Natural Fertility Boosters

If you’re having trouble conceiving, intrusive medical assistance could well be the last thing you want. However effective it could be, it’s not the experience many people want to have to begin the pregnancy that leads to them starting their family.

Today OvuSense is taking a look at some more natural fertility boosters, so you can give yourself a better chance to get pregnant before you have to use more invasive methods.

Timing

You can boost your chances of conceiving easily simply by improving your timing. You stand your best chance of getting pregnant within what’s known as your ‘fertile window’. This is the time surrounding ovulation, when sperm have the chance to survive long enough to reach the egg after it’s ovulated.

There are several different methods available for you to use when you track your ovulation, but the one OvuSense uses and recommends is measuring your basal body temperature. Small changes in this minimum temperature that your body drops to during protracted periods of rest can predict when you’re going to ovulate.

Our fertility device monitors your body temperature throughout the night, for the most accurate possible data, and uses an algorithm hosted in the cloud to turn that data into a prediction of your next fertile window, to give you a significant – and natural – boost to your fertility.

Diet

Some of the most effective changes you can make to your diet for a natural fertility boost are the simplest.

Before you look at expensive supplements, try adding more leafy, green vegetables to your meals. Vegetables like kale and cabbage contain some of the most important building blocks your body needs to build healthy reproductive cells and run a regular, predictable menstrual cycle. Vitamin K helps your body absorb some of the other key vitamins involved in reproduction as well as being key to the menstrual cycle. Vitamin C is important to both men and women, with studies showing elevated levels of this vitamin driving higher fertility in eggs and greater motility in sperm.

Eat a Bigger Breakfast

This single tip can be a huge help if you’re living with polycystic ovary syndrome. PCOS is a syndrome driven by an overproduction of insulin in your body – this has lots of different effects, including causing your body to produce more androgen, which in turn interferes with your ovaries processes for maturing and ovulating eggs.

Studies have shown that women who eat most of their calories at breakfast, and have smaller meals at lunch and dinner ovulate 30% more than those who consume the majority of their calories at the end of the day, it is thought because this can help to reduce insulin levels.

Reversing your standard pattern of calorie consumption can lead to a very real and natural boost in your fertility – as well as other health benefits like weight loss!
