 Fertility includes Women and Men. Healthy fertility means "NO" smoking, alcohol, caffeine, drug use.                                                               When you want to become "Pregnant" talk with your doctor and the father to be.     



   10 ways to "BOOST" your Fertility:

Healthy weight: Having excess body fat can lead to producing  to many hormones that can disrupt ovulation. You may have regular cycles, you may ovulate less often. So by ovulating less, you may not get pregnant.

Not having enough fat means your body can not produce enough hormones to ovulate. Each month it is hard for your body to get pregnant.

Eat Healthy Meals: When making meals make sure you include vitamin c, zink, iron, protein.  Not having enough of these nutrients can lead to longer menstrual cycles, therefor less frequent ovulation and higher risk of miscarriage.

Exercise: Exercising daily or three times a week for twenty minutes can help you stay at a healthy weight. Don't excise too much. Long distance runners or athletes that are competitive on a daily basis may stop ovulating less frequently. Over exercising can lead to a miscarriage.

Quit Smoking...... "NOW": Smoking cigarettes can interfer with a women's fertilization and can cause her ovaries to age. Meaning that a women at thirty five years of age would have ovaries of an fourty two year old. A you quit smoking you can bring back some of the functions of your ovaries.

Depression: May have the ability to hamper your fertility. Learning to relax, yoga weekly, going to support groups, walking along a shoreline of an ocean, spending a day with family or friends can help you get your hormones back on track.

Knowing your Cycle: A normal menstrual cycle lasts twenty five to thirty five days, counting the first day of period. A women's fertile days are usually the day of ovulation and the four of five days before not after. Don't assume that you automatically ovulate on the 14 of your menstrual cycle. Ovulation varies from women to women. Occuring as early as day 6 and as late as 21 of a cycle.You can try an ovulation kit which checks certain hormones in your urine or not changes in your basil body temperature and cervical mucus.

No more Drinking "Alcohol" and "Caffeine" : Alcohol may alter estrogen levels which may interfere with egg implantation.

Cutting back on Caffeine: A study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics Gynecology found that women who drank 2 cups of coffee were twice likely to miscarry as those who didn't consume any coffee.

Drinking one  eight oz. of caffeine, you should consume three eight oz. of water to get the caffeine out of your body.

Don't Douche: This can take away normal protective bacteria in the vagina, shifting the balance. Putting you at risk for bacterial diagnosis often overlooked vaginal infection.

Some research suggests women who stay active weekly with intercourse, have predictable menstrual cycles and normal ovulation than women who have sporadic sex. One theory: your husband emits sex hormones that influence your reproductive system. Weekly sex may also make you produce more estrogen. Having sex every 36 to 48 hours in the few days before ovulation will make the most of your fertile window.

Don't Overlook Your Husbands Health:

Cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, poor diet, caffeine, any of these habits can contribute to lower production or mobility (ability to swim) taking a multivitamin daily is good for his health.
