Infertility - Female

It is a strange fact of nature that after years of taking precautions to prevent pregnancy, all too often, once a couple decides they want a baby, it doesn't happen as quickly as they had planned.

Between 10 and 20% of couples are infertile - that is they are unable to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse.

In about 40% of these cases the problem is sperm related. In 10% of cases no cause can be found. In the remaining 50% of cases something about the way the woman's body functions prevents pregnancy from occurring.

There can be many reasons why a woman has difficulty becoming pregnant. If she is underweight or obese, had a recent weight loss or has a poor diet she may find it difficult to conceive. Other causes of infertility include hormonal imbalance, pelvic inflammatory disease and chlamydia, which is often undiagnosed.

What Can Help
Start eating a healthy, well balanced diet. Avoid animal fats, sugar, junk foods and fried foods.
Try to cut out caffeine. A recent study showed that women who drank more than 300mg of caffeine daily (2 - 3 cups of coffee) may reduce their chance of conceiving by as much as 25%.
Cut out alcohol. It has been shown that even moderate consumption of alcohol (about 2 drinks per day) can reduce the chance of pregnancy.
Quit smoking - and try to avoid cigarette smoke
Stay out of hot tubs and saunas, and avoid vigorous exercise as these can cause changes in ovulation
RELAX !  Stress is well known as an excellent contraceptive.
