Debunk Those Fertility Myths

  1. 1. Discover the Real Truth about Fertility Myths <ul><li>by Justine Kallaher </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>There is a lot of misinformation when it comes to conception handed down from generations or simply twisted research. Basically, what it boils down to is that many individuals have some incorrect notions about a woman’s reproductive systems and how it functions. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Here are 5 very popular fertility myths and truths so that you can feel more at ease.
  4. 4. 1.) My Chances of Conceiving are Less Upon Becoming 35 years Old <ul><li>The truth demonstrates that changes in fertility actually occur throughout a female's life and the decline is not immediate when she turns to be 35 years old. There is no miracle biological clock ticking inside a woman’s body. In truth, lots of women reach their highest level of fertility once they get into her 20’s , according to Dr. Shari Brasner, author of Advice From a Pregnant Obstetrician: An Inside Guide . </li></ul>
  5. 5. 2.) Woman Are Responsible for Infertility <ul><li>Most partners figure if there is an issue or problem with conception, then it is a linked to the women and the male is assumed to be strong and virile. The truth is it is very far from the truth. In fact, statistics show that 40 percent of infertility problems are due to male problems. It is equally linked to woman as they make up an additional 40 and another 20 percent of issues with infertility can be linked to women and men. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 3.) Infertility is Brought on by Stress <ul><li>Facts do show that hormones can be suppressed from stress and hinder ovulation. Any type of normal stress will not affect any combining of the female egg and male sperm. It is important to detail out that extreme stress can and does affect fertility but not everyday stress or life situations. If your partner becomes stressed very easily then natural therapies are recommended such as Acupuncture for fertility and other remedies could benefit them greatly and increase their chances to be pregnant . </li></ul>
  7. 7. 4.) A Man’s Fertility is Only Affected when he is Overweight <ul><li>Many women and men understand that being obese increases chances that sperm count is negatively reduced. You may be unaware that men whose bodies are very thin can have a reduced sperm count as well. The reason is because there are imbalances in their hormone levels possibly due to malnutrition and its said to hamper the sperm production. An experienced reproductive endocrinologist should be able to remedy the situation. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>A research study conducted at the 2008 European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology conference proved that men who had a preferred BMI ( Body Mass Index ) of 20 to 25 attained stronger and normal levels than men who were too thin or overweight. So, if you currently have a low Body Mass Index then you should seriously consider improving your weight in healthy methods with a physician or nutritionist. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 5.) Becoming Pregnant While on Your Period is Impossible <ul><li>Because of varying ovulation schedules in women there are certainly chances to become pregnant while you are on your period. While it is true that the risk is lower and unlikely it could happen and has happened. There are women who have a prolonged menstruation period that goes on until ovulation. Furthermore, sperm has the ability to live in the cervical mucus on average of 48 hours. So, sure, it can happen according to medical research and has happened in real life. </li></ul>
