Food for thought
Believe it or not, peas have anti-fertility effects for both men and women. Also watch out for soy products. They contain a natural source of oestrogen that can be beneficial, but may cause hormonal imbalances, leading to interference with ovulation and egg production. Make sure your partner also eats properly. Poor appetite coupled with stress can often have adverse effects on sexual urges.
