Stress has important role in conception. Stress  changes the hormonal balance. It can  leads to menstrual problems like infrequent menstruation or no menstruation. Stress leads to difficulty in conception in patients of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). So avoid stress as far as possible. Do yoga and some form of meditation, listen to peaceful music and just relax.

Lack of exercise

The role of exercise in conception is seminal. Exercise 5-6 times a week. It will not stimulate the production of the feel good endorphins and helps you to maintain  ideal BMI. Being overweight or underweight is bad for conception. Obesity leads to hormonal problems as well as lifestyle diseases like diabetes, thyroid disease, PCOS and hypertension.  Menstrual problems occur in overweight and underweight women.

Healthy diet

Add lots of green vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, good fibre and proteins in your diet . Legumes and fish contain a lot of polyunsaturated fats and antioxidants as opposed to red meat, especially processed meat. A high fat diet is also known to lower sperm quality. A well-balanced diet is important. Avoid junk and  processed food. Caffeine is also not good for pregnancy. Over 2 cups of coffee a day effects pregnancy.
