Natural Ways to Help Fertility
If you are trying to conceive without success, you may feel as though in vitro fertilization is your only option to have a family. I am pleased to tell you that natural fertility is still an option!
What many people don’t know is that infertility is often a health issue. Couples who struggle with getting pregnant often find that improving their overall health enables them to conceive naturally. This is because unhealthy bodies full of toxins and nutrient deficiencies can’t properly balance the hormones that boost fertility.
I am excited to help you conceive naturally with healthy, safe, and budget-friendly fertility remedies. Here are six natural ways to help get pregnant:
Avoid Toxins from Pesticides and Other Sources
Toxin buildup in the body can lead to female and male infertility.
Toxins repress natural biological functions. For example, women who eat foods full of pesticides may experience menstrual cycle disruption and inhibited ovarian function. Men can have a lower sperm count and sperm motility. Look for healthy, organic food sources and products that don’t contain harmful chemicals to keep your body healthy and balanced.
Eat Fertility Foods
Proper nourishment can help increase fertility by keeping your body healthy and optimal for conception.
Nutrition increases your chances of getting pregnant because it boosts ovulation and reduces the risk of early miscarriage. Your diet should include foods that are rich in the following nutritional components:
- Antioxidants, which prevent free radicals from damaging sperm and eggs
- Fiber, which helps remove excess hormones such as estrogen to keep the body balanced
- Low-carb foods, which promote menstrual regularity and reduce anti-fertility insulin and testosterone
- Protein from plant sources, which protects against infertility
Unexplained infertility may be the result of a sedentary lifestyle.
Moderate exercise is key, as too little exercise can make your body unhealthy, while much high-intensity exercise can affect hormone levels and lead to infertility in women. An effective exercise routine can increase your fertility because it helps you to have a healthy body that is ready to give birth.
Smoking cigarettes can cause you to have trouble getting pregnant.
The toxins in cigarettes can age the ovaries and damage the eggs, preventing proper fertilization. While smoking can cause permanent damage, quitting cigarettes can help you regain ovarian function and prolong your fertile period.
Reduce Your Alcohol and Caffeine Intake
Alcohol consumption has been identified and one of the causes of infertility.
Alcohol affects estrogen levels, which can interfere with the implantation of an egg. While the occasional drink won’t affect your fertility hormones, you should not drink alcohol in excess if you are trying to get pregnant. Similarly, drinking caffeine can make it harder to get pregnant. If you are working on taking charge of your fertility, you may find that regulating your drink choices can help you conceive a child.
Take Minerals and Vitamins to Increase Fertility
Couples and individuals who are deficient for nutrients have a higher risk of fertility problems because their fertility hormones aren’t stabilized.
Nutrients such as such as folic acid, iron, zinc, and vitamins C and D play a crucial role in preparing your body to sustain a fertilized egg or produce healthy sperm. The typical American diet is not often rich in fertility vitamins and minerals. If you aren’t regularly consuming foods that are rich in these vitamins and minerals, you can try taking supplements to improve your fertility.
You may feel as though you have tried everything to get pregnant, and it’s understandable if you feel frustrated and lost. I invite you to learn more about the fertility journey of Lindsay Gelay, author of NJ Mom.
