How to Increase your Chances of Getting Pregnant

Frustrated and disappointed with your repeated failures to conceive a child despite how hard you try? Don’t give up just yet. Searching for relevant information can be very helpful. In order to increase your chances of getting pregnant, here are some steps you can take to eliminate the factors that stand in the way of your fertility and conception.

1. Make plans early. There are many factors that affect fertility. In fact, for women who are on birth control pills may become fertile again immediately after stopping the pills, or it could take weeks or even as long as one year. Your recovery time from the effects of the birth control you used is dependent on the method of chemical birth control used as well. For instance, women who took birth control pills typically become pregnant more quickly than those who have used birth control injections. If you are still struggling even without birth control, then consider looking into an iui as an option.

This is why it is important to plan ahead if you want to become pregnant. Since gaining back your normal cycle of reproduction after your stint with chemical birth control might take time, getting pregnant right away should not be expected. However, this does not mean you are totally invulnerable to pregnancy after you cease a particular chemical birth control method.

2. Take it easy on the carbs. For people who are overweight, weight loss plays a vital role in magnifying your chances to conceive a baby. A high intake of carbohydrates brings about disturbance to your reproductive cycle, whatever your fitness level may be. Taking it easy on your carbohydrate consumption can aid in solving your reproductive issues whether you’re aware of it or not—and even if there are no noticeable symptoms.

This particular tip is intended for women who are having problems with their fertility levels because of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. A condition that is commonly undiagnosed, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an ordeal for a large population of women. To add to the pregnancy complications, other symptoms that could either be noticeable or remain non-existent include the growth of facial hair, irregular period and cysts, among others. The best remedy for this is a consultation with a doctor and keeping your carbohydrate intake at bay.

3. Regulate your sexual activity. While it’s true that consistent sex is obviously what can make you pregnant, excessive sex can actually have adverse effects. It may sound odd, but having sex too often can actually decrease your man’s sperm count. Instead of engaging in sexual activity on a daily basis, increase your chances of being impregnated by doing the deed every other day.  This way your partner’s sperm count will stay at a functional level.

4. Get back to the basics. Your position during sex has a lot do with your likelihood of getting pregnant. It will help if you and your partner will engage in intercourse in the missionary position, specifically with your bottom at a higher altitude with the help of a pillow.  This will stop gravity from getting in the way of your efforts to conceive. You don’t have to stick with the missionary position if you don’t enjoy it; just make sure that you finish in that position.
