How To Fight Infertility in Women

Updated on August 22, 2016

Motherhood is a special blessing that many women look forward to – for some it is the “true essence” of what it means to be a woman. Having a baby is often a common dream between many couples, whether soon or far into the future. As a result, it can be heart wrenching to go through a long wait to get pregnant or worse, for a woman to be told by her doctor that she cannot conceive children.

Many are wondering if there are ways to fight infertility in women. According to studies, there are several effective ways to increase the chances for conceiving a baby. These steps, along with strong faith, may bring positive results.

Weight Issues

One of the most common issues that can affect ovulation is body weight – specifically being overweight or underweight. The female body has to be physically prepared for conceiving and carrying a baby. In the case of those who are overweight, too much body fat produces excessive estrogen, which can impede ovulation. On the other hand, if a woman is underweight, the pituitary gland doesn't discharge enough hormones for effective ovulation. Therefore, to encourage fertility, it is important for a woman to achieve a healthy body weight for her particular height, age and lifestyle.

Health Concerns

Maintaining good health can help to combat infertility in women, and this starts with nutritious food and a balanced diet. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy and healthy fats. Steer clear of foods containing trans fat, as it is unhealthy and might have a detrimental effect on conception. To ensure adequate nutrition, try a daily vitamin and mineral supplement which can help to strengthen the immune system and enhance overall health.

Get regular exercise, but consult a doctor or health specialist in order to determine the proper amount. Research shows that women who exercise too little or too much are less likely to conceive. Exercise also helps to lower stress levels, which can also impede fertility.

Practice other healthy behaviors in addition to good nutrition and exercise. For instance, don’t smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol when trying to conceive, and always shoot for eight to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep per night.

Attitude Matters

A good attitude counts for a lot in the fight against infertility in women. Try to remain positive in all situations. This will help to reduce stress, maintain good health and hopefully attract what you desire, which is to conceive a baby.
