Turn Infertility into Pregnancy

The first thing that you should do when trying to become pregnant is to adjust to healthy lifestyle. Eating a healthy diet and doing regular exercise improves your chances of getting pregnant. Consider also that a body which is physically fit is better able to handle pregnancy.  Remember to eat your five serves of fruit or vegetables every day and drink plenty of water rather than fizzy drinks. Try to reduce or avoid fast foods to help reduce your chances of adding more weight and thus diseases related to weight gain. It goes without saying these days that smoking, taking drugs, and consuming a lot of alcohol can also reduce the chances of getting pregnant, since it can lead to miscarriages, low birth weight baby, premature birth and may also harm your baby once you are pregnant. All of these factors can also affect a man’s sperm count and therefore reduce the chances of you getting pregnant.

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. Sperm can live in the six days inside the woman’s body, therefore, unprotected sex 3 days before and after ovulation is the most helpful timing for your best chances of conceiving. Ideally though you should have sex on ovulation day itself!

Tip #3 – Have Regular Sex With Your Partner

When trying to get pregnant, it is recommended that you have sex once every two days throughout the month. This reduces the need to keep track 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, bringing the sperms closer to the egg, though don’t stress about this too much – just have lots of sex and have fun!

Tip #4 – Avoid Birth Controls Pills

Studies have shown that birth control pills could cause difficulty when women are trying to get pregnant. Of course you would have stopped talking the pill now that you are trying to get pregnant but we’re talking about taking it over the longer term. The studies show that some women will take a longer time to get pregnant after they stopping taking the pills, and although not all birth control pills are linked to fertility problems, it is important to get advice from your doctor to learn the effects of any birth control pill that you already take or intend to use. Your doctor is in the best position to help with advice on how soon you can become pregnant after using these pills. Remember there are other birth control methods you can try such as condoms, which will help avoid problems associated with birth control pills.

Tip #5 – Follow Nutrition Guidelines

There are some fertility supplements 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.  You should discuss beneficial supplements and dietary advice with your medical practitioner to ensure they are the correct ones for your circumstances.
