Tips to improve your fertility

In case you're looking to have a baby and have not yet succeeded, there are some things you can do to improve your reproductive health. Here are some tips to improve your fertility so you can become a mom.

What are the chances of getting pregnant without help?

If you are going through a situation where you need the help of Assisted Reproduction to achieve your dream of becoming a mother, you should know that you are not the only one and that this is much more common than it seems. In fact, a healthy 30-year-old woman has only a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month.

As you can see, the chances of having a baby without help are low, it doesn't always happen on the first try, and in many cases it can take up to a year to get pregnant. However, there are some things you can do to promote better reproductive health and increase your chances of becoming a mother.

First, forget what you've heard around there


If you've heard that having children is a piece of cake, forget it. If your friend, neighbour or family members have mentioned that you just have to keep trying, that sooner or later it will happen and that you just need to wait, or any other phrase like that, forget them! According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 6 women in the world, almost 200 million, will need the help of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) in order to get pregnant and have a baby.

A woman's ovarian reserve diminishes from birth, and that this accelerates even more after the age of 35. Incredible, don't you think? Based on this, the WHO itself tells us that, if a woman under 35 has been trying to get pregnant by having unprotected sex for at least a year and has still not succeeded, she should consider getting help from reproductive specialists.

How to improve your reproductive health?

If you have already decided to become a mum and have tried, but still can't make it, these tips can help you. One of the most important things you can do is to have healthy habits such as exercising at least 30 minutes a day, drinking water regularly and eating a balanced diet.


In addition to this, it is important that you try to lead a healthier lifestyle through different habits such as the following:

  • Reach a healthy weight: Your Body Mass Index (BMI) should be between 18.5 and 24.9.
  • Improve your eating habits: Include more fruit and vegetables in your diet and reduce the amount of processed foods.
  • Eliminate alcohol consumption.
  • Quit smoking, if you do.
  • Reduce your caffeine intake.

In addition to these fertility tips, it will also be helpful if you can start taking prenatal vitamins, with at least 400 micrograms of folic acid every day, as soon as you decide to start trying to conceive. This will help reduce the risk of developmental abnormalities in your baby.

Healthy body, healthy mind

You can change everything, the way you eat, your exercise habits, etc., but your mental and emotional health must also be in tip-top shape. Remember that the definition of health is "A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".

This means that your psycho-emotional health is just as important as your physical health, that what you are feeling and going through is completely valid, your worries, joys, stresses from daily activities, all add up and count on this journey to find your baby. The fact that you are in a state of mental wellbeing will also help to improve your reproductive health, bringing your body the balance it requires.
