Track Your Fertility

          Let’s put it simply: if you are not tracking your fertility, and you are just having sex whenever and hoping for the best, you are not doing yourself any favors.

In fact, you are making it much harder to conceive than it has to be. There is a certain method to the madness when it comes to fertility and when it comes to tracking ovulation. The way it works is actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it, so here goes.

First of all,women only have about a 24 hour period during each given month where they are technically able to get pregnant. This is ovulation time, or the time when the egg is released from the fallopian tube and travels down for the possibility of meeting the sperm. After about 24 hours, the egg begins to die. It does not have a very long life span, so it is imperative that couples track their fertile days so that they can plan sex accordingly.

          Otherwise, it’s just a shot in the dark when it comes to fertility.

There are so many ways out there to track fertility, including fertility tracking apps, charting basal body temperature, ovulation predictor kits and other ways such as checking your cervix and paying attention to cervical mucus. With all of the different options out there, there should be no excuse as to why a woman is not tracking her fertility.

Live Your Best Life

This tip is a very broad one, and covers a whole lot of ground, but it is still a very important thing to remember. When you are trying to conceive, you are literally setting things up to grow a whole new life, a whole new person. You want to start that off with the best possible foundation that you can, and you want to be able to give your baby to be the most promising start that you can. This is why living your best life is so important and encompasses so many different things.
For example, living your best life when trying to conceive might mean trying to quit smoking, drinking, or using illegal drugs.

It might mean getting more sleep instead of staying out partying all night.

Living your best life might mean introducing more fruits and vegetables into your diet, and steering clear of the fast food drive thru lane.

Living your best life for you might mean focusing more on your family and home life and less on working so many hours.

You might decide to cut people or things out of your life in order to reduce your stress levels.

There are really so many different aspects of living your best life, and really, trying to conceive means that you need to step back, take inventory of your life, and see where you can improve. This is not only good for trying to conceive and getting pregnant, but for your overall quality of life and well being.

Consider Your Weight

One thing that women don’t usually take into consideration when they are trying to conceive is their weight and how it might be inadvertently affecting their fertility. The truth of the matter is, being overweight or underweight can have detrimental effects on fertility.

This is because weight is directly related to hormone production, and can cause hormone levels to fluctuate in the body. This can cause too many or too little of certain hormones, which can really wreak havoc on fertility.

If you are underweight, talk with your doctor to decide on a plan to get your weight to a healthy level before trying to conceive. If you are overweight, take heart. Experts believe that a small weight loss, only about five to ten pounds, is sometimes all the body needs to reset the metabolism and help balance out hormone levels.

          It’s crazy to think that sometimes five or ten pounds could be the only thing standing in the way of helping a woman get pregnant.

If you have concerns about your weight and its effect on your fertility, make sure to talk with your doctor to come up with a plan that will get you on the right track.

Supplement

Let’s be honest, most of us don’t get the nutrition that we need. Often times we are too busy or just too (gasp!) lazy to eat right. It’s just a fact of life and it’s something that most of us deal with. However, we can help to solve this problem by taking a daily prenatal vitamin.

          Yes, that’s right, taking a prenatal vitamin before you even get pregnant is a great way to fill in any gaps that you might have in your nutrition.

It will assure that your body is getting exactly what it needs to help you be your healthiest and strongest. Taking a prenatal vitamin before conception can also help to protect your unborn baby (when you do get pregnant) from birth defects and other issues like neural tube defects. Not to mention the fact that prenatal vitamins can also simply give you more energy and make you feel better overall.

There are other supplements you can try too, not just prenatal vitamins! One really great option is a fertility blend like ConceiveEasy. These options are great for women who are interested in being healthier and boosting fertility. They are also a great option for women who have expressed an interest in herbal fertility medicine but may not know where to start.

          That’s because fertility blends like ConceiveEasy combine all of the most common and most popular herbal fertility remedies and put them into one easy to take tablet.

All the guesswork is gone and women don’t have to worry about researching which amount of which herbal supplement is best for this or that. All the work is done for them! Fertility blends are also available over the counter and do not require a doctor’s prescription, which is an added bonus since women can obtain them on their own, without having to make a doctor’s appointment and go through all the trouble involved in that. Fertility blends are also all natural, so they are much easier on the body as compared to other forms of fertility medications.

Don’t Stress

We know, we know, this one is much easier said than done, especially when it comes to trying to conceive and getting pregnant. It can be so hard to keep your head in the game when it comes to having a baby, and it’s easy for women to become a little bit obsessive, and they may find that trying to conceive begins to take over their thoughts and daily life. That is normal, but it’s not healthy.

          In fact, women who are super stressed out over trying to conceive and the getting pregnant process are often less likely to get pregnant than women who are able to relax and “let go.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you “shouldn’t care” when it comes to your fertility. Of course you should care. You should continue to do all of the normal things that you are already doing like fertility tracking, planning sex, taking prenatal vitamins and supplements, but remember not to let it take over your life.

Many women report not feeling like their spouse was still on board with their trying to conceive plans when things got too serious, and when it was all about fertile days, which positions to use, and which days were better to have sex. Men often don’t like feeling like they have to “perform” when it comes to having sex at a certain time, and this can often lead to problems in a relationship, which is the last thing you need if you are trying to conceive.

          All things considered, trying to get pregnant is a very stressful time, there is no doubt about that.

exercise helps boost fertility

However, women should work on lowering their stress levels and trying to not let it get the best of them. For some women, exercise seems to be a really great stress reliever, and as an added bonus, it can make you healthier as well. Some women find solace in talking with a counselor, a trusted friend or family member.

Other women find that carving special time out with their partner away from all the “trying to conceive madness” and simply spending time enjoying each other’s company is the way to go. Whatever it is that helps you to keep your stress levels down, is going to be the best thing for you to do in your particular case so that trying to conceive doesn’t get you burnt out.

Know When To Ask For Help

          Women are usually a little bit afraid to go to the doctor and ask for help when it comes to their fertility.

They are usually afraid of what is going to happen and worried about the possibility of bad news. However, it’s not a very good idea for a woman to keep trying to conceive for a long period of time with no success. Doctors can be a great asset to women who are trying to get pregnant and can really help them to pinpoint what their problems might be and come up with some great ways to achieve their goals. When it comes to trying to conceive, there is a simple rule that most doctors use to let women know when it is a good time to seek help with their fertility.

For the most part, doctors recommend that women under age 35 with no prior known health problems try to conceive for one full year before seeing a doctor. This means a year of actively trying, fertility tracking, etc. For women who are already over age 35, doctors recommend that they try to conceive for around six months before seeking help.

          This is because after age 35, women’s fertility sees a dramatic drop, and these women might need fertility help sooner than other women.

This being said, if you are a woman who has a known fertility issue, you might want to see a doctor before you start trying to conceive, just to go over things and make sure that you are doing the right things to have the most success possible. The same goes for women who have a history of fertility problems in their family. These women should also see a doctor when they start trying to conceive, just to ensure the best possible chance of success.
