Fertility Resolutions for 2021: New Year’s Goals to Boost Your Chances of Conceiving

fertility resolutions 2021
The New Year is the perfect opportunity to make some big changes in your life and renew your resolutions. If you’ve wanted to start a family for a long time, but have been holding off until the right time in your life, then 2021 could be your year! Start this exciting new chapter in your life by following these fertility 2021 resolutions to boost your chances of conceiving.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Taking good care of your health is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your future children. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and eating well can help increase your chances of successful conception and having a healthy pregnancy. Of course, maintaining a healthy lifestyle includes taking care of your physical and mental health. Both have to be in perfect alignment in order for you to be ready to conceive and have children.

Communicate Clearly with Your Partner

Additionally, you and your partner both have to be on the same page in terms of what your future goals are. Be absolutely certain that you and your partner both want to have children. Moreover, you should also be on the same page about the path to conception and pregnancy you’re prepared for and want to take. Not all couples are capable of conceiving naturally and may therefore have to make some challenging decisions like whether IVF or IUI are the right paths. Talk to your partner and make sure that you both understand your specific situation and your options.

Keep a Positive Attitude

2020 has been an incredibly tough year for everyone. Bringing a little bundle of joy into the world could be the light that you need in your life right now. But if you’re having a hard time conceiving, don’t lose hope. There are plenty of paths to conception and you just have to find the right one for you. Try to keep your spirits up and speak to a fertility specialist who can help guide you in the right direction for your specific needs.

Manage Your Stress Levels

A small level of stress, especially when dealing with particularly challenging situations, is normal. Too much stress, however, can be detrimental to your health. An overabundance of cortisol (otherwise known as the stress hormone) can actually hinder your chances of conceiving. Try to find ways of decompressing to manage your stress effectively like meditation, yoga, other forms of exercise, massage therapy, or acupuncture to name a few. Taking up new hobbies like knitting, reading, or going for walks around your neighbourhood can also help you de-stress.

Quit Smoking and Drinking

If you’re planning on conceiving any time soon, then it’s in your best interest to quit smoking and start limiting your alcohol intake from now. The toxic chemicals in cigarettes and alcohol have been proven to diminish sperm counts, motility, and sperm fertilizing function in men. Smoking also diminishes ovarian flow and the quality of eggs women produce, not to mention the fact that it’s extremely detrimental to fetal development.
