Seafood-lovers have more sex and take less time to get pregnant

Researchers have found that couples who eat at least two servings of seafood each week are more sexually active and succeed in getting pregnant faster Diet rich in seafood boosts libido and fertility, new study finds

Audrey J. Gaskins, Sc.D., from Harvard University in Boston, and colleagues examined the relationship of male and female seafood intake with TTP among 501 couples planning pregnancy who participated in the Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment Study (2005 to 2009).

The study found couples who eat more than two servings of seafood weekly while trying to conceive have a significantly higher frequency of intercourse and get pregnant in the fastest time compared to other couples.

Although seafood is an important source of nutrients for women who may become pregnant, concerns about mercury have led some women to stop eating fish while trying to conceive.

A new study, which the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism recently published, claims that having diet that is rich in seafood could increase the chances of becoming pregnant.

For the study, 500 MI and Texas couples from the Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment (LIFE) Study were followed for one year. It seems that 92% of couples who consumed seafood over twice a week conceived after only 12 months.

The wicket has encouraged spinners to give the ball a good rip with the ball stopping on the surface in Kolkata this season. Rashid and Khaleel are apparently the Tom and Jerry of Sunrisers Hyderabad , as revealed by Yusuf himself.

"It is also possible that couples who consume higher amounts of seafood together share more meals and thus more time together (including nights)", said Gaskins, "which may be a behavioral explanation for the association we observed with sexual activity". A new study funded by the National Institutes of Health finds that eating more seafood may improve a couple's chances of getting pregnant.

A 2017 press release from Food and Drug Administration has already assured the public that 90 percent of the fishes consumed in the country is low in mercury and is safe to eat. Women's consumption of seafood, however, is hindered by their fears of mercury contamination.

The findings may be partly explained by the effects on semen quality, ovulation and embryo development, scientists believe.

Dr Gaskins notes, however, that the agencies also say 90 percent of the fish eaten in the USA is low in mercury and therefore same to consume.

'There is a popular culture belief that seafood might be an aphrodisiac, but there is really no evidence to suggest that, ' she said.
