If you want to get pregnant, you might be wondering what you can do to improve your chances. For some women, simply waiting around to get lucky is not good enough.

Today we are going to go over a few simple ways that you can improve your chances of getting pregnant. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Body ready

Getting your body and mind ready to get pregnant is the first step to having a baby. By working to get your body in the best condition to grow a baby, you will be setting the stage for a healthy pregnancy. The most important things you can do for your body are to stop smoking, don’t use illegal drugs, and to abstain from using alcohol while you are trying to conceive. All of those things can keep you from getting pregnant, so it is important that you cut them out of your life while you are trying to have a baby. Also, eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise can really go a long way in helping your body to be able to get pregnant. In short, anything you can do to prepare your body for having a baby is a great idea.

Chart your cycle

Charting your cycles is one of the best ways to help in your journey to conceive. There are only a few days each month when a woman can get pregnant, so by knowing when those days are, you can make sure to have sex on those days. This can give you a head start on getting pregnant, since you will know when is the right time to have sex in order to get pregnant. Charting your cycles isn’t complicated, although it does take some getting used to. Once you get the hang of it, however, you will find that it is easy and you might even start to know when you are ovulating without using your chart, just by knowing what to look for. There are tons of ways to chart your cycles, including basal body temperature, and just using your body’s own signals. There are also a ton of online tools that you can use to help you chart your temperature.

Use supplements

There are a ton of over the counter vitamins, herbal supplements and fertility aids that are marketed to help you get pregnant naturally. These “fertility blends” are made from a combination of natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements and more that are proven to be good at helping pregnancy occur. A lot of women like these sorts of fertility blends since they are natural, available over the counter, do not require a prescription and are much more affordable than other fertility drugs that you would get at a doctor’s office. Your doctor can help you to choose one or give you advice on some of them if you need it.

These are three easy tips that can help you to improve your chances of getting pregnant. If you are just beginning in your journey to get pregnant, these can be great options for you. These are the basic building blocks for a healthy pregnancy, so if you take care of these items first, you should be confident that you are laying a good foundation for pregnancy to occur.

    I am 26 yrs. Old and I believe I am infertile, but my fiance insist that I’m not because I was pregnant once before when I was 20 yrs old only I made a decision to have an abortion which I regret deeply ecspecially since I am having a hard time concieving and after that I took the plan B. Pills a coulple times but in the past 2 years we have been trying to concieve only my period is very irregular so accurately timing ovulation is hard I’ve visited my doctor who has been my OB for the past 8 years and she always assures me nothing is wrong but the result of not getting pregnant make me feel otherwise I am a daycare provider and have helped raise many children and I am becoming overwhelmed and depressed at the thought of not being able to have my own I don’t know what direction I should go in because finances liimit my options

      Your feelings are very common amongst women who experience difficulty conceiving. Depression and stress can actually affect your fertility and disrupt your regular ovulation, so it is important to address and treat it to increase your chances of getting pregnant. The good news is that if you have conceived in the past, then you can almost certainly get pregnant again. The first thing you should do is regulate your cycles and identify your time of ovulation. FertiBella 2-Month Starter Kit + 20 Free Ovulation Tests can help you to achieve both. I recommend you start taking an ovulation test at day 7 and continue testing each day for the entire month. This will first establish whether you are in fact successfully ovulating and help you to time intercourse around your peak fertile days.

      Try not to let your feelings overwhelm you. Instead get the support you need from a friend or professional. Find ways to share your feelings instead of holding them inside. Sharing your feelings can help you feel less alone and allow you to overcome a greater spiral of depression that can result from protracted infertility.

      I would start by recommending you learn more about the Fertility Awareness Method. It will reveal to you many signs that your body gives off each month that tell you exactly when you are ovulating. Many women have an “a-ha” moment after learning about these signs and are simply amazed that they’ve never been taught to look for these signs before. After a cycle or two, you’ll become very familiar with identifying these monthly signs of peak fertility. Combining the Fertility Awareness Method with the use of OPKs can be one of the best fertility aids for women, and you will quickly discover a newfound confidence in your body and your fertility.

      FertiBella is intended to be taken every day. Daily use helps to restore your regular cycles and promote ovulation, while increasing production of your fertile quality cervical mucus and thickening your endometrial lining. Although there is no need to time your use of FertiBella, you do need to identify your peak fertile days, so you and your partner can time lovemaking around ovulation.

      During your time of ovulation, your egg is able to be fertilized for about 12-24 hours. But since your partner’s sperm can survive inside your body for 3-5 days, your total fertile time can be up to 5-7 days. I strongly encourage you to read about the Fertility Awareness Method and combine that with using an ovulation predictor kit to help you determine your time of ovulation. When used correctly, you’ll have a 90% chance to successfully target your best times to get pregnant. Good luck and baby dust to you!

      While many women see results with FertiBella in the very first month, each individual’s reproductive cycles are unique. There are a total of 12 monthly blends of FertiBella, to be taken in chronological order. Each month contains a unique pharmaceutical grade blend scientifically formulated to boost your body’s natural fertility and increase your chances to get pregnant quicker and easier.

      Since you’ve established that your husband’s sperm count is normal and you are both otherwise healthy, I would strongly encourage you to turn your focus to timing and frequency of intercourse around ovulation. We often find these two things to be the most commonly overlooked obstacles in trying to conceive. You should use an ovulation predictor kit or the Fertility Awareness Method to confirm your peak fertile days and be sure you are timing intercourse everyday around these days. If you do this, I am confident that you will experience success.

      I’m sorry to hear of your loss. If you’ve received one or more shots of methotrexate, your doctor has most likely recommended you stop taking prenatal vitamins, since folic acid reduces the efficacy of methotrexate. However, after your bhCG levels go to zero, you should resume taking a prenatal vitamin to increase your folic acid levels.

      The next logical step would be to focus on stimulating ovulation, and FertiBella can be highly effective in your situation. The good news is that your risk of another ectopic pregnancy is fairly low, so your chances of an intrauterine pregnancy should be excellent after ovulation induction.

    My husband and I have been ttc for almost a year now and I took clomid and procheive for 3 months and few months back and they didn’t work. I have PCOS and that’s hard enough to deal with. I’ve been regular for the past few months but I’m now 10 days late. I took 2 hpt yesterday and they both came back negative. I have 2 children already but they’re from my previous marriage and my husband and I want one of our own. I had mirana a couple of years ago but had it removed and I’ve had quite a few miscarriages. What could be causing all of this, since my dr never seems to be able to answer my questions, and could fertibella help us? Please help
