Considering fertility treatment can be daunting at the best of times, not least in the middle of a global pandemic when a national lockdown has been introduced by the Government.
For those who are trying to conceive, we know this is an incredibly difficult and anxious time. However, it is still possible to start or continue your parenthood journey. How? Below are some helpful tips for those who are looking to start a fertility journey during a national lockdown.
Your fertility can be impacted by your lifestyle, and so there are some small changes that you could make to help make a big difference to your fertility. Some changes to your daily routine that could aid your fertility include:
Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet
Exercising regularly to maintain a healthy weight
Taking a ‘well woman’ supplement
Taking vitamin D
Reducing your alcohol consumption
Managing and reducing your stress
Not taking recreational drugs

The best way to learn about a fertility clinic and fertility treatments is to attend an information evening. These are still happening, just virtually. These information evenings allow you the opportunity to meet clinic staff, tour the facilities and learn about specific treatments. There is always the opportunity to ask questions as well, so there is no need to feel alone. Each of our TFP fertility clinics offers these on a regular basis, so why not sign up to your local clinic's open evenings?
Taking just one of the steps above will help you to start your fertility journey and help you on your journey to becoming a parent.
