Remember to boost your chances of conceiving by following some simple rules such as taking folic acid, eating well and having lots of baby making sex.
When it comes to eating well for men take into consideration that a low sperm count has been linked to certain vitamin deficiencies such as low Zinc levels which can be helped by eating Oysters. Dark chocolate in moderation can help with increasing sperm volume and also providing antioxidants while bananas have been known to increase male libido.
For women Iron levels as well as vitamins B and C are important to keep topped up and this can be done by consuming plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as lots of whole grains, seeds, dairy, fish and lean meat. However, diet is not just about what you do it eat, it is also about what you stay clear of and in this case processed food, alcohol, caffeine and spicy food should be removed from your diet to give you the best chance.
