It is important to note the difference between being infertile and fertility challenged. Infertile is the inability to conceive, while fertility challenged involves a correctable problem that is blocking conception. Our formula is 100 % plant based and designed too assist with a wide range of fertility issues.
What affects your fertility?
A number of factors can affect your odds of conceiving.
One of the biggest factors is your age, since fertility declines over time. For example, the average healthy 30-year-old has about a 20 percent chance of getting pregnant each month she tries. By age 40, the odds drop to less than 5 percent each month.
Up to 13 percent of female infertility is caused by cigarette smoking, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Smoking can lead to fertility problems in men, too, since it can reduce sperm production
Having an overweight or obese BMI can cause the body to produce too much estrogen, which can throw off the reproductive cycle — while being underweight can shut down ovulation. According to the ASRM, 12 percent of all infertility cases are a result of a woman weighing either too little or too much.
Endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), uterine fibroids and abnormalities of the uterus caused by previous surgeries or scarring can reduce fertility. Other illnesses, left untreated, (including kidney disease, untreated celiac disease, thyroid disease and sickle cell anemia in men) may also affect pregnancy odds.
Irregular menstrual cycles.
If your cycles are irregular — whether due to hormonal imbalances like PCOS, weight issues or medications you take — it can be tougher to figure out when you’re ovulating. And not knowing when to do the deed makes it harder to get pregnant.
Lupus can affect a woman’s chances of getting or staying pregnant.
Sexually transmitted infections.
Untreated STIs (usually gonorrhea and chlamydia) can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID, in turn, can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes, uterus and surrounding tissues, making it difficult or impossible to get pregnant. Fortunately, timely treatment of STIs can help you to avoid PID (which is why regularly seeing your OB-GYN, especially if you’re sexually active with more than one partner, is so important).
Occupational exposure to environmental toxins.
Some research has shown that prolonged exposure to pesticides, pollutants and industrial chemicals — which usually occurs in certain jobs can decrease a couple’s chances of conceiving. For women, these toxins can disrupt the menstrual cycle or sex hormone production and reduce fertility, while men may have low hormone levels, a lower sex drive, reduction in the number of sperm or semen amount, or erectile dysfunction.
Even if your weight is just right, exercising too hard (or long) can affect baby-making. A 2012 study found that normal-weight women (those with a BMI under 25) who exercised vigorously for more than five hours a week had a harder time getting pregnant. But that doesn’t mean you should let your gym membership lapse: Regular, moderate exercise slightly increased fertility for all women (normal weight, overweight or obese).
FUNCTION: Fertility Booster addresses the physiological reasons that a woman may have fertility issues. This formula helps to increase the progesterone (pro pregnancy hormone) levels in the body to aid in conception. It also supports a healthy uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes for reproductive functioning. Regular use supports hormonal balance, as well as promotion of overall systemic health, which is beneficial to the conception and pregnancy process.
