Fertility issues are very common around the world, with many couples worldwide and throughout the US experiencing infertility issues (which is defined as the inability to get pregnant after one year of regular unprotected intercourse). This can be a stressful and emotional time for couples that may feel that the family they have dreamed of having is uncertain. At Santa Monica Fertility, we understand how sensitive this issue is and we strive to offer the most advanced fertility services in a comfortable, caring environment of trust. Over the years, we have helped thousands of patients achieve their goal of a healthy pregnancy.
In addition to specific fertility treatments and drugs, there are several things you and your partner can do to increase your chance of getting pregnant. Your doctor will discuss with you the importance of a healthy diet, moderate exercise, and supplementation. Stress can also have a negative effect on fertility, so if you live a high-stress lifestyle that could also be contributing to infertility. Click through the pages on Preconception Health for our general guidelines on exercise, a healthy diet, stress reduction, intercourse frequency, elimination of harmful substances, and recommended nutritional supplementation. These factors can contribute to a healthy pregnancy and decrease the likelihood of miscarriage.
