Fertility Boosters: 5 Ways to Improve Your Chances

For some couples getting pregnant is quick and easy. For others, things are not that easy due to the problems linked to specific physiological issues such as blocked fallopian tubes in woman and low to no sperm count in men. These problems can be addressed by a fertility specialist using subsequent best infertility treatments in Chandigarh like in-vitro fertilization or insemination.


Standard fertility treatments can usually help but in some cases, problems are subclinical i.e. there is something wrong but is not showing up. The couples can try on their own a host of random techniques. The key to success is, knowing when to try and when it’s time for more serious medical treatment.


  1. Eat a Healthy Diet


Among the most common causes of unexplained infertility in women is a problem with ovulation. A number of factors can be responsible; the doctors believe diet is one of the keys. Eating more of monounsaturated fats and fewer trans fats, increasing intake of vegetable proteins, eating more fiber, low glycemic foods whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, consuming moderate amounts of high-fat dairy products are dietary tenets which significantly increase fertility. You can give it a try but should not depend on it alone.


  1. Weight Control


Whether or not you eat the fertility foods, maintaining a healthy weight is another way to enhance your fertility. Studies have shown that either very low or very high BMI can disrupt ovulation and may also affect the production of reproductive hormones. For women, particularly those who have overweight problems are traced with ovulation often caused by PCOS.  Excess weight can also interfere with fertility even if a woman is ovulating normally. The good news is losing those extra pounds will increase your chances of conceiving.


  1. Reduce Stress


Studies conducted have shown that stress is directly linked to a condition which is known as Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (FHA). It affects more than 5 percent of women in their reproductive years and causes irregular or no menstrual cycles. Stress reduction therapy can dramatically increase the ability to get pregnant. Stress can be reduced by anything that makes you feel relaxed like listening to music, regular massages, writing, reading, yoga, gardening, holding hands of your spouse etc. Smoking or drinking alcohol is a big NO in reducing stress, as it contributes to male and female infertility.


  1. Ovulation


Being intimate during the right time of the month increases your chances of getting pregnant but won’t do anything to increase your fertility. Timing is crucial as an egg lives only for 24 to 36 hours, but sperm can live in the woman’s reproductive tract for up to 5 days. So, to increase your chances of conceiving, you need to get intimate with your partner in the beginning 3 to 4 days prior to ovulation, and continuing up to 24 hours after ovulation. There are several methods to know when you are about to ovulate. For example, chart your basal body temperature, use Ovulation Predictor Kit (OPK), or buy a fertility monitor.


  1. Conception Kits and Other Tests


A kit helps to predict ovulation and tells you when it is the best time to have an intercourse session. Some new kits in the market not only offer ovulation prediction but also contain a small cervical cap to actually help you conceive. The ejaculate is concentrated into the cap and inserted into woman’s body directly at the opening of the cervix. It is most useful for women with previous cervical issues or men with low sperm count. A kit for male sperm motility is also available.

Is Your Weight Affecting Fertility?

Maintaining an ideal weight is very important for our overall health and well-being. Experts say that there is a direct effect of weight on fertility as well as the outcome of sterility treatments and pregnancy. It is assumed that negative effect of weight on fertility is related to being overweight. This increases insulin levels that cause the ovaries to produce male hormones and stop releasing eggs, which results in ovulatory dysfunction. A study suggests that obese men are more likely to have lower sperm counts or may produce no sperms at all than the men with normal weight. A lot of clinics for infertility treatment in Chandigarh help you in reducing weight.


Here are some tips to make you aware about your food habits. When you allow yourself to slow down, you begin to realize what your body really needs.


  • It Is Best To Eat Without Distraction


Yes, that means turning off the television, putting down your phone, book or magazine. Completely focus on the food when you eat. Your meal time should be relaxing and calm. The study suggests that people, who watch TV while eating, tend to eat more.


  • Take Time To Chew Each Bite


Learn to savor your food instead of stuffing it into your mouth. Try to chew each bite of food at least 7 to 8 times. This will take longer to eat but you will actually be satisfied for a longer time. Chewing also promotes growth and repair of the body and is beneficial in weight loss.


  • Eat Only When You Are Hungry


Many of us do not know what our body is telling us. Letting your hunger be a guide is an effective weight loss strategy. Eating when you are not hungry or for emotional reasons such as anger, sadness or boredom can be a major contributor to weight gain. The key is to take few minutes and listen to your body.


  • Stop For Few Minutes


If you find yourself heading to the fridge for a snack or a mini-meal when you have nothing else to do, take stock of how you are feeling at that moment. Are you bored? Stressed? Unless you are actually hungry, there is no reason to eat. Put a reminder on the fridge to stop and take few breaths before you indulge.


  • Limit High Fat Foods


Reduce the intake of high-calorie foods as they are the main reasons of weight gain; instead, opt for fresh fruits and veggies. It is also a good idea to thank the person who cooked your meal. She or he will be happier to cook again for you when you express gratitude. Home cooked food is best and helps in weight reduction.
