Having trouble getting pregnant or taking longer originally planned? Here's 6 fast fertility fixes to help get pregnant faster.

Okay, so there are a few simple things that can help you in conceiving even faster. And one of those would be the biggest factor of all — knowing your ovulation. Knowing your ovulation can help you in timing when to baby dance and that as well helps you in how to conceive even faster. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Learn which are your most fertile days

Ovulation Predictor KitNow if you don’t know your ovulation dates, you can use ovulation predictor kits (OPKs), you can try an ovulation monitor, or you can do something as simple as an ovulation calculator. Now, once you figure out when your fertile window is, this is the time you want to be baby dancing, slightly before, during your fertile window, and then of course, a little bit afterwards as well. Remember, you only ovulate once every monthly cycle, and ovulation only occurs once. It is imperative that you know when you ovulate so you can properly time intercourse. If you miss your fertile window, you’ll assuredly miss that monthly cycle and move on to the next month. If you haven’t pinpointed your exact day of ovulation, as a general rule of thumb, you can have intercourse every other day. But keeping this up throughout the month may prove tiring, so timing intercourse to the day before, day of, and day after ovulation are big steps on the road to conceiving.


Chart your signs of ovulation

Chart Your Basal Body TemperatureSome other options you have to increase your odds of conception, even faster, would be charting. Now charting means, taking your temperature, checking your cervix, keeping notes on your cervical mucus. You can also write down your signs of ovulation pain, back pain, breast tenderness and any of those other things that may indicate ovulation is nearing. (Read more in-depth about all your ovulation signs and how to check your cervix position and your cervical mucus.) You can also have saliva testing, which you can pick up at your local drugstore as well as an at-home semen analysis test. Pretty cool, huh? Charting your basal body temperature every morning will prove to be a fantastic way to have a record of your own personal ovulation cycle, so you can begin to anticipate when you in particular will ovulate. Besides which, charting & temping is a free option, whereas taking OPKs or purchasing an ovulation monitor can be a bit more pricey.

Fertility supplements

Clomid Fertility Pills for WomenSupplements are another option for women. There are a number of both prescription & over the counter supplements on the market that can assist a woman’s body to boost their fertility levels. The most common prescribed fertility medication is Clomid, which helps stimulate ovulation. Over the counter supplements are also an option, to assist in regulating your hormones, helping stimulate ovulation, and helping lengthen your luteal phase – all necessary things that need to happen in order for you to achieve conception. From brand name options like ConceiveEasy to over the counter vitamins or minerals like B6 or Vitex, check with your healthcare practitioner first to see which options are best for you.

Which position is best for you?

Best Sex Positions to Get PregnantAn option that couples have together, would be your sexual position. Yes, sexual position. You have many options like doggy style, missionary, and side-by-side, but not all positions are created equal when you want to get pregnant. The best position for couples trying to conceive would be either doggy-style or missionary with hips slightly elevated. Both allow for deeper penetration, to ensure that the sperm is deposited as close to the egg as possible. However, be sure not to raise your hips too much because then you can bypass the cervix altogether. So be careful with that one. But keep in mind that a little bit of gravity can’t hurt to help the sperm find its way to your egg. And also, after intercourse, it just makes good common sense to stay still laying down for 5-10 minutes, perhaps atop a small pillow or cushion, and allow the maximum amount of time for the sperm to find its mark – before getting up to go to the bathroom or walking around, etc.

Things your man can do

No Tighty WhitiesAnd then this last one is for the men specifically. Keep those sperm cool! No warm showers, no hot tubs, no hot laptops in your lap, no super snug underwear, no bike riding. Anything that is going to increase the warmth in the genital area will decrease your sperm count as well as their motility. Furthermore, advise your partner to abstain from intercourse with you for 3-5 days before ovulation, to ensure enough sperm is built up to ensure maximum chance of conception.

No smoking, drinking, caffeine… or dieting

Correct Weight to Get PregnantIn this day & age, it goes without saying that making healthy lifestyle changes are paramount when you’re on the road to conception. Stop the smoking, stop the drinking, and pass on the latte grande. Many women overlook the caffeine angle, and yet many will find a simple reduction in caffeine intake proves a big boost to fertility. There’s also a common misconception about how weight affects your fertility. When you’re trying to get pregnant, being the correct weight or a little overweight is better than being too skinny. Studies have shown nearly two-thirds of women who were underweight struggled with infertility while being slightly overweight actually appears to help enhance your fertility.

    I have had two miscarriages and just purchased the conceive easy starter kit. I have been trying for 9 months after having a healing period following the second miscarriage. Do you think that conceive easy could do the trick?

    I had my IUD removed in January and had a period the next month. The following month in March my period was a week late, but I was happy it came since I had a negative pregnancy test results, this at least meant I was ovulating. The first day of my period was March 22 and ended March 26. Here I am 12 days after the first day of my most recent period and I am having some light bleeding. I am taking conceiveasy, and have been on it for about 2 weeks now. I am 33 and we have two kids but are wanting to continue to grow our family. Is this normal to have bleeding in between with most recent changes?
