8- Have a Right-Time Sex

The easiest way to know how to get pregnant soon is to have an unprotected sexual intercourse during your most fertile days. For this, you need to track your ovulation and the most fertile days. Ask your partner to get intimated during your ovulation period.

It will maximize your chance to attain pregnancy faster.  You can try having unprotected sex 4-5 days before your ovulation. Sperms survive for 4-5 days in your vaginal cavity. By the time your fertile window will open, you will have that head to go inside and hit the egg freely.

9- Avoid Lubricants

While having an unprotected sex during ovulation, avoid using lubricants to stimulate the action. Lubricants can slow down the flow of sperm, sometimes may kill the sperm. This can obstruct pregnancy even if you had an unprotected sexual intercourse during your most fertile days. Even saliva do not work as a healthy lubricant. Try to avoid them. It seems very necessary; you can try some natural lubricants like peanut or vegetable oil.

10- Kick away Stress & Anxiety

Stress or over thinking can disturb your menstrual cycles and you may not track your ovulation at the right time. This way you can miss out your chance to intimate with your partner on your most fertile days. Do not take stress. You can try Yoga and Meditation to relax yourself.
