Starting a family of your own is indeed a challenge. I remember when I just got married, I have doubts if I will be able to conceive a child. I'm having issues with my health since I was in the elementary grades. I was anemic and often experience nose bleeding especially when I'm directly exposed to the sun. I was not able to join any extra curricular activities in school especially the ones which require strenuous physical activity. I also have problem with my monthly period. Sometimes my Mom would bring me to the hospital for injection as I can no longer bear the pain. I realize that health is really important especially for women if you want to have a healthy family, as well.
When you are trying to conceive, it is very important that your body is healthy and ready. There are ways to prepare your body in trying to conceive. If you and your partner are into processed foods and junk foods, try to slowly change your food choice to healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, they are packed with so many vitamins and minerals to prepare your body in trying to conceive. Stay fit by having regular exercise and getting enough sleep. Do not let you and your partner be too stressed out. Have fun and enjoy while trying to conceive. According to www.pregnancytips.org, a woman can also start taking prenatal vitamins when trying to conceive. This will prepare her body with the vitamins that the baby needs like Folic Acid and calcium. As for the men, make sure to keep your sperms cool by avoiding hot tubs, saunas and laptops staying on your lap for a very long time - these are known to be the number 1 sperm killers. In trying to conceive, staying healthy is the number one thing that you have to do. If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for more than 6 months to no avail, set an appointment with your doctor.
Now a days there are more ways to ensure that you can conceive a child without worrying about your health. All we have to do is "be aware". We can surf online, read books and ask friends who just had their babies and learn from their experiences. It is better to be safe than sorry.
