GET PREGNANT FAST: 4 STEPS FOR THE BEST CHANCES OF CONCEIVING QUICKLY
Do you want to have a baby, soon?
For many of us, once you are sure you’re ready to expand your family, it can’t happen fast enough. You probably want to make sure you’re minimizing the time you have to wait to get pregnant—after all, 9 months already sounds like an eternity when you’re waiting for your newborn to come into the world.
Aside from luck, women who get pregnant fast often take a few of the same steps; there are 4 major things you can do to help speed up the process. Read on to learn the things you can do to help you get pregnant fast.
WANT TO GET PREGNANT? VISIT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE YOU START TRYING.
One of the best ways to begin a healthy pregnancy is with a pre-conception visit to your doctor’s office. During this visit, your doctor will review your medical history, your current health, and the supplements and prescriptions that you have been taking. If you take prescription medication frequently, this is especially important as there are several that are not to be taken during pregnancy or while trying to conceive.
Your physician should also be able to make recommendations on lifestyle changes that could help improve your chances of conceiving quickly.
LIFESTYLE CHANGES FOR YOU & YOUR PARTNER
A healthy pregnancy depends on both partners—not just the one that will carry the baby.
For both you and your partner, cutting down alcohol consumption and completely tobacco use will help better your chances of maintaining healthy reproductive organs. In addition, ensuring you are both consuming a diet rich in zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins C & D helps ensure healthy ovaries and strong, plentiful sperm.
For the men, avoiding areas of extreme heat like hot tubs or saunas while you are trying to conceive is a good choice. Sperm production can be affected significantly by these high temperatures, and the effects can last for months after exposure.
FIGURE OUT WHEN YOU ARE OVULATING
Getting pregnant fast often comes down to timing. There is small window in each of your cycles where you have the potential to get pregnant, and you can identify this time through calendar tracking, basal body temperature measurement, or by using an ovulation predictor kit.
The most convenient and accurate method of tracking your fertile period is Ovu Control. This product is a reusable apparatus that can let you know when conceiving is the most likely based on a saliva test—much easier, and less costly than relying on urine test strips.
ENSURE YOU’RE TRYING AT THE RIGHT TIME & FREQUENCY
During your fertile period, you should try to conceive every day to maximize your chances. Keep in mind that if it has been days since you last tried, there will probably be a portion of non-useful sperm present until ejaculation takes place.
If you are not using a method to predict when you are fertile, or you are using the calendar method, it is suggested that you try every other day, for a longer period of time (between the 7th and 21st days of your cycle).
