Abington Reproductive Medicine tells us how breaking 8 bad habits in your diet and lifestyle can lead to better ovulation and an easier path to pregnancy.
Don’t let bad habits get in the way of your success—make a commitment to some of these diet and lifestyle changes, and it could lead to a more fertile you:
1) Maintain a healthy body weight and lose weight if you’re overweight.
2) Avoid trans fats. These fats are mostly found in fried food and hydrogenated oils.
3) Limit your consumption of sugars and refined carbohydrates.
4) Eat more vegetables for protein rather than from animals. Beans and lentils are good examples of vegetables loaded with protein.
5) Get more fiber in your diet! Good sources of fiber can come from vegetables, fruit and 100% whole grains.
6) Don’t skip your multivitamin.
7) Exercise every day for at least 20-30 minutes.
8) Instead of lowfat/nonfat dairy, eat full-fat dairy. Just one serving daily has been shown to can help increase fertility in women.
In addition to making changes in your life, you still may need to consult with a fertility specialist. Please remember infertility is defined as the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse for those under the age of 35. If you are over the age of 35, then you should not wait more than six months to seek care, and anyone over 40 should make an appointment as soon as possible.
