1. Intimate contact in your fertile days
Your most fertile days usually occur in the middle of your menstrual cycle and last approximately 7 days. Therefore, it is important to take note of when your period appeared in a calendar so that you can calculate the best days to get pregnant. You do not need to have intimate contact every day, but during these days it is recommended you have intimate contact every other day.
Some women, especially from the age of 35, are more likely to get pregnant by investing in intimate contact 3 days before their most fertile day.
During these days, you can also use a vaginal lubricant that can increase fertility because they contain calcium and magnesium ions, which favor conception by normalizing the woman's intimate region pH factor.
2. Follow a diet with more vitamins and minerals
A diet that is varied and is nutrient filled improves the functioning of the whole body and so you should change cookies, snacks and fast food for real food.
Wheat germ, eggs, olive oil, sunflower oil, and chickpeas are the foods that you should consume and may help to get pregnant faster. These foods are rich in vitamin E, zinc and B vitamins, which favor conception by acting on the hormonal system.
But in addition, you should invest in foods that are enriched with folic acid and are dark green in color because they contribute to the baby's good development and formation, avoiding problems such as poor closure of the neural tubes.
3. Eat less carbohydrates
You should avoid eating carbohydrates like rice, pasta and bread during your fertile days to avoid changes in vaginal pH, favoring conception. It can be very difficult to follow a carbohydrate free diet, so we recommend you simply remove the rice, potatoes and pasta from the main dishes and changing ordinary bread with whole-grain bread and various fruits throughout the day. Although, these foods have carbohydrates, the nutrients they also contain are essential for the mother and baby's health.
Here's a diet menu without carbohydrates to get inspired.
4. Stay laid down after intimate contact
After the intimate contact, it is recommended the woman should lie on her belly for about 15 minutes without cleaning her intimate region. This may make it easier for sperm to enter the genital tract. Although this fact still lacks scientific proof, it is easy to try.
5. Do physical exercise regularly
Keeping your body active and exercising regularly can also help you get pregnant faster because it improves blood circulation, increases sperm quality and production, decreases anxiety and stress, and improves hormonal control. You can practice at least 30 minutes of exercise every day so that it is possible to increase your heart rate 2 or 3 times a week for 1 hour. The type of exercise isn't important, as long as you feel good while doing it, so you can choose what you most enjoy practicing.
If, you follow these tips and after 12 consecutive months, you still haven't conceived, you should seek a doctor for a more detailed evaluation and if necessary begin pregnancy treatments, such as ovulation induction or in vitro fertilization, for example. The infertility assessment should be done to the couple, because 50% of infertility problems are male.
