    Last updated 2 days 6 hours ago

    If you and your partner are having trouble conceiving a child, you can obtain male and female fertility services at a reproductive medicine clinic serving Toronto. During your consultation, you may be asked about various lifestyle questions that may influence your fertility.  Factors such as alcohol and tobacco use maybe having a negative effect on your overall fertility health. In many cases, taking steps to modify your lifestyle may boost your chances of conceiving a child with the help of assisted reproduction.

    Body Mass Index
    Your body mass index (BMI) is a number that reflects a comparison of your weight to your height. A BMI of 30 or higher indicates obesity, while a number between 25 and 29.9 indicates being overweight. Being overweight or obese can increase the risk of infertility because it interferes with the normal production of hormones. It may also increase the risk of miscarriage. Likewise, being underweight can also lead to infertility. If your BMI is outside the normal range, consider talking to your physician about healthy ways to improve it.

    Smoking
    It’s well known that women should never smoke at any point during their pregnancy, as this can cause life-threatening health problems for the baby. However, did you know that smoking can also affect your ability to become pregnant? Even men face who smoke can face sperm related problems.

    Alcohol
    Just like smoking, alcohol consumption can adversely affect fertility in both men and women. For example, alcohol consumption in men can damage the sperm. It’s advisable to either consume alcohol in moderation or to avoid it entirely. Moderation is widely considered to be no more than one drink daily for women and no more than two drinks daily for men.

The displacement of endometrial tissue can lead to the development of scar tissue and can cause infertility if it obstructs the fallopian tubes.

    When couples consult a Fertility Specialist in Toronto, they’ll receive personalized treatment recommendations. Some of the options may include intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or the use of third-party reproduction (sperm donor/egg donor).  In addition to their reproductive therapy, a patient may decide to take fertility supplements to help improve their chances of success.

    Research has demonstrated that women can benefit from taking multivitamins and other supplements during their fertility treatment. Mineral and multivitamin supplements have been associated with lower oxidative stress in women who are undergoing IVF cycles. Reproductive medicine specialists recommend that women begin taking antioxidant vitamins every day for at least three to six months. An ideal combination would include vitamins B6, B9, B12, zinc, iron, magnesium, and copper.
