Five Top Tips for Getting Pregnant Fast

Five Top Tips for Getting Pregnant Fast

How to get pregnant fast has been asked many times in history. While tracking ovulation is one, there are many pregnancy tips that can help in getting pregnant

For some women, conceiving can be as easy as tossing out their contraception, whether they're working on their first baby or their fourth. For others, reaching the goal of fertilization becomes a nightly chore, a mad mating dance that revolves around ovulation kits, specific sexual positions, and, more and more commonly, a succession of fertility tests to help pinpoint possible problems.

Whether you've just started trying to become pregnant or have been at it for a while, heeding some common sense advice that's based on good science can help boost your odds of conceiving. Here, noted fertility experts from around the country have outlined the do's, don'ts, and don't-bother-withs of getting pregnant.

Have Sex Frequently:

It may seem like a no-brainer, but given many couples' hectic schedules, it's easy to overlook this one. If you're not timing your cycles or you have irregular periods, you can cover your bases by having sex every other day, say fertility specialists.

Figure Out when you ovulate:

Women with very regular 28-day cycles can just count 14 days from the first day of their period to determine their ovulation date. If your cycles aren't regular (or even if they are), an ovulation kit can help you pinpoint your most fertile time.

Most ovulation kits measure the level of luteinizing hormone (LH), one of the hormones that signal the ovaries to release an egg, present in your urine. LH begins to surge around 36 hours before you ovulate, but most kits don't detect it until 24 hours prior. A woman with a 28-day cycle should start testing her urine on day nine or ten after the start of her period so she doesn't miss her surge.

A new palm-size, the electronic device called Clear Plan Easy measures LH and estrogen levels and can signal ovulation up to five days in advance.

Monitoring cervical mucus is another way to track ovulation. "It's not as reliable as a kit," but it doesn't cost anything." This method involves checking your secretions for a few months until you notice a pattern. Estrogen causes mucus to thin after your period while rising levels of progesterone right after ovulation make it thicken. Once you pinpoint when you ovulate, you can plan to have sex several times leading up to that day.

The Drawbacks:

Many women find this method inconvenient or inaccurate since such factors as nursing and antihistamines, even fertility drugs, can dry up mucus.

Charting your basal body temperature is useful for figuring out when you ovulate. "Your temperature usually dips by half a degree 24 hours before you ovulate, then it goes up as you ovulate". But since basal body temperature can be thrown off by a number of things, such as illness, don't rely on it alone.

Step up sex before ovulation:

As soon as you pick up a hormonal surge, have sex that day, plus the next two days. Pregnancy rates peak two days before ovulation. Some experts speculate that's when cervical mucus is at its optimum for helping sperm travel to the egg and break down it's shell-like coating.

Getting Pregnant, How To Get Pregnant Fast

Sperm can live inside the uterus for 24 to 48 hours, which means there will be plenty on hand to greet the egg once ovulation starts.

Another reason to have sex before you ovulate, as opposed to the day it happens: An egg survives for only 12 to 24 hours after ovulation, so if you begin to ovulate in the morning and wait until nighttime to have sex, the egg may lose its viability by the time the sperm gets to it. Cervical mucus starts to become thick and impenetrable right after ovulation, rendering it "hostile" to the passage of sperm.

Enjoy yourself:

The most important thing to remember is to keep sex fun understanding your body. When it becomes a chore, it's easy to view sex as just one more item on your to-do list.

Give it time:

Barring fertility problems and other conditions or habits that can interfere with conception, half of all couples get pregnant within six months and 85 percent do so within a year.

I have been following a healthy lifestyle yet still not succeeding in getting pregnant. Could there be any other medical condition? But as far as I know I don't have any.

There are certain medical issues like women have PCOS, thyroid and they face difficulties in conceiving over a year. Sometimes, those who have endometrial cancer or infection, they also take time a long time to conceive.

When To Take Pregnancy Test?

Ideal time to take pregnancy test is after two weeks of missed period. The wait is because the body needs time to develop a level of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormones in case you are pregnant. It is this HCG, which the pregnancy test kit detects to show the desired result. In case you test too early then even if you are pregnant the Pregnancy test kit will show negative.
