How Does Your Diet Help You Conceive Naturally

How Does Your Diet Help You Conceive Naturally

As times change and the world moves rapidly towards modernization, natural conception has become difficult for couples due to changes in their lifestyles and diets. About 15% of couples deal with fertility issues, making the road to parenthood a huge challenge. However, there are a few moderations one could make to their diet to increase the chances of fertility. Let us discuss them here!

1. Hydrate: The first and foremost solution to any problem, whatsoever, is to increase your water intake. The advantages of doing so are innumerable and will always benefit you in the long run. As for pregnancy, water helps create more cervical mucus, which is essential for egg fertilization.

 

2. Eat Foods Rich In Antioxidants: Antioxidants, such as folate and zinc, boost the fertility of both men and women. Owing to antioxidants, one can naturally reduce the number of free radicals which damage the egg cells and the sperm in the body.

 

3. Switch To Full-Fat Dairy: While high-fat dairy foods lower the risk of infertility, high consumption of low-fat dairy may increase this risk. A study showed that those who consumed one serving of low-fat dairy were 27% less likely to be infertile.

 

4. Consume Caffeine Wisely: Caffeine, when consumed in large quantities, like over 500 milligrams daily, hampers ovulation and the chances of conceiving naturally. Caffeine has also been shown to increase the chances of miscarriage. Try to be moderate with your consumption instead of entirely cutting it off.

 

5. Eat A Bigger Breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should not be skipped at any cost. Having a bigger and healthier breakfast has been shown to improve the cases of infertility amongst several people. Eating a substantial breakfast helps increase the chances of natural conception by up to 30%. For people with moderate PCOS, having a healthy breakfast reduces insulin levels by 8% and testosterone levels by 50%.

 

6. Be Mindful Of Your Carbs: It is essential to follow a diet lower in carbs, especially if you have PCOS. Managing your carb intake provides beneficial effects on some aspects of PCOS. A diet with lower carbs will help you manage your weight, reduce insulin levels, and aid you with fat loss, while helping you menstruate regularly, thereby increasing the chances of natural conception.

 

7. Avoid Trans Fats: Consuming healthy fats is the basis of every balanced diet, and if you’re trying to get pregnant naturally, you should avoid trans fats altogether. Trans fats are known to negatively impact ovulation levels and must be avoided.

 

8. Eat More Fiber: Increasing the fibre intake when one is trying to conceive naturally may significantly improve their chances. Fibre helps remove excess hormones and keeps the blood sugar levels in control, thereby increasing the chances of natural conception.

 

9. Use Diverse Protein Sources In Your Diet: Protein is an integral part of your diet. However, replacing animal protein with vegetable sources of protein is linked to a reduced risk of infertility. Consider replacing some of the proteins in your diet with protein from vegetables, beans, lentils, nuts, and low-mercury fish.

 

10. Add Multivitamins To Your Diet: You may be less likely to experience ovulatory infertility and problems with natural conception if you add multivitamins to your diet. For women trying to get pregnant, a multivitamin containing folate may be especially beneficial.

 

Having a healthy diet and peace of mind is vital for a healthy body and your reproductive system, and helps increase the chances of natural conception. It is therefore important to eat a nutritious diet and make positive lifestyle changes to boost fertility. Thus, it is important to make healthy lifestyle choices and make alterations to your diet to increase the chances of a natural conception.

I have made all the pregnancy visits to Dr. Amita Shah, and my end-to-end experience with her has been wonderful. I was someone who was absolutely terrified of needles, but with Dr. Amita Shah's constant guidance and good consultation, I could overcome a lot of my stress and worries related to delivery as well as during the pregnancy phase. Both the doctor and her clinic staff are helpful and amiable. She was all ears when it came to even the tiniest of details and issues, listened calmly and resolved all my issues. She was also constantly available via phone and WhatsApp to clear any doubts that popped up in my head in addition to the in-clinic visits where she eased my mind and resolved plenty of my concerns. At the time of my delivery, she offered complete mental support and her presence itself offered calmness to me. I highly recommend Dr. Amita Shah for her professionalism, empathy and supportive attitude. By God's grace, we are blessed with a baby girl in December, and I have been on the path to a smooth and fast recovery since then.
