This includes age for conception, Presence of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Time in the ovulation cycle, stress levels, and use of alcohol and smoking is also considered.

Most couples, in reality, more than eight in 10, will conceive in twelve months if they have regular sex and don't utilize or use the contraception. On the off chance that you've been striving for some time, it may be worth verifying whether your lifestyle could influence the chances of getting pregnant. Check out these factors and bad habits that are affecting your fertility! Are you thinking that how to get pregnant? Getting pregnant is not that easy. You also need to know some pregnancy tips and pregnancy symptoms. 

Let’s know the conditions that can impact your ability to conceive a child and the chances of getting pregnant

1. At what age you are trying to conceive?

Lesser the age, more are the chances of getting pregnant. This is because with age both the number and quality of eggs decrease significantly with every passing year. Fertility is at its top in your 20s while following in your 30s, fertility begins diminishing step-by-step. In your 40s your pregnancy chances get decreased extensively and you may need to take assisted reproductive techniques to become a parent. Are you thinking that how to get pregnant? Getting pregnant is not that easy. You also need to know some pregnancy tips and pregnancy symptoms. 

2. What is Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

Pelvic Inflammatory disease (PID) affects your uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. Pain in your pelvic area or unusual vaginal bleeding etc. An untreated PID leads to blockages or adhesions in the fallopian tubes causing infertility and issues in getting pregnant. PID also increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Are you thinking that how to get pregnant? Getting pregnant is not that easy.

3. Are You trying to getting pregnant with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?

The polycystic ovarian syndrome impacts your hormone levels, menstrual cycles, and thus the fertility. The ovarian cysts may result in enlarged ovaries and lower the number of eggs further affecting your chances of getting pregnant.

4. Are you trying to conceive with overweight or underweight?

A woman who is underweight or overweight may have some difficulty conceiving a baby. An undernourished body may not ovulate appropriately. Excess weight can significantly affect the fertility. Simply being over your optimal weight diminishes your possibility of getting pregnant regardless of the possibility that you are ovulating regularly. If you are trying to get pregnant, it is important to maintain a healthy balanced diet and active routine for healthy body weight.

5. Are you trying to conceive at the right time?

Women should consult their gynecologist to know their best ovulation periods when they are trying to conceive. You'll have better fortunes if you monitor ovulation and begin engaging in sex at the correct time.

6. Are you stressed out?

All kinds of stress, mental or physical take a toll on your body. Stress leads to improper sleep, weakness, and hormonal imbalance. Studies show stress, anxiety, and depression diminishes your chances of getting pregnant. Are you thinking that how to get pregnant? Getting pregnant is not that easy.

You also need to know some pregnancy tips and pregnancy symptoms. When trying to conceive do away with the hectic lifestyle to improve your chances of pregnancy.

7. Why say big "NO" to SMOKE, ALCHOHOL, and DRUGS?

Smokers, heavy drinkers, and medication addicts might face serious health issues like damaged reproductive organs, irregular ovulation, genetic issues, and miscarriage risks. Men who smoke or drinks will have brought down sperm count and might face issues like poor sperm motility and obstruct conception. Women who are addicted to smoking, liquor or medications can even experience early menopause diminishing their chances of getting pregnant. 

If you are facing any of the above-mentioned complications, please consult your gynecologist for cures and treatments.

For me having a random sex decreases the chances of getting pregnant. One should always track their cycles and calculate the ovulation day to know their maximum chances of getting pregnant. Getting intimate during fertile days really helps to get pregnant.
