The Best Way To Get Pregnant That Your Mom Never Told You About
When couples decide that it’s time to start a family, or add to their family, chances are they don’t want to waste any time. They want to get pregnant right away, and many couples don’t realize that conceiving is actually a science. So, without further ado, let’s go over the absolute best way to get pregnant.
The most important thing that you can do for your fertility is learning how to tell when you are ovulating. Most women don’t realize that the entire ovulation process only takes between 4-5 days, and those 4-5 days are the only time during the entire month that a woman can get pregnant.
Every month, when the egg is released to be fertilized, it can only live for a few hours before it dies. Therefore, if you don’t know when that very short time frame is, chances are, you are not going to be getting pregnant very easily. Ovulation should be the first stop in your fertility journey. That way, you can figure out when you are ovulating, and go from there.
Check into basal body thermometers, ovulation predictor kits, tips on how to check your cervical mucus, and online fertility tracking software to get started figuring out when you ovulate. On a similar note, if you are for some reason not ovulating, you can also find that out right away so you don’t have to waste your time trying to conceive when you should be seeing a fertility doctor to figure out why you aren’t ovulating.
Once you have figured out when you are ovulating, you might think it should be easy after that. Just have sex during ovulation, right? However, things are not always as easy as they seem. Should you have sex once during ovulation? Twice? Every day? Three times a day? It sounds confusing doesn’t it? Most experts agree that having sex every day or multiple times a day is too much, because it depletes the sperm supply too quickly.
The best plan is to have sex every other day during ovulation. That will give you the best chance of getting pregnant without depleting the sperm count too much. Also, you can plan to have sex a day or two before ovulation as well. This is because sperm lives much longer than the egg, and you can actually plan to have the sperm “ready and waiting” for the egg to be released. This will give you the best chance of getting pregnant.
If you are planning to have sex during ovulation, your next job is to decide what the best position to use during sex is. Basically, you need to use gravity to your advantage here. Having sex in positions that provide the most penetration will help to deposit the sperm as close to the egg as possible.
For this to happen, choose positions such as missionary with hips elevated by a pillow, or on all fours (doggy style). These positions are the best for conceiving. Avoid any positions that don’t offer the most penetration, or where gravity will be working against you, such as woman on top positions.
It may seem obvious, but one of the best ways to get pregnant is to take care of yourself and your body, and get it in the best shape for conception. For both men and women, this means avoiding alcohol and tobacco products, and of course, illegal drugs. Eating a healthy diet is also an important part of fertility health, since it is how you get the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that your body needs. You also need to make sure that you maintain a healthy body weight.
Being overweight or underweight can make it very hard for you to get pregnant, so don’t take your weight for granted. Also getting enough sleep and exercise is a great way to take care of your physical health as well as your mental health. You may want to invest in a prenatal vitamin as well to help boost your overall health and well being while you try to conceive. They are very inexpensive and are a great way to give your fertility a little boost safely.
There are also a few things you can do to give your fertility a boost when you are trying to conceive. One of the easiest things you can do is to invest in some sort of over the counter fertility supplement. These supplements are available without a doctor’s prescription and are dirt cheap when you compare them to the price of prescription fertility meds like Clomid or costly and invasive fertility treatments like IVF.
A great option is fertility blends, which take all of the best ingredients that are all natural and known to boost fertility and combine them up into one really easy to take pill. One great brand of fertility blend is ConceiveEasy. You can even order these fertility supplements online, and have them delivered straight to your door.
You can even get some awesome freebies with some of these blends, like 20 free pregnancy tests or 20 free ovulation tests, so keep an eye on those. Fertility blends are a great way to boost your fertility with no chemicals or dangerous ingredients.
