Fertility Tips To Get Pregnant!

We spend most of our teenage and adolescent lives trying not to get pregnant and then when the time comes to start a family there are some things we should know to enhance your fertility!

Fertility awareness in tracking your cycle

Understanding your cycle is important so that you can establish the optimum time to conceive and notice any irregularities that can hamper you in getting pregnant, be it stress, eating disorders, over-exercising, medication issues, and hormonal imbalance.

You're most likely to get pregnant on the day you ovulate and the three to five days beforehand. You can also learn how to monitor and track your cervical mucus and basal temperature.

Environmental and lifestyle factors when trying to conceive

Environmental and lifestyle factors can affect your fertility and ability to conceive excessive drinking, Smoking, Exercising, Weight issues, Hormones, Work-Life Balance, Poor Sleep Hygiene

Taking precautions and avoiding sexual transmitted diseases that can cause inflammatory disease, and silently effect your ability to conceive.

Age matters!
Did you know that in your twenties the majority of your eggs are normal!

In your thirties, there is a 20% chance of success in becoming pregnant.

Studies have shown that the average age of 29 years old's became pregnant within three to twelve months.

Once you hit your forties, your egg quality diminishes, there is a 5% chance in becoming pregnant, and there is a high risk in miscarrying and chromosomal abnormalities.

Your Fertility window ends five to ten years before menopause and the average age is 51.

Age and Timing - Rule of thumb is if you are under 35, trying for twelve months or are over 35 and trying for six months seeks professional help. Fertility success drop rapidly from age 35.

Fertility Supplements
As soon as you decide to have a baby, it is important to start taking Folic acid. The dosage you need will be based on your health along with any other medication you may be on. Best to check with your health care provider on the best dosage for you along with taking a multivitamin which has been shown clinically to reduce the chances of miscarriage

Alcohol / Caffeine consumption:
Best to cut out alcohol altogether when you're trying to get pregnant as most women don't know they're pregnant for the first few weeks and alcohol can be harmful to a growing baby within. Best to limit coffee/caffeine intake too as it can impact your ability in becoming pregnant and may lead to miscarriage.

Stress Less
Unexpected or dramatic life events can lead to stress which may interfere with ovulation and may take longer to conceive. Even the stress in trying to become pregnant can impact how long it takes to conceive, especially if there is too much cortisol in the body!If stress levels are high, consider going for some counselling and learning some relaxation techniques and hypnosis to relax and become pregnant.

Time out!
Sometimes we need some quality time out and personal space to recalibrate and focus on what makes us happy.
