Tips for getting pregnant quickly and naturally
If the time has come and both you and your partner feel ready to become parents it is the moment to get to work; but, beyond increasing the couples sexual relationship and visiting your doctor to know that everything is in order, there are some good tips that you can follow to help you get pregnant. And so in OneHowTo.com we share some strategies that you can easily implement at home.
The first bit of advice is to have patience. Conceiving is not always easy and it is important to remain calm and avoid stress. Doctors recommend that if there are any problems or previously detected pathologies, the couple should try natural methods for one year before starting to worry.
Stop using contraception when you want to start trying for a baby. There is a belief that you should cleanse your body of the hormones contained in the contraceptive pill, but the reality is that you are exposed to getting pregnant from the day in which you stop taking it, so do it only when ready.
Health matters so if you are over your weight try to lose those extra kilos, reduce alcohol consumption and if possible stop smoking, increase your intake of vitamins and consume folic acid, which is vital for foetal development. Follow a balanced diet and create a favourable scenario for getting pregnant, remember that during pregnancy your body will be at its limit, so it is good to be healthy
Be aware of your menstrual cycle, as it is useless to have sex if you do not know at what point you are likely to become pregnant and when not. It is important that you establish precisely how your menstrual cycle works and on what days you are ovulating so to get best results. You should also know when your fertile days are.
Forget the stress and focus on fully enjoying each encounter, as well as the trying stage. It is no secret that stress negatively affects our body and can alter your menstrual cycle, so it is important to focus on strengthening the bonds of intimacy with your partner and leave aside the pressure of getting pregnant
Did you know that some sexual positions can help you conceive faster? To increase your chances of getting pregnant, you should have sex with the woman at the bottom, preferably with your legs up. You should also try not to wash yourself right after sex, to allow time for the sperm to swim up your uterus.
Not only your efforts count, those of your partner also matter. So it is important that he, like you, eats healthily, that he increases physical activity, doesn't smoke, and sets aside as much as possible any vices. He should also ejaculate at least every other day, which according to new research improves sperm quality, necessary for a successful pregnancy.
Just to make sure everything is fine, maybe your partner should have a sperm count, so to know if the odds by him are high or not. Similarly, to allow for the passage of sperm through your vagina avoid the use of lubricants during sex and momentarily stop using vaginal washes, do everything as natural as possible.
If you have tried during a period close to a year without success, it may be advisable to visit your doctor to assess the situation. Read more tips to get pregnant in our OneHowTo article: 5 tips to get pregnant.
