In this fast paced environment, most of us take our health matters for granted. Like we all have this notion in our head- want to get pregnant, just have sex? Isn't it? But reality is quite far from this thought. A minor stress can affect your body and misbalances the hormones. And if you planning to conceive then go through below health habit which can affect your fertility in many ways.

1. Keep a watch on what you eat

One of the biggest factor of infertility is consumption of unhealthy food. It can affect your reproductive cycle which will cause in occasional or no ovulation. In this case, try to take protein in your diet.

How to increase fertility in women

Switch from beef, pork, chicken to vegetable protein sources like nuts and cooked dried beans.

2. Water Water Everywhere!

It is advised to consume enough water to stay hydrated. The cervical fluid (which helps the sperm to locate the target egg) gets sluggish when you don't take enough water. For maintaining urine color consume plenty of water.

3. Quit drinking and smoking

It is advisable not to consume alcohol if you are trying to conceive, as there is no evidence that wine or any alcohol affects fertility. Along with it, ditch the habit of smoking for fertility as well as baby. Smoking makes the woman prone to ectopic pregnancies.

4. Loads of sex

Your pregnancy chances will be high if you are regularly indulging yourself into sex. Experts advice that if you want to conceive then you should have sex at least once a day or every other day especially when you are most fertile either before or after ovulation.

5. Say no to lube

Lubricants can actually kill the sperm before it hit the egg. You can use canola oil or sperm friendly lubricant if you want to be comfortable during intercourse.

6. Control the stress

Trying to conceive can be stressful. Give your best in reducing and managing the work tension as well as anxiety. You can also indulge yourself into meditation, yoga and acupuncture.

7. Ovulation kit

An ovulation test can assess the time when you are ovulating. It will help you and give you an idea when to have sex. But these kits are not 100% reliable.

8. Check Your Weight

For having balanced reproductive cycle, make sure you are neither underweight nor overweight. Do check your BMI and ensure that you rank within 19 to 24 which is an indicator of healthy weight.

How to increase chances of conceiving

If it is above the range then discuss it with your health care advisor.

9. Avoid Douching

Douching actually cleanses natural, protective vagina bacteria, shift the balance and can also put woman at bacterial vaginosis risk. Symptoms of this infection are greyish discharge and fishy odour. It can also lead to preterm labour or there are chances of marriage and infertility. Consult your health advisor if you find any other symptom like burning, itchiness, sores or unusual discharge.

10. His health is also important

Same thing applies on your man as well. Poor diet, alcohol or cigarettes can result in lower sperm count.Due to smoke and heavy alcohol intake can contribute in chromosomal damage in sperm. Take enough proteins, mineral selenium and vitamin E and C as they help in producing healthy sperm.
