					How You Can Enhance Your Fertility The Natural Way

Having a baby is an amazing blessing. Sadly, 10% of couples who want to conceive are afflicted by
fertility issues. Discussing with a fertility professional may help, but not everyone would like their child
conceived through medications or artificial means. On top of that, infertility treatments can be
incredibly costly, and they are physically as well as emotionally strenuous. If you and your partner are
experiencing fertility issues, you might want to learn how to increase fertility naturally to raise your
chances of getting pregnant.

1. Eat a healthy diet

If you would like to learn how to increase fertility naturally, then you should first learn how to eat
healthily. There is a close relationship between diet and fertility. Eating a well-balanced diet besides
helping you maintain a healthy weight, it helps regulate hormones and also sustain a healthy
reproductive system, thus having a significant effect on fertility in both women and men.

Women ought to take preconception vitamins supplements for example vitamin C, minerals and folic
acid. Vitamin C and antioxidants help in reducing stress on the eggs and reproductive organs, while folic
acid helps protect against certain birth defects.

In men, a diet abundant with zinc is said to help in improving sperm production. Vitamins and minerals
such as vitamin C help to avoid sperm problems, while calcium and vitamin D supports better male
fertility.

Steer away from processed foods, alcohol and caffeine. Smoking should be avoided as well.

2. Stay physically active

One of the best ways to enhance fertility naturally is to maintain an ideal body weight. Both women and
men should exercise regularly and keep close track of how much they weigh. In women, overweight or
underweight can adversely change sex hormone secretion and lead to imbalance in the fertility cycle.
Moderate workout is a good way to improve fertility naturally, but do not overdo exercise because this
could actually impair fertility.

The same goes for the guys. Over-exercise causes the temperature in the testicles to increase, leading to
reduced sperm count and poor sperm motility.

3. Traditional medicine from ancient Chinese

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is one of many popular ways to improve fertility naturally. TCM is an
one of the world's oldest tradition but its practices have been of late confirmed by science. TCM
comprises the employment of herbs, acupuncture, and specific diets, and address infertility through a
holistic approach simply by allowing your body to repair and heal itself. When your bodily systems are
working normally, this will help increase your chances of getting pregnant.
