Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As age advances, there are hormonal changes which alter the chances of pregnancy. Stress, anxiety, work pressures, change of place, change in climate alter fertility. Smoking, alcohol, caffeine intake, inactive lifestyle add to it further. Improper hygiene, recurrent infection and inaccurate treatment also play a major role.

Maintain personal hygiene and take plenty of fluids, fiber-rich diet, exercise, yoga, lifestyle modifications, dietary modifications, Multivitamin supplements will help you improve your fertility. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and addiction. Have a regular health check with your doctor or health worker.
