Every couple’s ultimate goal - well, most of them - is to get a child. There is some unexplainable joy that comes with knowing that you are about to become a mother, and few things beat the overwhelming sensation of holding a newborn in your arms as its dad. Unfortunately, however, not every woman can conceive that easily. Some couples have to try a little harder while others wait for years before getting their first baby bump. Research found that the main culprit behind those long waits in infertility. Not to worry, though; there are ways you could use to improve your fertility if you ever find yourself in such a situation. They include the following:
According to scientists, women who are overweight are usually less fertile compared to those who are balanced or fit. Overweight women produce more quantities of hormone leptin produced in the fatty tissue which upsets the hormonal balance and may lead to infertility.
Being overweight may also put you in the way of dangerous health conditions such as heart attacks, and even complications during pregnancy. If you are looking to conceive any time soon and carry through the pregnancy successfully, then it is time to hit the gym!
PUT ON SOME WEIGHT!
If your body mass index (BMI) is less than eighteen, you may need to put on some weight before considering getting pregnant. Underweight women have been found to ovulate less often.
ADJUST YOUR SEXUAL POSITIONS
Far-fetched as this may sound, your sexual position may determine if you get pregnant or not. The ideal position must ensure the deepest penetration so that the sperm is deposited as close to the cervix as possible. Experts suggest the missionary position is the most ideal, and that one should elevate their hips for at least fifteen minutes after sex to allow the sperm to travel to the egg.
WATCH WHAT YOU EAT
A balanced diet and carefully planned diet will not only ensure that your BMI stays within a reasonable range but also puts you out of the way of conditions that make it hard to conceive and those that may cause possible complications during pregnancy.
REGULATE YOUR COFFEE INTAKE
According to research, women taking more than 300g of coffee per day are likely to have low fertility levels. Reduce your intake or replace it with something healthier like green tea or even milk.
Yoga reduces your stress levels and allows your body to calm down enough for hormones to balance. This increases your level of fertility and creates a conducive environment for the baby to develop in. If you do fall pregnant, you can continue in the early stages with gentle yoga (of course consult your physician first), and make sure you get your pregnancy support accessories and maternity clothing.
Some herbs have been found to increase fertility in women by stimulating glands to produce and regulate specific hormones. They include chaste tree berries, wild yam, and dong quai.
In conclusion, do not give up getting pregnant just because your fertility levels are low. Follow these tips, and pretty soon you will be holding your bundle of joy which you will also need to cloth with comfy and fashionable apparel..... Good luck!
