Ultimate Guide to Achieve a Successful Pregnancy

While planning for a pregnancy it is necessary to know everything that helps boosting your fertility and your chances of conception.The biggest mistake couples make is when they think that just by eliminating all contraceptive measures they would be able to conceive easily.

Since, there are a lot of other factors that come into play while getting pregnant, the couple must be aware of what are the right things to follow and the things that need to be avoided for achieving a successful pregnancy.

Keeping that mind, experts from the best IVF clinic in Delhi have shared a few effective tips to be followed that will help in enhancing your fertility and your chances of getting pregnant.

1. Adopting a healthy lifestyle

For a couple planning to get pregnant, it is extremely important to stay healthy and eliminate all unhealthy habits from their life. While eating a healthy and nutritious diet, regular exercise is necessary, it is also advised to cut out completely on alcohol, smoking lifestyle and caffeine-rich foods such as tea, coffee, chocolates and soda since all of these have a tendency to lower fertility. Excessive and strenuous exercise can also take a toll on fertility. So keep in mind to do it in moderation and at low intensity.

2. Super foods to enhance fertility

Women need to include food rich in folic acid, protein, vitamin A, B6, B12, C and E and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Superfoods like almonds, avocados, walnuts etc. are necessary to enhance fertility in women and also prepare body to carry the pregnancy.

For boosting the testosterone and sperm production, men need to include superfoods such as eggs, seafood, chicken and whole grain which are rich in zinc in their diet. Being rich in calcium and vitamin D, milk also helps in boosting male fertility.

3. Avoid Heat and Tight Clothes

Men should avoid wearing tight clothes and inner garments as it obstructs their sperm production. Direct use of laptops on lap and hot water baths should be avoided by men to maintain their sperm counts.

4. Know the right time for conception

During the early morning hours, the male sperm count is at its peak. So, the chances of conception are increased during this time.

Ovulation in women is the best time for conception as during this time, the chances of a successful conception is extremely high. Ovulation prediction kits help in determining the level of the Luteinizing Hormone (LH), since LH is at its peak 24 hours prior to the egg release. Thus, making it the perfect time for baby-planning intercourse.
