Based on recent statistics it has been found that of over 195,000 million Nigerian population 20 – 25% couples is said to suffer from infertility problems and childlessness.
Sadly here in Africa, women are perceived to be responsible for infertility problems and this has increasingly resulted to a lot them seeking treatments from the wrong places, and in the process damaging their reproductive organs.
If you are pressured and have long been battling childlessness for 2 – 10 years now, i encourage you to try these expert-proven and safe ways to boost your fertility for conception.
- Maintain a Healthy Weight:
For the purpose of conception and as a woman, you should aim at maintaining a healthy weight because being overweight/obese or underweight can result to ovulatory problems thereby resulting to infertility and difficulty in getting pregnant.
This happens because for a woman to conceive she certainly has to ovulate and release healthy eggs every month, in which if she’s either overweight or below the expected normal weight, pregnancy may not be achieved.
To ensure your weight is healthy for getting pregnant, you have to target your BMI (or body mass index also known as total body fat) to always fall within the ranges of 19 – 24 kg/m2 and also try to avoid fried and fatty foods containing hydrogenated fats, or foods with too much carbohydrate.
- Get Under the Sheets Regularly!
It takes two to tango, you are familiar with that term aren’t you?
To hasten conception it’s important you understand that it is not going to happen any other way than through sex.
I understand some would argue that they have been doing this yet nothing…
One time in our BabyMaking Clinic Abuja office, during a one-on-one consultation with a female client i shockingly realized that she has a bizarre disposition towards sex and admitted she doesn’t really enjoy it and each time she couldn’t wait for it to be over.
Unfortunately this was very tough for the husband, as i speak with you today the marriage is no longer in existence.
The point here is that you have to make out time for consummate lovemaking with your partner for at least a maximum of 3 to 4 times weekly.
And if your husband is occupationally too busy or always travelling out of the country or offshore, my dear you have to sit with him and remind him the delicacy of your age as a woman and how it can affect fertility for conception.
- Minimize Pressure:
With tension mounting on you on failed attempts at conception including those coming from in-laws and extended family members over the issue of childlessness. If care is not taken overtime this can pool a lot of stress and compound your infertility problem.
Stress is a subtle cause of hormonal imbalance and anovulation (lack of ovulation) in women.
Scientists at the University of California Berkeley in the U.S found that when a person is stressed, a particular hormone known as “glucocorticoid” (cortisol) will be released into the circulation and stop the work of Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone, a hormone that is responsible for initiating the process of ovulation in the female body leading to infertility.
- Cleanse Your Body System:
We live in an age where almost everybody is exposed to all kinds of harmful chemicals and toxins such as: fumes, pesticides, insecticides, bleaching cream, artificial sweeteners in food, aspartame, heavy metals and the rest of them.
All these are toxins, and find their way into the human body through common routes like: the skin, food, drinking water, lungs and endanger your reproductive health and fertility.
For a couple trying to conceive, this can create a cascade hormones balances and disrupt your entire endocrine system which normally helps to regulate and send out hormones at specific target sites where they are needed for reproductive action, and then unfortunately spirally into different fertility-related problems as outline below:
- Delayed conception
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome/PCOS
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibroids
- Dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation)
- Hormonal imbalance (high prolactin)
- Male infertility etc.
NOTE: If you suspect you are having any of the fertility problems, then you need to see a qualified professional as soon as possible.
- Know Your Ovulation Period:
Ovulation is a period a woman is most fertile for conception. Being aware of your ovulation cycle is important for getting pregnant, it’s so important i wish there are more words to emphasize this.
Without knowing your ovulation, your efforts to conceive could become a chore. You need to invest some time and learn how this process works biologically.
Here’s how to go about it:
For a woman with a regular 28-day menstrual cycle, her ovulation day is normally on Day 14 counting from the first day she started seeing her menstrual period. For such woman, the ideal days to have intercourse are 5 – 6 days before her ovulation day, and not necessarily on the day she’s ovulating as the make sperm can survive up to 5 days inside a woman.
On the other hand, if you are not sure at all or your cycle is outside the normal 28-Day cycle, this doesn’t mean you are “abnormal”. If means you are different so what you should do is get a urine or saliva-ovulation test kits from a nearby pharmacy and track your ovulation, it’s that simple.
6. Take Fertility-Boosting Foods:
