 Getting Pregnant, Frequent Sex Sessions

Daily Routine Sex Is NOT A Mandate:

When you ask doctors to advise on how to get pregnant fast, some doctors advise that you have intercourse every day to increase the chances of getting pregnant. However, it is not mandatory. As mentioned earlier, it is important that you enjoy the sex.

Terminating pregnancy by medicines do bring hormonal imbalance making it more difficult to conceive again. Track your fertile window and practice regular sex during those days.
