Fertility Preservation

Since a woman’s fertility begins to decline as early as her late twenties, it makes sense to do as much as you can to remain healthy and maintain your chances of conceiving well into your thirties and beyond. But it’s not just women who need to pay attention. Men’s fertility also declines with age.

What can you do your protect your ability to get pregnant?

  • Don’t smoke. It can cause early menopause and lowered sperm counts.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise.
  • Keep control of stress.
  • See your ob/gyn regularly. Thyroid conditions, PCOS, and endometriosis all benefit from early detection and treatment.
  • Protect yourself against STDs. Chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, and HPV can all lead to infertility or sterility.
  • Avoid environmental toxins as much as possible. Mercury in fish and the chemical benzene have both been linked to reduced fertility.
  • Consider freezing your eggs for use at a later date. Cryopreservation can be particularly useful for those with a family history of reproductive difficulties or early menopause. It can also help maintain the possibility of future pregnancy for women with cancer. Sperm can also be frozen, for use at a later date.

It’s all too easy to put off thinking about fertility until you want to get pregnant, but sometimes it is too late by then. There are no guarantees, and even the healthiest couples can still face problems conceiving. However, if you know that certain factors can contribute to worsening your reproductive health, doesn’t it make sense to avoid them?
