Here are 5 changes you need to make to get pregnant in a healthy way.

Lifestyle

Introducing a few changes into your lifestyle can significantly improve your chance of getting pregnant. However simple it may sound, quitting smoking, spending more time outdoors, getting enough sleep and trying to avoid stressful situations can all increase your fertility chances.

Ideal weight

Infertility or difficulties to conceive are often related to being underweight or overweight. Body fat contributes to the hormonal balance of the body significantly, so keeping it at healthy levels also means maintaining the right level of hormones in the blood.

Your body mass index (BMI) is considered to be healthy if it is between 20 and 24. If you need to lose or gain weight to reach a healthy BMI, you must proceed by switching to a healthy lifestyle that includes adequate physical activity and not by using artificial chemicals like slimming pills.

Balanced diet

As the old saying goes, “You are what you eat.” Consuming a lot of proteins and fibers and reducing your intake of carbohydrates will help you not only to reach your ideal weight, but also to improve your general health.

Fruits and vegetables, whole grain foods, nuts, fish, eggs and dairy products, all influence fertility in a positive way. On the other hand, foods containing artificial additives and preservatives, fatty foods, red meat, caffeinated, acidulated and alcoholic beverages can contribute to unhealthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels, reducing the chances of fertility.

Physical activity

Regular exercise strengthens the skeletal muscles and improves circulation by oxygenizing the blood. Anaerobic exercise like weight training helps you increase you muscle mass, while aerobic exercise like swimming, cycling, jogging, or even brisk walking will keep your lungs and heart in good condition which is very necessary for a healthy conception and pregnancy.

Dietary supplements

Certain vitamin supplements can positively influence fertility. Q10 coenzyme, vitamin B, C and E, flaxseed oil, zinc and selenium supplements can regulate hormonal activity and make your ovulation more predictable, thus facilitating conception.

If you follow our suggestions, in a few months’ time your body will be fit and healthy enough to be able to get pregnant and have a beautiful, healthy baby.
