The following article is a testimony of our reader who wished to stay anonymous.
“Somehow my mother became obsessed with me getting pregnant again. She started talking about what foods I need to consume or what positions are suitable for the same purpose. I won’t say I wasn’t interested about this, but having another baby? – I love kids, but I think two children are enough. When I came back home, I kept thinking about what my mother was telling me about. I felt the need to open up my computer and start researching the topic.
Here are some of the results:
You need to keep your reproductive system healthy and see it as the base for conceiving. If you and your beloved partner are trying for a baby, be prepared to make some changes in your diet. These changes are very simple, because there is no room for an obstacle when something beautiful is about to happen.
Try to avoid acidic foods because the acidity in your cervical mucus could destroy the sperm. Try to intake more alkaline foods as bean sprouts, peas, milk, because they are the ones to increase your chances to get pregnant enough fast.
Check out this list:
If you feel the need of supplements you can take them.
Consult with your doctor about which ones you should take and use them regularly for better results.
Visit your gynecologist whenever you should or feel the need to. He/she should always be there for you and help you in case you need it.
When some women are trying to conceive, they could get emotional and “pushy”.
They always monitor their ovulation, which is really important, and it can happen for them to desire to have sexual intercourse at strange moments. Their husbands probably won’t mind such a thing, but regular sex is 100 times better than catching only the ovulating moments. Try to enjoy it and have some fun!
DIFFERENT SEXUAL POSITIONS
Some people do believe that a particular sexual position increases your chances of conceiving and the most used one is the missionary position. But, maybe you should try something different. Don’t focus just on one. It will definitely make your sex life more exciting and fun.
Pay attention to your biological processes:
- Check your body temperature as one of the most efficient methods
- If your body temperature is higher than normal, then you are ready to go as the chances of conceiving are high
- Don’t forget to keep a menstrual cycle chart.
DON’T SMOKE, DRINK, OR TAKE ILLEGAL MEDICATIONS
According to numerous studies, caffeine is affecting the chances of conceiving in women and sperm mobility in men. You should also try to avoid cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs which could definitely lead to a miscarriage or some abnormalities.
CONTROL YOUR BODY WEIGHT AND EXERCISE
Exercising on a regular basis can increase your chances of getting pregnant. The women who exercise often are more fertile than the lazy ones, and the activities keep their hormones under control. Overweight women often have problems balancing their ovulation. It could be rare and irregular. They also have higher levels of estrogen.
