The key to enjoy good sex lies in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Everyone makes resolutions every year but few people stick to it. So, let's begin this New Year with a healthy lifestyle.
Research has proven that if you are trying to conceive, it is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Being physically fit is of utmost importance as it helps in regaining stamina and rejuvenating your energy level.
Dr Shobha Gupta, medical director and IVF specialist from Mother's Lap IVF Centre and Dr Shweta Goswami, gynaecologist and IVF expert from Jaypee Hospital tell you how to improve your fertility and have a healthy sex life.
Start with eating. Eat good, eat right
Too many of us are eating too late in the day or when we go to bed at night, we're meant to digest our day, not our dinner.
Eating at the right time is important also, it is very important for a woman to have a balanced diet which is full of multi vitamins and minerals.
Vitamin C is very important to women for those who are planning a baby as it significantly increases the pregnancy rate.
Protein in your diet is very important for your fertility as it helps to maintain blood sugar balance. Include more salads and fruits in your diet.
Don't sit. Go out and walk
Walking is an ideal pre-conception exercise. It is a great cardiovascular exercise and it also helps tone your legs, back and tummy.
To boost your fertility and stamina or even conceive, it is important to stay fit.
So, go for a regular walk in the morning and evening.
Find out your mental peace
Find a quiet place away from distractions.
Clear your mind and focus on your breathing between 10 and 20 minutes.
Try to do it daily, so you give your body a physical and mental rest.
Listen to some soothing sounds like sea movement, waterfalls and rainforest noises, can also eliminate stress.
Keep a check on your biological clock
As we age, our biological clock starts ticking.
It’s hard to know when the time is right for a baby. Should you wait another two months, six months or do something now?
Dr Shobha Gupta says "Women are most fertile in their early 20s and their fertility declines with age.
From the age of 35, this fall becomes steeper. The more 'fertility aware' you are, the better so you can make an informed decision and be aware that it might take you longer to conceive."
Limit the usage of laptops, computers and phones
Especially during night limit the usage of electronic devices as radiation from them harms your fertility big time.
Instead of working on laptops and sticking to your phone, invest your time in your partner.
Pay attention to your digestive system
According to Dr Goswami, you can have a great diet, but if you have a poor digestive system, with inflammation, fermentation and poor gut function, the way everything functions in the pelvic cavity won't be optimal.
Seek professional advice
You are the best person to know about your body.
When you think you are lost and things are going out of your way, it's best to seek a professional's advice.
