Some simple things I've learned

Staying healthy is always important for our well-being and our fertility. It is even more important when we are trying to conceive. I was surprised to learn that one of the major causes of infertility is poor health. The reports show this is from our diet's to our lifestyle.

One of the easiest ways to enhance our chances of getting pregnant is eating a well-balanced diet. It's kinda like a natural fertility treatment. Eating a diet rich in fruits, veggies, and low fat dairy and protein, will provide us the nutrients needed to keep our bodies and our reproductive system working well. If you eat a lot of take-out and processed food, STOP. They don't offer much nutritional value and are loaded with fat.

I will be exercising at least three times a week. Cardio exercise will help get your blood circulating, which will get the blood flowing to your reproductive system, which will help regulate ovulation and hormone levels. I've also read that strength training to turn fat into muscle will make it easier for my body to carry a baby.

I also read that most workplaces have some sort of toxins, some have more than others. Exposure to harsh chemicals, like radiation and pesticides, can have an impact on infertility. Chemical solvents, can increase a woman's chances of miscarriage.
