Understanding Fertility Supplements with Footsteps To Fertility Centre

Nutrition has a big impact on human fertility, for both males and females. In today’s day and age, we probably don’t have to do too much convincing that vitamins are one of many avenues available to improve your health.  When trying to get pregnant, there are some additional considerations to take in as your nutritional requirements are not the same as when you are pregnant or otherwise. 


When dealing with infertility, there are often many issues at play: sperm health, egg quality, ovulation, ovarian lining. Taking certain high-quality preconception vitamins are one way that women can improve their bodies and eggs when trying to conceive.

While it is important to know that supplements can be a vital source of proper nutrition when trying to get pregnant, the food you eat will always be the primary source of nutrition.

Fertility Supplements for men and women

For men, it is often assumed that they don’t have much of a role in fertility treatment.  This is not the case.  Even when a man’s semen analysis comes back as “normal,” there is significant evidence that a man’s sperm can cause failed fertilization or arrested the development of an early stage embryo.  Certain antioxidants and other nutrients help by improving sperm structure and function.

There is a great deal of scientific knowledge about the use of nutritional supplements and their beneficial effects on both male and female fertility. As you will see, these supplements can be very effective in re-balancing your hormones, as well as improving you and your partner’s overall health, which are so vital for successful conception.

Prenatal vitamins are recommended to all women trying to conceive. The most important component of the supplement is folic acid (folate) which is present in all prenatal vitamins.

Certain vitamins and minerals can increase your chances of getting and staying pregnant. In order to maximize your chances of conceiving it is very important that you and your partner are in optimum health.

Highest Quality Care For You

Empowering you to pursue a family

By eliminating nutritional deficiencies and improving sperm production and mobility you can dramatically increase your chances of getting pregnant. In order to do this it is essential that you are obtaining the right nutrients and in the right quantities to enhance your success.

Supplements are necessary because even the best diet in the world may not contain all the nutrients you need to give you the best chance of conceiving.

Some of the multi-vitamins may contain very high doses of vitamin A, which may be harmful to the developing fetus. Switching to a prenatal vitamin prior to conception is ideal. Prenatal vitamins should be started 2-3 months prior to a planned pregnancy for best outcomes.

The best way to supplement vitamins and minerals in the body is through a well balanced diet and by consuming plenty of green vegetables and fresh fruits.

In men with poor sperm parameters, supplementation with vitamins and antioxidants has been recommended.

In some cases, sperm quantity and quality are improved significantly, but in others benefit may be minimal, especially in men with severe sperm abnormalities.
