Experts have conducted recent studies on dietary practices and specific foods that prospective parents should consider including or excluding from their diets to increase the chances of conception.
Although the focus is typically on the person who will become pregnant when it comes to fertility, it is crucial for the supporting spouse to adopt activities that promote fertility. In fact, about 50% of infertility cases are caused by male partners with low sperm production or quality.
According to Medicalnewstoday, there are certain foods that couples should avoid when trying to conceive:
- Processed and red meats: Studies suggest that consuming large amounts of processed and red meats, such as beef, bacon, hot dogs, and sausage, may contribute to infertility in both men and women. According to healthline Men who consumed a lot of processed meat had sperm that was less abundant, motile, and of lower quality than those who ate fish, according to one study.
- Baked products: Baked pastries, donuts, and cakes, especially those that have been fried or contain margarine, may be high in trans and saturated fats. Consuming these fats is associated with poorer reproductive outcomes. Trans fats have been linked to fertility problems, particularly when they make up more than 1% of total calories.
- Beverages with processed sugar: Regular consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, defined as drinking at least 7 drinks per week, was found to decrease fertility in both males and females, according to a study of 3,828 women and 1,045 of their male partners who were considering getting pregnant.
