Or if you’re a lady reading this who wants kids, you need to get you some D.
What up what up. Last article I went over vitamin D’s influence on male fertility, now it’s time for the ladies.
Studies Find Vitamin D Improves Female Fertility
(what this article should have been titled)
Or rather – vitamin D deficiency seriously harms fertility and statistically, if you’re not a regular sun-worshipper or supplementing properly, then you’re probably deficient. If it’s baby-making time you’ll want to keep reading.
Quick Lesson on Vitamin D
If you haven’t read a lot of the other vitamin D posts, I often highlight that vitamin D has been found to be involved in over 2,000 biological processes in the human body. Basically anything going on inside your body (that’s supposed to be happening) is impaired, or completely screwed up (disease), by vitamin D deficiency. This makes vitamin D literally one of the single most important factors in your health, surpassed only by healthy food, water, and sleep. Therefore it’s also one of the most important health factors for your baby.
Pretty much every single organ, tissue, and cell in your body has been found to have vitamin D receptors (VDRs) – including even sperm cells. So if you’re deficient in vitamin D, every aspect of your health you can think of is going to be impaired. This can result in what are called either “short–latency vitamin D deficiency diseases” or “long–latency vitamin D deficiency diseases.”
If you’re deficient you can expect to start experiencing the short-latency symptoms/disorders quickly, which include: fatigue, depression, brain fog, unexplained musculoskeletal pains (osteomalacia), decreased libido, increased colds, dental problems, and more.
The long-latency diseases result from years and years of consistent vitamin D deficiency and they are much, much worse. This includes cancer, autoimmune disorders, alzheimer’s/dementia, and osteoporosis. Unfortunately, unlike the short-latency deficiency diseases, the long-latency ones don’t get noticed and detected so fast and when they do it’s probably too late.
Anyway, I explain all of that to briefly make the point of just how important and essential vitamin D is for your personal health. If you’re a lady wanting to get knocked up or you’re a guy wanting to knock a lady up, you HAVE to get that vitamin D sufficiency accomplished, confirmed, and maintained.
It’s just so important that you really don’t want to go into a pregnancy deficient. Vitamin D will increase fertility, but also significantly protects the health of the mother during pregnancy and is essential for healthy fetal development.
(I know, I know. Not very romantic or sexy. To spice things up you can maybe handcuff and blindfold her before administering a vitamin D test. Make it a naughty doctor role play. And, of course, go to NUDE BEACHES – which is the best way to get vitamin D.)
Vitamin D Improves Female Fertility
Here’s a 2016 study where a total of 306 infertile women seeking fertility treatment had their vitamin D levels tested. These women were split between two different care centers. At the first center ***98%*** of the infertile women were vitamin D deficient. At the other care center, it was 81%.
Here’s one from 2014 involving 335 women receiving in vitro fertilization. Those with higher vitamin D levels had a higher conception rate than those with lower vitamin D levels.
In this study of 99 women receiving in vitro fertilization, those with sufficient vitamin D levels had more than double the rate of conception compared to those with deficient levels. Most heart-breaking is that not only did the deficient women have half the rate of conception, but they had double the rate of stillbirth.
Bringing us to
Vitamin D Reduces Risk of Miscarriage
So in that last study, the deficient women had double the rate of stillbirths.
This study here of 92 pregnant mothers found that those who had a second trimester miscarriage had lower vitamin D levels compared to those who did not.
Vitamin D Protects The Mother’s Health During Pregnancy
During pregnancy you need more vitamin D because much of it is being diverted to the development of your baby. If you don’t increase your vitamin D intake or sun exposure after you get knocked up you can expect to start developing vitamin D deficiency symptoms, which will cause suffering for both you and your child.
This study of 1,152 pregnant women found that those with lower vitamin D levels had higher rates of sleep problems.
This one here is a randomized control trial that found giving pregnant women a mere 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily throughout their third trimester effectively reduced depression in the last month of pregnancy and the two months after birth compared to the placebo group.
This study here found that 117 pregnant women with periodontal (gum) disease had roughly half the vitamin D levels of 118 healthy, matched controls.
This study of 469 pregnant women found that those who were vitamin D deficient had more than double the rate of bacterial vaginosis compared to those with higher vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D Reduces Preeclampsia Risk
This study examined the vitamin D levels of 55 pregnant mothers who had developed preeclampsia and the vitamin D levels of 219 pregnant mothers who did not. The preeclampsia group had lower vitamin D levels compared to the healthy control group.
Mothers With Lower Vitamin D Levels Are More Likely to Require Cesarean Section
This study of 253 pregnant women found that those with vitamin D levels below 15 ng/ml were ***4x*** more likely to require a cesarean birth compared to mothers with higher vitamin D levels.
Proper Vitamin D Levels Are Absolutely Essential For Healthy Fetal Development
These studies are completely sobering. A vitamin D-deficient baby in the womb will go on to become a sicker, weaker, less intelligent, stunted human outside the womb who will forever be at a higher risk of developing autoimmune disorders and other undesirable health conditions. Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy causes permanent damage to a child that can never be undone.
This very long-term study measured the vitamin D levels of 743 pregnant women halfway into their pregnancies (18 weeks) and then followed up and examined their children 5 and 10 years later. The researchers found that children from mothers who had low vitamin D levels during their pregnancy were twice as likely to be struggling with “clinically significant language difficulties” compared to children from mothers who had much better vitamin D levels.
This randomized, placebo-controlled trial of pregnant women in their third trimesters had 59 of the mothers take a meesely 1,000 IU of vitamin D2 daily and 67 mothers take a placebo. The placebo group went on to have double the rate of low-birth weights, five of the control group babies were hypocalcemic (low calcium – vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption), and exhibited slightly impaired skull development compared to the vitamin D group.
This study from Norway on type-1 diabetes found that children born from mothers who took cod liver oil supplements (which contain vitamin D) during their pregnancy were less likely to develop type-1 diabetes.
Here are three different studies (here, here, and here) where thousands of pregnant mothers total had their vitamin D levels tested and then the children were evaluated as toddlers and small children. All three studies found that the children from mothers who had the highest vitamin D levels during pregnancy had the lowest risk of suffering respiratory wheezing or asthma symptoms.
This one of 207 mother-toddler pairs found that babies born from mothers with the lowest vitamin D levels had the highest incidence of dental caries and exhibited worse tooth health.
Sooooooo many studies
I’m done. I can’t read them anymore. Scientists…. God bless them, but boy are they boring writers.
I hope this article has been more enjoyable.
Whether you’re a man or woman and whether you’re currently expecting or planning to conceive, get your vitamin D levels tested before, during, and even after pregnancy. Your baby will need vitamin D through your breast milk. See studies on vitamin D and breastmilk here. That’s a whole other topic…
