It should come as no surprise that the lifestyle you lead directly affects your fertility. From making healthy lifestyle choices to supplementing your intake of important nutrients, there are many things you can do outside of the clinic to improve and maintain your chances of becoming pregnant.

Whether you are in the beginning stages of family planning or are currently seeking assistance from a fertility clinic, simple lifestyle adjustments and extra daily supplements can promote fertility.

There are several important changes you and your partner can make before and during fertility treatments to increase the chance of successful conception. We recommend making these lifestyle modifications if you are considering becoming pregnant.


Avoid alcohol use. Alcohol has been shown to cause birth defects in fetuses. In addition, patients who drink have a decrease in fertility rates, particularly with IVF and miscarriage rates have been shown to double compared to those who don’t drink alcohol. This has also similar effect on your husband.


Stop smoking and stay away from anyone who is smoking. Smoking has been implicated in infertility and earlier menopause. Smoking reduces success with IVF by about 50% and passive smoking has similar effects. This has also similar effect on your husband.


Stop recreational drugs and unnecessary medications. Please stop all medically unnecessary drugs prior to attempting pregnancy. If you are taking medications prescribed by another physician, please let us know so we can determine if the medications are safe to take when trying to conceive and during pregnancy. This goes for your partner as well.


Increase physical activity and lose weight if necessary. If you are overweight, it is a good idea to lose weight before trying to conceive. We encourage you to be physically active and to get your body into the best shape you can. In one study, obese women who exercised regularly had a three times higher chance of success with IVF. Women who are not obese should avoid strenuous exercise. Any level appears to be helpful for obese women.

Exercise for Enhancing Fertility

A healthy lifestyle where exercise is routine aids in successful conception in both men and women. Choose a moderate and consistent exercise routine that you can stick with. Since strenuous exercise can have a negative impact on achieving a successful pregnancy for the female. Moderate aerobic activities are advisable. Exercise enough to raise your heart rate, which decreases oxidative stress and increases blood flow without fully taxing your body.

  • Walking – Brisk, 30-minute walks 5-6 times per week burn calories and increase blood flow without stressing the body too harshly.

  • Yoga – Though this may look easy, maintaining poses and using often-overlooked muscle groups will get your heart pumping and cause you to break a sweat, which is helpful.

  • Swimming – This whole-body workout strengthens your core without placing too much stress on your joints. Keep an eye on your pace; your goal is to maintain a comfortable rhythm for at least 20 minutes that leaves you feeling invigorated, not gasping for breath.

  • Other Light Cardio – Light elliptical workouts, easy bicycling, or slow jogging are all great ways to get your heart pumping. But keep your resistance and speed moderate; a good pace is when you can still hold a full conversation during your workout.
