If you are trying to get pregnant, you probably want to know some different methods in getting pregnant that people have used successfully. Well I’ve done a few searches online and it seems that there isn’t a ‘guaranteed’ way to conceive a baby but there are a few things to help sway the odds into your favor so you have a better chance of getting pregnant.
First and foremost you and your partner’s health should be a top priority. So if you both drink or smoke it’s time to give up any unhealthy habits that might affect your bodies ability to conceive.
That also means eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise and doing some form of relaxation such as meditation or yoga. In fact yoga for fertility is fast becoming a very popular way for women to balance their reproductive hormones and get pregnant faster. At the very least it can help reduce the stresses of trying to conceive and that’s got to be a good thing.
Caffeine should be avoided by the women, but not the man – ironically caffeine ‘wakes up’ sperm and by the man drinking it before intercourse can improve your chances of getting pregnant.
Improve your Cervical Mucus
Next step in improving your fertility is to increase the amount of fertile cervical fluid that you produce. The most optimal time to get pregnant is when you have lots of egg white cervical fluid (ewcf) as this is what sustains the sperm for longer and allows them to live for up to 5 days.
You can increase your ewcf by drinking lots of water and green tea. Also eating baby carrots has been known to increase the amount of fluid you produce. And finally many women swear by taking evening primrose oil to improve the quality of their cf.
Know your Ovulation Day
Obviously if you know when you are going to release an egg the better the chances of timing sex on your ovulation day to increase your chances of conceiving. You have the highest chance of getting pregnant on the day that you ovulate.
You can determine your ovulation day by using ovulation predicator kits, charting your temperature or using ovulation saliva monitors.
There are of course other different ways of getting pregnant such as with IVF and IUI which involve using medical technology to help you have a baby.
These are just some of the methods of getting pregnant, I have included many more throughout this blog so feel free to take a look around.
