Facts about infertility, how many people are affected, and some causes:
  • Infertility is estimated to affect as many as 186 million people worldwide.
  • 35% of infertility cases are related to the male, 35% to the female, 20% to combined causes between the male and female, and 10% remain undiagnosed.
  • Irregular or abnormal ovulation accounts for approximately 25 percent of all female infertility problems.
  • 12% of all infertility cases are a result of the woman either weighing too little or too much.
  • It is possible for women with body weight disorders to reverse their infertility by attaining and maintaining a healthy weight.

Ovulation problems may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Tumor or cyst
  • Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Thyroid gland problems
  • Excess weight
  • Stress
  • Intense exercise

Foods That Can Help Increase Your Fertility:
  • Complex Carbs- Good carbs (those containing fiber) are digested more slowly and have a more gradual effect on your insulin levels and blood sugar than bad carbs. Studies have shown that high insulin levels can inhibit ovulation, so avoid bad carbs and focus on the good ones! Examples of some complex carbs include fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains.
  • Unsaturated Fats- Avoiding trans fats and focusing on only unsaturated fats will help to reduce insulin resistance that comes from eating too many trans fats. By steadying your insulin levels, you will avoid metabolic disturbances that can affect ovulation.
  • Plant Protein- Try getting more of your protein from plants instead of red meats. Some examples of plant proteins include beans, nuts, seeds, and tofu.
  • Whole Milk- Studies have shown that women who have more low-fat dairy in their diet tend to have more trouble getting pregnant, so make sure to add some full-fat dairy products to your every day diet and get rid of those low-fat products.
  • Multivitamins- Take a daily multivitamin that contains at least 400 micrograms of folic acid and 40 to 80 milligrams of iron. Studies have shown that women who took daily multivitamins containing at least 400 milligrams of folic acid were 40% less likely to experience infertility.
  • Limit Caffeine- Moderate your coffee, tea, and alcohol consumption. High caffeine intake can interfere with conception.

Other Things to Keep in Mind:
  • Fertility Weight- The ‘fertility zone’ for a woman's weight ranges from a BMI of 18.5 to 24. Being too thin can cause you to not produce enough estrogen and being too overweight can cause you to produce too much. Unbalanced estrogen levels can affect your ovulation.
  • Moderate Exercise- Moderate but consistent exercise has been proven to increase fertility in women. Try brisk walking for 30 minutes to an hour, yoga, aerobics, or cycling.

We understand that infertility is no easy subject to talk about. We also understand that infertility is not an inconvenience, it’s a medically diagnosed disease of the reproductive system that impairs the body’s ability to reproduce. For some cases, a well balanced diet and an overall healthy lifestyle could greatly affect the chances of conceiving. For others, it’s not so simple. What we want to do is focus on achieving the best health you can possibly achieve in order to see if a natural solution works for you.
