Getting pregnant faster. When you are trying to get pregnant, it’s what every woman wants. Pregnancy, and having a baby, are the most exciting times of a woman’s life, and it is only natural that a woman would want to hurry up and get to that time. Luckily, there are some things that you can do to help yourself get pregnant faster. Read on for more info.
1. Visit Your Doctor
Before you start trying to conceive, visit your doctor for a pre-conception checkup to make sure that everything is okay with your body, and to get some helpful tips on trying to conceive. Your doctor will be able to look at your family and personal medical history, as well as examine your body, to help you determine a personalized plan to maximize your fertility.
2. Know Your Fertile Times
Finding out when you are fertile, aka knowing your ovulation times, is one of the most important parts of getting pregnant. There are only a couple of days each month where a woman can get pregnant, so finding out those days is of the utmost importance. There are several ways to know when you are ovulating, from using an ovulation predictor kit, to charting basal body temperature, to paying attention to cervical mucus. Once you know when your fertile days are, you will be more likely to get pregnant.
3. Get In Shape
Being overweight can really wreak havoc on your fertility. If you are overweight, you should consider trying to lose a little weight in order to get pregnant faster. Doctors say that women who are overweight can boost their fertility by losing as little as five to ten pounds.
If you want to lose weight, consider your diet. Cut out processed foods and junk foods, and add in more whole grains, lean meats, full fat dairy (good for conception) and fruits and veggies. Also make sure that you are getting at least 30 minutes of exercise each day to increase your chances of conceiving.
4. Cut Out Negatives
It is important that if you are engaging in any behaviors that could inhibit your fertility, that you cut those out while you are trying to conceive. These behaviors can include things like smoking, using alcohol, or using illegal drugs. Not getting enough sleep or engaging in stressful behaviors can also wreak havoc on your fertility.
Of course, we have already touched on the importance of diet and exercise and what a big role it plays in fertility. Make sure to also take a prenatal vitamin each day in order to give your fertility a little boost and help yourself to get pregnant faster.
Be careful when and how you use itI 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 EmbarrassmentWas 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.”
