Things to Help You get Pregnant

You simply cannot have enough help when you’re trying to get pregnant. Without additional knowledge and information, dietary supplements and some helpful gadgets, you might find it difficult to get pregnant in the time scale you’d prefer.

Understanding the Process

The first thing you need to help you get pregnant is an understanding of the processes in your body that affect your fertility. Your menstrual cycle is roughly a month long (normally between 28 and 35 days, but potentially longer or irregular depending on particular health conditions, stress and diet.

You stand the best chance of getting pregnant naturally when you’re consciously trying to conceive within your fertile window: the span of days when the active life of sperm within a woman’s body overlaps with the fertility of the egg released during ovulation. The egg survives for a maximum of 24 hours and sperm can survive for four or five days. Understanding your cycle so you can predict when your fertile window will fall is one of the most important things that can help you get pregnant.

Making a preconception check with your doctor will help identify if there any issues with your cycle – irregularities here can be a useful indicator for other issues that may arise while you try to get pregnant, such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The NHS estimates that as many as one in five women may have this hormone condition that, among things, restricts when you ovulate and makes it harder for you to conceive.

Diet

Another of the things you need to help you get pregnant is an improved diet! Beware promises of a panacea: a catch all solution to all the problems of pregnancy isn’t possible, but some simple tips can really help to boost the chances of conception for most people.

Adding more green vegetables to your diet gives your body a boost in B-complex vitamins and key minerals that go into building healthy eggs and sperm, extending your fertile window and giving you a better chance of conceiving naturally. A good diet can also help to ensure regular and spontaneous ovulations. Again, talking with a doctor or fertility specialist will get you some expert advice you can trust.

Technological Help

Finally, getting some technology on your side can you help you get pregnant. A fertility monitor like OvuSense takes your basal body temperature to provide you with an insight as to where you are within your monthly cycle and provides a prediction of your next fertile window, giving you the advantage you need to get pregnant quicker!
