What can I do to increase my fertility?

Becoming a parent is a profound and personal journey for many people, and for those looking to increase their fertility, understanding the factors that influence fertility and taking proactive steps can be invaluable.

In this video, we engage Bailey Weskamp, DNP, WHNP-BC, NCMP at Simmonds, Martin & Helmbrecht of Advantia, to provide expert guidance and insight into enhancing fertility. Below, we’ll explore actionable strategies and evidence-based advice to support individuals on this important path.

Understanding Fertility

The journey toward conception starts with a deep understanding of fertility. Recent research underscores the multifaceted nature of fertility, with various factors influencing reproductive health.

Lifestyle, nutrition, age, and underlying health conditions all play significant roles in fertility. As Bailey emphasizes, understanding fertility begins with appreciating the intricate interplay of these factors and taking proactive steps tailored to individual needs.

Nutrition and Fertility

One crucial aspect of enhancing fertility involves adopting a balanced and nourishing diet. Recent studies, such as those published in the journal Human Reproduction Update, highlight the impact of specific nutrients such as folate, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids on fertility.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats can contribute to reproductive health and support fertility.

Healthy Weight and Physical Activity

Maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in regular physical activity play pivotal roles in promoting fertility. Recent research from the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, emphasizes the linkage between body weight and fertility in both men and women.

Bailey advocates for balanced physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, noting, regular exercise and the maintenance of a healthy weight can positively impact fertility outcomes. It can also help with a healthy delivery.

Stress Management and Fertility

The impact of stress on fertility has garnered significant attention in recent years. Studies, such as those presented in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, have identified stress as a potential factor in fertility issues.

We encourage individuals to explore stress-reducing activities such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and holistic wellness practices. Addressing stress and prioritizing mental well-being can have a positive influence on fertility.

Understanding Ovulation and Fertility

Ovulation plays a crucial role in the reproductive process. Insight into the menstrual cycle and identifying the window of fertility is key.

Recent studies published in the Journal of Human Reproductive Sciences underscore the importance of understanding the ovulation phase. Bailey recommends tracking ovulation and understanding the fertile window can assist in optimizing the chances of conception.

Consulting with a Healthcare Provider

For individuals seeking to increase their fertility, consulting with a healthcare provider is essential. Research from Fertility and Sterility, highlights the value of individualized care and guidance provided by healthcare professionals. Healthcare providers can offer personalized solutions, address underlying health concerns, and provide tailored support to enhance fertility.

Supporting the Journey to Parenthood
