Diening Food Diet And Fitness, Diet Plan Diet Foods Are Fertility Foods a Real Thing?
Alcohol, deli meat, sushi: We're heard a lot about what you're not supposed to eat once you're pregnant. But can certain foods actually boost your likelihood of getting pregnant in the first place?

Are Fertility Foods a Real Thing?

To some extent, yes: Diet and lifestyle can account for as much as 50 percent of infertility, says Jorge Chavarro, M.D., an associate professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and an associate epidemiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital. And in women going through infertility treatment, it accounts for between 10 to 15 percent of the differences in success rates, says Chavarro.
Are Fertility Foods a Real Thing?
The magic is less in a specific pregnancy superfood and more in how your diet looks overall. So, take a deeper look at some of the must-know factors when it comes to pregnancy food.Soy has gotten a lot of attention as it relates to baby bumps. For the most part, this is because soy contains very weak estrogens, which could work as endocrine disruptors—messing with your body's hormones and thus potentially impairing fertility, says Chavarro.
But the scientific research isn't so clear cut. While some studies do show that soy reduces fertility in animals, others find just the opposite. In the latter, women undergoing IVF who were given a high dose of soy supplements (much higher than you would ever eat), saw an increase in birth rates, says Chavarro. Research has also demonstrated that ladies struggling with fertility who simply ate more soy—mostly soy milk and tofu—saw higher birth rates than those who skipped it. 
High doses of supplements could increase the thickness of the endometrium lining of your uterus, which could help the embryo implant, says Chavarro. However, this effect wasn't seen in women who ate their soy, he says—suggesting there could be other factors at play.
The bottom line: Chavarro says that as of now, humans studies tend to show that soy either helps with—or has no effect—on fertility. So it's up to you: If you love your edamame, great; if it's not your thing, no biggie.
