Chapter 8 – Fertility Problems

Improving fertility

Couples may benefit from advice on maximising their natural fertility. Important lifestyle advice includes starting a family in your 20’s or early 30’s, having a healthy diet, being in a healthy weight range, and avoidance of tobacco, alcohol and other non-prescribed drugs.

Couples may need education about the optimal times in the cycle for intercourse, however it is important to counsel couples that intercourse must be frequent and not just on the day of ovulation. For more information, see Your Fertility website.
