25 LITTLE HACKS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
5 Things Every Woman Needs To Know About Her Fertility
Your fertility is one of those things you take for granted until you actually want to put it to use. That’s usually when you realize you actually have no idea what goes into making a baby beyond the basics.
Of course, your fertility is about more than having an egg that’s ready and psyched to join up with your partner’s sperm. Actions that you take now can have an impact on your future ability to have kids, so it makes sense that you’d want to do what you can to ensure that your eggs are healthy, and that they’ll be ready to do their thing when the timing is right.
That said, don’t freak out and worry that you killed off all your good eggs during your happy hour streak of 2019. It’s a little more complicated that that, and odds are if you’re taking care of yourself, your eggs are doing great, too.
But even if you’re not planning to try to have a baby this second, you probably have a few fertility questions that are percolating but you’re too afraid to ask. That’s why we asked Suzanne Fenske, M.D., assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai,to weigh in on some of the biggest fertility questions women have. Here’s what you need to know.
Nope—IUDs will not negatively impact your fertility in any way, Fenske says. You still ovulate with an IUD but the little device makes your uterus inhospitable for a fertilized egg while it’s in. When it’s out, you’re back to normal.

There are tons of myths out there about how eating spicy food, pineapple, garlic, and pretty much everything else will make you go into labor. Unfortunately, those claims are bogus. “None of those foods have been proven to induce labor,” Fenske says.
