Having Problems Getting Pregnant? What To Do Next

in Ovulation
If you are having problems getting pregnant, then don't lose heart. We read so much about unwanted pregnancies and spend much of our adult lives avoiding becoming pregnant that it's all too easy to imagine that as soon as you want a baby, then conceiving will be easy. However, it's often not like this at all.

When you consider how complex pregnancy is, it seems like a miracle that anyone manages to have a baby at all. There are just 12 opportunities a year as a healthy woman will normally release just one egg per month. Within each month, there are just a couple of fertile days and sometimes, the issue can be a simple as timing things right.

Before you do anything else, if you are having problems getting pregnant, then arm yourself with an ovulation predictor kit. Although you can determine ovulation using other methods, such as basal body temperature and cervical mucous, a predictor kit ensures 99% accuracy and this is important.

Ideally, you should have intercourse a couple of days before ovulation, on ovulation day and for a day or two afterwards. If you haven't spent time beforehand establishing your cycle, then it might take a couple of months to map out your cycle. However, during this time, still continue to have intercourse regularly. Ovulation happens 14 days before the first day of your period and so if your cycle is 28 days, ovulation will be on day 14 and on day 16 if your cycle is 30 days.

Dietary modification is never a wasted step to take if you are having problems getting pregnant. Changing your diet to one which eliminates harmful elements, such as refined carbohydrates, white sugar, additives and pesticides will be beneficial. You should also up your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, beans and seeds. Also, drinking lots of water can help to keep your internal organs healthy and hydrated and is particularly helpful for sperm health.

There are now pre-natal supplements designed for both men and women which can be taken for several months prior to conception and during the time you are trying to conceive. These are not only for couples who are having problems getting pregnant but will ensure that you are not missing out on any vitamins, minerals or trace elements, a lack of which can be a contributory factor for infertility.

Despite researching and putting into practice tips on how to become pregnant quickly, naturally, some couples still do not conceive after several months. Rather than leaving matters completely to chance, it makes sense to implement a tried and tested method which is guaranteed to work.
