How To Get Pregnant

Though many people think that getting pregnant is the most natural thing in the world, and that it requires no instruction, there are many reasons to seek more information. Maybe you've been married for a few years and think it's the right time and you'd like it to happen quickly; maybe you want to have a baby at a specific time of year, or you're getting closer to the age at which fertility tends to become more of a concern.

If you've got a complicating factor like having already gone through a vasectomy, or if you're specifically hoping for twins, you have special concerns. For whatever reason, you're looking for tips on getting pregnant, and whatever your specific needs are, gaining as much knowledge as possible is the best way to get started.

Know Your Ovulation Cycle

The most important thing for you to know when you are
trying to get pregnant quickly is what your ovulation schedule is. Timing is everything when it comes to conception, so knowing exactly when an egg has been released helps you to know exactly when you and your partner are most fertile and most likely to conceive.

There are many ways to know exactly when you are ovulating, including monitoring the time of your periods over a period of months and calculating based on that information, checking the consistency of your cervical mucus, and taking your temperature with a basal thermometer.

Fertility predictor kits are also available; using them is probably the simplest way to be sure of when you are most likely to conceive, as all that is needed is a urine sample to tell you the best possible time to try to get pregnant.

Maximise Your Chances

In addition to monitoring your fertility, there are many things that you can do to maximize your
chances of getting pregnant, which should speed up the process. The first thing to be certain of is the health of the mother; by making sure that she is in the best possible physical shape you provide the most optimal environment for a pregnancy.

Make an appointment with your health care provider to go over any changes to diet or lifestyle that may help your process; he or she may prescribe vitamins or supplements to assist you. Quitting smoking and cutting back on alcohol are both important steps to take, not only to help you to get pregnant faster but also to ensure the best possible health for your baby once you do get pregnant. Be sure to exercise, but not too much - cutting back on too much body fat can actually decrease your chances of conceiving.

Don’t Stress

Getting pregnant is a natural process that should be enjoyable and collaborative for both parents. Try not to get frustrated or overly stressed if you don't get pregnant the first time around; that kind of success is pretty unusual. The normal amount of time it should take to get pregnant for a healthy couple around the age of 30 or younger is a year or less.

If you have been trying for that amount of time already, or have a reason to suspect that you might have a problem getting pregnant, it is a good idea to reach out to your physician for help. There are many fertility drugs and infertility treatments available, ranging from natural treatments, to prescribed medications, to more invasive procedures that can help depending upon exactly what your needs are.
