Many things can affect a woman's ability to have a baby. Some things are essential, while other things are not as important. Let's talk about five exciting facts we found out about how a woman's body can make it easier or harder for her to have a baby.
Age. Your ability to have a baby depends a lot on your age. From when you start releasing eggs as a young person to when you stop after menopause, your chances of having a baby change. People are all unique, but usually, girls are best at having babies between 20 and 25 years old. But even in your 40s, becoming a mom is still possible.
A girl is born with around 1 to 2 million eggs. Around 300 to 400 of these are released during ovulation throughout her life.
An AMH Test checks the Anti-Mullerian Hormone in your blood. This hormone shows how many eggs you still have in your ovaries.
False. Coffee might make you feel awake and ready to work, but some studies say caffeine could squeeze muscles and affect how eggs move from the ovaries to the womb.
But don't stress too much about it – other studies say there's no connection between caffeine and how easy it is to have a baby.
False. Yeast infections and other infections in the vagina don't stop you from having babies.
But there's something called Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) that can affect fertility. Two of them, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, can make it hard to have a baby, especially if you don't get treated. Chlamydia might not show any signs, so it's wise to get tested for STIs often.
True. A study discovered that women who are a healthy weight and do intense exercise for more than 5 hours a week might have a more challenging time getting pregnant.
But don't think you should stop exercising because of this. Exercise is perfect for your body and mind. Remember that exercising hard almost every day is worth considering when thinking about having a baby.
