If you have been trying to get pregnant, the continued reality of not getting a positive result in your tests can be discouraging. Just like chickens, humans are creatures that need an encouraging environment for laying and making eggs. If you are working in a stressful or exhausting environment, it is likely to decrease how frequently and easily you get pregnant. This is particularly true if you are the woman. Research indicates that altering the circadian rhythm plays a large part in hurting the fertility of humans. There are many factors that can play into infertility. A few of them include:
- Being older than 35
If you want to get pregnant, it may help you to have a more normal shift that does not rotate strangely through different hours. What is annoying about many workplaces is they unfairly discriminate against younger and less experienced workers who would more likely want to get pregnant. Feel free to report any discrimination you see at the Department of Labor. It is wrong for employers to make life hard for employees because of their inexperience. The fact, that shift work can have a negative impact on fertility has already been demonstrated by studies. They found, that women, who are active at night or in changing shifts, have less mature eggs. Talk with your boss about the night shift. It is laudable to have the courage to speak your mind about problems. Most managers are secretly afraid of a lawsuit. Those who address the issue can get a lot of headway just by being honest. When it comes down to it, do not try to overwork yourself if it is hurting your health and your family’s future.
Also certain medications can affect fertility. These include, for example, antidepressants, neuroleptics or certain antihypertensive agents. In men, beta blocker, blood pressure reducers, antihistamines and anabolic steroids can reduce sperm quality.
Some chemicals can linger in your body for years and hinder your fertility. It might be helpful to go through a comprehensive detox program to remove chemicals that built up in your body during your usage of chemical drugs. Intestinal cleansing is important since the connective tissue is purified, which in turn results in postive effects on the hormone level, which comes back into balance. When both partners opt for such treatment and detoxify the body, fertility increases on both sides. Taking chemical birth control methods lik the pill usually does not have a negative effect on fertility, but it may take some cycles until the hormonal balance is restored.
A healthy diet can also help to improve fertility. There are many powerful vegetables that can be applied to remove chemical gunk from our bodies. Some good ones to try include:
If it is green and a veggie, it is good. Try adding some of these to your diet, and see if that helps a little. Sometimes, the chemicals in our body are just a little out of whack. Often, a bad diet is the villain. Consuming the proper foods can get us back on track.
