Whether it’s about preparing your body to conceive or managing options for pregnancy, the effort needs to be shared. These types of issues shouldn’t be addressed by women alone. Today, we are joined by Elizabeth King, the fertility health coach. In this episode, Elizabeth shares the experiences she was exposed to at an early age that helped her understand the struggles of many women with infertility. Because fertility management isn’t an issue that only women should worry about, Elizabeth speaks on the importance of building your team of fertility support and finding yourself the type of therapy that understands you.

The Body, Mind, and More That Affects Conception
Conceiving isn’t something for everyone that comes naturally. It’s not as simple as sex makes it sound. When you plan to conceive, there are points to consider that make meeting the goal of conception a success. In the aspect of your egg’s natural cycle, 120 – 150 days is the observed period for your eggs to regenerate. It doesn’t actually make new eggs. It just regenerates batches. This information is particularly important if you want to understand your window. But aside from the science behind your ovulation — your partner, diet, mental health, and the support you get, also have a hand in your process of conceiving as a woman and as a couple.
When it comes to diet for Elizabeth, only do what you need to do. Sometimes, doing too much can actually just do you more harm than good. Stress is the number one element that isn’t going to help you. Elizabeth reiterates that conceiving should be treated as if you’re already nearing pregnancy. The body needs to be primed together with the right mentality. With that goal is where your partner comes in. Counting on them to help you with different concerns will help everybody get on board with the plan. And they too should keep healthy. Know this: no matter how healthy your egg is, if your partner’s sperm is not, it’s still going to be a bad fit. This is why it’s not only a female issue. The more both partners are on the same level, the higher the success of conception becomes.
