To ovulate and release an egg every month on time and to maintain the regular menstrual cycle, there is a complex fusion of certain hormones.

You can add Vitamins A, C, and E, as these Vitamins are antioxidants. The following foods are rich in these antioxidants:

  • N-acetylcysteine- chicken, duck, pork, turkey, dairy, eggs, broccoli, onions and red peppers
  • Lycopene- guava, grapefruit, Sharon fruit, tomatoes, and watermelon
  • Zinc- beef, chicken, lamb, pork, spinach, oysters, pumpkin seeds, nuts
  • Myo-inositol found in beans, brown rice, lentils, citrus fruits, nuts, and seeds may help improve the follicular environment for the egg

3. Balancing estrogen: 

The imbalance of estrogen can affect the fertility of both men and women. Foreign estrogens are vastly found in our water and in our soil (as a result of pesticides) as well as in stuff and materials, such as plastic food and drink packaging that we use in our daily life.

Some Gut-friendly bacteria from live yogurts, kefir, and fermented foods will help your gut draw nutrients from your food and flush out anything that your body doesn't need inside. Dietary fiber should be added in the diet that encourages regular elimination, preventing estrogens being reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Some foods help to increase fertility and help in getting pregnant faster.

Alcohol is very harmful while trying to conceive. It will have very adverse effect on your ovulation and also on your fertility window. In my opinion you should completely avoid all kinds of alcohol for this period.
