The 90-Day Countdown to Conception: What You Need to Do to Increase Fertility

Did you know 90 days before conception is vital to a successful and healthy pregnancy? In fact, many couples don’t realize how much they can do in this short amount of time to increase their fertility and chances of getting pregnant. If you’re trying to conceive, make sure you read this blog post! We’ll discuss everything you need to do during the 90-day countdown to conception.

Nutrition: Eating a balanced diet is key to your overall health and increasing your fertility. During the 90-day countdown to conception, focus on eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats like avocado and olive oil. Make sure to stay away from processed foods and sugary snacks.

Exercise: Regular exercise can help improve fertility by helping you to maintain a healthy weight. A sedentary lifestyle has been linked to infertility, so make sure you are getting at least 30 minutes of moderate activity each day. This can include walking, running, swimming, or any other activity you enjoy.

Stress Management: During the 90-day countdown to conception, it is important to manage your stress levels as much as possible. Stress has been linked to infertility and can cause hormone imbalances that interfere with ovulation and implantation. Try to make time for relaxation activities such as yoga and meditation.

Alcohol and Caffeine:  Both alcohol and caffeine have been linked to decreased fertility in both men and women. During the 90-day countdown to conception, it is important to reduce or eliminate these substances from your diet. Marijuana and tobacco are also known to have a negative effect on fertility.

Supplements for egg quality:  If you are in the 90-day countdown to conception, talk to your doctor about supplements that can help improve egg quality. These may include antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D.

Supplements for sperm quality: Men can also benefit from taking specific supplements to improve sperm quality. These include zinc, selenium, and vitamins C, and E.

Fertility tracking: Tracking your fertility signs during the 90-day countdown can help you identify your most fertile days and increase your chances of conception. These signs include basal body temperature, cervical mucus, and ovulation predictor kits.

Fertility Specialist: If you have been trying to conceive for more than one year without success, talk to your doctor about seeing a fertility specialist. They can help identify any underlying issues that may be contributing to infertility and recommend the best treatment plan for you.

Acupuncture: Studies have shown that acupuncture can improve egg and sperm quality, as well as regulate hormone balance in the body. Acupuncture can also reduce stress, improve blood flow to the reproductive organs and encourage relaxation.

At the end of the day, it is important to remember that fertility can be affected by various factors. These are just some things you can do during the 90-day countdown to conception. With the right lifestyle choices, you can give yourself the best chances of conceiving and one step closer to welcoming a baby into your life.
