Fertility and Nutrition
Introduction to Nutrition Counseling for Infertility
Because medical research demonstrates a significant relationship between fertility and nutrition, the fertility doctors at Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine (ACRM) encourage patients to take advantage of opportunities for nutritional counseling and to optimize their nutrition to increase fertility. Focusing on fertility foods and a healthy fertility diet supports the body's capability to conceive and to maintain a successful pregnancy. For women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), weight loss and a healthy fertility diet can help reduce circulating insulin and restore reproductive function. Similarly, weight gain for underweight women can help restore fertility through nutritional support. Empowering patients to use nutrition to increase fertility is a key educational goal of nutritional counseling at Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine.
