Fertility problems

You feel the desire of having a baby but it doesn’t work out? You’d like to know what you can do to get pregnant? We have some useful advice how to increase your chances of pregnancy:
Nicotine
If you want to get pregnant you should stop smoking immediately. Nicotine has a negative influence on the fertility of men an women.
Smoking reduces the man’s sperm quality and the number of sperm cells. Women who smoke lower their chances to get pregnant because of the negative influence of nicotine on the quality of the egg cells and their implantation in the uterus. Smoking also brings on menopause faster – as 4 years faster than in non smoking women. Research has shown that nicotine doesn’t only have a negative influence on fertility but also on the baby’s health. Especially women smokers often suffer miscarriage, placental abruption and malformation of the fetus. It is therefore important to stop smoking before starting IVF-treatment. The chances of getting pregnant, in women smokers, reduce of 50%.

Alcohol
As soon as you start IVF-treatment alcohol should be consumed only in small quantities. During pregnancy you shouldn’t consume any alcoholic beverages at all.

Diet
Obesity as well as underweight have a negative influence on fertility. For couples who desire pregnancy and consider undergoing IVF-treatment it is necessary to optimize their body weight and life style.
Take care of a healthy and balanced diet. A varied, low-fat and nutritious diet makes sure that couples get enough vitamins and minerals.
We suggest to take a dietary supplement that contains folic acid. It is also important to drink 2-3 liters of fluids a day and to avoid an excessive consumption of coffee. Studies have shown that there is a connection between heavy coffee drinking and reduced fertility.
