Of course, you also might have to reduce certain consumptions – like caffeine and alcohol – and add new foods to your diet, rich in vitamins, antioxidants and other elements that will boost your chances of conceiving a child. Here are five important tips on what foods you should eat, in order to pump the right elements into your body and improve your chances to have a baby faster.

Foods rich in zinc

You need foods rich in zinc, as this is one of the most important minerals to have in your body when you are trying to conceive. It regulates ovulation and increases semen production. Therefore, you should introduce in your diet more chicken, crab, oysters, beef and turkey.

Alphabet vitamins

When choosing the right food to improve fertility, you need to take into account nutrients rich in vitamins A, B12, C, D and E. These vitamins help you balance your hormones, cleanse your organism and keep it running at a normal level. Plus, in the long run, they could help you sustain your pregnancy and increase the chances of having a healthy baby. Turn to vegetables and fruits, and make your diet as colored as possible.

Iron & calcium-rich food

Foods rich in iron and calcium are highly recommended, too; hence, eat meat, cereals and asparagus in order to pump iron into your body, and turn to dairy products for your daily dose of calcium.

Whole grains

Do not be afraid of whole grains, either, as they provide your body with the required amount of calcium, vitamins and even omega 3, to keep you strong and to improve your fertility.

Eat more fish

Fish has many qualities and is one of the top foods to be eaten when you are on a diet, when you want to eat well, when you need omega 3, etc. Hence, fish is very good when trying to get pregnant, too, since the above-mentioned omega 3 will increase your fertility levels. Turn to salmon, catfish or shrimp, as they are both tasty and useful, and they possess low levels of mercury.

Therefore, the key to finding the right foods is balance; eat a bit of all the nutrients which contain minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and an entire set of elements required to keep you fertile and strong in order to be able to conceive. And do not forget to drinks lots of water.

    The most fertile days of a woman varies from one to another. Due to the way the female reproductive tract works, the most fertile days would be around two weeks after menstruation. This however may differ if you have irregular periods. If on the other hand you have regular periods, it would be easier to keep track of your fertile days. Ovulation almost always happen 14 days prior to the expected day of your menstruation. During this time, it is essential to make the most out of the fertile days.

    I’m 34. For just over a year now my periods have decreased from being 5 – 7 days long to just 1 or 2 days and they are noticeably very light (watery) & then just spotting. I started my periods when I was 11 yrs old & have always had a very regular cycle (every 28 days). I always had a couple of heavy days, followed by a medium & then a light flow. Now there’s barely anything (if anything) on the pad at all. I am not sexually active at the moment, but this really worries me as I’ve always wanted children. I’ve been to the doctors & about a year ago I had 2 blood tests both of which said my testosterone was high and on the first test my prolactin was high but my blood serum was normal. I went back the other day to have another blood test as things have not changed in over a year. I was told everything is normal with my blood serum & prolactin levels & my testosterone level is still a little high. The doctor thought it was really strange when I asked if they’d tested my estrogen levels & told me they hadn’t because everything is normal & I was told I am just anxious & should consider anti-depressants & counselling. The only time I feel stessed is when I speak to the doctors who won’t carry out the tests I require & refuse for me to see a gyno. My periods are similar to what they were when I was on the pill – there is barely any blood at all. The doctors have not carried out a physical examination, but I have had an ultrasound & intra-vaginal scan which showed there were no cysts & my uterus looked healthy. Could it be that I’m not ovulating? Why am I not being taken seriously? What can I do?
