I know a few childless couples who would like to have kids of their own. My son’s dentist took a leave of absence as he and his wife opted to undergo fertility treatments. A colleague has been trying to get pregnant for years but has not been successful. A good friend and former officemate, who has been married for more than a decade now, still hopes to become a mom. I had infertility issues as well during the early years of my marriage because of pituitary tumor. Fortunately for me, I conceived a year after my tumor was removed.
Some couples, if they can’t get pregnant when they want to, start to become stressed and worried that they may have some infertility issues. That’s not always the case. Some couples only need to change their lifestyle and improve their fertility. There are several ways to improve your fertility without spending too much. One of them is changing what you eat. If you are into junk, processed, and canned foods, try to change it as soon as possible. Think colors – all the colorful fruits and vegetables provide so many vitamins and minerals to help improve your body’s natural fertility. Foods that are rich in omega-3 like salmon and sardines are also a great help to boost your body’s fertility.
Another fertility boosting nutrient is zinc. It specially helps improve men’s sperm motility and sperm count. Oysters and dairy foods are rich in zinc; you may want to give them a try. With proper nutrition and a healthy body, you have better chances of conceiving. According to www.pregnancytips.org, not only are there fertility boosting foods, but there are also particular foods you can eat to increase your chances of conceiving either a boy or a girl, depending upon your preference. Now whether these really work or not is up for debate, but it’s a fun food for thought.
