What factors can affect the chance of having a baby?
Medical issues such as diabetes, asthma and being overweight can affect your pregnancy.
Diet and Exercise
Being overweight – For women if your body mass index (BMI) is between 20 and 25 you have a healthy weight. Women whose BMI is more than 30 or under 19 may find their fertility levels suffer. If a men’s BMI is more than 30, his fertility may be lower than normal.
It is important to be active for general feeling of wellness. Being active and fitter helps with stamina and ability to cope with the ups and downs of everyday life.
Alcohol and smoking
Excessive alcohol drinking may affect the quality of a man’s sperm and smoking may reduce fertility in women.
Age can be a factor

For men, sperm is strongest in their mid-twenties and starts to decrease after the age of 40.
