Couples can increase their fertility by making smart health decisions and using a simple prescription fertility treatment known as the Conception Kit® at-home system.

There are many ways people can help improve their health to increase their fertility. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommends that both men and women focus on eating healthy foods, getting frequent exercise, and reducing stress to help increase their chances of conceiving a child. Additionally, the ASRM also encourages men and women to quit smoking in order to increase their health, fertility, and the health of their future children.   Smoking not only increases the risk for heart, vascular, and lung disease, but it also has a significant effect on the fertility rates among men and women. For this reason, one of the best things you can do to improve your health and fertility is to quit smoking and avoid second-hand smoke as well.

What Effect Does Smoking Have on Fertility?

The ASRM reports that smoking can have an impact on erectile dysfunction and pregnancy rates among men and women and states that infertility rates among male and female smokers is nearly twice that of infertility rates found among non-smokers. Furthermore, cigarettes contain dangerous chemicals such as nicotine and cyanide that can increase the loss rate of eggs in women. These eggs can never be replaced. The increased loss means that menopause may set on one to four years earlier in women who smoke which shortens the window of opportunity for those women to become pregnant.   In men, cigarette smoking can cause decreased sperm quality, decreased sperm count, and lower sperm motility. Furthermore, smoking can also damage the genetic material found in sperm and eggs and can cause miscarriage, birth-defects, and low-birth weights. All of these effects can also be found in people regularly exposed to secondhand smoke from a partner, family member, friend, or other person.

Increase Your Health and Fertility by Quitting

The ASRM strongly encourages people who are trying to become pregnant to quit smoking and find ways to avoid second hand smoke as well. By quitting smoking, an individual can actually improve their fertility rates, although the loss of eggs and damage to sperm cannot be reversed. Quitting smoking can be a very difficult process, but not impossible. The ASRM reports that studies have shown that people who work with a health professional have a higher rate of success.   Your doctor can provide tips and tools available to help you quit and can provide other information to help you increase other aspects of your health in the meantime.

Treat Infertility Easily at Home

There is also a prescription fertility treatment available from a doctor that can help couples increase their ability to conceive in the privacy of home. The Conception Kit® at-home system was developed to specifically address common infertility issues such as low sperm count and low sperm motility. The Conception Kit® uses timed intercourse and cervical insemination to provide an ideal environment for sperm to survive in within the vagina in close proximity to the cervical opening so they have the best chance of penetrating the cervix to fertilize the egg. The Conception Kit® is easy to use and very affordable. It is covered as a prescription benefit by most insurance companies for a co-pay of just $35 to $80. If you are interested in learning more about the Conception Kit® at-home system, you should speak with your medical professional to discuss your situation and obtain a prescription. It is an ideal way to address infertility issues commonly caused by smoking and to support the steps you and your partner are taking to increase your health and fertility.
