6 lifestyles that affect your ability to have children

Infertility affects millions of people of reproductive age (ages 25 to 34) worldwide.

No weight control

Being obese or having a high body mass index (BMI) can affect the hormonal balance needed for fertility.

Evidence also shows that the rate of miscarriage and complications during pregnancy increases in women with a higher BMI.

Meanwhile, in men, sperm problems such as no or little sperm, abnormal shape and movement were also found to increase in obese men.

Obesity is a cause of infertility in both sexes.

Unscientific lifestyle

People who often have to stay up at night to work, work overtime… have irregular sleep times, sleep disorders or suffer from psychological stress and anxiety that affects the biological clock rhythm, causing the body to suffer from endocrine disorders.

The habit of sitting for long hours at work, wearing tight underwear, being exposed to too high temperatures… affects sperm, which is also a factor leading to reduced reproductive quality in men.

Diet is not nutritious enough

The quality of sperm and eggs is directly affected by eating habits.

Women’s poor diet can also lead to ovulatory dysfunction and delayed menstruation, which can lead to infertility.

Lack of reproductive knowledge

Lack of education about sexual and reproductive health in adolescents can lead to the development of sexually transmitted diseases that cause infertility related to incurable fallopian tube problems.

In addition, lack of knowledge about ovulation, not having sex at fertile times due to constantly changing work shifts or couples living apart for long periods of time also reduce the chance of conception.

Exposure to toxic substances

This is also the cause of polycystic ovary syndrome in many women, while also reducing sperm quantity and quality.

Smoking and drinking alcohol

Smoking and drinking habits as well as exposure to electromagnetic radiation from electronic devices can significantly reduce sperm count and damage sperm DNA.

Women who smoke cause a faster decline in ovarian reserve, a condition in which the number of follicles decreases and can lead to early menopause.

Some of the above lifestyle-related causes of infertility can be controlled.
