Effect of modification of lifestyle on reproductive potential

Bireyler yașam tarzlarını modifiye ve kontrol ederek, fertilite potansiyellerini bir dereceye kadar arttırabilir veya muhafaza edebilirlerYașam tarzlarının modifikasyonu, üreme sağlığı ve fertilite potansiyelini arttıracak veya bozacak çeșitli faktörlere maruziyeti belirleyebilir. Bu makalede, yașam tarzı seçimlerine göre değișebilecek modifiye edilebilir bazı faktörleri ve onların üreme sağlığına olan etkilerini güncel tıbbi literatür eșliğinde sunuyoruz.

Yașam tarzı değișikliğinin üreme potansiyeline etkisi

Individuals have roles in preserving or increasing their fertility potential to a degree by controlling and modifying their life styles. Life styles modification may determine exposure to various factors that may improve or disprove reproductive health and fertility potential. Herein, we try to present some modifiable factors varies according to the life style preferences and their effects on reproductive health in the light of current medical literature.
