The Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction estimates that around 10 to 14 percent of the Indian population suffers from some form of infertility. That figure is expected to grow in the near future as more and more Indian couples choose to delay having a child due to professional obligations.
The silver lining here though is that not every couple or individual facing this problem needs to go for fertility treatments. There are a number of things you can do to boost your fertility and aid the process of natural conception. In fact, a lot of infertility cases can be solved by following these steps and engaging in regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
Right on top of the list is your diet. Ensure you consume a wholesome diet that is rich in protein, iron, zinc and various vitamins. A shortfall in these nutrients has been proven to affect ovulation while also increasing the risk of miscarriage. Not having enough exercise and being overweight is shown to have similar effects on your fertility. Exercising regularly and bringing your weight under control is also an effective way to manage stress, which is the number one cause of the increase in infertility cases these days. While at it, you can further boost fertility by including multivitamins and mineral supplements in your diet.
