Stop using contraceptives

Firstly, if you want to get pregnant you should stop using contraceptives. This seems obvious enough. But since many chemical contraceptive options take a long time to leave your system, cease their use as soon as you begin thinking TTC is in your near future. After using certain birth control methods you body needs a longer time to readjust, so the sooner you stop using them, the closer you are to having a baby.

Evaluate your health

It is easier to conceive when you are in general good health. So it is best if you discuss with your doctor before trying to have a baby to see if you are healthy enough to conceive.

Track your ovulation

Before you get down to business, you should know your ovulation day. Use a calendar to track when your period starts each month or use ovulation tests. You are most fertile for a few days halfway through your menstrual cycle.

Have sex

After going through all of the methods above you should start having unprotected intercourse as often as you can. 3 times a week works well, to give your partner’s sperm enough time to regenerate itself between times.

Avoid certain foods or drinks

Some substances will harm your chances of having a baby and others will even harm the fetus, thus it is very important to take care of your nourishment several months before trying for a baby. You should:

Avoid any alcoholic beverage for up to two months prior to conception.
Do not smoke or use drugs. Nicotine or illegal drugs will lower your chances of getting pregnant, and most importantly, can severely harm the fetus. So it is of an utmost importance not to smoke or use drugs before and during the pregnancy.
Do not drink coffee excessively. Women who consume more than three cups of coffee a day are less likely to get pregnant in comparison to those who drink less than two cups.
Avoid meat containing nitrates – raw fish, unpasteurized cheese or meat that contains nitrates as well as any undercooked meal may lead to food poisoning, which will reduce your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

In short, you have a multitude of ways that will answer your burning question, “How do I pregnant?” Follow these tips for your best chances at conceiving a baby before you know it.
