1. Nutrition:

Nutrition is by far the most important step in this phase. In modern times or in recent times, many people are undernourished, despite being overweight or obese. The undernourished body simply will not allow conception or will not support a pregnancy to occur or a pregnancy to continue if it doesn’t have the basic foundation it needs in the body to sustain a pregnancy. You can try conceiving until you are not sure that you are infertile, for this keep tracking your ovulation period and know the ovulationsymptoms. Many women switch to a low-fat, high-fiber diet in an attempt to lose weight and increase health. Weight loss and maintained BMI has been shown to increase fertility, but losing weight to an extent that body is not ready to hold the baby for next 9 months in this way is rarely effective for increasing fertility because it deprives the body of the necessary fats and proteins that are necessary for hormone production. You can try conceiving until you are not sure that you are infertile, for this keep tracking your ovulation period and know the ovulation symptoms

Some nutritional ways to help optimize fertility:

1- Remove or avoid processed foods, sugars processed grains, and starches from the diet. Obtain more nutrient dense carbohydrates from fresh vegetables, some fruits or berries and starchy sources like sweet potatoes and squashes.

2- Increase healthy fats in the diet and especially from sources like coconuts, olive oil, butter, grass-fed meats, coconut oil, olives and eggs, avocado or nuts.

3- Get enough protein in your diet especially from grass-fed meats, eggs, and nuts. This is very important during pregnancy as an adequate protein can help minimize the risk of certain pregnancy complications.

4- Eat a lot of fresh vegetables, especially green leafy varieties like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard lettuce, chard, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and similar veggies.

Each woman is born with millions of immature eggs that wait to be released, normally one at a time, every month. A poor diet can disturb ovulation and can prevent pregnancy. We must eat healthy and nutritious food for the proper growth and development of eggs.
