Spring is here, and change is in the air. Historically, it is also a time of rebirth and reawakening.
For those struggling with sub-fertility and infertility, a sense of new beginnings can be a welcome shift. As the weather warms up and the outdoors beckons, the desire to re-evaluate goals, including improved diet and more frequent exercise, comes naturally.
While your fertility doctor analyzes the obvious factors affecting your fertility including the health of your eggs, tubes, uterus, and also your partner’s sperm, the natural rhythm of spring makes it the perfect time for you to dig deeper and consider other factors that may be affecting your health and ability to conceive. Just as chicks bust out of their shells in the springtime and butterflies emerge from their cocoons, so can you shake off the stagnant feelings that are associated with winter and dive in to take the steps necessary to change your lifestyle for the better.
