What’s the Easiest Way to Get Pregnant?
Is There An Easiest Way To Get Pregnant?
You can’t wait to welcome a new bundle of joy into the world. You’re eager to start your new family, or extend the one you already have. Nine months is long enough of a wait, so you’re looking for the easiest way to get pregnant.
Here are some tips to help make it a little bit easier for you and your partner to conceive.
Have Sex Often – And at the Right Time
Experts say that having every day is the quickest and easiest way to get pregnant. But it’s not always easy to squeeze in that love making session each day.
If you can’t have sex daily, aim for every other day. And go the extra mile during ovulation. This is the time when you’re most fertile.
Experts recommend having sex several times during ovulation, and to start five days before you expect to ovulate. If your partner has a healthy sperm count, you can aim to have sex every day. But every other day is still more than adequate.
Know Your Cycle
Knowing when you’re ovulating (or about to ovulate) can be tricky.
The average woman ovulates once per month, but if you have certain health conditions (like PCOS), you may not ovulate at all. And you may not be menstruating either.
If you have a health condition that’s affecting your monthly cycle, you’ll need to get that under control first. Once your cycle returns to normal, you can work on getting pregnant.
If your cycles are already normal, there are a few ways you can track ovulation:
- Track your basal body temperature. To do this, you’ll need a basal thermometer. Each morning, take your temperature before you even sit up in bed. A slight increase in temperature is an indication that you’re ovulating.
- Use an ovulation predictor kit. These measure the amount of LH in your urine (levels of this hormone spike during ovulation) to help you determine when you’re ovulating.
- Check your cervical mucous. When you’re ovulating, your cervical mucous becomes thin, slippery and clear (or white in some cases).
For most women, ovulation occurs 14 days before they get their period.
Knowing your cycle and being able to predict when you’ll ovulate is one of the easy ways to get pregnant.
Boost Fertility with Herbs and Supplements
One natural and easy way to boost fertility is to use herbs and supplements. Eastern medicine, particularly Chinese medicine, has perfected the art of using herbs and other natural therapies to help treat fertility issues.
Even if you and your partner are healthy and should be able to conceive easily, you can use these herbs to boost your chances and hasten the process.
Certain herbs can be paired together to restore the endocrine system’s natural balance. Organ and Yin or Yang deficiencies can be treated using special tonics and supplements.
Pregnancy Miracle goes into great detail about how to use Chinese herbs to balance out deficiencies, blockages and stagnation. I can’t go into great detail about the treatment protocols, but I can share some of the herbs that are recommended:
- Asparagus root: Nourishes the Yin of the lung and kidney.
- Solomon’s Seal root: Used to strengthen the kidney, liver and blood essence.
- Chaste tree berry: Helps the body produce more LH, while minimizing the release of FSH.
- Wild Yam: Tones the reproductive Yang and Qi.
- Ginseng root: Used to boost immunity, strengthen Qi, and improve low sperm count and testosterone levels.
- Safflower: Treats amenorrhea and unblocks menstruation.
- Blue cohosh root: Increases estrogen levels and warms up the uterus.
- Red peony: Clears heat and invigorates the blood. Helps treat endometriosis.
As far as alternative therapies go, Chinese herbal medicine has been a trusted source for the treatment of infertility issues for centuries. If you’re looking for an easy way to get pregnant, try adding one (or a few) of these herbs into your daily routine.
Just make sure that you consult with your doctor before starting any herbal therapy.
Try Different Positions
You’ve probably heard rumors that certain sex positions increase your chances of getting pregnant. There’s really no solid scientific evidence to prove this – but that’s only because we really haven’t studied it.
Researchers did an MRI to scan a certain lucky couple while they were having sex. They found that “doggy style” and missionary position allowed the tip of the penis to reach the recesses of the cervix and vaginal walls.
Other positions may be just as good when it comes to getting the sperm right next to the cervix, so go ahead and experiment with different positions. It certainly won’t hurt, and will make your love-making session even more enjoyable.
And just to set the record straight – you, as a woman, don’t have to have an orgasm to conceive. Contrary to popular belief, there’s no evidence that suggests women who have an orgasm are more likely to get pregnant.
You’ve probably also heard that laying down after sex will help improve your chances of getting pregnant. This may or may not be true. It won’t hurt your chances if you lay down for 10-15 minutes after. The semen is more likely to stay in your vagina if you lay down instead of standing up right away.
These methods are some of the easiest ways to get pregnant. Timing really is the most important thing, but keep in mind that only 15-25% of couples will get pregnant after the first try. It can take up to a year to conceive, so have fun and try out different methods to make your baby-making adventure a memorable one.
