Become a parent is quite difficult and full of many problems like how to deal with the baby and but it gives immense pleasure to the parents.

But due to some circumstances some of the people don’t get this feeling and have difficulties to conceive the baby.   So here are some ways discussed below to get pregnant faster.

Stop using birth control pills

If you are used to take contraceptive pills to avoid pregnancy then you should take a break from those pills. Christopher Williams, M.D., a reproductive endocrinologist in private practice in Charlottesville, Virginia, and author of The Fastest Way to Get Pregnant Naturally says that if you are planning to have baby then you should pass on the prescription before couple of months executing you plan.  

This statement also apply on the other method of hormonal birth control such as Depo-Provera, and getting shots of progesterone about nine months ago before getting pregnant.

According to Dr. William, when  you stop using birth control method for after using awhile, it may take your body few cycles to start ovulation again on regular basis and become pregnant.  

Stop using these methods also gives you a time to track your ovulation time which is the key factor for the perfect timing to get pregnant. One thing you have to remember, when you stop using contraceptive method you can get pregnant at any time after that.

To figure out the fertile days

In order to get pregnant it is very important to know about or fertile days. Whether

You try 10 times or 1000 times to get horizontal with your partner, if you are skipping  the fertile days when egg is eager to go also known as the key days out of the month, you would not get pregnant. Dr. Williams says that “The biggest mistake my patients make is not knowing exactly when they ovulate”.

Nowadays Most of the doctors recommend using the ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) to measure ovulation more accurately. Still you can also use basal body temperature (BBT) charting method but OPKs is more advance than that BBT , this gives you the warning in advances that the egg is going to be released, So that you can manage the activity according to that for successful pregnancy.

About 36-48 hours prior the ovulation, luteinizing hormone seems to be at surge which is detected by OPKs in urine.

Two types of OPKs are available in the market based on the using period. The first one type of OPKs are those devices which are used before the week of ovulation and second one are those which is used every day of the month.

The first type of OPKs are best for those women who have very regular cycles, since they have to know roughly when to start using the kit. Second one is best for the women who have irregular cycles and they have no idea about the time of ovulate and these devices are a bit expensive than first one.

 For your kind information, subtracting 14 from the length of your cycle is the most approximate method to know about the time when you ovulate and get pregnant faster.

Having sex at right time

right time

No matter how much you try to get pregnant, it is waste of time if you do not know the right time.  The sperms can stay in your uterus and fallopian tubes for around two to three days, but the life of egg is of just 12-24 hours after it gets released so having sex just before the ovulation increases the chance that the sperm can combine with the egg immediately as soon as it gets released.

Here are some tips to do for a typical 28 days cycle (where ovulation is on 14th day):

Try to start having sex few times in the week as soon as your period ends so that you can get pregnant at right time. This practice often ensures that you won’t miss the peak timing which is your fertile time, especially in those cases when your cycle length varies from month to month.

Make sure to have sex every other day starting around 10 days. if you are unable to get any idea about fertile time than use OPKs to know that and when you get positive result from the  OPKs (which is around 12th day of cycle), plan to have sex and do it that day and other two days as it is your prime time to get pregnant.

Best time and position

Dr. William helps to separate the fact from the myth and give the information what really works in your favor. The first thing is the position as Dr. William says that “Because the vagina naturally slopes downward, resting on your back after sex allows sperm to pool there, which gives them an edge in swimming toward your egg,” is important factor.

 The second thing the time so have sex before the bed time even though some of the sources reported that the in morning time is the prime time as it has the highest sperm count, in actual there is no time of the day is optimal to have sex.

Sex session don’ts

There are some things that you don’t have to do during your prime time:

  • Don’t use lubricants just to give the wings to your sperm. Some of the people things that using a lubricant helps the sperms to move quickly while in actual it destroys your efforts to get pregnant by causing hindrance. Many of the formula decrease the sperm mobility in vagina by altering the pH balance of it.
  • Don’t worry if you are not having an orgasm as the concept of boosting the chances to get pregnant on having orgasm has no scientific proofs.
  • In some men the fertility problems arises due to the increased temperature in the testicles under the boxers and briefs. Do not worry about the briefs and boxers as they don’t have any scientific proofs to affect the sperm production.

Get ready to take test

Make sure to get ready for the pregnancy test. The earlier you are getting the news of being pregnant is the best so that you can see your doctor sooner in order to start parenting and to ensure the fulfillment of nutritional requirements of the mother and bay both.

Even though the home pregnancy tests are able to tell you the results as soon as (after 10 days your ovulation), you can get the best results after waiting for the day you are expecting your periods.

During the pregnancy, the level of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) increases and the level of HCG can be detected by the home pregnancy testing kits. This is the working mechanism of the pregnancy kits. This hormone is produced by the placenta and the level of the hormone keep arising in the early pregnancy.  

“Early results” or “early responses” may be more sensitive when it comes to detecting the lower levels of  HCG earlier. Early testing results in the false results, a condition when you are pregnant but your test results does not days the same thing.

In this situation, your body is not producing the enough HCG which is yet to be detected so for better results make sure to wait and test after few days of missing your periods.

If Test result is negative

Don’t get upset if your test results out as negative. This happens in case where you miscalculated your fertile days so consider switching the OPKs if you haven’t tried it.
