If you´ve been trying to start a family for a while now but your not getting very far then maybe a few lifestyle changes will be able to help nature along a little bit.
Trying for a baby is an exciting time and a fun one! But if you are finding it harder than you thought to conceive then below are a few tips that have been proven to increase your fertility and your chance of conceiving:
Make sure you are eating well and watch your weight
A variety of food and a balanced diet is very important if you are trying to conceive. A balanced diet helps to improve your general health and wellbeing; this is vital for both women and men when trying for a baby. A woman needs a balanced, healthy diet in order to nourish a baby and it is important to men for their sperm production. Also in women if you are under or over weight then it can disrupt your periods and hinder conception.
Get plenty of exercise
Being active when you are trying for a baby is really important to improve your fertility. You should aim for about 30 minutes exercise a day; this again applies to both men and women.
Drink wisely and stop smoking
It is suggested that women should stop drinking altogether when trying to improve fertility and trying for a baby. It is recommended that men have no more than three or four units of alcohol a day. When it comes to smoking it is often linked to fertility and early menopause in women as well as sperm problems in men so if you want the best chance of improving your fertility then I recommend that you both give up on the cigarettes.
All of the above are merely simple lifestyle changes that can help to improve your fertility. I recommend that you give the above a go and see how you get on with trying for a baby after incorporating these lifestyle changes. If however you do this and you still fail to conceive then I suggest that you make an appointment with your GP who will be able to refer you both for fertility tests to see if there is a medical reason as to why you can´t conceive.
For women there may be the issue of age when it comes to fertility as the quality and quantity of your eggs decline with age, meaning that women in their early 20´s are twice as likely to get pregnant than women in their late 30´s; however there are more medical based issues that you need to keep in mind such as ovulation problems or damaged fallopian tubes. These are examples of problems with your fertility that you sadly can´t change.
In men the possible medical problems that could be affecting your fertility are all based around your sperm. Things such as low sperm count or poor quality sperm as well as previous inflammation/injury to testicles and previous bacterial infection as well as sexual problems such as inability to have an erection.
These are just a few examples of what can affect your fertility. If you require further information about how to improve your fertility then get in touch with Pregnancy Informer today and we will be more than happy to help you in any way that we can.
