5 Tips to Help Boost Your Fertility

When you finally decide it’s time to start a family, it can be disheartening if it takes longer than expected. Timing is everything and having intercourse as close to ovulation as possible is the best way to conceive. However, there are simple lifestyle changes that can help boost your fertility naturally.

5 tips to help boost your fertility

Take a look at a few his and hers tips to boost fertility, so your body is as ready to get pregnant as you are:

  • For her: Maintain a healthy weight
    If you’ve been looking for the perfect reason to reach your goal weight, look no further. Women who are under or overweight typically have a more difficult time getting pregnant. Maintaining a healthy weight can help with conception, so talk to your doctor about how you can get to your ideal weight.
  • For him: Protect your sperm
    There are plenty of natural ways to boost your fertility and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Try these tips for increasing your testosterone: Eat pomegranate seeds, load up on herbs like American ginseng, rosemary, green tea, turmeric, saw palmetto, and tribulus … and don’t forget to exercise regularly.
  • For her: Reach for non-alcoholic and caffeine-free beverages more often
    Too much caffeine and alcohol can impair a woman’s fertility, so try to limit yourself to one or two cups of coffee per day and a glass of alcohol on occasion.
  • For him: Get enough folate
    Folate isn’t just for women’s fertility health; men can increase sperm count and improve motility by taking a folate supplement while trying to conceive.
  • For both: Stop smoking
    Not only is smoking generally bad for your health, doing so while trying to conceive can affect both male and female fertility. It affects how receptive the uterus is to an egg, reduces sperm production and damages its DNA. Smoking is also linked to higher miscarriage risk.

What Our Patients Say About Us

RGI made our dreams come true! And Samantha’s gift of hope….there really aren’t words to express how they changed our lives. We won their grant in 2019 and it has continued to bless us several years later. Every time we make a financial decision I think of SGH and how I don’t know if it’d be possible if it wasn’t for them.
RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope has forever changed our lives in the best way possible because they have given us the greatest gift we could ever get—our sweet daughter. We have this joy of being parents we had previously only dreamed about, and honestly weren’t sure we would ever have. Now, everyday is filled with baby giggles and snuggles, cheering her on to her next milestone (which is currently crawling), and trying to be the best parents we can be. We will never be able to repay RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope, but we will forever be grateful to them and are daily reminded of it.
RGI made it possible for us to experience the joys of becoming parents. There is no greater feeling or love in this world that we’ve experienced than bringing Liam into this world. We truly understand the miracle and blessings babies are. SGOH we will forever feel grateful for. We cannot thank Lisa, Matt and Sam enough for their generosity and helping couples pay towards their IVF journeys. Honestly, SGOH really does provide HOPE. Winning the grant also helped us to feel like this is really happening, it’s meant to be.
Because of Samantha’s Gift of Hope, our dream of having a child came true. We could focus more on each step of the process and keep a positive attitude through it all instead of constantly worrying about what things cost and how we would make it work. Now, our sweet Tenley girl is 1 week old and I continue to be thankful each day for the opportunity Samantha’s Gift of Hope gave us. We are now living out our favorite roles as mom and dad and are filled with so much love for our little girl!
