WAYS TO BOOST YOUR FERTILITY .Some individuals have a hard time conceiving due to fertility problems. Most doctors recommend fertility treatments that are expensive and are not always an assurance that you will eventually conceive.

Trying out natural ways to enhance the process may be a cost effective and less intrusive idea to improve fertility. These are not an assurance either but you are sure that the effect they have on your body in general will be positive.



The pressure to conceive, from within and without, can be extreme and cause an imbalance in your hormones. Take some time to cool down and remember that it will happen when your body is ready.

Study your cycle

This will allow you to know when you are more likely to conceive. A normal cycle is between 25 to 35 days starting from the first day you get your period. Ovulation normally occurs halfway during the cycle but could change. Your body temperature will be higher and your vaginal discharge will be thick and clear like egg yolk during ovulation.WAYS TO BOOST YOUR FERTILITY .

Watch your weight

A study revealed that women with weight issues took a longer time to conceive than those who had their weight in acceptable ranges. This applies to both underweight and overweight women. Check that your BMI is okay and if not strive to achieve it.


Eat healthy

You are what you eat and a healthy diet for both of you will keep your bodies in optimum condition. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink enough water. Foods rich in zinc, calcium, protein, iron, vitamin C are known to set your menstrual cycle straight and assist with conception.

Quit smoking and drinking

These two vices add to the list of toxins in your body. They both interfere with implantation of the egg. Smoking causes damage even to the ovaries and prolonged smoking may cause infertility altogether.

This also goes for the man since sperm quality is affected by these two as well.

Take extra care of the sperm

Some theories have been floated around about temperature and sperm. It is said that high temperatures may damage sperm and so you should try and regulate how hot it gets down there. A man trying for a baby should not place a laptop on his lap for extended periods. Frequent hot showers and sessions in the hot tub could also pose a risk due to the high temperatures.

Get busy

More sex increases your chances of conceiving. It may also cause your cycle to normalize which raises chances of conception. Try not to make it a chore though because this can lower your sex drive and achieve the opposite
