In the last 20 years, fertility problems have increased. Most experts define infertility as not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying. It is estimated that around 25% of couples are turning to fertility treatments to help them have a family.

Fertility and speed of conception can depend on many things including your nutritional status. Nutritional therapy can be used as an alternative or in combination with assisted fertility treatment to maximise female health, fertility and promote conception. Unexplained infertility, poor sperm quality, recurrent miscarriage and PCOS menstrual irregularities are areas in which nutritional therapy can support:

  • Certain fats can balance hormone levels

  • Some foods can improve the quality of a woman’s eggs

  • Zinc can increase sperm count and reduce miscarriage 

  • Antioxidants can help prevent against birth defects, miscarriage and increase the production of good quality, healthy sperm

  • Some vitamins increase sperm quality and stop it from clumping or sticking together

  • Other nutrients can increase the flow of blood to the uterus, helping to provide a more fertile environment for the embryo to grow and develop

Other areas in which nutrition can support are:

  • Peri-menopause, menopause and beyond

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

  • Thyroid and Adrenal conditions
