How Do I Improve My Fertility?
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
If you’re ready to have a baby, but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Some women become pregnant quickly, while others take a long time. So, before you go down the road of fertility treatments, it’s important to do what you can to improve your fertility. The following tips may help you conceive, or simply give you a better chance of having successful fertility treatments.
So, keep reading for some easy ways to improve your fertility as a woman.
Keep track of your basal body temperature
Your basal body temperature indicates whether you’re ovulating or not. This is an important thing to understand as it can help you determine when you’re most fertile, especially if you’re having a hard time conceiving. Taking your temperature at the same time every day will help you understand when you’re ovulating, or if you have irregular ovulation. If you have irregular ovulation, a doctor may be able to give you more advice.
Getting to know your body on an intimate level can help you understand when you’re most fertile. Did you know that the mucus from your cervix changes throughout your cycle, and the way it changes indicates what is going on?
When your mucus looks and feels like egg whites (stretchy, sticky, and clear) then you’re the most fertile. Who would have thought it could be so simple? Also, did you know that that more mucus you have, the better chance you have of getting pregnant? Understanding your mucus and tailoring your sexual schedule to your mucus may help you increase your chances of conceiving a baby.
Especially when it comes to your weight, staying or becoming more healthy can help you boost your fertility. Being underweight or overweight can impact your period and overall cycle, thus making it harder for you to conceive. If your BMI (body mass index) is out of the healthy range, consider seeing a doctor to help you get on track. You may be surprised at how much it changes things for you.
Eat for Fertility
Foods can make your cycle irregular. You read that right. The wrong foods can affect your ability to ovulate regularly, which then makes it harder to conceive. Try replacing some of your animal protein sources (chicken, beef, and pork, for example) with vegetable proteins, and switch out that non-fat dairy with whole-fat.
