It is not something you should worry about only when you are ready to have children, it is critical to think about lifestyle factors well before that. Infertility affects millions of people. 30% of infertility is attributed to the male, while 30% is attributed to the female. 30% of infertility cases are due to weighing too much or too little.
It is critical to understand your fertility and explore healthy lifestyle options in order to preserve and enhance your fertility.
Lifestyle factors that can have a negative long-term influence on your health and your fertility are as follows:
- Caffeine consumption
- Unprotected sex
- Overuse of alcohol
- Body weight
- Poor nutrition
Food plays a vital role in fertility and overall health.
For example: Caffeine, a stimulant found in coffee, tea, soda and chocolate, has negative effects on health and fertility. Caffeine can increase stress and is known to have addictive qualities. Caffeine may cause damage to sperm and increases the risk in females of developing endometriosis. So, instead of reaching for that cup of coffee in the morning, try a cup of herbal tea and a glass of calcium fortified orange juice to reduce stress, reduce caffeine intake and optimize your health.
