Fertility Facts Friday!
Cleveland Clinic fertility expert, Cynthia Austin, M.D., lays out several factors that contribute to fertility issues for couples in the article, "2 Your Health: Do's and don'ts for boosting odds of becoming pregnant," by Carolyn Murray.
Although age is the number one factor, either partner being overweight or underweight, can negatively impact fertility. Additionally, either partner of a couple drinking in excess, or smoking, will experience decreased fertility. Also, excessive exercise can lead to fertility problems.
"Dr. Austin reminds couples that it's normal for it to take six months to a year to get pregnant. However, if it’s been more than a year, or more than six months if a woman is into her late 30s or early 40s, she recommends seeking the help of a fertility doctor." - Carolyn Murray
