Married for a few years, are you still waiting to hear that tiny wail and be a mother. Every time you time your intercourse, wait for two weeks, and hope the reproductive systems perform well and then the pregnancy test, but still unable to get that good news. Rolling the dice to your fertility experts, you get a common advice: lose weight and be healthier.
Infertility experts across the country say that in the past decade and a half, there has been an alarming growth in the young couples facing fertility issues, simply because of their lifestyle changes.
So when dealing with infertility, there are things about your body that you can control. By taking charge of your lifestyle, both you and your partner may increase your chances of conception.
The Right Time
Being career oriented is great, but delaying marriage and baby is not. Our bodies are designed in a particular way, and your biological clock starts ticking as you head towards your 30s. Even today, most women are unaware of the fact that fertility starts declining with age, and wait to achieve a high in career before planning family.
Simple Reasons of Infertility
Infertility is a severe concern today, but the factors behind it are as simple. Following fad diet, being overweight or underweight, repeated abortions or unsafe abortions, strenuous activity, consumption of alcohol or tobacco, stress and high blood pressure are those reasons which are under our control and make significant difference in fertility levels.
Other real problems couples are dealing with today are less or no time to give each other, slump in relations due to job stress, tiredness leading to less interest in each other, and different shift timings of spouses.
Simple Changes for a Blissful Parenthood
Not to delay pregnancy and have safe sexual practices are the key. But before going to the tough-end medications and medical processes, it’s important to adapt to a healthy lifestyle to beat this bug called infertility.
Some serious changes in the behavioural patterns need to be considered.
Firstly, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight; stop smoking, limit intake of caffeine and alcohol, do moderate exercise and avoid strenuous exercise; go natural and avoid unnecessary medications, take vitamins and review your natural supplement usage.
Be cool, be happy and stop worrying, it will happen, only if you commit to it. Make some positive changes and feel empowered. These changes can make you look and feel better too, and if these lifestyle changes are doctor recommended, they certainly can’t hurt. Go for it.
