Know when you ovulate

Knowing when you are ovulating is a very important part to getting pregnant. If you know when you are ovulating, you will know when to have sex and get pregnant, and not just keep trying and trying with no success. You can get an over the counter ovulation prediction kit at your local drugstore and they are very inexpensive. This way you will know when you are at the right time to conceive.

Have sex before you ovulate

Since sperm lives longer than your egg, you should make sure the sperm are ready and waiting when the egg releases. This is the best way to make sure that the sperm and egg meet at the optimal time. In order to do this, you should have sex one to two days before you ovulate, to give the sperm a head start. Of course, in order to do this, you are going to have to know when you ovulate, so the above mentioned ovulation predictor kit can be very handy.

No lubricant

Lubricants can kill sperm. This is true whether or not they are chemical based or water soluble. Even popular brands such as KY or Astroglide can kill sperm. If you are trying to get pregnant, it is important to use your body’s natural lubrication if at all possible. If you can’t do that, try to use warm water or something else that will not cause any harm to sperm.

Be healthy

Being healthy includes seeing a doctor to discuss possible issues that you might have becoming pregnant. It also includes eating a well balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and taking a prenatal vitamin. You should also make sure not to smoke or be around secondhand smoke, and no drinking or using any type of drug. Also make sure you are active, getting enough exercise and maintaining a healthy weight. All of these things will make it easier for you to become pregnant.

Sexual positions

There is some controversy abounding about whether or not positions matter when trying to conceive, but many people swear that missionary is the best position for making babies, since it helps the sperm get closer to the uterus. Also, placing a pillow beneath you to tilt your cervix during sex can help as well. Some people also swear by having a man drink coffee prior to sex.

The thought is that it “amps up” the sperm, allowing them to make their journey faster and get to the egg safely. It sounds crazy, but who knows if it works? Do a quick web search to find a ton of old wives tales on how to speed up conception. Some of them sound crazy, but who knows, they might be fun to try!
