“Fertility & Pre-Conception”
Essentials for Women:
- Certain diet-related nutritional deficiencies can affect ovulation and the ability to conceive.
- Some foods can contribute to inflammation and infertility. You may need a flexible, customized, simple Low Inflammation Diet for a few weeks to calm things down!
- Exercising too much or being too inactive can both affect your ability to conceive.
- Most lubricants should be avoided when you are trying to get pregnant. Beve can help with brands that promote fertility.
- Both a “high-quality” prenatal supplement with iron PLUS a high DHA “omega-3″ supplement are needed immediately. Beve can help with specific brands that are safe and concentrated so you need fewer daily doses.
- Avoiding iron deficiency anemia before pregnancy is recommended since low iron can contribute to “morning sickness.” Screening tests for anemia may not show your real iron status.
