Your lifestyle affects your chances of pregnancy!

On the last day of the 3rd International IVI Congress, which was held with the participation of 1000 physicians between 14-16 May, the relationship between the increasing infertility problem and the environment and living conditions was examined.

Assessing the effects of environmental factors and lifestyle on conception, Dr. IVI Istanbul Director. Erdal Budak said, kaç We cannot change the facts about how old the patients are or the ovarian reserve. However, we know that factors such as stress, excess weight, inactivity, smoking and alcohol consumption in daily life affect the success of reproductive therapies. By informing patients on these issues, we can make changes in their lives that will affect their treatment positively. Konu

Budak said that more than 3 million babies have been born as a result of assisted reproductive treatments so far.

Concerns about the negative impact of environmental conditions on human reproductive health are increasing.

A still life style, caffeine and alcohol consumption, obesity, as well as cosmetics, pesticides, food packaging, and even used in toys and bottles, some chemicals have been reported to reduce the chance of pregnancy.

Dr. McMaster University Department of Obstetrics in Canada. Edward V. Younglai warned of the use of BPA, phthalate ethers, and DDT, which he described as “endocrine disrupting compounds:: Bisphenol, platic water bottles, also known as BPA, is used in the production of baby bottles, mobile phones, toys and even some medical equipment. Phthalate ethers are found in cosmetics, cleaning agents, paints and construction materials. DDT is the pest killer we know.

Still life - an element of danger

La The still lifestyle leads to weight gain and therefore has negative consequences for reproductive health, Young Younglai says.
Research has shown that obese women have a three-fold higher risk of infertility and a failure rate to attempt pregnancy through natural or assisted reproductive techniques.

Overweight reduces the chances of a healthy development of the baby and increases the likelihood of complications during pregnancy, and does not respond well to ovulation-stimulating therapies in assisted reproductive therapies of those who are overweight.
Moreover, the egg and embryo quality of those who are high in weight is generally low and the embryo is attached to the uterus is reduced, affecting fertility negatively.

Dr. IVI from Valencia. Evaluating the effects of obesity and very low body weight, José Bellver said, kil The chances of overweight women who want to have children are reduced to a third, whereas they can achieve normal results with a 5% weight loss. Jos

5% Weight loss increases pregnancy chances

Overexposure and pregnancy rates increase with only 5% or more weight loss because energy restriction is more beneficial than changes in body shape or total weight, and the reduction of fat in the internal organs associated with endocrine and metabolic disorders in obese women is reduced by only 5% or more.

They are very weak and at risk

As with excess weight, being under normal weight can impair the woman's ability to have children. A 10-15% reduction in normal body weight usually leads to menstrual cessation. Normal ovulation is impaired, especially in women with bulimia or anorexia (seen in 5% of women of childbearing age) and female athletes.

Real in cigarette packs

IVI Lisbon Director Dr Sérgio R. Soares clarified the words in cigarette packets by giving examples of studies on the relationship between smoking and reproductive function. In summary;


• The clearest evidence of the relationship between smoking and egg reserves in the body is that smokers may have menopause at an earlier age.
• In vitro fertilization in women with smoking habits results in lower fertilization rates due to the detrimental effects of smoking on follicle and egg development.
• The habit of smoking adversely affects the embryo's ability to hold onto the uterus and the normal function of the tubes.
In men:
Smoking reduces sperm production, causes oxidative stress and DNA damage
• Reduces the ability of smoker's sperm to conceive and the ability of the embryo to attach to the uterus
Moreover, the data obtained in recent years show that the reproductive capacity of men and women exposed to cigarette smoking while in the womb is negatively affected.

Caffeine and alcohol

At the 3rd IVI Congress, the effects of alcohol and caffeine consumption on reproductive treatments were discussed at length. In a study, it was suggested that alcohol consumption in women decreased the number of eggs collected and chances of conception and that alcohol consumption of both sexes increased the risk of miscarriage.
Caffeine consumption may have negative effects on the pregnancy process and may lead to live birth rates and lead to premature birth, but further research is needed to reach a definitive opinion on this issue.

From the University of California San Diego School of Medicine. Hillary Klonoff-Cohen, while evaluating the effects of alcohol, caffeine and psychological stress, said that the fear of retiring from work prevents women from becoming pregnant and causes miscarriages.

Hillary Klonoff-Cohen, who believes that there is data on almost every subject in the field of infertility, but that there is insufficient information about the concerns of women receiving reproductive therapy, has developed a research to collect the necessary data. As a result of the tests applied to 151 women they treated, it was found that embryo transfer, fertilization and conception of women who were worried about kalma retiring from work geri were negatively affected. Another point revealed by the same research is that “economic concerns olumsuz have negative effects on live birth rates.
