Having a baby, or wanting to have a baby is a very good idea. Just make sure you are ready for it, mentally. The chances of you getting pregnant are very excellent. To put it statistically, within one year of trying to conceive regularly, about 85% of the couples hit success. Unfortunately after one year of trying to conceive they are labeled as infertile.
Around 22% couples get pregnant within the first month of copulation. Even if pregnancy does not happen for you right away, it might just take some time. So there is nothing for you to worry about. The best thing is research and understand some tips that can be helpful in ensuring your pregnancy.
Have the Medical Procedures Carried Out
Before trying to conceive or spending a year doing so, it is best to get some regular fertility tests done to understand the nature and success rate of you conceiving as a couple. Have medical procedures done for your heart and brain to see if everything is normal and functioning. In addition to that also have a blood test done. During the physical examination make sure there are no tumors or cysts around the pelvic area. It is important for you to be “clean.”
Sex is Best During Ovulation
Let’s face it; no pregnancy will occur if the sperm does not find an egg to fertilize, and this will only happen during the time when a woman is ovulating. This happens usually in the middle two weeks of the month or between the last menstrual cycle and the next. You shouldn’t; however have sex too frequently during ovulation because men need to build up their sperm count, which takes a little while.
Importance of Male Ejaculation
It is important for males to ejaculate once every 2 to 3 days in a month. This is because they need to ensure a healthy sperm count for pregnancy. And releasing them is the best way because it allows the fresh sperm to swim up and more to be born. As such it is important for men to either ejaculate through personal masturbation or that with his partner.
Having a Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle will increase your chances of getting pregnant. The healthier your lifestyle, diet, and habits, the better it will be for your reproductive life.
In addition to that a healthy lifestyle will also help you ensure a better quality for your offspring. Eat healthy food that is fibrous, full of vitamins and nutrients because this will help you stay active and healthy.
Stress is a mood killer, and in this case it will affect your pregnancy as well. Stress will always interfere with your reproductive abilities and cause a lot of failure. Stress can cause women to stop menstruating and cause bad quality of sperms for men. As such it is important for you to stay as stress free as possible.
Sex Positions and Comfort
Sex is the most important in trying to conceive because let’s understand the common fact that a woman cannot get pregnant without sex. Avoid lubricants at all costs because they can interfere with the sperms and the male’s ejaculation during sex. In addition to that it is best to have sex in the missionary position because it will ensure pregnancy the most. Take your time in bed and be fully ready for sex before it actually happens.
Make sure that you wife is very lubricated and her vagina is opened enough to not cause her pain during penetration. Try elevating her hips so that it is easier for the sperms to travel the distance to the egg. After sex is over it is a good idea to place a pillow under the hips. Although there is no evidence that this helps in conception, there is no harm at all. It prevents any leakage of sperm.
Be Patient in Bed and Love Your Partner
Just because you are trying to get pregnant does not mean sex is any different. It is still important for you to be very loving and affectionate to each other and share all your feelings. For a lot of couples having trying to conceive for a long while brings in sexual tensions because sex tends to get very mechanical. This perhaps is the problem, because if sex becomes mechanical then it is not sex, it is a job, some work. Sex needs to stay hot, romantic, and very passionate activity between the two people who are deeply in love with each other.
No Smoking, Alcohol, or Drugs
These are all mood killers and pregnancy stoppers. They affect your health, your wealth and in this case the chances of pregnancy. It is recommended that a couple stops using all of the three about 3 months before they plan to start conceiving. This would give the body enough time to adjust and clean out the impurities from all the systems. As such when you do start conceiving, you will have relatively safe, clean, and healthy bodies.
Exercise is very important because it will help you increase your stamina for sexual activities, as such you will not have problems having sex repeatedly in one night. In addition to that it will keep you healthy and fit. Aerobic exercises are quite effective and beneficial because they improve your cardiac health and help you have a better quality of breathing. In addition to that they also increase the blood flow in the body, which is necessary and helpful during copulation.
Getting pregnant is not the easiest job; however it sure is not the hardest one either. You just have to make sure to do a few things right and the most important of all is to never let sex become mechanical. Always keep it romantic and loving because that is what will ultimately help you hit the right button for pregnancy.
