When you’re trying to become pregnant, you are probably looking to conceive quickly because you are excited about the idea of becoming a parent. Unfortunately, some people have issues when they try to become pregnant and find that it takes them longer than they would like.

However, there are many things that you can do to boost your fertility and increase your chances of becoming pregnant faster. Below are eight ways that you can boost your fertility and improve your chances of conceiving.

1. Healthy diet

One of the most important things about trying to become pregnant is eating a healthy diet. There are many foods that can help you gain the nutrients that you need to increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Some of the most important nutrients are protein, zinc, vitamin C and iron.

2. Watch your weight

Whether you are overweight or underweight these issues can make it more difficult to become pregnant. It is best for you to maintain a healthy body weight so that your hormones are protected and you will ovulate regularly. Women who are underweight have a higher risk of miscarriages as well as other issues.

3. Lifestyle changes

There are many things in your life they can keep you from becoming pregnant. Some of those items are cigarettes and alcohol. Not only do cigarettes interfere with the conception process by a affecting fertilization and implantation of the egg, but it can also cause your ovaries to age prematurely. Since we’re not able to develop new eggs, this can make becoming pregnant nearly impossible.

4. Track your cycle

Knowing when you ovulate is an important part of becoming pregnant. There is only a small window of time that you can become pregnant every month and you must time intercourse around this window. You should track your cycle on a daily basis so that you know when you should be having intercourse.

5. Have sex regularly

Is suggested that you have sex every other day while you are ovulating so that you give sperm the chance it needs to get to egg and fertilize it. During the remainder of the month, however, it is best to engage in regular intercourse at least once a week.

6. Remove stress

Stress can be a major factor when you’re trying to become pregnant. If you have been trying for several months without success, removing it from your life can be nearly impossible. However, it is important to attempt to do so because stress can be a leading factor that causes trouble with fertility.

There are many techniques that you can use to remove stress from your life and everyone has their own favorite method. As long as you are not engaging in an unhealthy activity, you can probably use whatever method that you feel most comfortable with.

7. Stay hydrated

Drinking lots of water has great benefits for the body in general but it can also help while you are trying to become pregnant. It has the ability to improve your cervical mucus and make your reproductive system work better together. You should try to drink eight glasses of water each day so that you can stay hydrated and keep your fertility healthy.

8. Consider your partner Health

Keep in mind, that you are not the only portion of this equation. Your partner also needs to be as healthy as possible and should maintain a healthy diet and take a multivitamin. He should also avoid smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol while you are trying to become pregnant because they can also hinder the quality and motility of his sperm.

Since it takes about three months for a man to grow new sperm, protecting it becomes important and he should take the steps necessary to do so.

9. Conclusion

If you have been trying to become pregnant for over a year you need to visit with your doctor. However, in the meantime you can try out some of these methods above to help improve your chances of becoming pregnant and boosting your fertility.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
