A recent article addressed 5 common fertility questions with the facts:
Positioning. Â Though no specific intercourse position can guarantee conception, experts recommend a position that allows for deep penetration and maximum cervical contact to promote conception.
Male fertility. Â Though women experience a sharp correlation between fertility and age, men also undergo fertility changes as they age. Â As men age, the health of their sperm deteriorates, which decreases conception ability.
Timing. Â Women are most fertile up to 5 days before ovulation and 1 day following ovulation. Â The peak of a womanâ€™s fertility is typically 2 days prior to ovulation.
Tight underwear. Â Too-tight undies has been linked to decreased sperm count in men. Â However, diet and lifestyle are stronger factors associated with fertility.
Diet. Â Eating well may promote fertility. Â Try to decrease your consumption of processed foods and increase fiber intake to help strengthen your fertility.
