It is important to note that, some women get pregnant without any problem while others desperately struggle trying to get pregnant for a very long time. Fortunately, there is still hope for all women who have difficulties in getting pregnant. It’s important that couple’s should encourage each other and provide physical and emotional support during this period.
Trying to Get Pregnant Tip #1 – Healthy Lifestyle
The first thing that you should do when trying to get pregnant, is to adjust to healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy diets and doing regular exercises improves chances of getting pregnant. This also helps the body to be physically fit and able to handle pregnancy. For instance, avoiding fast foods will reduce chances of adding more weight and getting diseases related to it. Smoking, taking drugs, and consuming a lot of alcohol can also reduce the chances of getting pregnant. Smoking can also affect a man’s sperm count and therefore reduce the chances of getting pregnant. The aspiring mother should avoid alcohol at all cost, since it can lead to miscarriages, low birth weight baby, and premature birth.
Tip #2 – Timing Your Ovulation Period
Women undergo hormonal changes every month, that cause an egg to be released from ovaries. Generally, the egg lives for about 12 to 24 hours after it gets released from the ovary. This is usually the ovulation period which is characterized by symptoms such as: noticeable increase in clear, slippery vaginal discharge, increase in basal body temperature, and increased libido. Some women experience painful cramps during ovulation. Most women ovulate at the midpoint of their cycles. If you have a 28 day cycle, then your ovulation is most likely to be on the 14th day from the first day of your last period. A sperm can live in the six days inside the woman’s body. Therefore, unprotected sex 3 days before and after ovulation can help in conceiving. However, to be on the safe side, you should have sex during the ovulation day.
Tip #3 – Have Regular Sex With Your Partner
When trying to get pregnant, it is recommended that you have sex at least once, every two days throughout the month. This reduces the stress of timing ovulation and checking the symptoms associated with it. The more the man ejaculates, the more he produces strong and healthy sperms, which in turn increases the chance of getting pregnant. Moreover, having sex in the morning would also be of great help since the semen has the highest sperms count during this time. Missionary sex position, where the man is on top, is also a better choice since the penis is able to penetrate and ejaculate deep in the female’s genitals, bringing the sperms closer to the egg.
Tip #4 – Avoid Birth Controls Pills
Studies have shown that birth control pills are a cause of difficulty when women are trying to get pregnant. The studies show that many women take long time to get pregnant after they stopping taking the pills. Although not all birth control pills are linked to fertility problems, it is important to get advice from a doctor to learn the effects of any birth control pill that you intend to use. The doctor is in a good position to tell you how soon you can become pregnant after using these pills. However, you can try other birth control methods such as condoms, so as to avoid getting into problems associated with birth control pills.
Tip #5 – Follow Nutrition Guidelines
There are some fertility supplement available in drug stores that have helped many couple when trying to get pregnant. Most of these supplement product contain calcium, folic acid, vitamin A, E and D, magnesium and zinc. Calcium is needed for the production of fertile mucus in the vagina, while vitamins acts as antioxidants that help in removing toxins in the body.
Vitamin C also helps in ovulation, while vitamin A is necessary for sperm and testosterone production in men. Vitamin B complex and folic acid supplements are necessary for estrogen and progesterone balance as well as sex hormones production. Other herbal remedies include: green tea which is a powerful antioxidant, red clover for nourishing the uterus, Chaste berry for stimulating hormones involved in ovulation, and Ginkgo Biloba for improving blood circulation.
