Trying to conceive can be an emotional roller coaster for many couples. It can be heart breaking each month when you have been trying, and you don’t receive a positive pregnancy test. It can be hard. However, there are many things you can do to get you back on track. The first thing you and your partner must do is support each other. This is an emotional time for all involved. I hope that some of these ways can help you get back on track.
Looking after your body and focusing on how you nourish it can have a big effect on your chances of conceiving. You need to get a good intake of protein, vitamin C and vitamin D in your diet. Be sure to include protein rich foods such as meat, eggs, fish and beans. It’s also recommended to take a supplement of Folic Acid during the time of conception. It can have a big impact on the baby’s development in the first few weeks of life.
Get checked out
Sometimes there may be an underlying problem causing the delay in conceiving a child. Many times these things can go unnoticed until you get checked out. Things like polycystic ovaries, hormonal imbalances and issues with male fertility like sperm count. Females often have issues that need resolving, and there are ways to combat things like polycystic ovaries. Some data supports these initial findings. The best advice would be to seek some guidance from a fertility specialist to highlight if there are any issues that need addressing.
Think before having a drink
Trying to conceive can be a bit of a minefield. You know that you should reduce your intake of caffeine and stop consuming alcohol during pregnancy. But are you taking the same precautions while trying to conceive? Alcohol affects estrogen levels, and can cause problems conceiving a child. It has an effect on egg implantation and can delay your chances of conceiving quickly. This is why it’s worth trying to have the same attitude when trying to conceive as you would when pregnant.
Reduce the amount of stress you have
Stress can have a big impact on your mindset. This is why if you are worrying about issues going on in your life it could be deterring your chances of getting pregnant. Try and reduce the amount of stress in your life. A great way is to focus on your mind. You may want to take up meditation to try an alleviate some of the stress in your life.
Be up to speed with your cycle
A great thing you need to be is up to speed on your menstrual cycle. This is a great way to highlight your most fertile days and best chances of conception. Being more aware of this should help you move forward with your trying to conceive journey.
The best piece of advice would be to try and not focus too much on things. Just get busy in the bedroom and have some fun. Sometimes taking the focus off the main point can bring you the results you desperately want.
