- Give it a year period of grace
Experts say, if you are 28 years old and your sex life is good, wonderful and exciting, and there is nothing in your medical history to suggest to a possible reproductive problem, keep trying for one year. About 60% of couples conceive with a space of 6 months and 90% conceive within one year. When you get older, naturally fertility decreases a bit. Even women in their twenties don’t ovulate every month. In their thirties, the likelihood of monthly ovulation begins to lessen. That’s why the older you are, the sooner you will want to consult a gynecologist.
- Talk it out
Both of you should decide if you want to have a child. There should not be any ambivalence, as it is often reported in couple stories. A man who had a couple of children in an earlier marriage was not sure if he wanted to have children anymore in his current marriage. So, having sorted it out with the specialist, both now had their children, and was excited as becoming a father again.
- Let the zeal overcome you
If you have got time, let the passion and excitement of becoming a parent overtake you. Forget the ovulation, mucus charts and schedules for sex periods.
- Ease up your own work schedule
Work-aholism and constant pressure can put the squeeze on fertility. Your body knows that a period of extreme stress is not an ideal time to get pregnant.
- Use the standard missionary position on days when you suspect the woman is fertile, which is the man-on-top style of intercourse which is best for conception. The woman should remain lying down for 20 minutes after her partner ejaculates. Better both couples fall asleep after sex.
- Stop smoking
Cigarettes can impair fertility in men and women. Studies show that men that smoke are more likely than nonsmokers to have sperm counts below the normal range, and to have less sperm motility. A study also shows that, out of 17,032 women even tried that the more cigarette a woman smoked per day, the less fertile she was likely to be. Researchers suspect that smoking may alter hormone levels in a woman’s body.

Helpful tips for women alone
- Make sure you are ovulating; are you having regular period? If not, then you may not ovulate. Key noticeable pointers to ovulation is changes in cervical mucus midway through the cycle. The mucus will be thin, watery and clear. Other signs include premenstrual breast tenderness, cramps, and what the Germans call mittelschmerz-ovulation pain.
Test your ovulation with an ovulation kit from the drugstore. The kit, which reads levels of the ovulation release hormone in your urine, is only 50% effective when you use it morning and night. Kits available only through your doctor’s office tend to be more accurate. The best time to test is between 10:00am and noon. Sound great if you have a positive result on first use. Show the kit is sensitive to you, rather consult your doctor.
Studies show that 346 women with ovulatory dysfunction found some evidence that women who had never been pregnant and who exercised vigorously for more than one hour a day increased their risk of infertility. The study found that exercise exerted its effect on fertility through a means independent on its ability to promote weight loss. The suspicion here is a guess that endorphins, brain chemicals released during vigorous exercise, may, like morphine, affect a woman’s prolactin levels. Elevated prolactin levels may interfere with ovulation.
- If you want to be a fertility goddess, then try to look like one. Researchers have found that body fat can actually produce and store estrogen, a hormone that primes the body for pregnancy. When total body estrogen is too high or too low the system can be thrown off balance. The more-fat, the more estrogen is produced. Some women can induce ovulation by putting on a few pounds or taking off a few. You want to be within 95% of that ideal but below 120%. In a study, 29 slim and non-ovulatory women attained ovulation when they gained enough weight to put them within 95% of the ideal. Within three years of entering the program, 24 of the 29 became pregnant. In another study, 11 of 13 overweight and non-ovulatory women gained ovulation after they lost weight; 10 conceived.

- Go easy on the exercise; reason for this is that, if exercise makes you lose too much body fat, you can stop ovulating. But even if you maintain normal body weight, you may still put yourself at risk if you spend more than an hour a day working hard at activities like running, cross country skiing or swimming.
- Time is just right, keep it simple, easy; if ovulation is occurring normally, maybe you’re not just making love when you’re fertile. It could be two career minded couples working in parallels.
How do you remedy this?
Try to predict ovulation; if you don’t want much hassle on this, you can predict the date of your next period and count back 14 days. Then make love every night from day 11 through day 16. Or you can buy an over-the-counter ovulation test kit, which will give you about 24 to 36 hours advance warning of ovulation. When the test indicates ovulation, make love that night and the night after.
- Thou shall not douche; for real, anything that interferes with the PH. level of the vagina can make life unfriendly for sperm. That includes douches, lubrication agents and jellies. The advice here is if you leave the vagina alone, it will do just well in cleansing itself.
- Go Super-easy on caffeine; more than a cup of coffee can hurt your chances of becoming pregnant. The same holds true if you ingest the equivalent amount of caffeine from chocolates, soft drinks, or other caffeinated beverages. In a study of 104 women who were attempting to become pregnant, researchers found out that those who drank more than the caffeine equivalent of a cup of coffee a day were half as likely to conceive as those who consumed less.

- Give your sperm time to bounce back; any viral illness associated with fever can depress sperm count for three months says a research. Bad colds can also have the same effect. Why is the effect so long lasting? The answer is: the normal cycle to produce a sperm is 78 days, it takes another 12 days for the sperm to mature. Healthy sperm, by the way, contains in excess of 20 million sperm per teaspoon. If you looked at the sample under the microscope, more than 60% will appear to be swimming forward. If your sperm count is healthy, a cold or flu probably won’t knock it out of the fertility range. An illness may affect it, it’s on a borderline.
- It’s a NO, NO to steroids; anabolic steroids can shut off the pituitary gland and alter the body’s natural hormone balance. It’s not uncommon for athletes to have infertility problems, this may be due to long-time use of steroids, which may irreversibly damage the testicles.
- Be wary of drugs and alcohol; various over-the-counter prescription, drugs can depress sperm count, if you are not sure about the medications you use, consult your physician of pharmacist. Antibiotics, chemotherapeutic agents and Tagamet are to be guided against. Chronic drinking and habitual marijuana use can be at variance with your goal at conception with your wife.
- Keep your testicles cool; nature’s way of keeping your testicles a half degree cooler than your core body temperature is to house them outside the body. But if you heat the core temperature too much, of heat the testicles themselves, you can affect sperm production. Advice here is, be mindful of excessive physical activity, temperature extremes, hot tubs and close-fitting underwear, if you want to father a child.
All-in-One Solution For Women
- Abstinence works to make the sperm stronger; if a baby is what you are after, daily intercourse can be too much of a good thing, because it can decrease your sperm count. For the average couple, it may not mean much, but a borderline case of sperm count, it may do. Experts recommend you abstain for two days prior to the woman’s fertile period to let the sperm build up, then make love every other day.
- Couples use egg white as vaginal lubricant to induce conception;
This is not some magic bullet, it’s only useful as a lubricant to those couples who find dryness a problem. Use this as a lubricant only for a few days each month. When a woman is fertile. The rest of the month they should use whatever lubricant suits their fancy.
Why egg white: research suggest that egg white had the most effect on sperm motility and survival, it makes sense that egg white is pure protein, and the vast amount if sperm is pure protein in nature. Sperm does not do well in a carrier different form its structure. Tis works brilliantly with couples looking for conception. Don’t use, if you are allergic to it. Take the egg out of the refrigerator ahead of time, so that it’s not cold and separate the white from the yolk. It makes no difference whether you apply the substance to the glans of the penis or the vagina.
