Are you trying to have a baby?
There are many ways to get pregnant and give your body the best chance of conceiving. This article will go over some of the best ways you can increase your fertility and finally have that baby of your dreams.
The most common misconception when it comes to trying to get pregnant is that you must have intercourse on Day 14 to conceive a child. The reason for this myth is that the average day for someone to ovulate is on day 14; however it is just an average. You might ovulate later or earlier in your cycle and could be missing your peak day.
So your first step to getting pregnant is determining your ovulation day. You can do that in any number of ways, but the most popular are by charting your temperature, using ovulation predictor kits, saliva monitors, checking the position of your cervix or keeping track of your fertile cervical mucus. You can either do one method or two or three to find out your ovulation day.
The next step is to make sure that your cervical fluid is plentiful as this is what the sperm uses to swim up the Fallopian tubes to find the egg. You’ll notice that your cervical fluid (cf) becomes wetter and slippery as you approach your ovulation day. The most fertile cf is said to resemble egg whites and be stretchy and clear.
You can increase the amount of fertile cervical fluid that you produce by drinking lots of water, as this is what your body uses to make it. There are other tricks to increase the amount too, like eat carrots and take evening primrose oil to improve its quality.
You should also try and conceive using positions that involve deep penetration as this deposits the sperm close to the cervix and so they have a better chance of reaching the egg (and don’t have as far to swim).
