Tips To Improve Fertility


 

 Fertility is a natural process  in the body and is the result of the union of an egg  with a sperm which give rise to an embryo that grows into a baby inside the uterus.

 

 Factors which decides natural conception

  • Healthy sperm (Sperm count, motility and morphology should be good)
  • Timing of intercourse – for a healthy pregnancy the sperm and egg should meet within 24 hrs. of ovulation. An aged or degenerated egg cannot yield a healthy pregnancy.
  • Fallopian tubes should not have any blockage or obstruction.
  • Similarly the quality of egg should be good, an egg with thick covering(zona) does not allow sperm to enter inside the egg.
  • The uterus should be prepared well to receive the embryo otherwise implantation does not happen.

 How to improve chances of natural conception?

Like many aspects of our health, fertility is improved by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining an ideal weight, a diet rich in antioxidants (found in fruits and vegetables), as well as multi-vitamins may improve the quality of egg and sperm. Avoiding pollution, smoking, junk food, reducing stress and controlling chronic medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes may also improve a couple’s chances of fertility. Couples with underlying medical or genetic conditions should see a doctor so that they can increase their overall health before conceiving.

Does diet affect fertility?

Obesity has been clearly linked to impaired sperm production. Overweight men interested in optimizing fertility should attempt to attain an ideal body weight. Antioxidants such as vitamins E and C are found in most multi-vitamins. They have been found to result in a slight increase in both sperm count and movement. Fruits and vegetables also provide a natural source of antioxidants and should be part of a balanced and healthy diet. Maintaining an ideal weight avoids PCOS {polycystic ovaries} hence improves the quality of egg and chances of ovulation.
