The decision to bring a new life into this world is a big one. This decision marks the beginning of a new phase for any couple.
However, conceiving a baby is not that easy for all. It is not uncommon for couples to encounter problems while trying to conceive. And that is where Fertility Treatment comes into the picture.
What is Fertility Treatment?
If a couple is unable to get pregnant even after having frequent, unprotected sex for one year or more, they need to be investigated why they are not able to conceive and various treatments can be used to help them have a baby . These methods are known as Fertility Treatments.
Fertility Treatments depend on the following:
- Cause of Infertility
- Duration for which the couple has been infertile
- Age of the couple
If you have decided to go for a Fertility Treatment, then following certain basic tips can make your journey a lot easier.
Dos and Don’ts
Besides your doctor’s advice, keep these following tips in mind.
Do: Talk about available treatment options
There are several treatment options available for fertility treatment. Research thoroughly and choose a treatment which is best suited for you. Fertility Treatments can be financially taxing. Make sure you talk to your partner and plan properly.
It is perfectly okay to undergo a Fertility Treatment, just the way you take medicines to cure a flu or use glasses to correct vision related problems. Don’t over think, and be open. Talk freely about your feelings.
Do: Eat Right
Include plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your daily diet. In order to have a healthy pregnancy, it’s essential to eat a well-balanced diet. Try to go for organic foods as much as possible.
Avoid overeating, having junk food, or devouring oily or artificially sweetened dishes. Also, say no to processed food.
Do: Drink lots of fluids
Proper water intake helps in maintaining hormonal balance, which is crucial when it comes to fertility. Also, it will flush out the unnecessary toxins from your body.
Don’t: Consume alcohol or caffeine
When you are planning to have a baby, and especially if you are undergoing fertility treatment, then caffeine and alcohol are a strict no for both men and women. Not only do they increase the chances of miscarriage, but they also affect fertility and health of both sperm and egg.
Parenthood is a beautiful journey, and it’s only fitting that something so magical has an equally amazing start as well. The right fertility treatment can make this happen for you. For further assistance, consult with an Apollo Fertility Expert and give your parenthood journey a proper start!
