can be caused by a whole lot of issues. It is important that the situation is
medically evaluated before jumping into conclusions. It is found that most of
the couples trying to conceive do so within one year. And 22% women get
pregnant within the first month of trying. So if you find or feel that you’ve infertility
issues, certain simple rules can help you turn the tables and become
The Very First Thing to
Ensure is a Proper Physical Examination
There can be physical problems that debar you from getting pregnant.
Masses or cysts in the pelvic region can make you temporarily infertile. Some
low-grade vaginal infections or sexually transmitted diseases can prevent you
from successfully conceiving. The following conditions also prevent pregnancy
and should be treated first:
- Ovarian cyst
- Inflammation in the
Sex Should Happen
After the egg of the woman is released from the ovary it is
available for fertilization
only within 22-24 hours from ovulation. And the man’s sperm can survive within
the woman’s reproductive tract for 48-72 hours. Since the egg and the sperm
should meet for the creation of the embryo, the couple is advised to have an
intercourse every 72 hours during the ovulation period.
Ejaculate in Every 2-3
Apart from maintaining this intercourse schedule during the
ovulation period, it is important that the man ejaculates at least once every
two-three days. This is required to maintain a healthy sperm supply.
Ensure a Healthy
Lifestyle and Avoid Stress
An all-round healthy lifestyle can naturally alleviate
issues. Numerous researches support this view and this also ensures a
healthy offspring too. Stress can hugely interfere with the reproductive
function. At the onset, it can right away diminish the libido and in an extreme
may well stop in the woman. So, learn to relax. Cut fat, excess sugar and
Testicles Should be Kept
The testicles are supposed to remain cool and that is why it
is positioned away from the body. This should be remembered as heat can result
in the natural death of the sperm. So hot tubs and whirlpools are best avoided
and staying in boxer shorts is not only comfortable but healthy for your
reproductive function as well. Dipping the testicles in cold water can be very
beneficial for infertility problems. The man also needs to check whether he has
varicose veins that negatively interfere with temperature regulation.
Elevate Hips and Stay
It is a good idea to stay in bed after intercourse as the
leakage of sperm from the vagina can be prevented in this way. So it is
important to relax and lie down. It also helps when a pillow is placed under
the hips for the same reason.
Eliminate Smoking, Alcohol
Smoking not only lowers the sperm count, it impairs
fertility in women too. So stay away from smoke and smoking during conception
as it damages the developing embryo. Rash alcohol intake and drug abuse
disturbs hormonal balance and impairs fertility. For e.g., marijuana enhance
the secretion of prolactin hormone that cause the breasts of both men and women
to secrete milk which has disastrous effect on reproduction.
Do Away with Lubricants
The suppositories, gels and liquids that are commonly used
to lubricate the vagina, impairs the sperm’s natural ability to swim through
the uterine tract and hinder the process of fertilization.
Finally, nothing can be more simple and effective than
talking it over.
