Are you trying to get pregnant and interested in using supplements to increase your fertility? There are several things that you should and shouldn’t do when using fertility supplements.

Make sure that when choosing a supplement use one that is high quality with pure ingredients that actually work. Pick a supplement that can be absorbed easily by your body.

When taking a supplement, make sure to eat food as well, as they are best absorbed that way. If possible, take supplements during mealtime where you will have meals that contain protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and fat. The fats help with absorption of vitamins D and E and the fiber contributes to healthy bowel movements. Also, drink 8-10 glasses of water each day to keep cells hydrated and makes it easier for the kidneys to get rid of waste.

Things not to do when using fertility supplements?

Avoid mixing and matching supplements, your body needs a variety of nutrients that work in tandem with each other.  Also, avoid using supplements meant for specific hormones. Instead, use a supplement that focuses on your overall health while boosting fertility. If you have an irregular menstrual cycle, don’t take a supplement that has iron. You want to avoid an excessive buildup of iron in your bloodstream.  

Additionally, make sure you get enough protein in your meals.  Sources include meat, eggs, fish, tofu and other products that are meat substitutes.

Men also need to take fertility supplements as well. Fertility supplements are useful for a couple trying to get pregnant, used appropriately.
