In recent years, with the increase of work and life pressure, changes in lifestyle and dietary habits, the incidence of infertility in China has been increasing year by year. According to statistics from the World Health Organization, 20 years ago, the infertility rate among the reproductive age population in China was only 3%. However, today, the infertility rate has risen to 12.5-15%.
Every year, nearly a hundred infertile patients come for treatment. Among them, female infertility is the majority. Infertility is mainly divided into male infertility and female infertility. At present, the reason why women have a higher probability of infertility than men is not only due to the different physiological structures of both parties, but also due to differences in life. Among them, poor dietary habits are the primary culprit leading to female infertility.
So, what dietary misconceptions can lead to female infertility, and how can infertility be detected and treated in a timely manner? Experts remind that nothing should be excessive. Dieting due to the desire to lose weight, blindly supplementing due to the desire to regulate the body, and disrupting dietary patterns due to a fast work pace can all affect women's physical health, leading to irregular ovulation and infertility. Generally speaking, there are six types of unhealthy dietary habits that affect female fertility:
First type: long-term vegetarian diet
Many women choose a vegan diet in order to pursue a slim figure, which can easily lead to malnutrition and affect women's ovulation patterns.
Second option: skip breakfast
Sleeping in is a hobby for many people, and some people simply eat breakfast and lunch together after getting too much sleep. This approach not only easily leads to gallstones and high blood sugar, but also has a certain impact on pregnancy.
Third type: high fat, high protein diet
On the contrary, some expectant parents, in order to improve their reproductive quality, consume excessive amounts of high fat and protein foods, including fried, fried, and smoked foods, which can easily lead to a sharp increase in weight. Obesity can affect endocrine function, resulting in abnormal sperm in males, menstrual disorders in females, and poor ovulation.
Fourth type: Eating too much cooked food
Many cooked foods have a delicious and spicy taste, which is mainly due to the addition of many additives during the production process, such as curing agents, anti caking agents, coloring agents, and other aluminum containing additives. For women in childbearing period, excessive aluminum will lead to dysplasia of the fetus.
Fifth type: Love to eat cold food
Ice cream, ice cream, and chilled beverages are the favorites of many young people, but frequent consumption of these foods can easily cause stomach colds, cause pelvic congestion, and ultimately affect the menstrual cycle.
Sixth type: excessive drinking and smoking
Alcohol can kill male sperm and cause pregnancy induced hypertension in pregnant women, leading to congenital developmental disorders in children. Smoking contains lead and aluminum elements. Long term smoking can disrupt female hormone secretion, disrupt the menstrual cycle, and affect normal ovulation
