Infertility is worsening, affecting 12% of the population. The World Health Organization considers infertility a global health issue with significant burden to populations. The largest causes of infertility are ovulatory disorders, male factor and unexplained infertility. These are mostly affected by lifestyle and environmental factors which can be adjusted to increase chances of getting pregnant. In this article we discuss 5 ways to increase fertility. These can be used alongside natural and assisted conception.
There are several lifestyle and environmental factors that have been proven to affect fertility. This gives you an opportunity to take back control by adjusting some of these parameters and increase your chances of pregnancy.
Having an understanding of how your body works, paying attention to changes you may notice, is important. You can also learn about natural conception and identifying your fertile window. Knowing about assisted conception, IVF and other techniques can help you feel more in control of the process. This knowledge will help you:
Getting the right nutrients into your body is essential so your body has the energy to do its several bodily functions. This includes producing hormones, developing eggs and sperm, preparing the uterus for implantation, leading a pregnancy to term, and delivering a healthy baby. Professionals recommend keeping hydrated with water and a healthy, well-balanced nutrition, with unprocessed foods and rich in fruit and vegetables.
Our bodies require a degree of activity to remain healthy. Professionals recommend moderate exercise for 30 minutes a day. If you are trying to conceive, research shows high frequency/intensity training is counterproductive as it can affect ovulation.
Certain habits and addictions, like too much caffeine, smoking or drinking can reduce egg and sperm quality. Our environment, like plastics and radiation can also affect fertility.
Emotional distress is the first reason for patients to stop fertility treatment. Getting professional support during treatment can help you develop coping strategies, help you make challenging decision, improve communication with partners among other aspects.
