Steps To Get Pregnant Faster

by TJ

My partner and I have been trying to conceive for about 11 months now, my periods have been coming within 28 and 34 days every month and it has been 11 months since I have been off my birth control pills. What are the best steps we could take to conceive faster? I do not drink or smoke although my partner sometimes drinks and does smoke black and milds. It has been a very emotional and rough 11 months. I need to know what are our best steps to increase our chances of getting pregnant.

Syeps To Get Pregnant Faster

Depending on your age you may want to talk to your doctor and have some preliminary fertility testing done (both you and your partner). I think that after actively trying for 11 months, it is a good idea to check for things like sperm count, sperm motility, hormone levels, blocked fallopian tubes and ovarian reserve.

If everything looks fine, these are the easiest steps any couple who is trying to conceive can follow in order to increase the odds of conceiving naturally:

1. Do A Fertility Cleanse

It is very important to eliminate toxins before pregnancy because these toxins can affect hormone levels, sperm count, sperm motility, ovulation, embryo implantation, and baby development. Both partner will greatly benefit from doing a fertility cleanse before conception.
Lean why doing fertility cleanse is so important.

2. Take Fertility Vitamins

Many fertility issues, like unexplained infertility, irregular periods, hormonal imbalance, poor egg quality and low sperm count, are related to vitamins and minerals deficiency. Simply by supplying the body with the correct missing key nutrients, fertility can be restored in order to achieve conception and a healthy pregnancy.
Learn why most couples need fertility vitamins.

3. Monitor Your Cycle

Couples who monitor their cycle and have sex at the right time of the month, get pregnant faster. You need to know if and when you are ovulating and you need to be diligent about this process. I recommend doing fertility charting by taking your basal body temperature and checking your fertile mucus every day during your monthly cycle. The benefit of doing fertility charting is that you can detect any
problem regarding your ovulation, the length of the luteal phase, etc. If you see a fertility doctor and provide your fertility charts, he or she will be able to help you address your problem more accurately.

I like Ovacue fertility monitor because it detect your hormonal levels in your saliva giving important information about your hormones and your cycle, but most importantly it can tell you as far as 5 to 7 days in advance when you are about to ovulate.

4. Increase Fertile Mucus
If you do not have fertile mucus that looks like egg white when you are about to ovulate, you will not get pregnant. The sperm cannot survive in the acidic environment of your vagina without this type of mucus.

5. Relax
Stress is your number one enemy if you are trying to conceive. Try to find ways to really relax and unwind. There is nothing like listening to a guided meditation specifically designed to help women relax while trying to conceive.
Learn how to decrease stress and increase fertility.

6. Exercise
Yoga is the best type of exercise for women who having difficulty getting pregnant. Yoga helps you relax, increases circulation to the reproductive organs and most importantly it prepares you for pregnancy.

7. Sleeping For Fertility
Women and men who are trying to conceive need to sleep 8-9 hours at night in a dark room away from electromagnetic radiation of TV, radio, digital clocks, cell phones and computers. Keep these items at least 3 feet away from your bed or better put them in another room. The best time to have sex is in the morning and you should go to steep no later than 9:30 PM in order to support your hormones.

8. Having Sex
The missionary position is always the best one to use when trying to conceive. Avoid oral sex because saliva damages the sperm. Also, have sex every other day in order to make sure that the sperm supply is high. After sex remain still on your back for at least 30 minutes.

I hope this helps you.

Well he just turned 26 and I will be 26 soon.
Do you suggest us trying for a little longer while taking some of the herbal vitamins and trying the steps you have given us? Then getting with our doctor?

Getting Pregnant Naturally
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

At 26 you still have time to do a 4 months pre conception period and try to get pregnant on your own. The choice is entirely up to you. If you were over 35, it would be a good idea to talk to a fertility specialist asap, but you still have some time.

My advise is to chart your cycle, this is very very important, in fact you may find that maybe you are just missing the right time.

Make sure you know which your fertile symptoms are and make sure to have sex on the first day you detect fertile cervical mucus, also make sure to have sex the day before ovulation and not the day of ovulation (it may just be too late).
The best time to have sex is 1-2 days before you ovulation provided that you have lots of cervical fertile mucus. If you do not have fertile mucus during ovulation you may not get pregnant.

Learn more about charting your cycle or use a fertility monitor like Ovacue, that tells you 5 days in advance when you are about to ovulate. This fertility monitor is very useful in planning intercourse.

Also, having several months of fertility charting done will help your doctor immensely. Fertility charts may show hormonal issues, poor ovulation, short luteal phase.

When a couple cannot conceive, it is also possible for the male sperm count to be too low. It is possible to test for sperm count at home. This will save you time to know if there is a possible issue with the sperm.

So, taking some time (4 to 6 months) to work on boosting your fertility naturally at your age is a good idea. You might just get pregnant!

