Maternal SSRI/SNRI use leads to offspring addiction/withdrawal

After being told for decades that SSRI/SNRI drugs are safe for usage during pregnancy, now the truth finally starts to come out. Well, technically it has been out for a long time considering the skyrocketing autism rates and the strong causal link between serotonin and autism. However, up until now there had been no official … Read more

Maternal high-PUFA diet causes alcoholism, aggressiveness, early puberty, and hyper-estrogenism in offspring

Finally, an intervention study that should help convince some of the die-hard PUFA fans that these fatty acids are far from benign/beneficial, but in fact can cause a variety of chronic diseases. A very important finding of the study, that distinguishes it from other PUFA studies, is that it demonstrates without a doubt the estrogenicity … Read more

Progesterone and allpregnanolone are protective against COVID-19

I think we will be seeing more studies on this topic, especially in light of the ongoing human studies administering progesterone or (gasp!) estrogen to men in the hopes of improving the course of their COVID-19 disease. The results from the estrogen trials are already – surprise, surprise – strongly negative, and the progesterone trials … Read more

Aspirin now officially recommended for pre-eclampsia, pre-term birth, and birth defects prevention

After almost a century of evidence in favor of aspirin, combined with complete failure to develop other pharmacological interventions (and believe me, Big Pharma tried hard) mainstream medicine seems to be growing desperate enough to start recommending aspirin to ALL pregnant women as prevention of (pre)-eclampsia, pre-term birth, and birth defects. The pilot recommendation is … Read more

Estrogen excess during pregnancy may cause autism

Finally! Some common sense is emerging from the medical profession. For one, it points the finger straight at estrogen as a possible cause of autism. And not just estradiol, which the medical profession considers the only estrogen of note, but all 3 of them (estrone, estradiol, estriol). So, all the talk about estrone/estriol being weak … Read more

Progesterone can prevent recurrent miscarriages

I am only posting this because this is yet another mysterious condition for which officially there is no cure. As a result, all kinds of absurd explanations are given including “genetic incompatibility” of partners, mental disorders, “addiction” and/or substance abuse, etc. As it turns out, it may be simply a progesterone deficiency, and giving those … Read more

Endotoxin (LPS) may be a major cause of preterm births

As many readers have probably heard, rates of preterm births due to a variety of maternal conditions including (pre)eclampsia has been steadily increasing since the 1980s. The official version is that the cause is unknown despite older studies proving definitively that progesterone deficiency was a major cause and that treatment with progesterone or increasing dietary … Read more

Fertility depends on metabollism (ATP), not age

As many of you know, there are two fundamental dogmas in reproductive medicine. One is that every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and those cannot be replenished. The second one is that there is a biological fertility clock in every woman that inexorably ticks, and if the female does not have … Read more
