What not to eat while trying to conceive?

Info

Many doctors recommend a nutritional diet when you try to conceive. A healthy diet contains an essential nutritional value that may help optimize fertility health in both men and women. Along with a good diet and lifestyle, it is essential to know what to avoid when trying to get pregnant.

In this blog, we'll cover both foods and food groups to avoid when trying to conceive. With this knowledge in hand, you might be able to dodge every infertility-causing food that tries to make it difficult for you to achieve your parenthood dream.



Foods to avoid when trying to get pregnant

Junk Food (snacks and beverages like soda)

There is evidence that women with infertility related to irregular periods may greatly benefit from reducing their intake of sugar and processed foods. Research also suggests that high fast-food consumption may delay your good news of pregnancy. So, it is better to avoid them or at least make a balanced diet when you try to conceive.


High Processed Food

High consumption of processed food and meat such as bacon and sausage are likely to contribute to infertility for people of all genders. A study also found that men who consumed a large amount of processed meat have seen lower sperm quantity, quality, and motility.


Excessive Caffeine Intake

It is generally recommended to minimize your coffee intake while you plan to conceive. The high consumption of caffeine may reduce fertility and in some rare cases also result in miscarriage. While a normal intake of coffee in a day is considered normal and doesn’t affect fertility, but you should avoid the excess of it.


Trans Fats

Food with trans fats should be avoided when trying to get pregnant as they can cause inflammation and insulin resistance that may lower fertility.


Low-fat dairy Products

Dairy products such as low-fat milk, yogurt, etc. contain androgens that can interfere with the menstrual cycle. So it is better to eliminate or minimize the intake of such low-fat dairy products.


Raw animal products

Raw animal meat, seafood, and eggs may also affect reproductive hormones. It is suggested to cook all animal products thoroughly.


High Alcohol consumption

It is better to minimize alcohol consumption as it can impair the ability to conceive for both men and women. Drinking too much alcohol can cause an imbalance in sex hormones, therefore fertility doctor always suggests lowering its consumption while you try to get pregnant.

Eating well isn’t always easy, especially when you are trying to conceive. However, a healthy diet can make a difference if you have fertility issues. A healthy nutritional diet can significantly improve the chances of conceiving.

Also, if you’re diagnosed with infertility it is essential to know that infertility affects many people worldwide, however, assisted reproductive technologies like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) are making it easy to overcome any fertility issue.

Along with IVF you can also play a significant part in adding up to its success rate by simply adopting a healthy lifestyle and changing your eating habits. We highly recommend you to consult a fertility expert at Crysta IVF to know more about food you should eat or avoid when you try to conceive.
