When I got married, I feel that getting pregnant is as easy as 1,2,3 so I took pills after we got married because I don’t want to get pregnant yet. After 18 months, I decided to stop taking pills and I was lucky that I got pregnant after two months. I was blessed because I have no fertility issues because I know someone who got pregnant after 12 years of being married. They did everything just to have a baby.
From our friends at Pregnancy Tips.org, there are many couples out there who are suffering from fertility issues. Some studies estimate that one in six couples has some sort of a fertility problem, whether it be a male fertility issue, a female fertility issue, an unexplained issue, or an issue with more than one thing. While fertility issues are actually pretty common these days, not all of them need extensive or expensive fertility treatments in order to be reversed or “fixed”.
In fact, there are lots of things that couples can do themselves that can go a long way towards boosting their fertility. A big one is weight. If a woman is underweight or overweight, that can affect her fertility. Bad habits like smoking, drug use, alcohol and caffeine can all affect fertility as well. Too many junk foods, processed foods, sugary snacks and sweets can really be detrimental to fertility as well, so eating a healthy well balanced diet is very important. Reducing stress, getting plenty of sleep, and trying to be as healthy as possible overall is the best way to help to boost fertility on your own.
