A healthy body works better. This also applies to fertility and pregnancy. That is why it is important when wanting to have a child to pay attention to leading a good lifestyle: a balanced diet, adequate sleep and exercise. Both being underweight and overweight can disturb one's hormonal balance, causing pregnancy not to occur. It has been shown that in such cases, a change of diet immediately increases one's chances of becoming pregnant many times over. This also helps support IVF or insemination treatments.

Even when one is not wanting to have children, nicotine and alcohol are not health-promoting substances. But for those who want to get pregnant, it is best to completely abstain from nicotine and to keep alcohol consumption within limits. Passive smoking is just as harmful. Of course, both nicotine and alcohol are a no-go during pregnancy in any case. And once the baby has arrived, they should also be avoided.
