Natural Remedies For Fertility
Body Mass Index (BMI)
The first thing that you can do, and this is usually one of the most overlooked aspects of women gaining control over their fertility, is maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI).
Maintaining a healthy body mass index of 20 to 25 provides you with just enough weight to maintain your fertility. If you have a BMI under 20, it is suggested you gain just enough weight to get your BMI into the fertile zone. If you have a BMI over 25, it is suggested you lose just enough weight to get back into the fertile zone. You can have your BMI calculated by your physician, or you can easily enter your weight and height into an online BMI calculator.
