Foods To Avoid When Trying-To -Conceive

Jan 19, 2017 By Augusta Ukpong
The  period of trying- to- conceive can very daunting for a trying- to- conceive brides, couples or partners, it leave the individuals  emotionally and financially drained from running from pillar to post. But it is pertinent to always inculcate changes or maintain a healthy lifestyle that will not be detrimental or militate against one's fertility progress in the long run.

A renowned gynecologist, professor Elizabeth Smith of the Medical Foundation college believe that nutrition and diets should be the core areas that should be taken seriously when trying- to -conceive, because it is likely to make or mar fertility in the long run and Nutrition choices when trying to conceive can greatly influence one's chances of conceiving.

So when trying- to- conceive, it is up to partners to be knowledgeable in the areas of nutrition  to know the food to consume and especially those to avoid when trying-to –conceive or better still find a better alternative for these avoided food, so as not to  mar the fertility journey with their diets.

Reasons for avoiding certain food consumption when trying to conceive was greatly captured in a book written by Pascal Simon of the University of Alberta in his book "Nutrition and Wellness" he postulated that the following are the reasons some foods should not be consumed while trying to be pregnant.
·         Consuming alcohol before conception can leads to fetal alcohol syndrome, which is medically proven to stunts the mental and physical development of a child.
·         These avoidable foods can leads to miscarriage, if one eventually get pregnant
·         For a man trying to impregnate his partner, can be prone to lower sperm count, poor sperm quality, lower  testosterone levels and impotence with consuming what should be avoided like alcohol or tobacco.
·         Foods that contain listeria bacteria like cheeses, unpasteurized dairy products causes listeriosis i.e. an influenza that leads to early miscarriage, which is why such food should be avoided.
·         Some foods actually increased the risk of miscarriage and low birth weight for babies if conception finally occurred like consumption of caffeine, it is pertinent one is aware of this to avoid it consumption
·         Smoking in any form when trying- to -conceive takes longer time for partners, it also makes women's eggs more prone to genetic abnormalities, and also increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
·         Some of these foods brings about sperm abnormality and less swimming speed for the sperm.

Having known the reasons for avoiding certain foods or consumption while trying to get pregnant, we will progress to naming those foods and drinks we should avoid in totality while trying to get pregnant. They are;

Alcohol

This is number one culprit because of the havoc alcohol wreck on the reproductive system of both sexes, in a study carried out by medical experts with couples trying- to- conceive, it was found out that there is a great link between  alcohol consumption and decreased in fertility of individuals. With this finding it was advocated that alcohol should be outrighly cut off for couples trying to conceive. It was also observed by food standards agency that some elements in alcoholic drinks militate against healthy sperm in men and advises for a cut off of alcoholic drinks for men trying to get their partners pregnant.

Caffeine

Though a lot of times we take this drinks for energy or  to boost our immune system but a research carried out by the American society for reproductive medicine has shown that the is link of caffeine consumption to an increased risk of miscarriages and eventual low birth weight for the babies. It was advised that couples planning to conceive should cut off caffeine or coffee consumption while trying to conceive.

Peas
This is another food that should not consumed when trying to be pregnant, from a study by medical experts in the university of Sheffield, it was found out that peas contain a natural chemical called m-xylohydroquinone which militate against pregnancy, in recent studies, it has been concluded that peas is a possible natural contraceptive because peas are anti-fertility.so consumption of this should be avoided while trying to conceive.
 
Soy foods

From the authors of the book "getting pregnant with ease" it was found out that estrogen found in soy foods prevent pregnancy greatly. It was found out that this natural estrogen in the plant when consumed induces a hormonal imbalance that negatively affects egg production and ovulation. So foods that contain soy like flour, oils, tempeh , texturized  vegetable protein should be taken with doctors advice.

Junks and processed foods

From an online studies it has been found out that excess sugar in processed foods like soda, high sugar fruit drinks and snacks, candy and chips can lead to low blood sugar, which in turn affects levels of reproductive hormones, it is of utmost interest that if one is trying to conceive, sugary foods should be completely eliminated so that the reproductive hormones balances and becomes stable for effective and quick conception.

Spinach

Medical experts have also single out the completely cutting down on the consumption of spinach by couples and partners trying to get pregnant. From their findings, it was observed that spinach reduces and eliminate calcium from the body and from studies, calcium is a nutrient the body greatly needs for healthy reproductive system, so the consumption of spinach which is working against this success, should be replaced with more calcium-filled foods.

Fish with high mercury content

Eating fish that contains omega-3 while trying to conceive is quite advisable says Foxy Brown, a gynecologist with public Medical College, California but from studies, it unfortunate that not all fishes should be eaten while trying to conceive and this is where high-mercury fish comes in. These fishes contains mercury and can build up in the body for years causing havoc to the reproductive system, the fishes  that should be avoided are sharks, swordfish, ahi tuna etc.

So have you been trying - to -conceive and have  been wondering want not to consumed, so as not to jeopardize  the chances of getting pregnant , consider the above listed  things and don't forget to also consult your nutritionist and gynecologist for more information.

An amazing testimony on a Native Iya Hindi root and herbs who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me to contact Native Iya Hindi that help her sister, then i contact the email. hindinative@yahoo.com,He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method after three weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Native Iya Hindi for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he had done. contact him via email:(hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number 19145295224), if you are trying to get a baby.

I made a very big mistake fighting my husband, just because he ask me to give him a child after 9years of our marriage. This created a distance in our relationship, and our marriage was falling out of controlling, but the truth is that i was telling him the right thing, that when the time comes we have our baby. and one day he say to me that he can not do this any more, that is over. This was killing me and i was really hurt because I feel like I am going to lose him for another women. We have been together for 9years, i don’t know what to do any more. but today all thanks to Mallam Abudu of mallamabuduspiritualhome@gmail.com cast a spell and also send a pregnancy seed and oil down to me to drink and i was able to get pregnant. this make my husband happy and come back home. what will i have done if not for Mallam Abudu roots and herbal drugs he gave to me. again thanks to mallamabuduspiritualhome@gmail.com if you are having problem getting pregnant contact Mallam Abudu for help.

I was in a serious relationship for about 3 years. We had a split up in March due to his Ex making threats to his children about me being no good and not to be with me. he broke up with me. I pleaded (Mistake) then started the NC rule. After almost a month he contacted me via friends phone and asked me if I was mad. he told me he missed me and loved me. We got back together and that lasted almost 2 months. Now in early february a similar situation happened again, but with my children. he broke it off again. I did the pleading again with no response from her. I started NC again. Friends of mine tell me that he’ll be back again. Through a friend he told them that he loved me
