When you start actively trying to conceive, it's natural to wonder how you can speed up the process of getting pregnant. And while there’s no magic pill to improve fertility in men or women, your diet may play a significant role in how quickly you get a positive pregnancy test.
Registered dietician Alicia Galvin says that, as long as there are no structural issues that would cause infertility, diet and nutrition are critical pieces to fertility success. “Digestive health, adequate detoxification by the liver and blood sugar balance all affect egg and sperm quality,” she says. “By making sure all of these are addressed, a couple can influence sperm and fluid quality, hormone imbalances, success of implantation and embryo development, pregnancy and birth outcomes.”
So, are you ready to maximize your fertility through nutrition? Here are some tips for getting started.
