The younger population today may not agree with this concept, but we guess there could be people who want to hold the responsibility of parenthood as soon as possible.
These sincere people follow and uphold the law of procreation to the perfection. Or there are people who just want to get pregnant faster. This article deals with a few simple things that can help you conceive faster. One single factor which will give you an edge over other tools is knowing your ovulation. Knowing your ovulation can help you in time your pregnancy and helps you conceive faster.
Chart your signs of ovulation
Charting means, taking your temperature, checking your cervix, keeping notes on your cervical mucus. You can also write down your signs of ovulation pain, back pain, breast tenderness, and any of those other things that may indicate ovulation is nearing. You can also have saliva testing, which you can pick up at your local drugstore as well as an at-home sperm analysis test. Charting your basal body temperature every morning will prove to be a fantastic way to have a record of your own personal ovulation cycle, so you can begin to anticipate when you in particular will ovulate.
For the most approximate way to determine when you ovulate, subtract 14 from the length of your cycle. For example:
- If you have a 28-day cycle, you ovulate around day 14.
- If you have a 25-day cycle, you ovulate around day 11.
- If you have a 35-day cycle, you ovulate around day 21.
Learn about your most fertile days
If you don’t know your ovulation dates, you can use ovulation predictor kits (OPKs), you can try an ovulation monitor, or you can do something as simple as an ovulation calculator. Once you figure out when your fertile window is, this is the time you want to be baby dancing, slightly before, during your fertile window, and then of course, a little bit afterwards as well. Remember, you only ovulate once every monthly cycle, and ovulation only occurs once. It is imperative that you know when you ovulate so you can properly time bed act. If you miss your fertile window, you’ll assuredly miss that monthly cycle and move on to the next month. If you haven’t pinpointed your exact day of ovulation, as a general rule of thumb, you can have the act every other day. But keeping this up throughout the month may prove tiring, so timing play to the day before, day of, and day after ovulation are big steps on the road to conceiving.
Have act before you ovulate
Sperms can stick around in your uterus and fallopian tubes for two to three days, but your egg only lasts for 12 to 24 hours after it is released. So having play before you ovulate boosts the chances that there will be sperm around to greet your egg as soon as it debuts.
For a typical 28-day cycle (where you ovulate on day 14), here’s what you’ll do:
- Start having act a few times a week as soon as your period ends. Getting busy that often ensures you won’t miss your most fertile time, especially if your cycle length varies from month to month.
- Make a point to have play every other day starting around day 10.
- When you have a positive result on your OPK (around day 12), have act that day and the next two days — these are your primo days out of the month to conceive.
The best position for you
You have many options like dog style, traditional, and side-by-side, but not all positions are created equal when you want to get pregnant. The best position for couples trying to conceive would be either dog-style or traditional with hips slightly elevated. Both allow for deeper penetration, to ensure that the sperm is deposited as close to the egg as possible. Also, after play, it just makes good common sense to stay still laying down for 5-10 minutes, perhaps atop a small pillow or cushion, and allow the maximum amount of time for the sperm to find its mark – before getting up to go to the bathroom or walking around, etc.
Supplements are another option for women. There are a number of both prescription & over the counter supplements on the market that can assist a woman’s body to boost their fertility levels. The most common prescribed fertility medication is Clomid, which helps stimulate ovulation. From brandslike ConceiveEasy to over-the-counter vitamins or minerals like B6 or Vitex, check with your doctor first to see which options are best for you.
No smoking, drinking, caffeine, or dieting
Making healthy lifestyle choices are paramount when you are on the road to conception. Stop the smoking, stop the drinking, and pass on the latte. Many women overlook the caffeine angle, and yet many will find a simple reduction in caffeine intake proves a big boost to fertility. There is also a common misconception about how weight affects your fertility. When you are trying to get pregnant, being the correct weight or a little overweight is better than being too skinny. Studies have shown nearly two-thirds of women who were underweight struggled with infertility while being slightly overweight actually appears to help enhance your fertility.
Conceiving may depend of a lot of other physiological and psychological factors, but these are simple steps people might overlook. Being aware of such practices boosts confidence and thereby prepares you for a healthy life for you and your kids.
