Fertility is the natural ability one possesses to conceive a child. Around 10%-15% of married couples in India face the problem of fertility. Even minor stressors can adversely affect your fertility and prevent you from getting pregnant. But, thankfully there are some easy ways to boost your fertility and become pregnant faster. Here, we present some of those methods through which you could boost your fertility.
Watch your Health: You should monitor your health by going to regular checkups. A doctor would be able to give you the best advice to stay fit. Good diet, regular exercise, healthy body weight, proper sleep and less stress goes a long way in maintaining a high level of fertility.
Know the process: All the pregnancies start when the egg meets sperm. The process where ovaries release an egg is called ovulation. You need to keep a track of the ovulation process and have sex during that time as it increases the chance of pregnancy.
Monitor the Testicle Temperature: Testicles are usually a few degrees cooler than the rest of the body because that is a better temperature for sperm production. So, it becomes necessary to keep a tab on the testicle temperature to boost your fertility.
Keep a tab on your medications: Before you try to conceive a baby, make sure that any medications you consume does not affect your fertility.
Maintain a balanced diet: A good diet increases your fertility and boosts the chances of conceiving. Include enough amount of iron, protein, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D in your diet as deficiencies in these nutrients leads to the risk of miscarriage.

Avoid Alcohol: Various studies conducted by well- known researchers have shown a decreased ability to conceive with the consumption of alcohol. Besides, alcohol also adversely affects the fetus.
No Smoking: Cigarettes damage a woman’s eggs and interfere with the fertilisation and implantation process. Besides, it also causes the ovaries to age. This means that the ovaries of a 35 year old functions like the ovaries of 42 year old, meaning less fertility.
