10 Surprising Factors Effecting Your Fertility: Part 1
June 1, 2017
A number of studies have shown some surprising correlations between fertility rates and other factors. Read on for five things that may be affecting your fertility.
1. Housing Prices
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development found that rising home prices in England are causing fewer births. For every 10% rise in housing prices, the birth rate drops 1.3%. As fewer people can afford their home, the thought of bringing a child into the world becomes a more distant financial dream.
2. Working at Night
A Harvard study from earlier this year showed that working the night shift can affect the fertility rates for both men and women. Working at night against the body's natural circadian rhythm seems to reduce the body's ability to produce the highest quality eggs and sperm.
3. Drinking Soda
Your afternoon soda habit may be reducing your chances of pregnancy. In addition to soda's ties to both obesity and diabetes, the artificial sweeteners in diet soda are often associated with higher rates of infertility. Even real sugar in regular soda is linked to lower quality eggs.
4. Poor Diet
Numerous studies have shown a variety of correlations between an imbalanced diet and issues with fertility. Maintain a healthy weight and diet to increase your chances of conception.
5. Stressful Job
Women working in high stress environments are less likely to conceive through IVF than their peers. A study comparing the women working in finances vs teachers found that despite having better employee health plans women working in volatile, often male-centered work environments like banking are more likely to cancel appointments and forget to take medications.
