Ask the Dietitian…

The food we eat feeds all of our cells. Our oocytes and sperm are no different from heart or liver, or skin cells and need nutrients to work properly.

It is possible to improve your fertility through diet and nutrition. Poor sperm quality, obesity, conditions like PCOS and endometriosis, and being underweight, as well as just being a little older as a woman can all be profoundly improved through good, evidence-based nutrition. Like many things in reproduction a change in diet or lifestyle takes around 3 months before it is seen at the level of eggs and sperm. Good nutrition of course extends into pregnancy and beyond too.
