Fertility risk factors:
Reading and reacting to signs of infertility
Physical reasons may cause you to have trouble getting pregnant. Unfortunately, one of the leading risk factors for infertility is out of your control: age. The health of a woman’s eggs declines after age 35.
You can, however, make lifestyle choices that increase your chances for getting pregnant.
- Studies link cigarette smoke with infertility, and an increased risk of miscarriage.
- It’s unclear just how alcohol impacts infertility, but Dr. Esteban Brown recommends that his patients abstain from excessive drinking during treatment. Too much caffeine may also hinder fertility.
- Maintain a healthy body weight to keep the reproductive system on track.
- Ask us about environmental workplace toxins associated with infertility.
We know how much you wish to become pregnant. Fertility risk factors impact success, so Dr. Brown will help you understand your active role in fertility and design a treatment course that helps you achieve your goal.
