Tips For Getting Pregnant - Foods to Help Fertility

If you are looking for tips for getting pregnant then there is also a chance you are starting to question whether you are actually fertile. Very few that question themselves actually end up being infertile but are simply not as fertile as they could be.

One way of increasing your fertility is to eat certain foods which contain antioxidants, calcium and various vitamins which all work as fertility enhancers. Here then is a short list of foods which can help.


Green tea and orange pekoe tea (just tea to most of us) both work really well as fertility enhancers because they contain high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants help us to keep our immune system healthy and research has revealed that females that drink tea on a regular basis have a greater chance of becoming pregnant.

Foods Containing High Levels of Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is a reproductive hormone regulator and can be found in tuna, bananas and roasted chicken breast just to name a few.

Foods Rich In Vitamin C

Vitamin C boosts the immune system which helps in aiding a healthy conception but research has also shown it increases fertility as well, especially in men. Vitamin C is found in fruits with citrus fruits being the best at increasing fertility.

Folic Acid

Folic acid is taken to prevent birth defects but needs to be taken before pregnancy and in the early stages. This is because folic acid helps the development of the babies neural tube which becomes the babies brain and spinal tube. Folic acid can be taken as a supplement or found in green leafy vegetables like spinach and in orange juice.


Water is needed to grow a baby so it is good to get into the habit of consuming lots of water before even becoming pregnant. Try to drink at least 6 and 8 cups of water a day.
