About 15% of couples have difficulty conceiving a child, especially during the first year. Female infertility is most often to problems with ovulation or obstructions in the tubes, while males may have the disadvantage of the quality of their sperm, which is measured by the amount of sperm, its mobility and density.

To lower your stress, try to distract you in some sort of something you like, would not be bad to try yoga or tai chi, disciplines that will help you vent stress since, among other things, will teach you how to breathe properly to relieve stress. You can also opt for a massage. This point is important to men too, because they will produce sperm in the testicles, for storage in the seminal vesicles.

Try to avoid processed foods, refined sugar. Include, if necessary, a multi vitamin. Consume foods rich in protein and carbohydrates. The ideal is to keep a body free of toxins as possible, avoid smoking or excessive drinking.
