Thank you for reaching the final page of my 100 Tips for getting pregnant (assuming that you have clicked through each page)…..If you have just happened to have landed on this page then ‘welcome’, if you want to see the rest of the 90 tips in this series then start here : 10 Pregnancy Nutrition Tips and work your way through each page.
This final page in the series is really a mixture of ideas from all of the previous categories, but with a difference. What you see below really are some of the best tips (yes I did save the best until last, as a reward for you seeing it through to the end).
When discussing these 100 tips with the members in my support group, the tips mentioned below where ones that really struck a chord with the members (That’s not to say that the others listed on the previous pages are not important).
91 – Have Sex
Okay, it’s obvious, but many couples are so caught up with being told that they must have sex in certain days of the month and of course you have to take account of the man’s sperm count but as Nike would say “Just do it” !! You can only score if you take a shot at the goal.
92 – Wake Up & Make Love
I’d actually like to go one step further than the above tip……Making love first thing in the morning could improve your chances of conception. Sperm count in male’s increases during the night – all you have to go is set the alarm clock a little bit earlier and away you go.
These can be an excellent way of predicting the best time to conceive – i.e. the peak ovulation time of the month. They are easy to obtain via your local pharmacy or on-line stores. They come in the form of a test that measures luteinizing hormone levels. You need to make sure that you follow the instructions carefully to ensure that you do not get any false readings. The one I highly recommend is The Clearblue Ovulation Kit, which can be purchased from Amazon.
94 – Male Fertility Test
Although figures differ greatly, a significant reason for families struggling to conceive is due to issues with male sperm production. It costs less for the male to get his semen checked before the women has a fertility test. It is also easier to perform. There are two that come recommended, depending on your budget, as a start in this area :

95 – Not Just A Waiting Game…. But Also A Weighting Game
More than 1 in 10 cases of infertility are because the wannabe mother is too heavy or too light. A woman with too much body fat produces an excess of sex hormones. This will cause the body to regulate this, which it does too efficiently – effectively reducing the chances of conceiving. Conversely, a female with not enough body fat will struggle to produce sufficient estrogen for a successful reproductive cycle. You therefore need to stay within ideal weight guidelines for your height and build.
96 – Stay Clear Of Ibuprofen
Ibuprofen has been known to delay ovulation by as much as five days. So if you are trying to time your lovemaking you could be caught out. There is also a suggestion that taking similar such anti-inflammatories can disturb proper implantation. You could take simple herbs to reduce inflammation – for example ginger or turmeric.
97 – Beware Of Other Prescription Medicines
Always check the side effects of any prescription drugs and some do effect ovulation. It’s all about telling your doctor what you are trying to achieve and limiting the potential road-blocks to success.
98 – Get Support
I have dedicated two articles for getting outside professional help, but it’s also important to ensure that you are getting inside help via your family and friends. It isn’t embarrassing to admit that you are struggling to get pregnant and most people should be supportive. Remember it can actually have an effect on your relationship with your partner. There are also support groups local to you that can prove vital for sharing success stories. Ultimately, the more support you have, the lower your stress levels will be, and this in turn will improve your chances of conceiving.
99 – Consider Alternative Treatments & Stay Open Minded
When most people think of infertility treatments, they automatically think of IVF. However, hopefully this series of 100 Tips For Getting Pregnant has opened your mind to the myriad of alternative options available. In these difficult financial times the last thing people want is to spend money on expensive treatments and many are actually seeing fantastic success with inexpensive alternative methods.
100 – Don’t Give Up
Yes they may be times when you want to give up, but there are many cases whereby people have struggled for years and then ‘it just happened’ for them. Whilst there is still a chance there is always hope. Every month is another chance of getting what you desire. Treat it as a fresh start and remember the past does not equal the future. It might just be that small change which makes a huge difference.
I’m going to add in a couple of very good tips here :
Bonus 1 – Don’t Waste Time Surfing The Net
That might sound a little strange, because it’s surfing the net which has got you to this page. However… PLEASE STOP NOW !!!
I know far too many women that have struggled to get pregnant and they have spent hours / days / weeks / months surfing the net looking for ‘that little miracle’ hidden in an out of the way web-site. Unfortunately, those little miracles just don’t exist. It’s too easy to fall into the trap of picking up and idea here and an idea there.
Bonus 2 – Follow A Dedicated Program
This one is just common sense, but it is linked to the Bonus Tip 1, mentioned above :
- If you want to learn to play a musical instrument, you will follow a program designed to teach you the basics and work your way up.
- If you want to loose weight, you will follow a weightloss program.
- If you want to get fit for a marathon, you will follow an exercise program.
And so to getting pregnant. Even if you used all of the 100 tips I’ve given you on these 10 pages, the chances of you getting pregnant may be better than they were, but without clear direction or a structure to follow you could still be just ‘hitting and hoping’.
What’s next to help get you pregnant ?
I hope that my 100 tips for getting pregnant have given you a starting point and you are able to introduce many of these ideas straight away. However, I should tell you that I have only been able to scratch the surface with these tips and if you are really serious about getting pregnant then you need to follow a full professional program – rather than just pick aimlessly at a few tips (from this web site or any other for that matter).
With this in mind, I highly recommend that you take a look at The Full Embrace™ Pregnancy Success Program, by Diana Farrell. Please click on the image below.
