper about this. It would make a great research project.
