Well, the answer is not always simple, but, fortunately, there are many things you can try in order to enhance your chances of getting pregnant. Here is a list of the most effective ways to get pregnant faster:

Find out when you ovulate

In order to get pregnant, you need to make you sure you know when you ovulate. For this, there are many tried and true methods to pinpoint your ovulation date. The 3 most efficient means are using an ovulation predictor kit (OPK), charting your basal body temperature, or using a fertility monitor.

Ovulation predictor kit – An ovulation prediction kit (OPK) is a pregnancy-test style mid-stream applicator or test strip that you dip into your urine stream. The OPK measures a special hormone called LH (Luteinizing Hormone) found in urine just before the ovulation period. Once you get a positive OPK, you know you will ovulate within the next 24-48 hours.

Basal body temperature chartCharting your basal body temperature every day will determine your thermal shift patterns and help you predict your ovulation period. For this, you will take your waking temperatures every morning before getting out of bed and chart these temps daily in order to note a sizeable temp spike, which tells you that you have ovulated.

Fertility monitors - Fertility monitors are a more expensive option than an OPK, but it is a device that is reusable month after month. Like an OPK, it measures your LH levels, but also other hormones and notifies you the best time for getting pregnant.

How to time intercourse

Once you have determined an ovulating schedule, you can start planning the right time and frequency for your sexual intercourse. You should have regular sex, and not focus on only having sex when ovulating – in order to make sure, try to have sex 3 times a week. Always have sex before ovulating and not after, because the sperm will last in the female body longer than the woman’s egg. You can also be sure to use certain sexual positions that will keep the sperm in the female body longer, such as the missionary position.

Lifestyle changes

Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol or taking drugs, because, not only will they affect any unborn, but they also decrease your fertility.

Dietary changes

If you are trying to get pregnant, you will want to focus on a diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A as beta carotene (not all vitamin A is good) will improve the amount and quality of the female cervical fluid and facilitate pregnancy. Additionally, folic acid supplements will help prevent pregnancy issues such as birth defects, tube defects or extra uterine pregnancy and many more.

When to ask a doctor

If more than a year has passed and you are still having issues, consider consulting a specialist. If the advice you find online and in magazines does not answer your question “What can I do to get pregnant?” a doctor certainly will, and will also help you find the right method or combination of methods for you to get pregnant faster.

    If you have been trying for a year, and you’re still not pregnant, something may be wrong. There are many possible reasons for infertility. Different women have different issues when trying to conceive: obesity, endometriosis, prescription medications, smoking, health problems and other gynecologic disorders. If you haven’t had a gynecological examination lately, I recommend you see your ObGyn to determine the exact cause of your infertility and he may provide you with available fertility treatment. Best of luck!

    It is possible that you may be pregnant. Taking a home pregnancy test can help confirm this matter. Getting checked by your doctor can also be another option for you to determine your condition.

    Having a miscarriage won’t greatly affect your chances of conceiving again, thus; it is already safe for you to conceive again as soon as after your miscarriage. In order for you to conceive soon, it is best that you timely have sex during your ovulation date and fertile period. It is also best that you try taking fertility supplements like Fertibella ConceiveEasy, Vitex and Clomid for you to boost your body’s fertility and induce your ovulation.

    Aside from taking Fertibella ConceiveEasy, you can greatly improve your chances of getting pregnant by regularly tracking your ovulation cycles, increasing your sexual activity during your fertile window which normally occurs 3 to 4 days before your ovulation and by maintaining a healthy weight. I also suggest that you avoid stress, quit unwanted habits and avoid the use of sexual lubricants in order for you to increase your likelihood of conceiving soon.
