10 tips to boost your fertility

Try these 10 tips to help boost your fertility:

Know your cycle.  Understand when your fertile window is by determining when you ovulate.

Maintain a healthy weight.  Being either under or overweight can have a negative effect on fertility.

Cut out coffee.  Heavy consumption of caffeine is associated with lower fertility rates.  Try not to drink more than 200 mg of caffeine a day.

Cut the alcohol.  Alcohol consumption is linked to decreased fertility.  Limit your alcohol intake to less than 2 drinks a day.

Use coconut oil.  If you need a lubricant during intercourse, try coconut oil, which won’t affect fertility.

Eat healthy.  Eating a well-balanced diet consisting of vitamins and nutrients can promote fertility.  Try to include iron, zinc and vitamin C as much as possible.

Quit smoking.  Smoking cigarettes can cause DNA damage to a woman’s eggs, which can lead to infertility.

Decrease stress.  High levels of stress, anxiety, and depression can cause you to miss periods and negatively affect your fertility.

Have sex.  It may seem obvious, but regular sex can increase your chances of conceiving.  It may also help regulate sex hormones that control ovulation.

Use the pill.  The birth control pill may help prevent endometriosis and uterine fibroids that can lead to infertility.
