When it comes to getting pregnant, it seems that most everyone has some advice on the matter. However, identifying the fact from the fiction may prove to be a difficult task, depending on the source. For example, did you know:
1. Diet and exercise do not necessarily preserve fertility. A woman’s ability to produce eggs declines with age, regardless of her health. Female fertility peaks during the ages of 20 to 24 and decreases a little from 30 to 32. After that, her fertility decreases progressively until 40 and rapidly after the age 40.
2. Women are very fertile in the few days before they ovulate. Most people know that a woman’s fertility is at its highest the day of ovulation. However, the four or five days leading up to ovulation are also crucial baby-making periods as well.
3. Tight shorts reduce sperm production. A lot of people know about this fertility tidbit, however probably far fewer know about its validity. With that said, tight shorts do affect the development of sperm. In fact, clothing that increases body temperature by one degree may reduce the amount of sperm produced.
