1. Educating Us On Our Fertility

New studies find that women, in particular young women, really don’t understand all too much about their fertility. This is alarming, and the recent implementation of National Fertility Awareness Week goes to show that the need for more and more women to better understand their fertility is growing.

Most-women-do-not-understand-that-fertility-issues-affect-more-than-one-in-six-couples-at-some-pointMost women do not understand that fertility issues affect more than one in six couples at some point, so it is likely to happen to you or someone you know. Only one in four natural conceptions results in a baby and there are only around 3-4 days each month when a woman can physically become pregnant. Most women do not realize this and just how fragile their fertility is.

2. The Ticking Clock

Another important thing for women to understand about fertility is that it really is short lived. Women are most fertile in their early twenties, but as they age, fertility begins to decline sometimes at a drastic rate. Women will see a sharp decline in their fertility at age 30, again at age 35, and again at 40. One alarming new study actually indicates that up to 90 percent of a woman’s eggs are already gone by age 30, and that only somewhere around 3 percent will remain at age 40. This is important for women to understand so they know that their fertility is not forever, and age is a very important factor.


3. Seeking Help

Another important thing that couples need to understand about their fertility is the appropriate time to seek help for fertility issues. Most guidelines suggest that for women under age 35, that they see a fertility specialist to check for fertility issues if they have been trying to conceive for more than one year with no success. For women over age 35, they should only try for six months to conceive before seeking fertility help, since time if of the essence for women over this age when it comes to getting pregnant.


4. Giving A Boost

Couples should also be made well aware of the things that they can do to boost their fertility naturally and prolong the chances of getting pregnant. First of all, using illegal drugs, smoking, and drinking alcohol are all things that negatively impact fertility and make it harder for women to conceive.

Women-should-also-consider-trying-a-prenatal-vitamin-or-a-fertility-blend-like-Conceive-Easy-in-order-to-give-their-fertility-an-added-boostMaintaining a healthy weight, getting enough exercise, and paying close attention to diet is also a very big deal. Reducing stress and getting enough sleep are also important factors that contribute to fertility in a big way. Women should also consider trying a prenatal vitamin or a fertility blend like Conceive Easy in order to give their fertility an added boost.
