Lifestyle changes to make you a more Fertile You.

It’s true, our different lifestyle choices can drastically affect our reproductive systems and overall fertility health. Unfortunately, not everyone knows this. We want everyone to understand the importance of taking care of your fertile health early on, so that you can significantly maximise and control your fertility potential and work to achieve positive fertility outcomes. 

At Fertile You we want to help you take care of your fertile health, by providing you with guidance throughout your fertility journey. We believe that fertility starts from within. We want to provide you with most natural and organic ways to help boost your fertility, so let’s begin with figuring out what’s happening inside!

Infertility may be more common than you think. About 10-15% of couples face issues when trying to conceive. It is important to realise that you are not alone and that there are many ways that can help.

One of the best ways to start, is to positively change and adapt to healthy lifestyle and living habits. Many lifestyle factors can negatively impact fertility, even from a young age. This is why it is vital to recognise healthy habits early on. And guess what! It’s not just your fertile health that will benefit, we can bet you’ll start feeling a whole lot better overall too!

Here’s 6 easy & natural lifestyle changes you can adopt to help you become a more fertile you. 

1. Eat Foods That Are Rich In Antioxidants 

The foods we consume contribute to our fertile health. Whether you are taking precautions for the future, trying to conceive or are already pregnant, it is vital to consume foods that are high in antioxidants and nutrients. Try adding spinach into your pasta, sprinkling goji berries into your morning smoothie or popping a few tasty blueberries into your snack routine, in-between meals. Our Fertile You Superfood Female Elixir contains the top fertility boosting superfoods which will work to continuously benefit your fertility overall. 

2. Get Active 

Staying active and maintaining regular exercise not only has many benefits for your mental and physical wellbeing but your fertile health too.  Fertile You recommends keeping exercise moderate when trying to conceive, as excessive, and high intensity exercise may negatively affect fertility amongst some individuals.

3. Self Care/ Reduce Stress

We hate stress, but it’s sometimes hard to avoid!  We know that sometimes our fertility journeys can be very challenging and stressful but unfortunately stress can take a toll on our fertility. That’s why, it is so important to take time for yourself and practice self-care. Some beneficial remedies known to relieve fertility stress are acupuncture and massages. Try get out of the house and book yourself into some yoga, chat to a friend over lunch or practice meditation.

4. Cut Caffeine + Alcohol + Smoking

Those who consume high amounts of alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes have an increased chance of experiencing infertility issues. It is important to limit your consumption of these substances in order to maximise your fertility potential. Narcotics are also a big no when trying to conceive! 

5. Maintain A Healthy Weight 

Maintaining a healthy and stable weight by adopting healthy eating habits and staying active will positively benefit fertility health and your overall wellbeing. Everybody and every lifestyle is different, but you should listen to your body and it’s needs. Keep it happy by nourishing it with healthy, nutritious & organic foods, exercising frequently & drinking lots of water.

6. Sleep 

There is a strong link between fertility and sleeping patterns. It is essential to make sure you are trying your best to get an adequate night's sleep. Having sufficient sleep quality and quantity may positively enhance your fertility by regulating hormones that may trigger ovulation.
