Trying To Get Pregnant Tips - Top 6 Scientifically Proven Methods
How often have you heard some trying to get pregnant tips? You often get tips from your mom, your sister, your colleagues... it seems that everyone suddenly knows some lifesaving tips when you tell them that you are trying to get pregnant.
Here are 6 tips that are scientifically proven to help and increase your chances to get pregnant.
Tip #1 - Use Pillows
During intercourse, you should tell your partner to place two pillows underneath your hips so that your hips are tilted upwards. The reason for this is to aid the sperm descend to the area where fertilization can occur by keeping the sperm inside your vagina without allowing it exit prematurely. You should also utilize the "missionary" sex position during intercourse.
Tip #2 - Do It At The Right Time Of The Day
Believe it or not but some studies have found that sperm levels are actually higher in the morning than later in the day. This could be to do with our body temperature that is generally the lowest in the morning, and the cooler your partner's testicles, the better his sperm! Don't worry if you can't fit sex in the morning into your schedule though, even though sperm concentration may be higher in the morning, there is still more than enough sperm around later in the day.
Tip #3 - Immobile Ejaculation
The reason why you should try to remain immobile once your partner begins to ejaculate is so that deep penetration is made possible. Once ejaculation is complete, he should quickly but gently exit while you should try to remain immobile for up to two hours.
Tip #4 - If You Have Extra Weight, Try To Lose Some Weight
Extra weight can unfortunately lower your chances to get pregnant, and it doesn't take a lot of weight for that. Women with a BMI over 30 have significantly lower chances to conceive compared to average-weight women. Even slightly overweight women with a BMI between 25 and 29 however, still have a drastically lowered chance of successful conception. Any extra weight you carry triggers the production of extra oestrogen and that in turn can keep you from ovulation regularly. Studies have shown that 30 to 40 percent of obese women have irregular cycles. If you are overweight, try losing a little bit of weight to get that extra advantage when trying to get pregnant.
Tip #5 - Pay close attention to your fertility signs
Every cycle your body gives you some hints when it comes to fertility. Many women experience some sort of crampy ache in their lower abdomen, near the ovaries. This is also known as mittelschmerz and can mean that you are about to ovulate. Another sign that you are approaching ovulation is a fullness in your vulva and vaginal lips, often on the side from which you ovulate. Some women also notice some light spotting before ovulation. This can be caused by the sudden drop of oestrogen before ovulation.
Tip #6 - Choose the right position
When it comes to making a baby some sexual positions are better than others, though you don't need to pull out the Kama Sutra book. Generally, the closer your partner's sperm is deposited to your cervix, the better. Positions that allow deep penetration are usually considered perfect when trying to get pregnant, so keep that in mind. Of course some positions can also be in the way of conceiving. Basically you want to avoid any position with the woman on top or standing, to not allow the sperm to leak out again.
