Whether you're thinking about getting pregnant or have already been trying, it's never too early or too late to evaluate your lifestyle choices. Starting healthy habits or getting rid of bad ones can improve your overall health. And some lifestyle changes may promote fertility in both you and your partner. For example, smoking cessation, reducing alcohol consumption, eliminating street drugs, practicing safe sex, avoiding overheating (male), limiting caffeine intake, and exercising regularly.
