7 FERTILITY FACTS PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT


Introduction • Infertility is a topic that is surrounded with a lot of taboos. This prevents free discussion about the topic, which consequently leads to the propagation of many myths. For example, there still exists a belief that only the female partner is to blame if a couple fails to conceive naturally. However, statistics do not support this assumption. It has been found that among couples who seek fertility treatment, the fault lies with the male partner in over one-third of the cases. Similarly, a couple is tagged infertile if they are not able to conceive a child in the first couple of attempts. However, it’s perfectly normal for a healthy and fertile couple to attempt pregnancy for several months without success. The key is to keep trying in accordance with the female partner’s ovulation cycle.


Fertility issues affect men and women equally, its gender neutral. • In over 30% of infertile couples, male-factor infertility is the primary cause. Female-factor infertility is the main cause in another 30% of cases with the remaining infertility issues being a combination of both.


Getting pregnant can take time, even for young, fertile & healthy couples. • In any given month, a healthy and fertile couple only has a 20% chance of getting pregnant. Trying to conceive for several months without success is considered normal and not a sign of anything problematic.


Too much of anything is bad, even exercise. • While it’s important to be healthy, excessive exercise should be avoided as it can affect fertility in men as well as women. Men especially should be careful of testicular heat as it can harm their sperm quality.


Pre-pregnancy health is important. • The diet, health and lifestyle of each partner in the period leading up to the pregnancy can have an impact on the child’s long-term health, affect their adulthood and even stretch into the next generation.


Excess weight can affect fertility. • Obese and overweight women struggle with irregular menstrual cycles. Irregular refers to cycles that last 31 days or longer or skip a month. This causes infrequent ovulation, which makes getting pregnant difficult.


Lifestyle choices influence fertility. • Lifestyle choices are proven to affect a man or woman's ability to conceive a child. Before seeking expert assistance, it’s a good idea to evaluate everyday habits and see how they might interfere with fertility.


Diet plays a key role in fertility: • A fertility diet can help a woman conceive faster. While fertilityaffecting factors like genetics and age cannot be controlled, dietary choices can be. For e.g., avoid processed and sugary foods as they can affect ovulation.
