Did you know that over 48 million couples and 186 million individuals live with infertility worldwide? Did you know that 10-15% of couples in the United States struggle with infertility? These statistics can seem pretty daunting.
Infertility is the failure to achieve a pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. If you or someone you know has struggled with infertility, then you know how hopeless this can feel. Yes, many medical interventions exist, such as IVF and surrogacy. However, these are often expensive and quite troublesome for the body.
What if we told you there is a way to increase fertility by altering and improving your diet? This seems too easy, right? Maybe too good to be true? Well, you’re in luck! Our Registered Dietitian, Kay Williams, is newly certified in Nutrition and Fertility.
Infertility affects men and women alike. Kay can tailor a plan exactly for you and your partner by optimizing carbohydrate, fat, and protein intake and identifying possible nutrient deficiencies. Unfortunately, there will always be factors we can’t control, such as age and egg count. However, through these dietary interventions, there is so much that we can do:
- Increase the quality of eggs
- Increase the quality of sperm
- Increase the actual sperm count
- Aid you in entering and remaining in a healthy weight range
- Find a diet that will work for you to increase fertility
- Identify specific nutrients to supplement