Want to get pregnent
by: Swati

I'm 28 yrs old and I am TTC for the last 7-8 month but with no results. My periods are regular after marriage, before they were irregular. I have 28 day cycle. We consulted with a doctor and we were prescribed some tests like semen analysis for my husband and prolactin and TSH for me. Test are normal they have given 3 month course of folic acid with Ova Care tablets. Still no result after 3 months.

Increasing Your Chances Of Conception
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

Consider that it may take a little bit longer than three months to get pregnant. Ovacare tablets contain supplements that can help increase your fertility and support your ovulation, but you need to give your body time to adjust.

Also, make sure that you are timing intercourse accordingly to your most fertile period and that you produce enough fertile cervical mucus. Not having enough good quality fertile mucus prior to ovulation can decrease your fertility. In fact you need to have sex the first day of you fertile mucus and continue until the day before ovulation.

If you don't produce fertile cervical mucus that looks like raw egg white, consider supplementing your diet with FertileCM.

Timing intercourse is key to getting pregnant.

The fertility treatment will do its job, but you need to do the rest.

Consider using Ovacue Fertility Monitor to detect your most fertile days and get pregnant faster. Ovacue is a saliva-based electronic fertility monitor designed specifically for trying-to-conceive couples. With this fertility monitor, you can predict your ovulation date up to seven days in advance giving you more opportunities to conceive each month. I recommend Ovacue because it's very precise and has been clinically proven to be 98.3% accurate in monitoring ovulation in studies sponsored by the National Institute of Health.

How to get pregnant
by: Anonymous

I am 22 years and he is 29 and we have been trying to get pregnant for five months know, and we meet one weekend a month as we are distance because of work but we are so eager to have a baby boy.

What can we do during that weekend because we cant wait....

Having Sex Only One Weekend a Month to Get Pregnant

Make sure you are ovulating that weekend, otherwise you will not be able to achieve pregnancy. If you can schedule the week-end chose the one you know you might be ovulating

To help you plan for this, use Ovace.

Ovacue is a very accurate fertility monitor that gives couples as much as 7 days advance notice about ovulation. This will help you a lot plan your weekends and your pregnancy.

Trying to fall pregnant
by: jennifer

I am 23 and my husband is 25 we have been together for 9 years and never used anything to prevent pregnancy and I am still not pregnant. We have also been trying for 1 year now to fall pregante but no results what can we do.


Hi Jennifer,

Even though you and your husband are very young, after TTC actively for one year and you are not pregnant yet, it would be a good idea to talk to you family doctor and ask for a fertility check up, just to be on the safe side.

Your doctor will check your hormonal levels and may request an ultrasound to check your reproductive organs. Your husband should do a sperm analysis to see the sperm count, motility, morphology, and other important parameters.

You can support your conception attempt by eating a very healthy diet, avoiding alcohol, smoking and junk foods. Taking fertility vitamins, like FertilAid, will also help you have a healthy cycle and your husband make healthy sperm.

You should also chart your cycle by taking your Basal Body Temperature. I would recommend using iBasal thermometer. This thermometer helps you detect your most fertile days, it is so easy to use.
You need to know if you are ovulating and when in order to maximize your chances of conception. Most couples have no real issues and often find that doing fertility charting to pin point ovulation is what they needed in order to achieve pregnancy.

Many blessings!

I have been ttc for about 10 months and the process is so frustrating. I had a fibroid removed last year in April and 3 months later the obgyn gave me a go ahead.

At first mi husband and I were so eager to have the baby that the first two months we had sex daily except when I was on periods. The third month and fourth we timed the ovulation window but still nothing.

The fifth month our sex life greatly dropped but we managed at least ones a week. By the 9th month I visited my obgyn again who sent me for a hsg test, that was the craziest pain I have ever endured all my life, good thing is that both my fallopian tubes are open, so I am now on ovacare tabs, I have been through so much mental torture the past 6 months that I dont know what else to do.

Please advise.


Hi Laura,

Boy I know that feeling! I have been there, too and with us countless women. At this time my best advise to you is to go back to enjoy your life and be with your husband like you used to.

I truly think your problem is not physical but emotional. For this I have found that relaxation works best.

You can do many things, these 2 are really important:

Take up fertility yoga.

Listen to Circle & Bloom Mind-Body Program.

Yoga helps increase your fertility by stimulating blood flow to your reproductive organs.

Cycle and blood is an amazing way to connect to your body, relax and hopefully get pregnant. When stress is a factor in TTC, this program always helps women feel more relaxed, still in control of their fertility, but much less stressed out.

Many women (surprising really a lot), have gotten pregnant with this method. That's why may fertility specialists and even IVF centers recommend them to their patients. Stress is a very big factor in inhibiting ovulation and causing hormonal imbalance, even in women who are fine. This is often called unexplained infertility.

My advise is to give it a try, I know it will work for you, too! And when it does, please let me know.

To get pregnant as early as possible is to begin charting your cycle by using OvaCue Fertility Monitor and taking your basal body temperature (BBT) and other fertility signs like cervical position and fertile cervical mucus.
