Optimise your fertility

Dealing with infertility issues

Good nutrition can help boost your fertility.

Many couples struggle when it comes to having children – fertility issues are more common than you may think.

Infertility is when a couple can’t get pregnant despite having regular unprotected sex. The common definition is when pregnancy has not occurred after more than a year.

According to the NHS, some 84 percent of couples will conceive naturally within a year if they have regular sex every two or three days. While that percentage may seem high, it still means that one in seven couples may have difficulty conceiving – that’s approximately 3.5 million people in the UK.

There are many potential causes of infertility, and fertility problems can affect either the man or the woman in a couple. But in a quarter of cases it isn’t possible to identify the cause.

Can nutrition help increase our chances of getting pregnant?

Trying and being unable to conceive easily can be a stressful period for a couple – seeking medical advice from health professionals, reducing stress, living a healthier lifestyle and having better eating habits may all help increase the chances of a couple getting pregnant.

How Endure can help

I understand the barriers to getting pregnant – my wife and I had trouble conceiving for many years and we were only successful when we made health and lifestyle changes that increased our chances.

My training emphasised a functional medicine approach to look holistically and individually at each client’s personal circumstances. I’ll attempt to identify any nutritional and lifestyle imbalances that might be reducing your chances of getting pregnant.

I’ll work closely with other healthcare professionals who are assisting you in your attempts to conceive to ensure our approaches are streamlined to give you the best possible chance of conceiving.

What you can expect

  • Before we meet both partners will be asked to complete a nutritional health questionnaire and food diary.
  • At the first consultation we will start to look at ways we can help. These may be basic changes to your nutrition or exercise regime or ways of better managing your stress levels.
  • I will run your food diary through software to ensure your intake is in line with recommendations.
  • I may recommend further tests or offer advice on supplements that may increase your chances of pregnancy.
  • I’ll be with you every step of the way to help as much as I can.
