Another great natural fertility booster is to get out and do something! Exercise is a great way to get in shape and lose weight (remember, 30% of our estrogen comes from our fat cells. To many fat cells ((or to little)) and your hormones are out of balance) and also works on fighting off different diseases that may prohibit pregnancy. (think heart disease, etc.)
Exercise also does a great job at minimizing stress. And infertility is stressful. When you exercise, endorphins are released which allow you to be better equipped at it. Exercise also helps you sleep better, and getting plenty of sleep is pivotal in dealing with a stressful life.
Most importantly, it may also help to increase blood flow to your reproductive organs! Most women I know work office jobs. Where you sit all day long at a desk. Do you move enough? How do you think your blood circulation is doing? Getting up and moving around helps blood to flow more easily to the organs that need them.
Just getting started?
We all need to start somewhere. Just get up and walk. Thirty minutes at least a few times a week can have such a positive impact. And you don’t have to jump in with both feet first. Actually, if you do that, you’ll either hurt yourself or cause your body to go into shock, which may lead to reduced chances at ovulation. Start slow if you haven’t exercised in some time (or ever!) and build up gradually.
Make sure you aren’t over doing it. Women who exercise so much that they have very little body fat, have a hard time becoming pregnant and don’t ovulate each month. (keep in mind that most people don’t overdo exercise – at least no one I know of!) Men who over exercise also have low sperm counts as the extra heat damages the sperm.
As an added bonus, working out helps prepare your body for carrying a baby! It makes pregnancy and birthing easier on you, and gives you more energy.
