There is great importance of getting enough iron whilst you are pregnant , but did you know that failing to get enough iron before conception can keep you from?getting pregnant? Adequate iron is needed for optimum fertility.
Studies have shown that women who do not get sufficient amounts of iron may suffer anovulation (lack of ovulation) and can decrease the health of your eggs, which in turn can inhibit pregnancy at a rate 60% higher than those with sufficient iron stores in their blood.
Iron in the blood delivers oxygen to our organs and tissue to keep them healthy and alive.
If the blood does not have insufficient iron levels, it affects the delivery of oxygen to all of the body?s tissue and organs including the ovaries and uterus, reducing their health. This in turn can cause the eggs stored in the ovaries to weaken over time and become unviable. Worse yet, if conception does occur, anaemia makes it impossible for the growing foetus cells to divide and grow properly. This may result in a miscarriage in some cases.
Iron deficiency is the number one deficiency for women in the world, and few women are aware of iron’s connection with infertility and pregnancy complications.
