Role of Healthy Lifestyle and Exercise to Improve Fertility

In this modern-day and age, lifestyles have evolved to a completely different level. Today, when pollution is on the rising health, is constantly under greater risk. Apart from that, addiction and unhealthy eating habits take a toll on your health to a great extent. Oily food leads to hazardous health effects like high blood pressure, which can then cause heart issues. All these health conditions have a direct or indirect effect on fertility and reproductive health.

Effects of smoking

Research shows that prolonged smoking can have a drastic effect on your reproductive health. The risk of it maybe twice that of non-smokers in women. Smoking reduces sperm count in men as well. Smoking damages sperm, making them less fertile.

Effects of drinking

Another major reason for infertility across the globe is excessive drinking. A study showed that drinking up to five drinks a week can reduce the chances of conceiving in women and 10 drinks or more decreases the likelihood of conception even further. When it comes to men, alcohol can reduce testosterone levels which reduces libido. It can also damage the quality, structure and movement of sperm.

Effects of an unhealthy diet

Many say that overeating, weight gain and an unhealthy diet has a direct effect on fertility and reproductive health. Regular exercise and following a healthy diet is very crucial for not only maintaining good overall health but improves chances of conception in women and sperm count in men as well.

Lack of exercise

Exercise improves blood flow, stamina and your heart’s health. It also keeps you away from other disastrous health problems like blood pressure and diabetes. It also makes your body fit enough to carry a child. Maintaining the right body mass index by ensuring that you are not either underweight or overweight will improve fertility and reproductive health to a great extent.
