6 Hidden Reasons Why You Aren’t Getting Pregnant


It is well known that the key factors that decrease the likelihood of raising a child are: abortion and breastfeeding, using birth control pills, smoking. Quite often, though, even the lack of these factors doesn’t mean you’re going to get pregnant.

6. You consume too many trans fats.


Eating trans fats, found in baked goods, pizzas, snacks such as chips, fried foods, may have a detrimental effect on fertility, which means there is no ovulation. As eating them instead of healthy carbohydrates can cause up to a 73 percent increased risk of anovulatory disorder, aim to reduce the intake of these foods. It’s easier to eat snacks like bananas, whole grain rye crispbread, almonds, or yogurt with berries when you’re craving these trans fat carbs.

5. You are overexercising.

Exercising will increase your fertility to a certain degree, but having the right amount of exercise is crucial. Doing too much will affect your energy level and affect your reproductive cycle negatively. Research has shown that the ability to get pregnant can be impaired by long and vigorous daily exercise. The secret to preserving your health and wellbeing is moderation.

4. Your body mass index is low.

It may put you at increased risk of ovarian failure, infertility, and preterm birth if you have a lower than average BMI. A lower BMI can be associated with eating disorders and can also affect menstruation and fertility negatively. You may use advanced apps that monitor your calories and weight as well as other health-related symptoms if you feel unable to keep track of your diet.

3. Your partner is stressed out.

Studies show that the fertility of a man, including employment, family, and social life, is significantly influenced by life stressors. Being unable to deal with these concerns has the biggest detrimental effect.

2. You use the wrong lubricant.

Carefully pick the right form of lubricant for you to increase the chances of a pregnancy. The good news: lubricants are available that could be useful for male fertility. Some have a suitable pH level (7.2-8.0). Others contain magnesium ions and calcium that resemble the natural fluids of the body itself. It’s also shown that it can work with baby oil.

1. You can’t calculate your fertile window correctly.
