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.
