Getting Pregnant When Taking Clomid

Are You Trying to Get Pregnant on Clomid?

Clomid is one of the most popular infertility treatments available. It works by inducing ovulation, which can be a major help in trying to conceive for women who have irregular menstruation. If you’re taking Clomid the following tips can help make the most of the increased chances of get pregnant quickly.

Use Ovulation Tests

Clomid makes your ovulation cycle more regular, but we advise not depending on it entirely. Using an ovulation predictor to determine exactly when you’re ovulating is a great idea. Start using the predictor on day 10 of your cycle (7 days after taking Clomid). You can also use temperature checking or another method that works for you. The goal is to narrow down when you’re ovulating as accurately as possible to find your most fertile days to focus your conception efforts.

Have sex frequently, but not too frequently

When you’re taking Clomid starting on day 3 of your cycle, your fertility window is typically between days 7 through 16 of your cycle. You want to be having sex regularly throughout those days, but that doesn’t necessarily mean having sex every day. A high sperm count is just as important as ovulation when trying to conceive. Having sex too often can deplete a man’s supply. As a general rule, aim to have sex every other day. The exception is when you’re ovulating. Use your ovulation predictor, and when it says you’re ovulating, have sex two days in a row. That way, you can maximize your window.

Consider other options

Remember that Clomid is only meant for women who have irregular or failed ovulation. If you and your partner have other fertility problems, Clomid may not be able to fix them. Most people who get pregnant using Clomid conceive within their first three or four cycles. If Clomid isn’t working for you, talk to your doctor about other potential infertility treatments.

Use a Sperm Friendly Lubricant

Clomid is a known cause of vaginal dryness, and when trying to get pregnant that can cause discomfort and actually reduces your chances. Conceive Plus fertility friendly lubricant is formulated with Calcium and Magnesium ions to support sperm viability and help increase the chances of getting pregnant, naturally!

The Social Pressure Of Getting Pregnant

The Social pressure of getting pregnant. In this liberal day and age, you would expect the pressure on couples to conceive to have died off. But this is far from the case. The media, as well as friends and family, and sometimes even strangers, all have an opinion on when a woman should start having kids, and those opinions are voiced loudly. Granted, these opinions are generally intended to be good-natured, however, it can be quite confronting and stressful; especially if the couple is already having problems conceiving, or just don’t want to have kids.

Where it comes from

The intense pressure put on some couples, even when the ring has only just been put on the finger, more often than not, comes from the want-to-be grandparents. With their desire to be young enough to enjoy their grandchildren, they panic that time is running out. Once a woman has hit the age of thirty, the questioning is bound to begin.

This is all well and good if the couple is ready for children. But what of those who have been trying for months or years with no luck? They may not wish to share this difficult and personal time with everyone they meet. And the constant questioning can only add to their despair and frustration. This additional stress can only hinder their chances of conception further, with stress triggering hormonal responses that make conception difficult. Many stories have been heard of women trying to conceive for many difficult years, only to fall pregnant once they had ‘given up’ and taken that pressure off themselves.

What would you do?

Imagine the frustration and grief that must be felt when a woman is forever asked when she’s going to have kids, when in fact she is desperate for a child but is unable to conceive. Or, when a woman has no desire to have kids—a concept that it difficult for many to comprehend, especially those in the older generations.

It is true that fertility does decrease with age, but it doesn’t rule out a woman being able to fall pregnant in her late thirties or early forties. The pressure that is exerted onto women can be dangerous. They may feel the ‘what if’ notion—falling pregnant when they are just not ready, because they are scared by ‘what if I can’t fall pregnant in a few years time’. The pressure to hurry into starting a family could lead to further problems, in the couple’s relationship and bonding with the child.

What is the best response?

So what is the best response when dealing with the pressure from so many people? It is a personal decision as to how much information to share with people; some don’t mind discussing the topic and any issues quite openly, and others like to keep it to themselves. Keeping responses positive is probably the best way, as generally people aren’t aware their questions are causing any distress. Keeping it on a need-to-know basis should help ease some of the constant questions and prying. Obviously, your response will vary depending on the person and your relationship with them. A persistent relation may need a direct, and to the point response to make it clear that you will not be discussing it with them. With a work colleague, deflecting their questions with humor and giving little away, is advisable.

Regardless of the decision on whether to have children or when to start trying to conceive, or if fertility problems arise, the pressure put upon women can create a very stressful and detrimental environment. It is a personal decision that is nobody’s business but the couples.

HOW BODY WEIGHT (BMI) CAN IMPACT OUR CHANCES OF GETTING PREGNANT

If you are thinking about getting pregnant or trying, it is important to be aware of how exercise, or lack of exercise may be affecting your natural fertility. The fact is most of us never think that exercise can impact our infertility, however too much or too little exercise may delay or even prevent you from becoming pregnant.

It’s widely accepted that obesity has a negative affect on our health, but did you also know that over exercise and low body weight (BMI) may also affect fertility.

What is BMI?

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women, regardless of gender, age, or frame size.

What’s so important about BMI?

Being too thin (a body mass index of less than 18.5) or overweight (a BMI of 25 or more) may affect your natural fertility and additional research shows obesity may increase the risks of complications during pregnancy and even your baby’s health. If you are concerned about your weight you should consult your General Practitioner.

Use our tool to calculate your pre-pregnancy BMI. This will give you a starting point for recommended weight gain or loss.

