Ready to Be a Mom? 3 Things Nobody Told Me About My Fertility

Do you want to have a baby? It's time to learn all about what fertility is and what you need to do to successfully get pregnant.

What is fertility?

The concept is defined as the natural capability of producing offspring and it depends on various important factors, such as nutrition, lifestyle, medical problems and even emotions and timing. The hormonal cycles determine the most fertile period for a woman and the most virile period for a man, and if the timing is perfect, a pregnancy occurs. Of course, there are many other relevant factors which can influence pregnancy. Age is particularly crucial, as well as both partners’ health. Physical condition, stress and fatigue may also give you a hard time when trying to conceive.

How do you know when peak fertility occurs?

This is an issue that concerns both the man and the woman. Even if men produce sperm all month long, there are certain periods when the sperm quality lowers. It is thought to be a matter of their internal cycle, but if intercourse happens during this period, pregnancy is unlikely to occur.

As far as women are concerned, they need to be sure about their ovulation period, which is the most fertile period of the month. Ovulation is specific to each woman, and it also varies from cycle to cycle. Once the egg is released from the ovary, it can only be fertilized within 48 hours. On the other hand, sperm only survives inside the uterus up to three or four days. Taking these details into account, the couple can figure out when it is the right time to conceive.

Pregnancy isn’t happening. What should I do?

No matter how hard you try, pregnancy tests keep turning negative. It is best not to panic and to try to maximize your chances and eliminate all the negative factors. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here!

First of all, eliminate everything that might cause stress and anxiety. Try to relax and think positively. If you want to boost your chances, change your lifestyle and live healthier. Get to know your body well and involve your partner more. You both need to get well informed about getting pregnant. Keep in mind that this is a “game for two”.

Make sure there is nothing on your medical history that may cause problems concerning conception. Although it might just be a timing issue, a lot of couples discover that they have a fertility problem. If this is the case, it is advisable that you seek medical advice, and it is more likely that you need specific treatment. Some of the treatments are simpler and refer to either drugs meant to establish the hormonal balance or surgery to deal with blocked fallopian tubes, genetic defects, cysts, endometriosis, fibroids, etc. The more advanced fertility treatments and, of course, the more expensive ones, involve:

artificial insemination with collected sperm from the partner;
artificial insemination with sperm from a donor;
in vitro fertilization

All these treatments need time and sometimes lead to disappointment, anger, frustration and even despair. It is very important that the two partners support each-other, so that they can cope with their fertility problems and finally be able to have a baby.

    When you are trying to conceive, it is important for you to identify your dates of ovulation. This can be done with an ovulation calendar, an ovulation calculator, or with an ovulation prediction kit (OPK). All of these can help you determine the days when you will be the most fertile, which is a powerful tool for any woman wanting to get pregnant. Tracking your cycle using a calendar, taking note of your symptoms and cervical mucus characteristics, will also help you understand your body. While each of these indicators alone do not help to predict ovulation, when they are used together, they can give you a greater chance for determining when you are most likely to conceive.

    Getting pregnant again may not be as easy as the
    first time. While there are no hard-and-fast figures, most cases of secondary
    infertility stem from the female half of the equation. The most common glitch? Aging
    eggs. Women are born with a finite number of eggs, which can suffer chromosomal
    damage over time. A defective egg is less likely to be fertilized or, if it is,
    to result in a viable embryo. This explains why a woman’s fertility starts to
    dip noticeably when she hits 30, taking a plunge after 35.

    There are other over the counter medications available that can increase your fertility, like Ovulex and Maca, which are also all natural fertility supplements. But even if these medications are nonprescription, it is still recommended that you consult your doctor before taking any of them. Your doctor will help you identify which over the counter medication will be appropriate for you. It would also be a good opportunity for you to get checked for any fertility issues, and for you to discuss your concerns about conceiving.

     A woman’s body needs to take some time after being on birth control to go back to its normal hormone production. Some women take up to more than a year to conceive after getting off birth control. If you are concerned, you may want to visit a fertility specialist in order to determine if there is any underlying causes like any asymptomatic diseases and infections that can hinder your plans of conceiving.
