  • If you are overweight – BMI of 25+ – losing weight will help to increase your fertility
  • Get plenty of sleep to avoid irregular menstrual cycles
  • A lack of sleep leads to weight gain
  • Weight gain leads to ovulation problems
  • You should get at least 8 hours of sleep to increase your fertility

Improving Your Fertility Health

A diet and fertility study has examined the impact of nutrition a woman’s fertility.

  • Folic acid
  • Vitamin B12
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Low-sodium canned or frozen veggies
  • Herbs and spices instead of salt
  • Lemon juice, citrus zest, or hot chilies for extra flavor and no sodium
  • Canned fruits packed in juice or water – not syrup
  • Non-fat, plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream
  • Healthy vegetable oils instead of butter
  • Half wheat and half white flour
  • Puree sweet potatoes, carrots, or cauliflower and keep in freezer for easy use in soups and casseroles
  • Instead of alcohol – infuse cranberries, pomegranate arils, or orange slices into sparkling water
  • Plant-based foods
  • Protein-rich foods
  • Healthy fats
  • A bit of full-fat dairy products

Nutrition and Fertility

Nutrition plays an essential role in improving the chances of conception and supporting a healthy pregnancy. Diet matters greatly before pregnancy and solidifies healthy eating habits during pregnancy.

A Healthy Body Mass Index (BMI)

A healthy body weight is essential to increasing your chances of becoming pregnant. Strive to achieve and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI) to keep your reproductive cycle in balance. A BMI of 19 to 24 indicates a healthy weight. Anything above 24 or below 19 may be hindering your chances of ovulation and conception.
