Back In the days, a common thing to hear from a mom to her teen daughter is – If you allow a man get close to you or even touch you (like literarily) you’ll get pregnant lol…(well, Mom felt it was the best sex education)
Your naive self probably agreed to it, but we all get to figure out someday that getting pregnant is so different from what our moms told us, well the reality is getting pregnant sometimes could be way harder than having sex.
Though the human body is uniquely made to suit our individuality, so many factors can still hinder how you get pregnant fast. However, there is a chance of getting pregnant every month you try. Here are 5 top tips you need to try out in other to increase your chances to get pregnant fast.
Know Your Monthly Visitor
Tracking your monthly periods is a very great way to get pregnant fast. First of all your regular monthly periods tells you, your reproductive organs are in good working condition.
Knowing your cycle which counts from the first day you bleed to the day before you start bleeding again helps to track Ovulation which occurs 14 days after your period starts in an average 28day cycle. Your cycle may be shorter or longer than 28days (between 21-35 respectively) or very irregular, so tracking your cycle for a period of 6months and then taking an average can help those with irregular periods track ovulation.
Trying for a baby during your ovulation increases your chance of getting pregnant fast.
2. Check the Pain
If you usually feel severe pain during your periods do see a gynaecologist fast for proper assessment. A condition known as endometriosis can cause severe menstrual cramps and ultimately cause infertility. If checked and diagnosed early treatment can start even before you are ready to conceive, this will increase your chances of getting pregnant when you are ready.
3. Keep the Weight Off
