Trying to conceive and not being successful is one of the most stressful issues a couple can face. Often, women and men have no problem there’s an issue until they’re not successful becoming pregnant on their own. There are some things you can do to increase your odds of conceiving.
Using the tips below can help to increase your odds of getting pregnant.
Timing Is Everything
There is an extremely narrow window of time where a woman is fertile and able to become pregnant. Once a woman ovulates, the egg she produced only survives for about 24 hours without being fertilized. A man’s sperm can live inside of a woman for several days waiting for an egg. Therefore, it is best to have intercourse in the days immediately prior to and including ovulation.
A woman with regular 28 day cycles typically ovulates around day 14. To pinpoint the exact time of ovulation, you can use ovulation testers or track your basal body temperature. Charting your cycle provides insight on the best time to try to conceive.
Practice Healthy Living
A healthy diet, getting adequate rest and exercise all play a role in your fertility. Your body is best equipped to become pregnant when you are in good health. Healthy living also helps to prepare your body to support a pregnancy. Your partner’s fertility can be affected by unhealthy habits as well. This is the perfect time to stop smoking and to start healthier habits.
Reduce Your Stress
While stress does not cause infertility, reducing your stress can increase the odds of you becoming pregnant. Find a way to reduce the stress in your life. You can exercise, read a book, go to the movies, spend time with friends or exercise. Make sure to take some time to take care of yourself.
