Food and diet rich to increase health of utreus and stimulate ovulation and reduce infertility. Plz suggest foods to induce/stimulate ovulation.

Food and diet rich to increase health of utreus and stimulate ovulation and reduce infertility. Plz suggest foods to induce/stimulate ovulation.

Reality check...: A generally healthy diet low in fats and with balanced protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals along with general good health and exercise, will increase "health of the uterus". However, diet alone will not "stimulate ovulation" or treat problems like endometriosis or scar tissue or ovulatory dysfunction, etc that contribute to infertility. ...Read more

Fertility: does drinking alcohol in moderation affect male fertility?

Fertility: does drinking alcohol in moderation affect male fertility?

Probably, yes: The real issue is in defining "alcohol use in moderation". For many this means daily alcohol intake of 1-4 alcoholic beverages, which is significant. Alcohol use can effect male hormone metabolism which in turn can effect hormone production. Some data suggest a lower take-home baby rate with ingestion of >4 drinks per week. ...Read more

Several issues: Dysmenorrhea is a common problem for women as they approach menopause. The birth control pill can be very helpful to control this. Women who are in their late 40's are perimenopausal, meaning close to menopause. At this time, your body is more sensitive to poor behaviors such as smoking and alcohol.

Does drinking alcohol affect your fertility?How long before you try to concieve should you stop drinking caffeine and alcohol i plan on ttc in july

Does drinking alcohol affect your fertility?How long before you try to concieve should you stop drinking caffeine and alcohol i plan on ttc in july

Moderation: First, you don't have to stop drinking caffeine as there's no harm for moderate caffeine consumption in pregnancy. 200mg a day is without any risks. As far as alcohol. A drink or two a week while trying to conceive likely won't affect your fertility, but if you want to be 100% safe, then abstain as soon as you are not using birth control. ...Read more

I'm wondering can the intake of high amounts of sugar, caffeine etc have an effect on your vaginal health?

I'm wondering can the intake of high amounts of sugar, caffeine etc have an effect on your vaginal health?

Yes : If you are taking a lot of sugar the excess can spill over and create an environment prone to yeast vaginitis. If you take too much you can gain weight and eventually may develop high blood pressure and complication. Caffeine will cause some high blood pressure and make some people have irritable bladder. Probably does not do much to the vagina. Etc is unclear. Everything in moderation. ...Read more

Will taking 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) daily affect my sperm count/fertilily in any way? Also, will drinking alcohol affect my sperm count/fertility?

Will taking 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) daily affect my sperm count/fertilily in any way? Also, will drinking alcohol affect my sperm count/fertility?

Xanax (alprazolam) is addicting : While Xanax (alprazolam) may not lower your sperm count it can most certainly over time decrease your libido (desire for sex). However the main issue with longterm use of drugs in this class (benzodiazepines) and in particular Xanax (alprazolam), is their addictive potential. Use with care, and I'd recommend not daily but only as you need. ...Read more

Can phentermine affect pcos? and help fertility

Can phentermine affect pcos? and help fertility

Weight loss: The 1st treatment for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) in overweight/obese women is weight loss, which must be a total lifestyle change in eating&exercise habits. In some cases, appetite suppressants (eg phentermine) can be helpful as a short-term aid; as weight comes off & appetite signals start working properly, it is no longer needed. Without permanent lifestyle change, phentermine = failure. ...Read more

Prescribed estrium and i3c for endometriosis and infertility by naturopath/pharmacist to detox and level estrogen. Will this actually help?

Who knows?: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative".

Does consuming caffein adversly affect fertility and how much is considered a safe amount to consume while trying to fall pregnant for male and female?

Does consuming caffein adversly affect fertility and how much is considered a safe amount to consume while trying to fall pregnant for male and female?

Dose dependent: No one knows for certain. Like most toxins, the more caffeine the higher the risk of problems. No one knows for sure if there is a 'threshhold effect, ' below that amount there is no impact. I usually counsel patients that one caffeinated drink per day is unlikely to have an effect on fertility. ...Read more

What diet pills are you able to take on a low dosage birth control pill ? Are caffeine ones not recommended ?  can caffeine bring fertility issues?

Diet pills: I don't recommend diet pills at all - they have unpleasant side effects and may help you lose weight temporarily but you don't want to depend on them to maintain weight loss. Consider limiting the times and places you can eat, and spending some time on small portions of exercise every day. Good luck. ...Read more
