A recent medical study links common household chemicals to female reproductive issues and recommends consumers make conscientious natural choices to avoid these in the home.

April, 2016 - There are simple ways to help improve personal health to increase the chances of successfully getting pregnant. While many people focus on adding healthy habits to their lifestyle, it is also important to understand what habits and environmental factors you can eliminate. For example, a recent study was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism that outlined specific chemicals that have been linked with common female infertility issues. The report named phthalates and diphenyldichloroethene (DDE) as two chemicals that have been uniquely tied to female infertility problems. In a related health article, CNN explained that these specific chemicals can be found in household substances and called out the importance of avoiding these chemicals to protect reproductive health.

The medical report stated that both phthalates and DDE were linked to the development of fibroids and endometriosis in a small group of studies. Both of these health conditions can cause female reproductive issues and affect an estimated 70% of women. Because of the health hazards posed by these chemicals, people are encouraged to avoid them as much as possible. Common household items that contain phthalates and DDE include:

  • Canned foods that contain BPA
  • Highly processed foods that absorb phthalates from packaging
  • Chemical dust that accumulates on carpets or air filters
  • Plastic materials such as shower curtains that contain phthalates
  • Plastic containers such as water bottles that contain BPA

Additionally, the Mayo Clinic also recommends people avoid industrial chemicals that contain benzenes, toluene, xylene, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, painting materials, and heavy metals or lead that can lead to lowered sperm counts.

If a person is affected by low sperm count or low sperm motility there are fertility treatment options available that can effectively overcome these issues. For example, the Conception Kit® at-home system is a comprehensive, FDA-cleared prescription medical device designed to help couples go beyond ovulation timing to overcome common fertility problems including low sperm count, low sperm motility, and pH imbalance. It can safely be used in combination with fertility medications to boost the chances of conception during each medication cycle. The Conception Kit® is used in the privacy of home and does not require prior clinical testing or invasive treatment procedures. Utilizing a combination of ovulation timing and cervical cap insemination, it allows couples to maximize their chances of conceiving in a safe and natural way.
