There are numerous factors that can impact
the chances of a woman getting pregnant. However, there are ways for a woman to
increase her fertility through natural methods. The purpose of this article is
to discuss some evidence-based natural remedies for increasing fertility in
women through some simple health and lifestyle changes. By applying these
simple changes, a woman could see a natural increase in her fertility and get
Primary amongst factors that increase the
chances of getting pregnant is reducing stress and exercising often. There have
been numerous studies that suggest that women who are in a mentally relaxed
state and in peak physical conditions have a much higher chance of getting
pregnant. There is a way of measuring stress through a method that scientists
call Alpha-amylase which gives medics a biological marker of the stress levels.
Numerous studies have shown that women with a higher level of alpha-amylase
have a lower chance of getting pregnant and conceiving naturally. It’s
therefore important for a woman looking to get pregnant to reduce her stress
levels before looking for alternative IVF
treatments as a decrease in stress has been shown to increase fertility in
Another factor that increases infertility
in women is smoking. This won’t come as much of a surprise for many of you
reading this. Smoking tobacco has been shown to disrupt the hormone levels of a
woman. As well as this, it can make the menopause to occur at a much earlier
age if smoking has been a regular habit over many years, although this can vary
considerably from individual to individual. However, there is undeniable
evidence confirming that there is a significant link between women who smoke
and the early onset of menopause. Giving up tobacco is therefore of paramount
importance for increasing fertility.
Keeping physically active can also have a
dramatic effect on levels of fertility in women. Being either overweight or underweight
can be extremely detrimental to the chances of getting pregnant. So staying a
healthy weight is therefore another key principle to bear in mind when it comes
to improving fertility naturally.
Being underweight makes a woman more likely
to be at risk from ovarian dysfunction as well as premature births. Being
overweight can disrupt a large part of the reproductive process and this
includes the quality of the fertilization as well as embryonic growth, two key
factors when it comes to getting pregnant. Losing weight is therefore an
important point to remember when looking to increase fertility.
The final key factor for naturally
increasing the chances of getting pregnant is increasing physical activity.
Exercise is linked with the other factors mentioned and numerous studies have
shown that women who undertook regular and strenuous physical exercise were
much more likely to get pregnant. As well as this, it also delayed the
menopause. It’s important to keep the
right balance however as excessive exercise without a sufficient calorie intake
can also effect the menstrual cycle and increase the risk of infertility.
