Diet and lifestyle

Lifestyle & Diet – Eating certain foods can improve your chances of a successful pregnancy and having a healthy baby. Plenty of fruit and vegetables (at least seven portions a day), ensuring that you have enough vitamins and minerals, and taking regular exercise are also believed to improve your chances of conception.

At the Agora, we can offer you advice about how to improve your fertility by achieving the correct body mass index (BMI), which can help you to ovulate regularly. Poor diet, smoking, having too much caffeine or alcohol, and being either underweight or overweight can also have a significant effect on your overall fertility, whether you are male or female.

Making changes to your diet and lifestyle can also help if you have other problems including:
