the key TO YOUR FERTILITY

bellaMUMMA contributor, Dr Natalie Kringoudis, explains the key to your fertility and how to 'fertilise yourself'.
THE YOUTH OF YOUR 20′s IS THE KEY TO THE FETILITY OF YOUR 30′s. 
Does it seem you spent most of your twenties trying your hardest not to fall pregnant, only to discover that now you’re thirty-something and the pipes aren’t as squeaky clean as you expected? 

Many women are now finding themselves trying to rewind the clock. It sounds so silly, we can get so caught up in getting ahead for the future, how do we get from a to b, is there enough money saved? If I just do ‘x’ first then I can do ‘zy’? And how’s about our work choices? They are detrimental when it comes to health. We disregard the actual nuts and bolts of future – it’s modern living.

Living well takes a huge amount of effort, it isn’t simple – but it simplifies life once we get the hang of it. It’s a ‘practice makes perfect’ {well almost} kind of thing. Because we know that no one is perfect, but our lives get closer to a sort of wonderful perfection as we work on what works for us. 

As infertility and IVF rates climb, women are being forced to re-think the way we look at our health, specifically our fertility. It is important to remember that health and fertility are not separate entities - wellness and fertility are intrinsically linked. Women with Endometriosis, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome and hormonal imbalances are very aware that their fertility is potentially being compromised by these conditions, and therefore they must use this diagnosis to their benefit. With the knowledge that comes with a diagnosis, women are then able to make treatment decisions that can make a real difference to their fertility future. 

You might be in your twenties, and having a baby is the last thing on your mind. You might be in your thirties but have fertility challenges caused by illness so you think that being on the pill is the answer to your fertility problems {you can read why it isn’t HERE and HERE}. You might even be past the pregnancy phase of your life but know somebody who is young that needs support and fertility education. 

The truth is as women we should never stop learning about our health, especially when it comes to reproductive function – it spans from before our first menstruation way into the years after our last. 


So how do we keep learning and keep healthy? Firstly we realise that healthy fertility does not have to mean you want a baby and you want it now – it means you want to be at your optimum health. The best start is being mindful that you are not superhuman and your body requires a constant level of care. Exploring your options and getting to the crux of health issues is vital to build a solid foundation, to serve yourself well for all of the years you and your body have ahead. We can’t always fall back on medication – they often fail to offer a solution to a broken body. Optimum health always comes back to simple wholesome lifestyle practices.

Our twenty-something’s youth is the key to our thirties-something’s fertility.
