Healthy life and reproduction
Due to changes in human behavior, the quality of life of people has improved significantly, however these changes in the current lifestyle can have a negative impact on the fertility of men and women.
In this sense, it is important to lead healthy lifestyle habits even before thinking about forming a family with biological children, this will help not only to achieve pregnancy but will allow a good embryonic development during pregnancy and will improve the health of the newborn in the future.
If you are planning to be a mother, it is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle, start to take care of your diet, since one of the most frequent factors in patients with infertility tends to be poor diet, another important factor to consider is the consumption of tobacco and alcohol.
Next we will talk about the different factors to consider if you are thinking about being parents.
At this point it is important to keep a balance since if you have a body mass index lower than normal, it is likely that you will suffer from anovulation or amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) this usually happens to women who exercise excessively such as athletes, dancers and athletes.
On the other hand, if they are overweight, that is, the BMI is higher than normal, it is possible that they suffer from alterations in the menstrual cycle and therefore a low possibility of achieving pregnancy, an increase in the rate of abortions and risks associated with the obesity such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, premature births among others. For its part, the health of the newborn can also be affected.
Smoking doubles the risk of infertility. Cigarette smoke contains chemicals such as nicotine, carbon monoxide and cyanide, which have a high impact on the reproductive health of people, since it affects the production of gametes, that is, the ova and sperm of men and women.
In the case of women, smoking accelerates the loss of oocytes, which is a great problem for the ovarian reserve of women, as well as affecting their quality and accelerating menopause. Likewise, in Men, the quality of sperm decreases, which influences the low mobility and fertilization capacity of the eggs.
Excessive alcohol consumption: Alcohol, like tobacco, if consumed in excess can have serious implications on human fertility, such as low gamete production, difficulty in achieving pregnancy, and increased risk of miscarriage, among others.
From @Celagem We recommend couples seeking to achieve pregnancy, begin healthy lifestyle habits, such as eating a good diet and stopping tobacco and alcohol consumption from 4 to 6 months before.
It is important to take these factors into account if you are looking to start a healthy reproductive life, since with the daily worries and stress levels it is possible that our fertility is affected.
