There are a number of ways to increase fertility naturally which can be tried before resorting to any medical intervention. Very often, it is a simple change or "tweak" which can make all the difference and bring about a successful pregnancy.
Over the past few years, fertility problems have increased manyfold. Around a quarter of couples will experience difficulties conceiving and an increasing number of couples will turn to their doctors for help. Before that, why not try to boost your chances using natural methods.
It is often a combination of a number of small yet subtle factors which contribute towards fertility problems. Individually, they may not be significant but when combined, they can lead to the commonly caused "unexplained infertility" which is the label given by doctors when there is no obvious cause. When a couple fails to become pregnant and all the usual causes have been exhausted, it's perhaps time to explore others such as your lifestyle, dietary issues and stress levels.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to increase fertility naturally is to take a good hard look at your diet and make modifications where necessary. Very often, couples experiencing problems do not appreciate the huge impact that what you eat has on your fertility.
For example, one study showed that previously "infertile" couples who changed their lifestyle and diet and included a nutritional supplement had an 80% pregnancy success rate further down the line. It is important to make changes as soon as possible as it can take around 3 months for the beneficial effects to show.
Most of us understand the principles of a healthy diet and we should embrace these thoroughly. You should aim to eat organic foods wherever you can and base your diet around eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, beans, nuts, seeds and small quantities of lean proteins. Dairy foods are also important and you should aim to eat 3 portions a day.
Other ways to increase fertility naturally include drinking the correct fluids. Filtered water is the perfect drink as it contains no harmful elements and is essential for both parties. Remaining well-hydrated is essential for sperm health and the fluids surrounding the egg and in the fallopian tubes. Your reproductive organs also need to remain hydrated to be healthy. You should avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine, both of which are fertility detractors.
Nutritional supplements can also play a part. There are now many available which are specially designed for couples wanting to conceive and contain the essential nutrients required to boost your chances of pregnancy. If you decide to try them, you may wish to consult your doctor or at the very least, ensure that you obtain a well-known reputable brand.
