Video Transcription: How to Increase Your Chances of Getting Pregnant
Boost your odds of having a baby with these ten tested tips. You will need a relaxation technique; optimal body fat; whole grains, plant-based protein; organic vegetables; full-fat dairy; daily exercise; folic acid; and acupuncture.
Step 1: Learn a relaxation technique like deep breathing or meditation and practice it twice daily for twenty minutes. 54 women with fertility problems did just that for ten weeks and with a few months, a third of them were pregnant.
Step 2: Determine your body fat percentage. Having too much or too little body fat can hinder conception. 20 to 25 percent is considered healthy. So if you fall out of that range, consult your doctor for a program to correct it through diet and exercise.
Full fat dairy like whole milk may increase a woman’s chances of getting pregnant.
Step 3: Favor foods that are believed to boost fertility like whole grains over simple carbohydrates and plant-based proteins like beans and nuts rather than animal protein. Eat organic vegetables when possible. Pesticides can affect hormone balance, which in turn affect fertility.
Step 4: Limit your alcohol consumption. According to a major Danish study, just five drinks a week lower fertility rates in women; also you’ve no doubt heard this but it bears repeat. Stop smoking. It lowers your odds of getting pregnant. It takes two to make a baby. Ask your guy to cut down on booze, and if he smokes, to quit the sticks. If he’s taking steroids or body building supplements, he should stop those too.
Step 5: Reduce your caffeine intake or consider eliminating it altogether. The jury’s still out but some studies suggest that high caffeine intake reduces female fertility.
Step 6: Don’t’ use an electric blanket which has been associated with the risk of miscarriage in the first month of pregnancy.
Step 7: Exert yourself for at least 30 minutes every day. Research shows that daily exercise can help women conceive possibly by making hormone levels more conducive for pro-creation.
Step 8: Many doctors advise pregnant women to take folic acid to prevent birth defects. But research show that the supplement can help them conceive too. In one study, women who took a daily multivitamin that contain folic acid had a 40 percent lower risk of ovulation problems that those who did not.
Step 9: Limit your used of over-the-counter pain medications which can interfere with ovulation.
Step 10: if you are trying in-vitro fertilization, go for acupuncture. Two studies show that it boosts IVS success rates.
Step 11: Have lots of sex in the winter when sperm counts are higher.
