Are you planning to get pregnant this summer? Or have you have been trying to conceive for a while? Then getting ’Fertility Fit’ is a great way to prepare you for a healthy pregnancy. The mother’s health has a direct impact on the growing health of her baby – so the earlier you start improving your health, the better your chances to conceive and to have a healthy pregnancy and baby too!

Summertime is an ideal opportunity to break old habits and start to improve your health and wellbeing - which will boost your fertility and prepare your body for IVF.

Studies have found ‘that women undergoing fertility treatments who had been exposed to more sunlight, higher temperatures and less rain in the month before their IVF, had a third higher successful pregnancy rates!’

Summertime can improve successful fertility treatment

A team of researchers lead by Dr Simon Wood, at the Countess of Chester Hospital, found that those having had IVF cycles during the summer months with the longer days, needed lower doses of drugs to stimulate ovulation. Dr Wood analysed the outcomes of fertility treatment, carried out on 266 women who had two cycles, one during April to September and the other performed between October and March. The pregnancy rate during the summer was 15.7 percent compared to 7.5 percent in the winter. The study concluded that the extended daylight hours benefited the outcomes of IVF cycles. However if age is a deciding factor for you, then it is better to start fertility treatment sooner, rather than wait for the longer daylight hours.
