Fertility is one thing that you take for granted until you want to actually put it into to use. This happens when you have no idea of what goes into having a baby. Here are some answers to various questions hanging unanswered in your mind!

1. What can be done to have more eggs?

Nothing can be done to produce or develop more eggs. Women are born with about 2 million eggs and they gradually lose them throughout your lifetime and menstrual cycles.

2. How can pills affect the fertility?

When you are on birth control you actually don’t ovulate. This doesn’t mean that you are killing off the extra eggs. You are just not using them! Even if you don’t ovulate your eggs will naturally degrade and die with time. The pills actually reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.

3. Can IUDs impact your fertility?

Intrauterine devices do not affect fertility in any negative way. You still have the possibility to ovulate when you have an IUD inserted into your uterus. The device only makes your uterus inhospitable for the fertilized eggs.

4. Does eating anything, in particular, induce labor?

There are a lot of myths out there about how foods can induce labor. Eating spicy foods, garlic, pineapple and almost everything is meant to induce labor. But the fact is that no food can actually induce labor.

5. Plan in your early 20s!

It might found silly, but just as we plan our retirement we need a plan for the reproduction as well! This is because there are a lot of things that can make it harder for you to get pregnant. So it is always better to know your own body and understand the risks and make potential choices well in advance.

6. It’s couple issue and not a women problem!

Fertility affects both men & women and it’s not a women problem alone.  When a couple seeks for infertility issue, most of the time it is male infertility and it is the male sperm that is responsible for infertility.

7. Are you potentially Capable?

It can take awhile for even young, healthy women to get pregnant. And if you plan to put off having kids at an early age and plan it during your early 30s then you should have done a complete evaluation with your doctor to check if you are potentially capable of conceiving at a later age.

8. Blood Test Performance

You may have a blood test performed to check on your egg reserves. It is performed on the 3rd day of the menstrual cycle so that we can identify whether the female is capable or incapable of postponing her pregnancy to a later stage.

9. Consult a Specialist

If you are women under 35 and trying to get pregnant then you will have to try for a year with your partner and if that doesn’t work then you can consult a specialist. But if you have crossed your 40s and still want to get pregnant then you will have to consult a specialist to know about the odds and opinions.

10. Lifestyle Factors

Some lifestyle factors can also affect your reproduction. Very small changes in your lifestyle can make potential changes in your fertility.

  • Women who smoke go through menopause 4 years earlier than those who don’t!
  • Alcoholism
  • Chronic stress
  • Poor diet
  • Lack of regular exercise

      Lifestyle changes in men can also affect the fertility.

  • Smoking definitely hurts your sperm
  • Taking testosterone to build muscles can also affect sperm count
  • Alcoholism
  • Chronic stress
  • Poor diet
  • Lack of regular exercise

11. Health Conditions

Health conditions that make it harder for you to conceiveThere are some health conditions which can worsen your ability to conceive. Some are listed below:

Women health issues:  

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Irregular periods
  • Overweight or underweight
  • Endometriosis
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome

 Men health issue:

  • Weight problems
  • Hormone disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid problems
  • Previous trauma to the area

12. Inheritance Problem

Your mom’s pregnancy and menopause can tell you something about your own fertility. If your mom underwent menopause in her late 30s or early 40s then it is a sign that you might suffer from infertility problems. The same is true even if she has suffered uterine fibroids, difficulty in pregnancy, or endometriosis.

13. Surgical Treatment

Technology is amazing but it is not a sure thing! Most of the surgical treatment methods may not be applicable if you have crossed your 40s. There is no way to grow new eggs or to develop new eggs. Once a woman is out of eggs then she is out of eggs. There is no way to develop new ones.

14. Freezing your Egg

If at all you are planning to freeze your eggs then the best time is in your 20s or early 30s! the younger you are when you froze your eggs then there is a possibility that it is more viable and is of high quality!

15. Age Effects

Age effects sperm as well! It is a wrong belief that male age does not have any impact on fertility. Men also have equal contribution. The older they get the less healthy is their sperm quality. Men can become a father even in their late 70s but the fact is that children born to older dads have more chances of being victims of autism and other psychiatric conditions.
