This is one of a number of articles on this site designed to give wannabe moms as much assistance as possible in a bid to help them get pregnant
Many women try to plan their sex around their menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, many women who are trying to get pregnant are doing it completely wrong.
This article will focus the mind and provide tips on when best time to conceive is………….
To get pregnant quickly, you really need to take this part of your family planning very seriously. If you don’t take this seriously, then you can actually do great harm to your chances of ever falling pregnant.
You don’t ovulate on the 14th day of my menstrual cycle
It is commonly thought that women ovulate on the 14th day of their menstrual cycle. That is purely the AVERAGE for the women of the world. So you are quite likely to ovulate on another day. It’s like the average body temperature whilst resting is 98.7 degrees. Many people fluctuate just off this figure.
But you CAN work it out
If it’s not going to be the 14th day for you, you can still easily work it out. However, many women do not ovulate in a regular pattern. If you can calculate these patterns, or look for other signs, then you are well on your way to getting pregnant a lot easier and a lot quicker.
First : Identify the signs of your menstruation cycle
- Identifying the signs of your menstrual cycle is crucial if you want to achieve success.
- The first part of your cycle will be the bleeding. But don’t discount the secondary signs at this stage, such as headaches and cramping
- From here you will need to take your body temperature using a Basal Digital Thermometer
- Make sure you take this first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink and before you even get out of bed.
- Do not drink alcohol the night before as this could affect the reading 9even the following morning)
- Your body temperature will rise on the day that you ovulate 0.5-1.0 degree Fahrenheit, due to the hormone progesterone.
A thick white vaginal mucous is another sign that you are about to ovulate. At this point, also expect an increased sex drive, bloating or cramping as secondary indicators.
Secondly : Track the signs
Once you have identified the signs of ovulation, then it is time to track them. This will ensure greater accuracy further down the line and it will also hi-light any irregular patterns. A simple chart or spread-sheet will suffice for the recording. Ideally you want to plot the results on a graph, so you can spot the fluctuations immediately.
- Each day write down your basal body temperature
- Note also the secondary signs (mentioned in step 1)
- Look out for the immediate spike in temperature, which should follow your vaginal mucus turning white
- Then you would have just ovulated
Thirdly : Notice regular patterns
You will need to track a minimum of two cycles (ideally more) to have a good indication of how your body operates. So these methods won’t guarantee a quick pregnancy. However, armed with this information, it is going to make your sexual planning so much easier and your chances of conception will soar as well.
Remember, this timing is not just about your body. Your partner’s sperm only have a very short shelf-life as well, so timing has to be perfect.
Poor timing is actually one of the main reasons that women are unable to conceive. This part of family planning is so often over-looked, or just merely taken for granted.
- Take this seriously
- Accept your body’s limitations
- It doesn’t run perfectly
- You will need to track your menstrual cycle
If you do all of the above, you will have climbed the first rung of the ladder.
There are plenty more articles on this site to help you closer to conceiving a child. In addition, there are some product reviews for families that are really having difficulties and need to follow a holistic approach of planned eating, stress reduction, sexual positions, and exercise.
