    Are you eagerly waiting to get pregnant? Are you counting on the pregnancy test results each month? Even a small positive sign on a pregnancy test can fill a woman's life with happiness and joy. Planning to initiate a family is a symbol of love and celebration for couples. However, due to numerous reasons intended parents are failing to conceive. Many newlyweds are struggling with conception problems and pregnancy complications.

    What is Fertility?

    Fertility refers to the ability to bear a child through regular sex. A high rate of fertility supports the partner getting pregnant sooner. Reduction in the fertility rate entails conceiving issues.

    What is Infertility?

    Infertility refers to failure to conceive even after continuing unprotected sex for over a year. Both men and women can be affected by infertility. Male infertility can be caused by numerous reasons, such as problems with semen and sperm, cystic fibrosis, genetic factors, etc. Whereas the causes of female infertility range from poor egg quality to chronic conditions like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

    How to Increase Your Fertility?

    You can follow these six steps to increase your fertility and boost your chances of pregnancy:

    1. A healthy diet and weight

    A healthy diet and weight play a vital role in escalating the rate of fertility. You should cut off extra calories and make the most of proteins, and vitamins in your diet. Additionally, you should equally work on achieving a balanced weight too. Especially, women who desire to conceive should mind their BMI. Being overweight or underweight can both have negative effects on your fertility and may even cause complications in pregnancy.

    2. Say a big no to stress

    Stress is another culprit leading to infertility. Excessive stress, anxiety and tension can have negative effects on your potency. Both partners should try not to bring their workload pressure home. You should use time wisely by spending quality time with your partner. Additionally, partners facing fertility issues can try out yoga stress-release postures. Practising breathing exercises and mindfulness can also help reduce your stress levels and improve your mental health.

    3. Put down the cigarettes and alcohol 

    If you are trying to conceive you must quit the habit of smoking and drinking alcohol, especially if you have been facing fertility issues. Regular use of alcohol, drugs and cigarettes can negatively impact your fertility and general health.

    4. Track your ovulation 

    Women should note their mensuration cycle every month. Maintaining an ovulation record will help you in understanding your monthly pattern and observe any issues related to it. Additionally, by tracking your ovulation, you will be able to find out your fertile window ( the days you are most fertile). You can increase your chances of fertility by having unprotected, frequent sex with your partner during ovulation. You can also go for an ovulation test as a second opinion.  

    5. Popup folic acid

    Folic acid is not only beneficial during pregnancy but also before as it can help boost your chances of conception. According to healthcare service providers, consuming folic acid along with essential vitamins helps in strengthens the fertility rate.

    6. Change your lifestyle for a new life

    As you prepare to bring a new life into this world, it's important for you to improve your lifestyle. Quitting unhealthy habits like drinking, smoking and drug abuse is definitely necessary. Additionally, you must make a sleep routine and exercise regularly. Spending some time in nature and listening to soft music can also help in nourishing the senses. You can also go for a walk with your partner or join yoga classes together.

    You can also adopt a healthier lifestyle with Mylo Preconception Care Routine which includes workout, naturopathy and mindfulness sessions along with expert consultations. This holistic approach can help you improve metabolic health, regulate periods, maintain hormonal imbalance and boost your chances of conception.

    Staying happy and fulfilled is vital to keep your mind and body refreshed. Try to always stay positive and lead the right way of life to help your body produce the right hormones for conceiving.
