Home Remedies for Getting Pregnant

Going old school

When it comes to getting pregnant, some couples are willing to go to the extremes to do what it takes. However, not everybody has the budget or the time for costly fertility treatments like IVF. This leads to more and more couples going about conceiving the old fashioned way, and giving fertility home remedies and old wive’s tales a try. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Read on for some of the most common ones we have found, and be warned: they run the gamut from the wacky to the weird to the wonderful!

Cough syrup for cervical mucus

Many women swear by cough syrup as a home remedy to increase their cervical mucus and thereby increase their chances of getting pregnant. The secret’s in the active ingredient Guaifenesin. This ingredient is what helps to thin mucus in the chest and lungs.

But, here’s the thing: it also thins mucus in OTHER parts of the body as well! So, it’s an option that many women try to thin their cervical mucus to help them get pregnant.

Evening primrose oil

Evening Primrose Oil is a herbal treatment method that many women turn to as a natural way to increase their cervical mucus. Evening Primrose Oil is a great option for women who need cervical mucus help naturally. It can increase the amount of cervical mucus, and it can also help to improve the quality of cervical mucus as well.

Prop it up

It might sound silly, but propping your bottom up with a pillow during and after sex can increase your chances of conceiving. It’s simple gravity, really. You have to position yourself in a way that the sperm will flow towards the egg, and not away from it.

Once you have gravity on your side, your chances of conceiving will increase as well! Prop a pillow underneath your hips during sex, so that the sperm will have a little help getting where they need to go. Keep the pillow underneath for a little while after sex as well, to give those little things a “head start”.

Be as healthy as possible

It’s common sense: the healthier you are, the more likely you are to get pregnant. Try to do whatever you can to improve your chances of getting pregnant. If you are overweight, try to lose some and get to a healthier weight. Eat a healthy, well balanced diet, and exercise as often as possible.

Don’t smoke, don’t drink,and of course, don’t do drugs. Try to avoid stressful situations, and keep things as calm as possible. Do whatever you can to keep everything as cool as possible. This will give you the best chance to get pregnant.
