Fertility is your capacity to conceive and bring a child into the world. For women, this hinges on the monthly release of a viable egg, while for men, it’s all about the quality of their sperm. Various elements, from age and lifestyle to medical issues, can impact your fertility.
Age is a significant factor, with fertility rates generally declining as you get older, more so for women than men. Your lifestyle choices, including what you eat, how active you are, and your stress levels, are also pivotal. Both you and your partner have roles to play in this journey, so joint efforts in leading a healthy lifestyle can make a real difference. Understanding these basics can empower you to make smart choices that enhance your fertility.
