High Protein and Getting Pregnant

High Protein Diet Reduces Likelihood of Pregnancy.
High protein intake is associated with high levels of ammonium in the female reproductive tract, which is in turn associated with breakdowns in imprinting (expression of critical specifically female genes), in implantation, and in fetal development. Studies so far have been with mice, so it’s not definitive, but they’re the same genes working the same way. Not, however, recommended as sole means for birth control. (More at ScienceDaily.)
And: a single act of unprotected sex is more likely to result in pregnancy than previously thought. The European Soc. for Human Reproduction and Embryolgy reports results indicating that without being consciously aware they were doing so, women who actively did not want children still engaged in sex more at their periods of maximum fertility than any other time.
