Age and Fertility
With age, egg quantity and quality diminish. Sperm quality and male fertility also decline with age. Planning for this reality is an important part of proactive fertility care.
Body Weight and Hormones
For both men and women, body weight can alter hormones, leading to decreased fertility. Lifestyle change can help.
Excess alcohol or caffeine, smoking, and recreational drugs can negatively impact fertility in women and even in men, and can also cause pregnancy complications.
Balanced physical activity is important to general wellbeing and fertility. The ideal amount and kind of physical activity can vary between individuals and should be personalized.
