NATIONAL FERTILITY WEEK IN FULL SWING

September 3rd, 2013

Fertility is a big health issue as problems with it can be extremely upsetting and stressful.

This week, from September 2-8, the Fertility Coalition Australia is running National Fertility Week in order to raise awareness across the country about preconception health and how to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

The Fertility Coalition lists age, weight, smoking, alcohol and timing as the biggest factors affecting fertility. For example, once a woman hits the age of 32 her chances of conceiving begin to gradually decrease. As well as this, fertility can decrease even with limited alcohol consumption and decreases rapidly with smoking. Being obese or underweight also inhibits a woman from conceiving a baby as easily.

Timing is also incredibly important and can be overlooked. You're most likely to conceive in the three days leading up to and including ovulation, however the six days before are also a good bet, so take note.

Nine per cent of couples have trouble conceiving along the road, so consult a doctor if you've been trying for a baby but nothing seems to be happening.

Remember though that fertility isn't all about the woman! Men also become less fertile with age, and being overweight, a smoker and consuming alcohol can also affect men's fertility as much as they do for women, so don't let the men in your life become complacent.
