How To Increase Your Chances Of Conception
If you've been trying to conceive for a couple months, you're probably wondering why it hasn't happened yet. While it's true that unprotected sex increases your chances of conception, it's not the only thing that matters. The following are some of the ways you can make it even more possible to conceive.
You can boost fertility by eating well and exercising daily. Being underweight or overweight can affect fertility. A healthy diet will help you lose weight if you're overweight and gain it if you're underweight. Stress can have an influence on conceiving as well. Exercising daily can reduce stress.Limit your caffeine and alcohol consumption. Women who drink an excessive amount of caffeine or alcohol have lower fertility than those who do not. Smoking can affect the uterus and its acceptance of the egg. For men, smoking can decrease sperm production.
TEMPERATURE AND PLANNED Sex
Some couples do not do well with planned sex because it's too much pressure. However, other couples are okay with it. It's worth giving it a try to see if it works for you because you can increase your chances of conceiving if you plan it just right.
To know when you ovulate, purchase a basal thermometer. Every morning before you get out of bed, take your temperature and record it. There are some helpful apps that you can use to keep track of your temperature. After the first month, you will see your temperature increase anywhere from .4 to 1.0 degrees. It's the day before that jump that you ovulated. The great thing about an app on your phone or tablet is that it will be able to tell you when that shift occurred.
When you have an idea when you're going to ovulate, you can plan to have sex one or two days before you ovulate. Sperm can live up to 72 hours in the body, which makes a day or two before you ovulate an ideal time.
