Will Summer Help or Hinder Your Fertility?

Vitamin D can be an important player in your fertility, which is great news as the summer descends and we spend more and more time outside soaking in the rays.

How the Sun Helps

  • Can help with in vitro fertilization results

  • Helps relieve symptoms of endometriosis

  • Can lessen the occurrence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is the most common disorder of the endocrine system in women.

  • Boosts levels of progesterone and estrogen, helping to regulate the menstrual cycle

  • Helps correct development of sperm cell nuclei

  • Keeps semen quality and sperm counts high enough

  • Increases testosterone, which might impact libido

While spending time in the sun can be glorious, make sure you’re also using protection to keep your skin from harm. Put sunscreen on any exposed skin, and use makeup and even lip balm with SPF in it. Aim for SPF 30 to keep the ultra-violet rays from harming your skin.

And don’t forget that even when you feel like kicking back with a drink on a hot summer evening, keep the alcohol to a minimum. One drink at a time, a couple of times each week would be fine, but too much isn’t healthy for you or any tiny ones you might conceive.
