A common diet may enhance a woman's chances of conceiving!

When it comes to trying for a baby, there are plenty of tips and tricks that promise to boost your chances of getting pregnant.
However, instead of resorting to nutritional supplements, women undergoing artificial insemination should follow the Mediterranean diet to improve their chances of conceiving a child, according to one expert.

Professor Roger Hart, a fertility specialist at the University of Western Australia, reviewed all the evidence on popular supplements and diets believed to improve IVF success.

The Mediterranean diet, which includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and olive oil, was found to have the best evidence of benefit in women undergoing IVF.

He said that there are many well-designed clinical trials that have shown benefits in fetal growth and pregnancy outcomes, adding: “These diets are rich in B vitamins, antioxidants, omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids and fiber, and are low in saturated fat, sugar and sodium.”

While there is some evidence to suggest that omega-3 “may be beneficial” in improving IVF success, a large review of a group of popular nutritional supplements described it as being of low quality with no ability to prove any benefit in terms of live birth rate. 

Hart advised that a simple dietary approach to help with IVF pregnancy would be to adopt the Mediterranean diet, while supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids may also yield some benefits.

The research, published in the journal Reproductive Biomedicine Online, stated: “In an attempt to draw conclusions from studies to facilitate the advancement of possible therapeutic strategies to help women undergo IVF treatment, one relatively straightforward approach is to adopt a Mediterranean diet while undergoing IVF treatment.” .


Huge study: Diseases that prevent you from having children when diagnosed in your twenties!

A new study has found that 74 health problems are linked to not having children later in life, when diagnosed young.
Researchers at Harvard and Oxford Universities identified that behavioral health problems, such as alcoholism and schizophrenia, had the greatest impact on childlessness among men diagnosed in their 20s.

It turns out that women are more likely to miss children due to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disorders and type 2 diabetes, when diagnosed in their early 20s.

The long list consists of 74 different conditions that increase the chances of a man or woman being infertile later in life, including behavioral disorders and disabilities such as schizophrenia and cerebral palsy, alcohol and drug addiction and antisocial personality disorder.

Other non-mental conditions that have also been associated with increased rates of childlessness include high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, vaginal infections, and irregular menstrual periods.

The strongest factors affecting the ability to have children in the future included: birth defects and other disorders from birth, mental health problems and disorders that affect the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis and juvenile arthritis.

In the study, researchers analyzed data on 1.4 million women - born between 1956 and 1973 - and 1.1 million men - born between 1956 and 1968.

Women who were between 16 and 20 years old when they were diagnosed with obesity were more likely to be infertile than women who were diagnosed in early adulthood.

The researchers said that mental problems had the greatest impact among men, while metabolic and endocrine problems, such as diabetes, had the greatest impact on the rates of childlessness among women.

“By assessing the role of several early life diseases in childlessness in 2.5 million people across Finland and Sweden, this study paves the way for a better understanding of infertility,” said Dr. Andrea Jana, Director of the Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM).

"Various factors are increasing rates of infertility around the world, with postponing childbearing being a major contributor that may increase the risk of infertility," said Dr. Auxing Liu, lead author of the study and a researcher at the University of Helsinki.

The results were published in the journal Nature Human Behavior .
