There are certainly some things you can do as a couple to enhance and improve your chances
of conceiving. We strongly encourage you to initiate each of these steps that may apply to you.

  1. Stop smoking! There is no question that cigarette smoking has an adverse effect on a couple’s chance of conceiving. It has been estimated that chances are reduced by as much as 50%. Everyone says that that they will quit when they are pregnant so assume that you are going to be successful and just do it now.
  2. Lose weight. Obesity decreases the chances of conception and increases pregnancy complications.
  3. Limit caffeine. Consume no more than two caffeinated beverages daily.
  4. Limit alcohol. Occasional alcohol is ok but excessive intake can have detrimental effects. Alcohol should be stopped when fertility injections start.
  5. Eat a healthy well balanced diet and get plenty of rest. This is a good time to start prenatal vitamins. Any brand is ok. Avoid any herbal supplements or medications that are not FDA approved.
  6. De-stress. Excessive levels of stress can affect your physical and emotional well being and decrease your chances of conceiving and your ability to cope emotionally with the frustrations of infertility.
