By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you maximize your chances of having a healthy pregnancy. Exercise to maintain ideal body weight. Drink caffeine in moderation and do not smoke. While it is ideal to decrease stress, there is little evidence that infertility is caused by stress.
When You Should Start a Fertility Evaluation
- If you have been trying for pregnancy for 1 year
- If you are above age 35 and have been trying for pregnancy for 6 months
- If you have a known cause of possible infertility (for example, if you have irregular menstrual cycles, blocked tubes, endometriosis, or a low sperm count)
