How to get pregnant
Timing is everything when it comes to falling pregnant - if you want to increase your chances of getting pregnant you need to have sexual intercourse during your fertile time.
So when is your fertile time?
A woman is fertile during mid cycle ovulation.
To successfully conceive - it is best to have intercourse in the fertile window of opportunity starting at a bout 2-3 days before ovulation. Sperm can live for up to 3 days in the right conditions, and it is the fertile cervical mucus present in a womans cervix and vagina in the few days leading up to ovulation that creates these perfect conditions for sperm.
There are a couple of ways to find out when your fertile time is - by counting the days (the rhythm method) or observing fertile mucus.
So to achieve pregnancy - OBSERVE WHEN YOU ARE FERTILE - count mid cycle days or observe fertile mucus ( or both ) and THEN HAVE SEX. Getting the timing right in this way helps enormously.
What about Lunar Fertility??
There is one more window of opportunity and that is lunar fertility. Studies have shown that women can be and are fertile during the same phase of the moon that they were born under. Go here for more info.
So to really increase your chances of getting pregnant - synchronising your mid cycle ovulation to your natal lunar phase fertile time can give you that extra oomph to help you conceive. For more information on how to do this see our individualised Conception Action Pack
Coming off the Pill
If you have just come off the Pill and are ready to have a baby, be prepared for the fact that conception may not happen straight away.
You need to remember that while you have been on the Pill you have been having a fake or artificial menstrual cycle. The hormones in the Pill have been running and regulating your menstrual cycle not your body.
When you come off the Pill it takes a little while for your body to regain its natural hormonal rhythm. It essentially has to start doing what it hasn't been doing in some time. How long it takes for your body to regain its rhythm is individual. Be patient.
Remember, You don't have to rely solely on the hit and miss results of using mid cycle ovulation alone to get pregnant. The Conception Action Pack gives you everything you need so you can super charge your odds of getting pregnant each and every menstrual cycle.
