Tips to Get Pregnant

Getting pregnant isn’t always the smooth ride you want it to be: as a natural process there are all sorts of bumps in the road that can cause problems for you, from health conditions, dietary issues or simple bad luck. Today, OvuSense is bringing you some tips to help you get pregnant and sidestep some of the elements of chance that can add stress to your journey.

Consult the Experts

When you decide to get pregnant it makes sense to make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor can give you some advice about the issues you’re likely to face, check for fertility issues if you haven’t already looked into them, and make sure you’re in good physical shape for conceiving and then carrying a child.

Talking to a doctor from day one means they will be ready to plug you into the system of support for expecting parents when you do get pregnant, from ante-natal classes and hospital choices, to clinics to check on the health of your new baby when it’s born!

Become an Expert

If you’re trying to get pregnant you need to understand your own fertility: when in your cycle you stand the best chance of getting pregnant, and when that window is simply closed. It helps you to conceive successfully, and it’s never a bad thing to understand your body better, regardless of the purpose.

OvuSense tracks the progesterone cycle in your body to predict when you will ovulate and is clinically proven to be correct 96% of the time. Getting this information 24 hours ahead of time lets you take more control of the process and know that you’re trying to conceive at the best possible time for success.

Take Care of Yourself

There are all sorts of benefits to taking your health in hand when you decide to get pregnant: as well as increasing your fertility and your chances at actually getting pregnant, they also make carrying a baby less stressful and uncomfortable and give you the best chance of delivering a healthy baby while also minimising your own health risks.

The most important things to do are to cut down on alcohol and cut out cigarettes altogether. These both have a depressive effect on your fertility especially for men, and it can take around three months for your system to return to normal after quitting so starting on this as soon as possible is an important move.

Diet is important for two reasons: hitting a healthy weight is important to minimise risks during pregnancy. Being underweight is as problematic as being overweight here, so speak to your doctor about what you should be aiming for to you and your baby the best chance.

Secondly, there are some foods you are going to want to make sure are built into your diet to help your fertility and pregnancy prospects – either as foods or supplements. Folic acid is important from pre-conception right through your pregnancy, so you’ll want to start this without delay.

Other important nutrients when you’re getting pregnant are Zinc, and Vitamins B,C and D. Ensure you’re eating a balanced, healthy diet informed by expert medical advice and you should have everything you need to give you the best chance to get pregnant quickly and successfully.
