What to Avoid When You're Trying to Conceive

July 3, 2017
Katie Visco

  Trying to conceive can feel like an uphill battle, but what if some simple lifestyle changes could possibly help you get pregnant? Here is a list of 11 things to avoid if you are attempting to conceive.  

1. Smoking

It comes as no surprise that smoking is not good for you, but did you know that smoking can increase the chances of genetic abnormalities in women�۪s eggs? Smoking doesn�۪t just affect female fertility either. Men who smoke have a lower sperm count and more sperm abnormalities. If you are trying to have a baby, kicking this habit can be helpful.

2. Caffeine

While you do not need to cut caffeine out of your diet entirely, it is a good idea to cut back. "Heavy caffeine consumption has been linked to fertility issues and can also cause health issues once you actually become pregnant."

3. Binge Drinking

Skipping that daily happy hour trip can help reduce several fertility issues linked to heavy drinking. Drinking to excess, which is considered more than two drinks per day, has been linked to irregular periods, ovulation problems, and abnormal hormone levels.

4. Extreme Weight

Being extremely overweight or extremely underweight can greatly affect your fertility. "It's important to be at a healthy weight in order to be able to conceive and have a subsequent healthy pregnancy." Want to see what other things to avoid when you are trying to conceive? Keep reading here.
