Recommended Foods to Eat
  • Select free-range lean poultry and wild fish. Omega-3's found in fish oil support uterine function and promote fertility.

  • Include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in your diet.

  • Avoid dehydration by drinking water at regular intervals. Drinking water helps your body get rid of toxic substances.

  • For men, eat foods high in zinc such as pumpkin seeds. Zinc is needed for proper reproductive function in men.

Foods to Avoid Eating
  • Avoid consuming alcohol. Alcohol harms sperm production and can reduce fertility in females.

  • When possible, choose organic animal meats. This will ensure that the meat has not been treated with hormones.

  • Avoid getting too much caffeine. Reduce the amount of caffeinated drinks including coffee, tea and soft drinks. Too much caffeine is suspected to cause miscarriage. Drink no more than 1 cup of coffee daily.

  • Avoid eating fast food, processed or canned foods. Many of these foods include chemicals that can affect the hormone levels.
