Fertility issues can be a lonely place.
We assume it will just happen naturally…. That it happens naturally for everyone else.
Yet 3.5 million people (that’s 1 in 7 couples) in the UK have problems conceiving and that number is on the increase. And more than one third of these have “unexplained infertility” – also known as doctors don’t know why.
Miscarriages are commonplace – more common that you think. 1 in 7 known pregnancies will end in miscarriage with many more happening before a women evens knows she’s pregnant.
Improve your chances
No-one can guarantee that you will get pregnant but it is possible to improve your chances by taking control of your health – even if you are going down the IVF route.
When it comes to fertility, stress is the enemy. Having a good stress-busting routine is essential.
Our diet and other health concerns can also have a profound effect on our fertility.
