One of the biggest concerns among blue fortera couples of childbearing age, with a desire to be parents, is the possible inability to complete this project. The World Health Organization
(WHO) defines infertility as “a reproductive tract disease defined by the inability to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of unprotected intercourse.” In today’s post we tell you how eating habits influence this diagnosis and what products should be in your diet to increase the chances of being parents.
In Spain, the problem affects fertility rate located between 15% – 17% of the population, which means that are about 800,000 couples of having difficultyto conceive.
