Pregnancy is a matter of probability, it doesn’t always happen even if you follow all the best instruction. The time required to get pregnant varies very much between different couples.

If you're eager to get pregnant, read on! Find out how to prepare your body for being pregnant, chart your menstrual cycle, read your cervical mucus, and pinpoint ovulation, and learn ways to have sex that will increase your glikelihood of getting pregnant. Having said that, here are outlined steps which could help you along the way.

  •  Before you begin trying to get pregnant see your physician. Make sure you are in good health and have had a regular check up from your OBGYN or medical provider. Untreated infections, sexually transmitted diseases, or poor health can affect your chances of getting pregnant. Its wise to see a doctor as well as start taking prenatal vitamins prior to getting pregnant. Most couples get pregnant within a year of trying. If you have not gotten pregnant within a year consult your doctor for advice.
  • Increase the Odds. Make your vaginal surroundings as sperm-friendly as possible. Keep away from vaginal sprays and scented tampons, artificial lubricants, and douching which can cause infections, and may wash away cervical mucus or create a hostile surroundings for the sperm. You may try a specific type of lubricant when your cervical mucus is not as conducive of getting pregnant as it should be. Pre-Seed lubricant is the sperm friendly choice of many people trying to get pregnant. After intercourse, elevate your hips on a pillow for about fifteen minutes.
  • Timing. It is important to have sex at the right time which is just before ovulation. If you have a regular 28-day cycle, you can therefore predict that ovulation is likely to occur on around Day 14. If your cycle length varies a great deal, it is hard to calculate the mid point. Ovulation is the best time to get pregnant.
  • Have enjoyable sex. Sometimes when couples are trying to pregnant, intercourse becomes a job or function of reproduction and is not as enjoyable. Try something different to spice things up. How you are feeling sexually may factor into your probability of getting pregnant. Some researchers believe that having an orgasm during intercourse raises your chances of getting pregnant. For women, the spasmic movements of orgasm will help pull the sperm into the uterus and for men a better orgasm may increase the man’s sperm count.
  • Temperature. After ovulation, a woman’s ‘rest’ body temperature rises by around 0.2°C, and keeps at this level until menstruation begins. To become aware of this rise, you need to take your temperature every morning and record it. If you discover a pattern, you should have intercourse just before your temperature is due to rise. This should be your most fertile time to get pregnant.
  • Predictor Kits. Get Ovulation kits measure the level of hormones in the body and help work out the best time to pregnant.
  • More sex. The more often you have intercourse around the right time, the more likely you are of having intercourse when you are most fertile and conceiving.
  • The man. Your partner should opt for boxers for a healthy sperm count. Having intercourse in the morning would help since the semen has the highest number of sperm count then for the woman to get pregnant.
  • Smoking. Smoking impairs sperm count, sperm motility, reduces sperm lifespan, and may cause genetic changes that affect the offspring. This reduces the chances of pregnancy.
