Few experiences in life are as special, intimate and transformational as pregnancy. Babies are beautiful and always bring joy to their mothers. If you feel your maternal instincts kicking in, there are strategies you can use to get a baby.
Many women think all that’s required to get pregnant is simply to get off contraception and have frequent s*x:This is necessary. However, the process doesn’t always occur in this way. Some couples normally conceive in the first month after getting off contraception. However, others stay for much longer than that.
For a young, healthy couple with no fertility problems and performing well-timed s*x the odds of conceiving a child are at 25% per cycle. This shows that you don’t have much control over when you’re going to get pregnant. Thankfully, there are some strategies which you can use to hasten the process.
Facts about conceiving
Every month, there are 6 days when you’re fertile enough to conceive. 1 to 2 days before ovulation, you’re at your most fertile. A helpful activity that you can perform is to track your cycle and have a firm understanding of when you usually ovulate.
Get your timing correctly
Every month, there are only 6 days when you are fertile enough to conceive a child. These are the 5 days which lead to ovulation and the specific day of ovulation. As such, you can have s*x during these days of the month. Known as the fertile window, this is when you are most likely to conceive. If you find yourself busy during these days, try and have s*x a day or 2 before ovulation. This is when you have the highest chance of conceiving.
Know your days of ovulation
There are some applications which track your periods. One of the extra functions that they provide is telling you about your fertile days. Unfortunately, many of these applications are inaccurate. Instead of relying on them, there are other ways to identify your days of ovulation. You can monitor your cervical mucus. Also, you can take ovulation tests to identify when this reproductive process is commencing. Another method is by taking your basal body temperature. With this method, you can ascertain that ovulation actually occurred. Lastly, the Ava bracelet is a wearable tech device which accurately tells you when your ovulation has begun.
Get off birth control earlier
Interestingly, it is possible for you to get pregnant as soon as you get off birth control. If you use a hormone-based birth control method, it is advisable to get off it much earlier and switching to an alternative type. This is because a hormonal birth control method switches your body such that you will bleed but will not actually have real periods. You will not be following your natural period cycle. Therefore, it is important to get off your contraception early so that you can learn your natural cycle and track it. In this way, you will know exactly when you are ovulating.
