How can I easily get pregnant? For many couples, deciding to start a family is a huge decision. Once you’ve decided, you might think having a lot of sex and hoping for the best is all you need to do to get pregnant.

Yes, having sex is definitely a key part of conception, but that’s not all there’s to it.

It’s Not All About Sex

Conceiving a baby is actually a numbers game. According to the UK’s National Health Service, out of every 100 couples trying to get pregnant, 80 to 90 are likely to be successful within a year.

Understanding ovulation is a key part of this success rate. A woman usually ovulates around 14 days after the first day of her last period, and having sex during ovulation has the highest chances of resulting in a pregnancy.

Remember that having sex is just a part of conception, and there are a number of changes you have to make in your lifestyle to be able to conceive, maintain a pregnancy and then care for your baby for the crucial first year.

However, the following are some proven tips to get pregnant or that can increase your chances of conception and assure you a healthy pregnancy too.

How Can I Easily Get Pregnant?

Remember trying to get pregnant is not just for women to follow alone, the would-be father’s health has to be maintained as well. Hence;

Balanced Diet

Plant-based foods

A healthy diet which includes foods with high fibre, folate, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is not just good for your overall health but also your reproductive health.

Include lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins like eggs and fish, etc in your daily diet.

Quit Smoking

According to the British Medical Association, women who smoke have a 40% lesser chance of getting pregnant. Smoking also decreases a man’s sperm count and can affect its quality as well, which can lead to infertility.

Sure you need your morning dose of coffee, but it’s best to reduce your caffeine consumption while you’re trying to get pregnant and when you’re pregnant because it can constrict the blood supply to the uterus.

Get Exercise

Ask any obstetrician and you’ll know that women (and men) need more of certain nutrients to get pregnant and maintain that pregnancy.

Consult a doctor about taking folic acid and iron supplements, and ask if you also need vitamins, calcium or any pending vaccinations before conception.

Most importantly, you should get a thorough check-up done before you start planning a baby and this should include getting your full medical history.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or a prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, miscarriages, premature births, etc matter a lot when you’re trying to conceive.
