Fertility Boosters for Men and Women

yoga-1146277_1280If you’re like most couples trying to conscience, you want to get pregnant sooner rather than later. The longer it takes to get pregnant, the more pressure you put on yourself and for a women, your body. Stress and anxiety themselves can lead to infertility issues. For once, “practicing” is more work than fun.

Having intercourse as close as possible to ovulation definitely helps. To pinpoint your fertile days fertility testing kits help narrow down the window of opportunity. But fertility experts say there are other ways couples can boost their fertility.

Here are 5 tips to help increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
1. Weight Control: Being underweight or overweight can delay the time it takes a woman to conceive.

2. Sperm: Switching from boxers to briefs is an old wives’ tale, but exposure to high water temperatures through hot tubs or hot baths has shown to affect men’s fertility. It is also a possibility that long-term exposure to heat from using a computer in your lap, or a cellphone in your pocket could affect the health of a man’s sperm.

3. Beverages: Drinking too much coffee or too much alcohol can impair a woman’s fertility.

4. Smoking: Smoking cigarettes can impair both a woman’s and a man’s fertility. Smoking affects how receptive the uterus is to the egg. And in men, smoking can reduce sperm production and damage DNA.

5. Fertile Window: Your greatest chance for success is taking advantage of the fertile window – the 5 days prior to ovulation. Pregnancy is most likely to occur with intercourse within the three days before ovulation.
