Why Can’t I Get Pregnant When I Time It Right?

Why Can't I Get Pregnant When I Time It Right?

When it comes to conceiving, most of us know that timing is of the utmost importance. After all, there are only a few short days during your cycle when you can possibly get pregnant, so you have to know if and when you are ovulating, and then you have to time sex for that time during your cycle. So, what can you do if you are timing your sex for ovulation, but still not getting pregnant? Read on for some helpful tips! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Tip #1: Have sex before ovulation

If you are currently tracking your ovulation and having sex the day you ovulate, you might want to switch up your plan of attack. Since sperm live longer than the egg, try having sex the day before you are supposed to ovulate, so that the sperm can be “ready and waiting” when the egg is released. This can up your chances of getting pregnant. If you are really feeling ambitious, have sex for two days in a row before you ovulate. This way you maybe you’ll not have to say you can’t get pregnant.

Tip #2: Don’t count on once to do the trick

Also, if you are having sex one time only during your ovulation cycle, you might want to up your game. Having sex once the day before you ovulate can increase your chances of pregnancy, but, having sex every day or every other day during ovulation can increase your chances even more.

Try having sex the day before ovulation, and then every day or every other day for 4-5 days during ovulation. This is a great way to give your body several chances to become pregnant during one ovulation cycle.

Tip #3: Check your guy

If you are ovulating properly, timing your sex right, and having sex on the right days during your cycle, there might be something else standing in your way of getting pregnant. Have your guy visit a doctor and get his sperm checked out.

There are many sperm issues that can make it difficult to get pregnant. If you don’t get your guy’s sperm checked, there is really no way to know if there is a problem or not, so take that into consideration.

Tip #4: Seek expert help

If you have followed all of the above tips and are still not getting pregnant, it might be time to seek professional help and see if there are any underlying problems. It is a good idea to seek help from a fertility expert if you have been trying to conceive for a year with no luck and you are under 35 years of age.

If you are over 35, it is a good idea to seek help after trying for six months with no luck! Keep these things in mind and you will be heading in the right direction towards getting pregnant!
