How to get pregnant and Can I have a baby are probably FAQs when a woman is TTC. Getting pregnant is dependent on fertility, infertility and a lot more

Every woman has probably wondered this at some point. And yet, there’s really no way to know for sure.

Though having absolute certainty about your fertility is unrealistic, there are clues that you can look out for some of which may put your mind at ease. And we’ve listed them out. Our list is not exhaustive, and its existence does not mean that you should panic to know about infertility if you can’t give “yes” to every bullet point! That said, the more boxes you check, the more at ease you should be known about your own infertility:

1- You have a regular cycle:

A regular cycle is defined as having your period arrive once every 24 to 35 days, and then bleeding for 3 to 7 days, not too light, not too heavy. Here you can check for your ovulation days. You might be thinking that how to get pregnant? Deviation from these norms could indicate a problem like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS or Endometriosis, and those conditions can make becoming pregnant more difficult. In this situation, it is obvious to think that how to get pregnant if you detect these problems.

Fertility, Getting Pregnant

2- You have not had any unchecked STDs:

Some diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which spreads very quickly to the reproductive organs and harms fertility. This happens because the PID infection causes scar tissue to build up in the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and other organs, preventing ovulation and eliminating the ability to conceive. In this condition how to get pregnant? As it is difficult to conceive with such issues.

3- You have a lot of eggs: 

The more eggs you have, the higher your chances of fertility. A simple blood test that measures Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels can determine your ovarian reserve--a measure of the quantity of eggs in your body (but not your egg quality!). You can do the test even if you are on birth control, but keep in mind that it is not always covered by insurance.

4- You do not smoke or binge drink:

Smoking can seriously harm your chances of conceiving and increase the likelihood of miscarriage.

Can I Have A Baby, Fertility

  • Heavy drinking and recreational drug use can also result in fertility problems.
  • You are neither significantly overweight nor underweight: The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has said that having a BMI of over 35 or less than 19 can affect how long it takes for you to get pregnant. Getting pregnant can be the issue or you might face infertility problems also.
  • You have afertilepartner: Be it a donor’s or your lover’s, you need viable sperm to fertilize your eggs. Almost 40% of all fertility-related issues arise from the male partner. So you could still need fertility treatment even if you yourself are completely fertile. Getting pregnant is not an issue but it can be complicated to treat infertility.

Remove any IUD or stop using any birth control methods, to conceive. Getting pregnant with IUD could result in miscarriage.

Any women having fallopian tube blockage, cyst or PCOS can't conceive too. So, if you have any of these problems, get proper treatment to conceive in the future.

I don't know how many eggs I have but I know my husband's sperm is perfectly fine. The rest of the boxes are unchecked. I think I require some more fertility tests.

i think best way to get pregnant is to track your ovulation and try having sex during you most fertile window. When eggs are mature and ready to fertilize, I guess it's the best time couples should make love and pregnancy will be achieved successfully.

When it comes to planning a baby or you want to know that if you can have a baby, first of all you must check the fertility of male partner. He must have a count of 40 million sperm per ejaculation, below that a woman may not conceive even with a healthy body.

I didn't have any of the listed problems, so why I am not getting pregnant? Does my husband have infertility?