WHAT IS MY BMI – BODY WEIGHT

Calculate your BMI here

less than 18.5  = I am underweight

Between 18.5-24.9 = I am normal weight

Between 25-29.9 = I am Overweight

BMI of 30 or greater = I am classified as having Obesity

Some research about being Overweight

Danish researchers in a study of over 5000 men found a link between obesity in men and lower sperm count compared to normal weight men (see 1)  and in the same study found a lower IVF success rate for women with a BMI over 35 (13% compared to 19% among healthy weight women). They were also less likely to become pregnant after two in-vitro fertilization attempts (22% became pregnant vs more than 20% of normal or underweight women. If you are overweight, losing 5 percent to 10 percent of your current weight is often enough to improve ovulation.

What About being Underweight?

A Harvard researcher, Professor Rose Frish has conducted a range of studies showing how under nutrition and intense physical activity can have a limiting effect on female fertility. Women who have too little body fat, because of over dieting and/or intensive physical activity show a disruption or impairment of their reproductive ability (see 2) . If you are too lean, gaining 2-5kg can sometimes be enough to restart ovulation and menstrual periods.

Pregnancy Tips To Increase Your Chances Of Getting Pregnant

It is important to have a healthy body and mind ready for conception. This means reducing toxins and bad habits from your lifestyle. This not only goes for the female but also the male. A man’s sperm take months to develop before ejaculation and therefore a toxin free lifestyle is important too.

Try taking a holistic approach to maximizing the likelihood of pregnancy, below are a number of simple steps both partners can take to help you on the path to getting pregnant and conceiving a baby naturally. These steps have been developed taking into consideration generally accepted health professional advice as well as recognised health research.

Smoking

According to the Health Institute, (Australian Government initiative) smoking is an important risk factor for the three diseases that cause most deaths in Australia: heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. Smoking has also been linked to cancers of the mouth, bladder, kidney, stomach and cervix, among others. Smokers are also at increased risk of having reduced lung function from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Using tobacco has been linked to a variety of other conditions, such as diabetes, peptic ulcers, some vision problems, and back pain. Smoking in pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth. Smoking can negatively affect fertility and sperm health. If you are trying to get pregnant consider stopping smoking.

Stress Management

Trying to conceive can be a stressful time in a couple’s relationship. Stress negatively affects fertility in many ways on top of the stress you already have trying to get pregnant! Look for ways to reduce stress in your life. Perhaps try yoga, meditation, swimming, look for something you will enjoy and that you feel is relaxing. Most importantly, fun and laughter will help with a happy mental state. Try and create a fun environment for sex, enjoy love making rather than focusing on it as a task.

Weight Management

It is important throughout all times in our life to maintain a healthy weight range. So of course being a healthy weight around the time of conception is an important step. Both being underweight and overweight can reduce fertility. Look at a balanced diet with lots of grains, fruit, vegetables and small amounts of organic meat and fish; perhaps seek a dietitian or nutritionist advice. Regular exercise combined with a healthy diet should help to create healthy body and mind.

Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol can effect fertility. The Australian National Research advises against drinking alcohol before and during pregnancy. Drinking alcohol can increase the risk of miscarriage and abnormalities in the baby. Alcohol can also effect male sperm health so it is advisable for men to reduce their alcohol consumption.

Medication/Drugs

It is best to discuss with your doctor or specialist about any medications you are taking that may affect fertility. It is also important to review any over the counter medications you and your partner are taking as they may also affect fertility and sperm count.

Other Toxins

Your home or workplace may be potential sites for toxins that may be damaging to fertility and pregnancy. Seek the advice of a healthcare practitioner to identify and sources and provide treatment for the elimination of substances.
Workplace and home environment substances could include:
pesticides e.g. DDT, dibromochloropropane, chlordecone, ethylenedibromide, chlorpyrifos (Dursban)
herbicides e.g. Dioxin
fungicides
hydrocarbons e.g. vehicle emissions, benzopyrene, PCB
chemical solvents e.g. xylene, acetone, trichlorethylene, petroleum distillates, paint thinners and strippers, glycol ethers found in paint, solder vapors
toxic smoke from burning synthetic and plastic based compounds
textile dyes
dry cleaning chemicals
lead, mercury, cadmium
gasoline, oil-based paints, cleaning solvents, adhesives
exposure to radiation can be toxic to a pregnancy

Foods To Avoid When TTC Trying to Conceive

Peas: A chemical in peas have anti-fertility effects for both men and women. Scientists discovered that the birth rate in Tibet was considerably lower than other parts of the world. The cause was found to be peas, a staple food for the population. In clinical trails performed in the USA women were given the chemical (in capsule form) found in peas and pregnancies dropped by 60%. In men sperm rates were slashed by 50% too.

Soy Products: Soy foods contain a natural source of estrogen which can be beneficial but if you are trying to get pregnant any excess in estrogen can cause hormonal imbalances. The result is often interference with ovulation and egg production. It is therefore wise to avoid all forms of soy foods when you are tyring to get pregnant.

Maintain his sexual virility

There is two of you to consider when you are trying to get pregnant and his health impacts on the volume of his sperm ejaculation. Aside from all of these easy and practical tips, another option that one can take to achieve sexual health is by regularly taking a dose of multivitamins. They may initially appear to be extra costs on the daily budget, but multivitamins actually offer several beneficial effects. They can help improve one’s appetite and relieve stress that can come from various fronts, including the workplace. Stress and a poor appetite need to be properly addressed as these usually have adverse effects on sexual urges.
