Health Tip: Raise Your Chances of Having a Baby

(HealthDay News) -- Infertility affects about 1 in 10 couples that are trying to have a baby, the U.S. National Institutes of Health says.

Advancing age is a prime cause of infertility, but there are other factors that are more under a person's control, the agency says, including:

  • Alcohol consumption.
  • Smoking.
  • Environmental toxins, including pesticides and lead.
  • Certain medicines.
  • Radiation treatment and chemotherapy.
  • Stress.
  • Poor diet.
  • Being overweight.
  • Sexually transmitted infections.
