6 ways to boost fertility in women!
Couples thinking of ways to increase fertility
Taking good care of your body is certainly a good way to start in optimizing your fertility especially if you are a woman. But, are there other ways you can do to increase the odds of getting pregnant?
If you are someone who is in a good perfect health and is having a regular sex without having to use any birth control or contraceptives, you can expect that things will transpire the way you imagined.
However, if you and your partner are still in doubt, you can boost the odds by knowing different ways on how to actually get the things done.
Always Monitor Ovulation
Monitoring ovulation to better increase fertility for women
The regular ovulation cycle of women is usually two weeks before the arrival of their periods. This being said, it is difficult to determine the ovulation cycle of women who have irregular cycles but the estimated time is usually around 12-16 days.
According to Dr. Mary Ellen Pavone a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist Northwestern Medicine's Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility division in Chicago, the best way to increase the odds of fertility is to know the body, which in this case, can be done by always monitoring ovulation cycle.
It is important to note, as a journal published in Nature would say, that there is a great deviation in the lengths of people who menstruate. This is also to mention the time and duration at which the ovulation changes could happen in a person’s life.
A method from Livescience would be to have home ovulation-prediction kits. This works by reducing the “guessing” to figure out when a woman will ovulate.
The kits works by testing your urine sample for what is called the luteinizing hormone--- considered to be a gonadotrophic hormone due to its role in controlling the function of ovaries in females. You can absolutely purchase it at drug stores located near you.
Watch Out for the Weight

One of the things you should be wary about is to watch out for your weight, especially if you are a female. If this turns out to be the case, you will raise the probability of putting a “bun in the oven if you slim down” as a blog in WebMD would describe it.
The thing is, an extra pound decreases the chances of pregnancy and you will mostly likely to have irregular menstrual cycles and the effect of it is that you will be unable to ovulate at all.
On the other side of the coin, being very thing can have some impacts to fertility as well. If this is the case, you will have irregular periods and the chances of having a preterm birth is very high. The newborn baby will also inherit a low birth weight.
Take a Prenatal Vitamin
Vitamins to boost the odds of fertility of women
Good way to boost your infertility can sometimes be there but often forsaken. As many doctors would recommend, any woman who wishes to conceive can jumpstart their journey by taking a prenatal vitamin even before becoming pregnant.
This would equate that if you would be agreeable to it, you can stay on it while you are on the stage of pregnancy.
In connection to this, a woman can also take a daily vitamin. However, a note on this, as Pavone would warn, is that the vitamin should atleast contain 400 micrograms per day of folic acid---a vitamin B that is used to make new cells for the body.
The CDC or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages women of reproductive age to consume the said dosage amount of vitamin containing the acid so that it can help prevent major problems like birth defects
Have the right Amount of Sex
Keeping in check the amount of sex to prepare the body for fertility
Having sex is quite good but as the saying goes, “everything should be in moderation” especially if you want to increase the chances of you getting pregnant.
One way of doing this is to set a good schedule for sex. You and your partner can do it every other day from a few days prior to ovulation until a few days after,” says Amelia McLennan, MD, a maternal fetal medicine specialist at UC Davis Medical Center.
Maclennan would add that having sex will not impede the chances of fertility but other studies have shown that regular activity can lead to the decline in the sperm count of a man.
If you are wondering how to do the sex, there is actually no formula for that. WebMD stated that position by which you and your partner do does not affect the odds of conceiving a baby.
Have a Break from Workouts
Having a break from workout can increase the fertility rate for women
To be physically active is something you should do to help your body prepare for your pregnancy. That is one fact and it has been reported that it helps to reduce the risk of fertility problems. However, engaging in too much of this physical workout can be too detrimental and can greatly interfere with your ovulation according to Live Science.
If you want to increase the odds of increasing your fertility, it would be best to heed the advice of doctors who have reported that there are actually great menstrual disturbances for those people who exercise heavily. Thus, a solution to be able to conceive is to take a break from the workout.
Eat Healthy Foods
Eating healthy foods boosts the chances of getting fertile
This one is pretty much self-explanatory but it bears to be underscored nonetheless.
The point is, eating a lot of healthy foods, especially if they are packed with vitamins needed for fertility, can help the body for the pregnancy stage.
Research has shown that eating variety of fruits and vegetables contain the necessary nutrients good for fertility.
Live Science suggests that aside from taking a supplement containing the integral
folic acid, a woman who wants to increase her fertility can do so by eating ‘leafy foods” such as broccoli, beans and others.
