If you’re trying to have a baby, it seems like everyone you know has some tip they promise will help you conceive. If you’re thinking about having a baby, though, you should get most of your fertility advice from a doctor. Doctors will be able to assess whether you actually have a medical problem, and based on the diagnosis, give you the help that you need. In the meantime, there are some things you can do to boost your chances of having a baby.
Maintain a healthy weight
Obesity can cause a variety of health problems such as heart disease and diabetes, but most people don’t know that it can also impact fertility. Being overweight (or underweight) can make conception more difficult, and could even affect the health of your baby if you manage to conceive. Before you start trying to conceive, consult a doctor to see if you’re at a healthy weight. Being overweight can also be a sign of other health problems, some of which are related to your fertility—like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Cut down on caffeine and alcohol
Some doctors have found that having 500 milligrams of caffeine a day could reduce your chances of conceiving. Other studies have found that women who drink two or more alcoholic beverages a day decrease their fertility a whopping 60%. Cut down on your caffeinated beverages and limit your intake of alcohol.
There are plenty of fertility supplements available to women who want to have children. Some people use a combination to improve their chances. Taking a prenatal vitamin usually does not increase your chance of conceiving, but it’s always a good idea, as prenatal vitamins prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy once you conceive. Fertility Nutraceuticals, LLC offers an innovative prenatal vitamin product, FERTINATAL Plus, which helps women over 35 to conceive via the addition of fertility-enhancing DHEA. If you are a woman over 35 trying to get pregnant “the natural way,” FERTINATAL Plus may be a good addition to your healthy diet.
Cigarette smoke isn’t just harmful for babies – it can also decrease your ability to conceive. Smoking is also known to reduce sperm production in men and lower the quality of the sperm. A couple trying to conceive should stop smoking.
Whether you are experiencing issues or not, the four recommendations above can help improve your health and the likelihood of conception.
Fertility Nutraceuticals, LLC, releases FERTINATAL Plus®, fertility-boosting prenatal vitamins specifically for would-be mothers over 35
Fertility Nutraceuticals, LLC, announced the release of FERTINATAL Plus®, a prenatal vitamin product designed to meet the special nutritional needs of women over 35 who are trying to get pregnant. Currently, no other prenatal vitamins on the market contain fertility-supporting benefit of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to would-be mothers over 35, whose natural fertility may be on the wane.
FERTINATAL Plus® was developed based on the success of the company’s flagship product, FERTINATAL® DHEA. Introduced in 2012, FERTINATAL® DHEA helps women with low ovarian reserve get pregnant more easily with fertility treatments, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Since its launch, many IVF centers and reproductive endocrinologists (doctors specializing in female fertility) have started incorporating FERTINATAL® DHEA into advanced fertility treatments they offer.
While women between 35 and 40 may not yet experience the same level of decline in ovarian reserve as women over 40, female fertility does start declining at around age 35. FERTINATAL Plus® was developed to address this unique need of women over 35 who don’t need the help of reproductive endocrinologist, but want to improve their chance of spontaneous pregnancy: FERTINATAL Plus® provides a smaller amount of fertility-boosting DHEA, along with a carefully considered mix of pregnancy-supporting prenatal vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid, calcium and iron.
According to Fertility Nutraceuticals, LLC, FERTINATAL Plus® uses the same pharmaceutical-grade, micronized DHEA as used in FERTINATAL®. The serving size of DHEA is smaller because women in this age range typically do not need the same amount of DHEA as women over 40, whose ovarian reserve is naturally much lower. Like FERTINATAL®, FERTINATAL Plus® follows all the manufacturing and quality control standards established by the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR), the New York-based fertility center that introduced DHEA supplementation into fertility treatments. CHR, which advised Fertility Nutraceuticals, LLC, throughout the development process of the product, endorses FERTINATAL Plus® for women over 35.
FERTINATAL Plus® is available exclusively from Fertility Nutraceuticals’ online store, as well as offices of select obstetricians and gynecologists. A 12-week supply of fertility-supporting prenatal vitamins is priced at $69.00.
