How easy it is to get pregnant depends on how you make your sperm meet an egg on ovulation day. We do not need to “do it” every day to succeed. There are a few easy ways to get pregnant that help “just married” couples identify this time and increase the likelihood of success. At the same time, avoid being stressed and tired of this “baby production” war.
Also, in order to increase the chances, couples should refer the factors harmful to pregnancy.
Choosing the Right Time Is The Easiest Way To Get Pregnant
In the fight to find a way to get pregnant, timing is the deciding factor. The perfect eggs and the perfect sperms will “sacrifice meaninglessly” if they do not meet each other. For them to meet, you should have sex on the ovulation day (due date). It is the day an egg drops out of the chamber, or a few days before. Sperms can live in the uterus environment for several days. Therefore, we do not need to worry too much about time. But if you miss the moment, you will have to wait until next month.
On the other hand, couples can “make it” daily throughout the week of ovulation. This will greatly increase the probability for sperms to find the egg. If you are too busy, or it is difficult to implement this plan, you will need to take a closer look at ovulation.
For you reference:
Mark The Due Date In Your Menstrual Cycle
One of the biggest misunderstandings about fertility is that women ovulate and are most likely to get pregnant on the 14th day of menstruation. That is only true for those women with perfect cycles, with 28 days each. In fact, it’s not the 14th day from the start of the cycle that the probability of fertilization is high. More precisely, 14 days before that is the day to note to get pregnant.
Therefore, if you have a very stable cycle, you can calculate the day of ovulation by subtracting 2 weeks from the next menstrual period. For example:
- With a monthly cycle of 30 days, ovulation day is the 16th.
- With a 26-day cycle, ovulation day is the 12th day.
Observe Body Temperature
Monitoring and recording your body temperature is a good way to determine ovulation days, refering this article. When you wake up in the morning, lie back in bed and measure your temperature right away. Women average body temperature, in normal days, is between 35.5 – 37.2 Celcius degrees. When there is an egg, the temperature will increase slightly. Body temperature continues to stay at that level or continue to rise until menstruation. If you charted this temperature for several consecutive periods, you can predict the date of ovulation in the next period. Provided that the monthly cycle does not change, you will easily find a date to get pregnant.
However, stable body temperatures are not a completely reliable way to conduct “implementation”. When body temperature rises, there is not much time left for the sperms to meet the egg.
If you choose this approach, you can find special thermometers for this. They are not expensive and are available in almost every drug store. This thermometer accurately measures to 1/10 Celsius degrees which helps easier observation.
Use The Ovulation Test Kit
For women who have a “strange” cycle, monitoring body temperature is not feasible. In this case, we need the support of urine test kits. They help predict ovulation quite accurately to make it easier to get pregnant. These kits are also available at drug store. They measure luteinizing hormone in urine. This hormone is especially elevated right before the day of ovulation.
Some similar measures:
- Urine test strips. Same as the kit above, but simpler. This test strip changes its color if luteinizing hormone level is high.
- The kit measures estrogen levels in saliva.
- Powder kit measures chloride level in sweat.
Estrogen levels rise abnormally close to the due date. This is the reason that we suddenly feel more “desire” than usual. It’s not that you inadvertently meet a guy that’s so cool. It is the call of nature on us to practice our duty.
Watch For Vaginal Discharge
Another test that helps us better understand our cycle to get pregnant and easily recognizable. We do not need special kits or instruments to observe vaginal fluid. In addition to being convenient, private and completely free, this method is very accurate.
We can look and feel our underwear or on paper towels to know what date our cycle is on:
- A few days after the cycle has ended, vagina fluid is dry and sticky. Then it starts to loose and wet.
- When the fluid is viscous and chewy (like raw egg whites), it’s the easiest day to get pregnant.
Whether using traditional or high-tech methods, they can help you identify the most important day. Once you have the destination, then proceed to “race”! Before you get the good news, you might want to know when your 1st Week of Pregnancy starts! Good luck to the future mothers!
