How Much Do You Know About Your Fertility?

I have collaborated with a fertility clinic in London to share some helpful information on fertility, as well as some expert advice on how to look after your body in preparation for pregnancy…

Age

Many couples are unable to conceive a baby naturally and seek the help of fertility treatments like IVF. In fact, as many as one in seven couples in the UK are affected by infertility. One of the most common causes of infertility is age. Many of us know that as a woman ages her fertility declines, but did you know that sperm quality also declines with age?

Lifestyle

Did you know that excessive exercise and some ‘fad diets’ can prevent a woman’s menstrual cycle and therefore hinder her chance of becoming pregnant? Smoking and drinking alcohol can also harm the reproductive system for both men and women. Simple changes to improve your lifestyle will increase your chances of having a baby. For example, a nutritious diet filled with vitamins and minerals is what you should be aiming for. You should also try to include moderate exercise into your daily routine.

Expert Advice

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for 1 to 2 years without success, don’t be afraid to book an appointment with your GP. Being able to talk about the issue is one of the first steps to finding a possible solution. There are many factors that can lead to infertility, so it is always advised to seek expert advice. A medical professional will discuss your history and carry out a series of tests to try and identify the cause of the problem. It may be that you have an underlying health issue or scarring from a previous STI. The most common causes are ovulation failure (which can be caused by lots of different things) and sperm disorders.

    Hello Clarie! thank you for such a great article. I was researching about IVF (in- vitro fertilization) and I came across your blog. It is really interesting. The IVF has been boon to may couples that are trying hard to conceive. Your article will help to those women who are looking forward to do IVF. I also wanted to know if there are any genetic disorder or any health issue to the baby in the future. Thanks in advance. Have a nice day
