4 Quick Fertility Tips for the Holiday Season

Smoothie.pngThe holidays are a time of giving gifts, spending time with family and reflecting upon life. For those who are trying to conceive, the best gift they can think of is often a positive pregnancy test. These fertility tips for holidays can help you to get the best holiday gift anyone could ask for.

The top four quick fertility tips for holidays are:

Watch What You Eat

The holidays are often full of food. From decadent deserts to multiple course family meals, food is ever present during the holiday season. While it may be tempting to over eat, maintaining a healthy weight is crucial to your fertility health. For both men and women, being overweight can cause issues with fertility. At the same time, not eating enough can also result in fertility issues. The best bet is to eat a well-balanced diet full of fruit and vegetables as well as lean protein. Staying hydrated can help you to feel full and less likely to overindulge.

Avoid Alcohol

Alcohol can interfere with fertility rates in men and women. This doesn’t mean you have to skip the champagne toast. However, drinking more than three alcoholic beverages per week can negatively impact fertility. Drinking sparking water or a virgin version of your favorite drink can make skipping alcohol a bit easier.

Relax

Holiday events and preparations can be stressful. Make sure you take some time for yourself to relax. A trip to the spa, taking some quiet time to read or allowing yourself a midday nap can help to relieve stress. Stress can negatively impact fertility, so relaxing during the holidays is critically important.

Enjoy Sex

While you’re trying to conceive, sex can become a mechanical process. In order to get pregnant, timing is important. For your relationship and your own wellbeing, it is important to enjoy sex as well. Use the holidays as a time to get close with your partner and to enjoy sex without thinking about the fertility timeline.
