When pregnancy doesn’t occur right away, couples begin wondering who is to blame. After a month or two of perfectly timed sex without conception, it is normal to entertain thoughts that you might be one of the millions of couples considered ‘infertile.’ Being worried about infertility is a very common concern of couples who are trying to become pregnant.
In around two-thirds of couples, the problem is female related. However, in most cases of BOTH male and female infertility (69% to be exact) the problems are caused by environmental, lifestyle, endocrine, hormonal or physical factors that affect the female reproductive organs or sperm quality in the male.
The good news is that with so many common problems with fertility caused by outside environmental factors – they can be fixed with safe and natural supplements, diet, exercise, and holistic methods of realigning and balancing the body that increase your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
Environmental factors that can impede fertility can be things like smoking (as well as second hand smoke), exposure to toxins, addictions to alcohol or drugs and even prescription medications. Poor diet, being over weight and stress are also common issues that decrease your chances of getting pregnant.
Keep in mind that hormonal balance in both men and women is critical to getting pregnant. Both egg and sperm require intricate hormonal releases in order for fertilization, conception, and uterine implantation to take place. From there, further chemical reactions are necessary in order for the uterus to hang on to the fertilized egg and begin growing your baby.
There are millions of tiny chemical processes that must take place in order to become pregnant. If you have been trying to get pregnant without success, don’t lose hope! First make lifestyle changes that ensure you and your partner are in optimal health. And, no matter what you are going through – make sure that you stay positive and have faith in your pregnancy goals.
