Every woman has at least one good friend who seems to conceive just by saying the word “It’s a boy!” Every woman also has a close friend who desperately tries to conceive but cannot. But no matter how strong the bonds of sisterhood, women seldom discuss an issue as sacred as conception. One couple in six experiences fertility problems serious enough to warrant medical intervention, but they tend to feel ashamed of their difficulties. Men wonder about their virility and potency; women worry about their essential femininity.
Most people don’t think of getting pregnant as more complex than eating cucumbers while holding pebbles in your hands, but it can be! Many women often don’t know their bodies well enough to manage Mother Nature’s cycles. The truth is that the more a couple tries to conceive, the more likely they are to become stressed and frustrated. Before couples visit expensive fertility specialists or pursue other treatments like in vitro fertilization, they should consider giving Mother Nature the time she needs to work out Her own design.
Get a Check-up
When it comes to keeping up with annual health exams, women are less likely than men to go in for regular check-ups. The best time for a check-up is one year before the pregnancy begins (if trying) as it will then allow doctors to make sure everything is A-OK. Most women should have appointments when they hit puberty around aged 13 and not just once after getting married or turning 40. It’s imperative that you make sure you get yourself examined by a professional if that’s what it takes because it often doesn’t take much for some of the things in your body to stop working which may result in complications resulting from the springiness and elasticity that gets lost due to infertility. As health professionals, we understand how important it is for you to know what’s happening with your reproductive system. We can test it with ease thanks to our decade of extensive training. You should never go on a longer than normal trip without making sure your car is fully functional and maintained because otherwise, there might be problems related to finding parts or repairs required as well as unforeseen accidents which could easily tarnish your day without exception! So make sure it is checked and tested before going out on trips!
Manage your stress and anxiety through planning, meditation, exercise and so on… when the rest of your body is much more hospitable to healthy sperm! A woman’s body creates a unique and complex habitat for sperm in her reproductive system (a.k.a. a bio-pool) that can only be maintained within a certain pH range otherwise it will be hostile to sperm which means they won’t be good enough as per our standard which means we can’t make them join into families with other healthy eggs. That being said, here are some ways that you can manage your stress and anxiety naturally: * Meditate. If your partner is not thoroughly committed to being a father/mother, your body can tell. Many specialists suggest that couples struggling to conceive should seek out marriage counseling before exhausting other options because both partners have to be on board with becoming parents and love the idea at least a little bit for the process of making a baby to be successful. Effective communication between a couple goes both ways and encompasses verbal, physical, emotional aspects of human interaction which fosters open and honest discussions about what parenthood means for the couple involved.
Know Your Cycle
Don’t start trying to conceive until you’ve charted your cycle for several months, the point of which is to allow you time to see a specific pattern regarding when you begin ovulating or having your period. If you have a regular period, ovulation can take place in any given month between the 10th and 16th day after this very first day begins. As part of your daily morning routine, it’s important to take your temperature every single day so as to get an idea of when ovulation will occur based on how much more ‘hotter’ than usual it becomes. With ovulation testing strips and an ovulation predictor, you can predict the most fertile days to become a parent and get busy. The over-the-counter devices are easy to use and utilize temperature changes that trigger reactions when hormone levels are indicative of ovulation. A dark positive read is the result of the test’s indicator when your body temperature rises and suggests that ovulation is potentially occurring. By learning how to interpret these devices, you’ll be able to schedule your love making sessions near this time in order to maximize your chances of conceiving together with your partner!
Give those Little Swimmers some Help
A positive attitude can make all the difference in your sexual life and fertility. A deeper penetration (with a sex toy or tongue) gives sperm a healthy head-start on their journey to meet the egg. Try new sexual positions to optimize the depth of the penetration, and have sex two or three times each day during ovulation. Remember, it takes a man’s sperm five to six hours to fully restore their full count after an intercourse, so try to penetrate again later in the day for optimal results. After intercourse, relax for a while and get comfortable on your back by elevating your hips. For added comfort, you can use several pillows. Remember that contracting the muscles around your pelvis can help sperm swim to its destination easier – so do this in conjunction with gravity!
