5 Ways to Stay Fertile!

MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Noida
5 Ways to Stay Fertile!

According to a recent study of fertility and diet conducted by the Harvard Medical School, it has been revealed that consuming certain foods and abstaining from some can be easily opted for without any external intervention in order to aid in improving the ovulatory system, even though there are factors that you are unable to control, such as genetics and age. It is important to be aware of the small dietary changes that can potentially make you much more fertile than those who do not go for a healthy diet.

  1. Go for complex carbohydrates: Experts suggest eating more of slow and complex carbohydrates and restricting the consumption of processed ones. Your body is able to digest bad carbohydrates in order to turn them into blood sugar, which is harmful to the body. So you must stay away from cakes and cookies, white breads, white rice, junk food and all such items that appear unsurpassable. It is because the pancreas are compelled to release an additional amount of insulin into the blood for controlling the blood-sugar spike. On the other hand, you can go for good carbohydrates, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, which take time to digest and have a much slower effect on the insulin and blood sugar. It is evident that high levels of insulin can inhibit the process of ovulation.
  2. Choose Iron-Rich Foods:  A diet rich in iron that comes from vegetables and supplements may lower the risk of ovulatory infertility. Ovulatory infertility is only one cause of infertility and affects 25 percent of infertile couples. Vegetarian foods with iron include all types of beans, eggs, lentils, spinach, fortified cereals, long-grain enriched rice and whole grains. Add vitamin C from citrus fruits, bell peppers or berries to your meals to enhance iron absorption.

  3. The "Fertility Diet":  Women should choose the following "fertility diet" -

    • Less animal protein and more vegetable protein
    • Less trans fat and more monounsaturated fat (from foods such as avocados and olive oil)
    • More high-fiber, low-glycemic carbohydrate-rich foods (including whole grains)
    • More vegetarian sources of iron and fewer meat sources
    • Multivitamins
    • High-fat dairy instead of low-fat dairy
  4. Get enough folic acid: Folic acid has been proven to reduce a baby's risk of neural-tube birth defects such as spina bifida, and it is linked to a lower incidence of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and diabetes. A good over-the-counter prenatal vitamin should contain more than the minimum recommendation of folic acid, between 600 and 800 mcg – what you'll need during pregnancy. In addition, you can eat folate-rich foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables like spinach or kale, citrus fruits, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and fortified breads and cereals.
  5. Dairy: It pays to bone up on dairy (milk, yogurt, and cheese) when you’re trying to conceive. Adding dairy to your preconception diet is good not only for bone health but also — potentially — for your reproductive health. So drink that milk, spoon up that yogurt, sip that smoothie, nibble on that cheese.

Laptops can cause Male Infertility

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Laptops can cause Male Infertility
Laptops overheat the genital area and have been linked to male infertility. When the testicles overheat, they tend to produce less sperm. Studies have shown that laptop computers that we hold on our laps for extended periods of time are enough to cause damage to sperm. We recommend placing laptops on a table or desk to avoid these issues plus it's better for posture.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure. Treatment has to continue for life time. Depending on type of diabetes, either oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections are given. In addition there has to be strict dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight and improve internal insulin action. Thanks.

Hello, franxit contains two drugs:-flupenthixol 0.5mg and melitracin 10mg. Flupenthixol is available under the brand name of fluanxol/spenzo (0.5mg) though melitracin is not available per se, but it belongs to the class of tricyclic antidepressants. Other medicines of this class like amitryptilline or imipramine are available.

I am 31 old male and I am a thyroid patient, I used thyronorm 100 mg. Tab. Daily in empty stomach and take breakfast after half an hour. Recently I checked TSH and report is 8.22, where normal range is 4.92. So please suggest me how can I do in this situation and how to control it by medicine and diet chart.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, when on treatment with thyroxine, you should aim at getting tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then only good control is achieved and all symptoms are in check. Tsh 8.22 milli units/l means present dose is not enough. It needs an increase. Initially itself dose should have been a bit more than what you have been advised. Diet does not help in reducing tsh. I am sure you are already avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and items made of that. Plus you will have to continue exercising daily for 1 hour. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are having hypothyroidism and on treatment then tsh level should be between 3 to 4 milli units, then only efforts to reduce weight will benefit.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Sometimes it is possible you are not eating the right foods at the right time. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Your blood sugar levels are not in diabetic range, though fasting readings are mildly high. It should be less than 100. Do not worry, avoid excess sugar and sweats. Do regular exercise, maintain your weight, check your blood sugar regularly.
