Check out the 5 ways you can increase your chances of getting pregnant, fast!

1. Get a preconception checkup

Before you officially start trying, get a checkup. Talk to your doctor about prenatal vitamins that hold folic acid, which helps protect against some birth defects, such as spina bifida.

Folic acid works through the early stages of fertility, so that’s why it’s essential to make sure you’re getting enough folic acid even before you get pregnant.

Any underlying medical condition you have must be placed under check before you can safely become pregnant. Your body needs to be in tip-top condition before you even think of trying for a baby.

2. Understand your cycle

Understanding your menstrual cycle helps you know when you’re most fertile. Ovulation is the best time to get pregnant and should be the time to focus on having sex. It helps to become aware of the signs of ovulation, such as a change in your cervical mucus. It usually becomes thin and slippery when you are most fertile. Some women may also feel a one-sided pang of pain.

Ovulation forecast materials can also help you foretell the best time to get pregnant. Not only can they help assure you that you are ovulating if you are having infrequent intercourse, this tells you when to have it to increase your chances of getting pregnant.

There was once a time women were told that they had to stop using birth control to try to get pregnant but that is no longer true. You can start trying to conceive right after you stop birth control. What you should keep in mind is that you could get pregnant before your period, so tracking ovulation may be difficult, and it might be harder to figure out your due date.

3. Quit smoking

Studies reveal that women who smoke take longer to get pregnant and have an increased risk of infertility. Smoking also dramatically increases the risks of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy and complications during pregnancy, so it’s best to quit now. Women who smoke marijuana should also put an end to it. The effects of marijuana aren’t fully understood yet and using it during pregnancy has been linked to lower birth weights and developmental problems.

Both tobacco and marijuana are a big NO Fathers to be, too, since they can reduce sperm quality. It’s also important to note that a woman’s exposure to second-hand smoke is considered to be just as detrimental to her fertility as if she smoked herself so make sure you check yourself and the others around you too.

4. Boost your vitamin and mineral intake

Now’s the time to start taking a multivitamin, if you don’t already. Not only do you need folic acid to prevent neural tube, heart and limb defects, which can form in the first few weeks of pregnancy, but studies have also revealed that women who are iron defective may experience poor egg quality and even stop ovulating.

A vitamin B12 deficiency can also result in irregular ovulation, and a vitamin D deficiency can interfere with hormone balance. Vitamin C can increase hormone levels, selenium is important, as it helps protect the egg and sperm from free-radical damage.

5. Don’t do too much

Having sxx daily even during ovulation will not significantly increase your chances of getting pregnant. Generally, every other night around the time of ovulation helps increase your chance of getting pregnant.

Sperm has a lifespan of 5 days inside your body. The best advice is to have sxx constantly, when you’re ovulating, and when you’re not.
