According to U.S. News Health, one in seven American couples struggle with infertility, sometimes for reasons doctors cannot iagnose or explain. Many couples resort to medicines, taken orally or intravenously, to increase the woman's ovulation. Other couples may try Assistive Reproductive Technology (ART), a medical procedure that works by removing the eggs from a woman's body, mixing the eggs with the man's sperm, and placing the resulting embryo back into the woman's body. However, fertility medicines and invasive medical procedures can be very expensive. Before you worry yourself over these costs and complications, consider one low-cost home remedy: a change to your diet.
Harvard University's Nurses' Study reports that restricting the intake of some foods, such as trans fats (fried foods, snack foods, i.e. pizza, pastries, cookies, candies) can have a beneficial effect on promoting healthy ovulation. Women trying to increase fertility should try healthier alternatives such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Studies have also shown that eating small amounts of high-fat dairy products such as whole milk, ice-cream, and cheese also increase fertility.
