You Can Begin Another Life At 40 – Increase Fertility Naturally

The age between 18 and 28 are the most fertile years of a woman. Conception and bringing pregnancy to term are still easily made possible even into the mid-thirties since hormones that are at the driver’s seat of ovulation, support conception and undergird a healthy pregnancy are still in abundance. At this age, you may already have called it quits to too much booze, smoking, wild partying and the unhealthy lifestyle.

However, for women who had put having children into the back burner and are wanting to conceive now that they are in their late thirties or entering their forties, the pregnancy train may already have permanently left them. Right? Wrong! Even at 40, you can still conceive and there are ways to increase fertility naturally.

Ways To Increase Fertility Naturally

Manage Stress. Your body negatively responds to stress. The proper functioning of the different facilities and processes in your body can be disrupted by stress. The ability to conceive is not an exception. Stress is one of the main culprits of infertility in women who are past 40. If you are among them and would like to get pregnant, the first thing you can do is to learn to manage stress. Put some balance into your life, whatever it is that is making you busy and anxious.

To help you relax, learn some relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation or even yoga. Certain yoga poses are said to aid in increasing the likelihood of pregnancy. Meditation can help relax your mind, calming your anxious thoughts, perhaps on not being able to have a baby.

Eat Right. Women planning to get pregnant are often advised to eat healthy since another human being will soon be feeding on the same diet. If you want to increase fertility naturally, eating foods rich in Vitamin E is said to be vital not just in boosting your chances to conceive, but as well as in preventing birth defects.

Include in your diet seeds, nuts, freshly ground wheat flour and cold-pressed oils as these are rich sources of Vitamin E. Also include in your diet green leafy vegetables as sources of folic acid, calcium and magnesium. Zinc also plays an important role in the functioning of your reproductive organs, so taking foods teeming with this mineral is another way to increase fertility naturally.

Weigh Right. Another reason why you should watch what you eat is your weight. Hormone production in the body may be affected by being overweight or underweight especially if you are past 40. Complement diet with exercise that will allow you to either lose or gain weight depending on your case.

Avoid Heat. Ask the hubby to stay clear of saunas and hot tubs because immersing in this heat over an extended period can result in temporary sterility. For women, heat can pose a threat to the delicate young embryo and may lead to a miscarriage or birth defects.

Women over the age of 40 need not lose hope that they can still conceive since there are ways to help them increase fertility naturally which even younger women can follow.
