Help Me Get Pregnant

After spending years taking all the right precautions to make sure you don't get pregnant, the time has come; you want to have a baby! Seems like it should happen right away, and some people do get pregnant almost as soon as they make the decision that the time is right. If you want to be one of the lucky ones who gets pregnant right away, here are some tips for getting pregnant quickly and healthily.

Understanding Ovulation

best way to get pregnant fast is to understand the mechanism of how getting pregnant works, and then take advantage of that knowledge. Every month a woman's ovaries receive a message from her pituitary system to release an egg. The egg's release is called ovulation, and once this happens, the egg travels down the fallopian tubes. This is where fertilization occurs; if the environment and circumstances are right, the sperm penetrates the egg and pregnancy ensues. If you're trying to get pregnant, knowing when this process happens is essential.

Know Your Cycle

Knowing when you are ovulating is essential to maximizing your ability to get pregnant as quickly as you can. Ovulation generally happens right in the middle of your menstrual cycle, so you should know how often you get your period. If you menstruate every 28 days, you probably ovulate around day 14; if your cycle is longer, your ovulation day will be farther into your cycle. If your cycle is somewhat irregular then it makes sense to pay attention to other signs that your body provides.

Many women feel a slight cramping when they ovulate. They also notice a thinning and clearing of their cervical mucus; this is one of the ways your body helps you get pregnant - the thinner mucus helps the sperm get to the egg. If you need more help determining when you are ovulating, you can purchase an ovulation predictor kit. This is an at-home test that uses your urine to let you know when you are most fertile.

The other way to tell when you are ovulating is to take your basal temperature using a basal thermometer. This measures your body's resting temperature, which rises slightly when you are ovulating. Taking your temperature with this special thermometer each morning before you get out of bed and graphing the results will tell you everything you need to know about your cycle; and if you keep track every day of the month, it can even let you know when you're pregnant!

Final Tips

In addition to understanding your cycle, it is important that you are as healthy as possible when you are
trying to get pregnant. Maintain a nutritious diet, exercise regularly but not more than seven hours per week, don't smoke and don't drink. If you're on any medications, check to make sure that they don't interfere with fertility; this information is generally available or online, or you can make a quick call to your physician.

Finally, make sure you're having sex regularly. Two or three times per week is a good rule to follow, and increase your frequency to every day on the week that you're going to ovulate: the few days before, the day of, and the few days after.

A healthy couple under the age of 35 should conceive within a year; if you do not within that amount of time, you may want to check to see if there are medical factors that you are unaware of.
