Right now, we are living on the fast track. Unfortunately, people tend to become manipulated and controlled like robots. You should rethink your lifestyle when it is often focused about amassing wealth through mad rushes for various financial goals. In reality, our body and mind work the best when it has an adequate level of comfort. It means we need to fulfil all the basic, such as healthy food, quality sleep and proper recreation. When it happens for years, we will experience various psychological and physiological upheavals. There are various physical issues that we may experience and one of them is related to reproduction and fertility. Many young couples need to postpone having their first child, because both are working and they need to cope with financial obligations, such as paying for student debts, mortgage, car loans and others.
Later, when they consider that it is time for them to have a child, they find out that they have declining fertility. As an example, many women need to work because the financial requirements can only be satisfied when both spouses are working. In modern society, we are susceptible to changes in lifestyle, involving alcohol consumption, drugs and smoking. These lifestyle changes could have an effect on our fertility. As an example, alcoholic mothers shouldn’t expect to have healthy infants. Young professionals may also want to delay marriage, which could cause them more vulnerable to unhealthy sexual activities. Various sexually transmitted diseases could permanently impair the fertility, making them harder to have child, once they get married.
You should understand about the potential bad effects of postponing pregnancy. Women are most fertile when they are between 22 and 30. After that, their fertility level will start to decline and will decline sharply once they pass forty. Some women are able to deliver babies in their late forties, but this is far from ideal. As women grow older, the incidence of abnormal fetus development and spontaneous abortions will become more likely. They may also already have health problems that can interfere with the pregnancy, such as diabetes, hypertension and eclampsia. Normal labor will also become more difficult and it is often necessary to perform caesarean surgery. Although men are often considered that they are less affected to age-related fertility decline, in reality, many pregnancies fail to happen due to fertility problems among men.
Men often have job-related stress and this is something that can significantly affect their physical condition. Lack of exercises, regular fast food consumption and erratic eating schedule could make men become more resistant to insulin. As a result, their bodies will produce more insulin, resulting in obesity and diabetes. This is only a single thing among many that can affect the fertility of men. The normal sperm count is about 120 million/ml. However, it will start to decline when men reach their 30’s. Once the sperm count reaches less than 60 million/ml, pregnancy will become less likely to happen. Tight jeans and high temperature around scrotum due to frequent uses of laptop and regular motorbike riding could also reduce fertility among men.
