Fertility and Lifestyle

When you decide it’s time to start trying to conceive, it’s worth evaluating a few things related to your overall lifestyle.Take our short, eight question fertility test based on lifestyle to see what areas need improvement in order to conceive a baby.

  • Are you eating properly? Are you taking the necessary amount of vitamins and nutrients every day?
  • Are you smoking?
  • Are you taking drugs?
  • Are you drinking excessively?
  • Are you over/underweight?
  • Do you exercise enough?
  • Do you have high levels of stress?
  • Do you have a healthy sexual life?

If you are happy with the answers given above, then you agree a common sense and a moderate approach to things are probably what’s needed to lead a healthy lifestyle.

infertilityThere are many reasons for infertility - one in every ten couples of reproductive age is affected by this discomfort. It's also true that more than half succeed in their efforts to conceive after a reasonable period of time. Infertility is a daunting condition that can affect not only your private life, but your social life as well. It affects some people so deeply that they resign themselves to the prospect of never conceiving and seek counselling.
