How to Prepare Your Body for Conception

October 08, 2021

IVF FLORIDA is offering simple lifestyle modifications you can make to help you reach your optimal health so you can prepare for a healthy pregnancy.

Exercise: One way to prepare your body for conception is through exercise. Moving your body for 30-minutes a day is a great way to prepare for pregnancy. However, don’t overdo it, as excessive exercise can be harmful. Discuss your activity levels with your physician to see if you need to make any adjustments to your activities.

Eat well: A balanced diet is another way to get on the path to a healthier lifestyle. Treat food as fuel and reach for fruits and veggies instead of chips and candy. Meeting with a nutritionist can also help you plan balanced, nutritious meals.

Quit smoking: Smoking has been shown to decrease a woman’s egg count and quality, as well as negatively impacting sperm quality in men. If you are planning to conceive, it would be best to quit now.

Reduce stress: Reducing stress is helpful while trying to conceive. Whether it’s sharing your experiences with others, trying acupuncture, or taking a yoga class, finding a way to reduce stress will increase your likelihood of continuing your course of treatment and promote a healthy pregnancy.
