  • City service: tips to get pregnant

    Trick 1: Find out when you"re ovulating

    The biggest secret to get pregnant right away is to know exactly when you are ovulating, ie, when one of their two ovaries are releasing an egg. Think of this egg like a target, and imagine the sperm like arrows:. For you to get pregnant, one of the arrows have to hit the target there are several methods to help you discover if you are in the fertile period. One of them is our ovulation calculator. Read more about how your menstrual cycle works. But if you notice that your periods have been very irregular in recent months, may be more difficult to identify ovulation. See what other methods to detect ovulation and consult your doctor to know better how to proceed. 




    Trick 2: Be in the right place at the right time

    Once you know the date of ovulation, prepare (and list your partner) to have sex during your most fertile days. You can get three days before and continuing until after the expected date of ovulation. (Start a little earlier also does not hurt; some women achieved pregnancy having sex until six days before ovulation.) As the sperm survive in your body for a few days, you have a good length of time to try to conceive. This means that if you have intercourse on a Monday, the sperm will stay in her reproductive system, waiting for an egg, until Thursday. Or up to Sunday in some cases. But remember, your egg only survives for about a day. If you do not know when ovulation will occur, follow the good old rule of having sex every other day. So, every day you will have a stock of healthy sperm waiting in the fallopian tube, ready to spring into action when the egg appears. (If you and your partner want to have sex more often than that, no problems. But know that it does not will increase or decrease your chances of getting pregnant). Another tip: if for some reason you are waiting to go into action during the time of ovulation, do not let this happen after a long fast. Your partner needs to ejaculate at least once before the fertile period, but there may be an accumulation of dead sperm in the semen, and they do not serve to conceive a baby. 








    Trick 3: Remain lying down after sex

    For a long time, scientists had no evidence that the woman stay lying down for a while after sex help the sperm to reach the egg. But, in 2009, Dutch researchers found that, in a fertility clinic in Amsterdam, women remained lying on his back for 15 minutes after artificial insemination were 50% more likely to become pregnant than those that remained standing after the procedure. You can not prove that the same probability applies to sexual intercourse, but the study shows that lie can help the sperm to do their part. And anyway, does not hurt to try. It is not necessary to stay with her ??legs up, just lying on her side is enough. 






    Trick 4: Enjoy this time of expectation

    If you hurry to get pregnant, you may end up feeling too anxious about it. This is normal, but the truth is that the chances are greater if you are not stressed. This is because the hypothalamus - the gland in the brain that regulates hormones ovulation. - Does not work so well when you"re nervous, causing her body to end ovulating later or even not release an egg that cycle therefore try maximum to enjoy this phase and all this "lot" of carefree sex. Make sex fun - instead of just thinking about making a baby - you can even increase your chances of getting pregnant. And if you"re thinking of ways to spice things up, good news: there is not a position that is better than the other to get pregnant. All are equally effective. 


    Trick 5: Prepare the ground for superespermatozoides

    Sperm are more likely to fertilize an as healthier, stronger and egg are plentiful. There are several ways to help your partner improve sperm quality:
    • Cut Alcohol (drink daily studies show that may reduce testosterone levels, lower sperm count and increasing the number of defective cells).
    • Declare war on smoking (smoking can reduce the quality of sperm).
    • Eat more foods rich in zinc, folic acid, calcium and vitamins C and D (they help produce many strong and fast sperm).
    • Avoiding hot and sauna baths, since the heat eliminates sperm (testes work best at a temperature between 34.4 and 35 degrees Celsius, slightly less than normal body temperature). Stay long with the laptop on the lap increases the temperature of the testes, as well as riding a bike too.

    The sooner your partner adopt these changes, the better. New sperm can take up to three months to produce. 

    Trick 6: Make sure you also

    Your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and a baby are higher if your body and your life are ready for the task. Before you start trying to conceive, see your gynecologist or general practitioner to see if all is well with your ovulation and if their immunizations are up to date. You will also greatly help if you reduce or cut the consumption of alcoholic beverages and smoking cessation and drugs. All these substances interfere negatively on your fertility and are also dangerous to the fetus. Consider the hypothesis also cut out caffeine. Some studies show that women who take more than one or two cups of coffee a day are less likely becoming pregnant.
