Trying to get pregnant, how exciting and daunting all at the same time!!
It is important to be patient with the process, as it can often take some time. Approximately 80% of women having regular intercourse will fall pregnant in the first year of trying, however this can be impacted by a number of factors and so try not to get disheartened if it doesn’t happen straight away!
Let’s start with the basics.
For a woman to get pregnant spontaneously (ie. Without IVF or IUI), a man’s sperm must fertilise her egg. Each month a woman will ovulate approximately 14 days prior to her period. Now, if you have a regular cycle this is easy to track, however if your cycle is irregular this can be more difficult.
The key to falling pregnant is tracking your ovulation and having lots and lots of sex around this time!
We will cover how to track your ovulation in a separate post, but for now – here are our top tips on how to get pregnant:
👩❤️💋👨 Have sex, a LOT of it!
🗓 Track your ovulation and ramp up the sex game during this time
🤸♀️ Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise
⚖️ Maintain a normal BMI (being overweight or underweight can impact your fertility)
🚭 Quit the smoking and alcohol consumption
🩺 Check with your Dr if any regular meds influence fertility/pregnancy
💊 Start a folic acid supplement
🩸 Get a blood test to see if you are deficient in any vitamins/minerals and take supplements accordingly
And most importantly, try and enjoy the process! Stress can impact fertility, so remember to try and have some fun too!
