Trying to conceive... For some couples falling pregnant can take a few days or weeks, but there are couples on the other end of the spectrum, where it can take couples months, or even years. It is said, about 1 in 7 couples can have some problems conceiving a baby.
When you are trying to conceive, it can be a little bit overwhelming and a little bit confusing to know where to start, and what to do first to maximise your chances of getting pregnant. The first thing that you should do when you are trying to conceive is to figure out when you are ovulating. Ovulation is the only time during the month when a woman can get pregnant, and it only lasts for around 24-48 hours before the egg begins to die. Therefore, knowing your ovulation cycles is a very important part of getting pregnant. You can use an over the counter ovulation predictor kit, track your cycles by taking your basal body temperature, pay attention to your cervical mucus, or learn how to note the position of your cervix to track your ovulation.
Other ways to boost your chances of getting pregnant, according to www.pregnancytips.org, include losing weight if you are overweight, eating a healthy diet and cutting out bad-for-you foods, getting plenty of sleep, exercising regularly, and cutting out things that could damage your fertility like smoking, alcohol use, and stress. Make sure that after you find out when you are ovulating, that you plan intercourse accordingly to make sure you are timing it just right. Once you get all of these things in order, getting pregnant should be a breeze.
