Looking for methods to increase chances of getting pregnant? Look no more, because here are ten easy ways to improve your fertility.
First, consult your doctor. Aside from giving you his professional advice, your doctor can also recommend prenatal vitamins, like folic acid supplements, which can save your baby from having serious birth defects.
Second, stop taking pills as soon as you can. You will probably have an irregular cycle for a few months after withdrawing from using contraception. Additionally, you will probably be fertile only after a month of stopping.
Third, find out when your ovulation date is. Take advantage of your most fertile days by trying for a baby then. There are approximately seven days when you are considered most fertile.
Fourth, start eating healthy and get yourself into good shape. Research shows that underweight and overweight women have less chances of conceiving right away.
Fifth, stop smoking and doing drugs. Both vices are not only unhealthy for you, but they can also seriously damage your baby. These can also cause you to have premature births and miscarriages, in addition to possibly having a low-weight baby.
Sixth, reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake. Caffeine may cause you to have a stillbirth, and alcohol may poison your baby. There are no universally agreed “safe levels” for both substances, though it is probably better be more conscious by abstaining entirely from both, if you can.
Seventh, try using sexual positions that will increase chances of getting pregnant by allowing your partner to deposit the sperm as close to the cervix as possible. Examples of these include the missionary position and rear-entry positions.
Eighth, encourage your partner to increase him sperm count by wearing loose, cotton boxers, which allow the testicles to become cooler and produce more sperm. You should also discourage him from taking hot baths and going to saunas, which can lower his sperm count.
Ninth, encourage your partner to live a healthier lifestyle as well. Not only will this improve his sperm count and the quality of his sperm, but it will also prevent the baby from having birth defects as well.
Tenth, try not to stress yourself out. Even if you do all you can to increase chances of getting pregnant, you will probably still end up waiting a little. Relax. This is normal. As long as everything is going well, you can and will conceive a baby.
