There are SO many foods/medicines that are “said” to lower/impair fertility. It would be near impossible to avoid them all. You would be beyond a vegetarian diet. :eek: I wouldn’t worry about it, unless the food/medicine has been medically proven to hurt a future baby. Then by all means avoid it, if possible.
Sometimes, with some medical conditions it is not possible.
Here’s two examples. 1.) I have asthma, my steroids lower fertility, but do not pose a major threat to baby should I get pregnant. My asthma medicines are unfortunately “C” category medicines. Those could potentially harm (cause a birth defect) but are not fatal to a future baby. I am unable to avoid these medicines, if I do not take them I will loose oxygen and die…thus…so would baby. They are completely unavoidable and necessary. 2.) I also drink lots of coffee and tea. Caffeine is “said” to reduce fertility. However, both coffee and tea can greatly reduce asthmatic symptoms, as well as reduce the need for pain/headache medicines. In fact, the same caffeine found in tea is also found in many asthma medicines, the caffeine in coffee is found in headache medicines. They both help me not have to take as much medicine. Which can only be a good thing.
God placed many medicinal qualities in foods we eat. Like the coffee/tea. It naturally helps minor asthmatic symptoms, and helps relieve a stubborn headache. Why not use its benefits? Also, fish, as you mentioned contains many oils essential for good brain development/functioning. Why not eat them for this reason?
If you eat foods for the natural and healthy benefits God made them for…I don’t see why not.
