Best diet to increase fertility

Common Questions and Answers about Best diet to increase fertility


492936 tn?1244651570 I was wondering if anyone here has heard of the fertility diet and if you have gotten the book or followed it, gotten pregnant with its aid or not? I have an IVF cycle starting up next month and want to increase my odds. First one failed.
Avatar n tn Losing weight is a dietary matter -- no supplements have really proven out well for this. Some might help in coordination with an exercise program. The main way to lose weight and improve health is to improve your diet and start an exercise program. I'm also wondering why the B6 and folic acid if you're not currently pregnant? Taking these two can interfere with B12 levels. B6 in excess can cause neuropathy, though it's not common.
Avatar m tn You can drink coffee to speed it up and also antioxidants to increase the number and motility. Limit your alcohol consumption and no diet drugs like xenadrine. You should get a sperm anaylsis if your haven't already. Just becuase you are 43 doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your sperm potential.
Avatar f tn Then a well balanced diet will absolutely help your chances of success. Take part in the fertility diet to enhance your reproductive organs. Also to ensure good quality blood supply to the uterus. Good quality blood supply to the uterus increases protein and nutrient secretion around implantation, which your embryos will love!! Get your partner on the sperm diet. Acupuncture is now, without a doubt, one of the best ways to enhance rates.

I do that as well, and its worked! Best of luck in getting a BFP!!! Sticky baby dust to you!!

Avatar f tn anytime when you are taking fertility medicine, you chance are having twin. Most of doctor already do the best he/she can to help you. There are a lot of reason why you can't have a baby even though your test come back normal or above normal. If you feel the doctor didn't do the job, then go to specialist (RE) for treatment. Stress, poor diet, weight, age, uterine fibroids, health problem, athletic training, etc... there are so many factors why woman can't conceive.
Avatar f tn t take long to get a basic work up- some blood tests and aplevic ultrasound for you, and semen analysis for your partner. The doctor will be able to tell you where to go from there. Otherwise, trying to be healthy- getting in a healthy weight range, stopping smoking and reducing alcohol intake, healthy diet +/- some prenatal vitamins, bit of exercise. Wishing you all the best of luck with your tests and the future...
1491327 tn?1313569112 Hi, my husband and I have male fertility problems, his count is around 2 million. Our fertility doctor said it's best not to store up sperm... you should ejaculate around 3 to 5 days before your wife is due to ovulate, and then have intercourse every two days around ovulation time. That's what the doctors told us. I hope this helps.

Omega 3 and omega fatty acids are hormone regulators and vital to a woman’s fertility since a hormonal imbalance can interfere with ovulation.
Avatar f tn We tried to for nearly 18mths unsuccessfully for our 3rd I resigned to the fact it wasn't going to happen and then boom out of no where 6mths later I was pregnant. I think sometimes if we put to much pressure on ourselves it can make conceiving more difficult. Try for a few months to relax a little and not think about it too much and see if that makes any difference?
Avatar f tn In short no prenatal can't help you get pregnant however having a healthy lifestyle can contribute to being more fertile. You should keep taking them and read a book like "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" for some good points on how to get pregnant.
1640824 tn?1325888415 My insurance covers fertility treatments but I decided to also start doing the accupuncture, diet and yoga after reading the Infertility Cure by Radine Lewis. I plan on doing IVF in early 2012 and I feel like this is helping me prepare my body and increasing my chances of success. Good luck and I hope you get pregnant very soon!
Avatar n tn Both of you need to be right weight for height and live a healthy life style - No alcohol, no caffeine, cut out dairy and non organic meats as they contain hormones that can affect sperm production and conception. Drink plenty of filtered water. Exercise. Eat foods that contain vitamin E (avocados are one) to boost fertility. Add maca powder to your diet. Good luck!
