What You Need to Know about Ovulation When Trying to Conceive

When trying to conceive, your first step to success should be to get in sync with your ovulation cycle. Understanding how ovulation works will help you plan your path to pregnancy and conceive sooner. We’ve prepared some important facts about ovulation to help you on your way sooner.

How does ovulation work?

Each month, your ovaries release a single egg. The process starts with the production of estrogen and other hormones, which stimulate your ovaries’ follicles and get your body ready for ovulation. At the peak of your cycle, usually 12-18 days after your period finishes, your ovaries release an egg. The egg descends through the fallopian tubes and settles in your uterus. It will stay there for about 12-24 hours, which is your window for fertilization. If the egg isn’t fertilized in that period, your uterus will shed its lining, along with the egg.

When can I get pregnant?

It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when your body is ovulating, so you usually won’t be able to pick a specific day for conception. Keep in mind that you’ll usually be ovulating 12-18 days after the end of your period. If you have a very regular menstrual cycle, it will be easier to predict when you’re ovulating. Sperm can survive inside the body for up to 7 days, so women are the most fertile in the week leading up to ovulation. For the best chance of conception, you should have sex regularly starting around the 10th or 11th day of your cycle and continuing through the 18th. It’s possible, but less likely, to get pregnant outside of this window.

Are there ways to tell when I’m ovulating?

The most tried-and-true method of figuring out whether you’re ovulating is by checking your body temperature. Your temperature increases slightly (usually by just 0.5-1 degrees) when you have just ovulated. To use this method, you’ll need to start tracking your temperature over time. Make sure that you measure it at the same time each day, ideally in the morning when you’ve just woken up. Gradually, you’ll be able to see your body’s pattern and more accurately predict when you’ll be ovulating. You can also try an ovulation predictor kit, which measures hormones in your urine to predict when ovulation is about to start. These tools can be a big help in determining when is the best time to conceive.

Average Time to Get Pregnant

If you’re trying to conceive, there’s probably one top question on your mind: how long will it take to get pregnant? Unfortunately, there’s no one set answer, as it can vary depending on your health, age, reproductive health, and how often you’re having sex. Many couples can expect to conceive within a year, but that’s not the case for everyone. Below, we break down the statistics and discuss when you should consider fertility tests.

How Long Does It Take to Get Pregnant?

This number varies, so it’s important not to compare yourself to other couples and expect the same results. A 2002 study done in the journal Human Reproduction studied 346 women who were trying to get pregnant over one year. 38% of the women got pregnant within 1 month, 68% within 3 months, 81% within 6 months, and 92% within 12 months. The remaining 8% did not conceive during the first year. Some couples can take up to 2 or 3 years to conceive.

What Can Make Conception Take Longer?

A number of factors can affect your fertility. Age is one of the biggest of these. For women, fertility can begin to drop beginning in their 30s. For men, fertility typically doesn’t decline until about 50. Lifestyle factors can also make conception more or less likely. Smoking, excessive drinking, and high levels of caffeine can all inhibit fertility. Being unhealthy or significantly overweight can also make conceiving harder. In addition, many women trying to conceive are coming off of birth control. It typically takes a full cycle (or about a month) for your body to return to normal and baby-readiness after you stop taking birth control.

When Should You See a Fertility Specialist?

Before you start trying to conceive, you should visit your doctor for a general checkup and inform them that you are trying to get pregnant. They can make sure that you are healthy and that your body is ready for a baby. However, most couples do not have any fertility tests performed when they start trying to conceive. Typically, you can wait until you’ve been trying for a year. Then, the two of you may want to visit a fertility specialist to see whether you have any fertility problems. If you do, you may want to pursue treatment options to help you have a baby. If you are trying to conceive at 35 or older, you should visit a fertility specialist if you haven’t conceived within 6 months. This ensures that you don’t waste any of your precious time.

“The great thing is I am pregnant, we still can’t believe it”

Conceive Plus testimonial

Hello, wish I could share my Conceive Plus testimonial on Facebook but unfortunately for some personal reasons I can’t. I just want to say thank you to this team for making my family happy. About 7 weeks ago the Conceive Plus came up on my Facebook page and I read through it and after one week I showed it to my husband who also read about it and purchased it on eBay. Our only child is 4years and we have been trying for another one I have got proof from NHS. We bought and used this product in July 2016 which is last month during my ovulation period and we only used 2 which I was upset because we dint order on time.

The great thing is I am pregnant, we still can’t believe it. Unfortunately, I can’t share on Facebook because we still have to keep it secret as I haven’t even registered at the hospital. I just really want to say a Big Big thank you to Conceive Plus. Hope one day I will be able to share my testimony as this is real and it definitely works. Thank you so much for putting smiles on peoples faces, we as a family are so delighted. I was so excited that I had to call my GP yesterday August 9th 2016 to share the news as he referred me to Queen’s Hospital to do a test which would have been the 26th day of my period. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are so filled with joy.

How to Exercise to Increase Your Fertility

When you’re trying to conceive, there are so many details that affect your body, and therefore your fertility. How much you exercise can be one of those things. Regular, light exercise can help to keep your body healthy and support reproductive functions. Too much intense exercise, on the other hand, can actually decrease fertility and may increase the risk of ovulation disorders. The key is to find balance; moderate exercise to maintain a healthy weight and keep your body baby-ready.

Finding the Right Weight

Being either overweight or underweight can negatively affect your fertility. Ideally, you want to be between a BMI of 18.5 and 24.9, or a body fat percentage between 12% and 30%. Being either under or above a healthy weight can disrupt your body’s hormone production and ovulation, making it harder to conceive. If you are unsure whether you are in a healthy range, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor. Then you can adjust your diet and exercise to reach a healthy weight that will be good for both conceiving and supporting a baby.

Exercising to Make a Healthy Body

Moderate exercise can improve your fertility in a handful of ways. It improves your blood flow, which is essential for reproduction, and improves your muscle mass, which in turn helps to support your reproductive organs. Exercise also improves your strength and stamina, which will help you through a healthy and comfortable pregnancy. In addition, exercise is a great way to reduce stress, which is good not only for your general health, but to keep your hormones stable for conception. If you don’t typically exercise much, now is a good time to get started. Begin with light, simple exercise such as walking and stretching so that you can build up gradually. Ideally, you’ll want to work up to about 150 minutes of exercise a week, which you can break down into 5 30-minute exercise. Every person’s body is different, however, so you may want to consult with a doctor or personal trainer for some individualized recommendations.

Setting Limits

If you’re an athlete, it’s possible you’ll need to tone down your exercise in order to boost your fertility. Intensive exercise can slow hormone production and produce extra ammonia, both of which can interfere with conception. If you’re committed to your spin class or regularly competing in road races, you may need to scale back. As a general rule, you should keep workout sessions to under one hour and include some rest days in your schedule. It might be hard to adjust  if you’re used to intense exercise, but keep in mind that you  can return to your athletic regimen after having a baby.

Fertility-Friendly Exercises

Many kinds of exercise can be beneficial to fertility. Moderate cardio such as walking, jogging, swimming, and aerobics classes are great for getting your blood pumping without extreme impact. Yoga and pilates are perfect for reducing stress and building core strength. Strength training, such as lifting weights, a couple of times a week is also a good way to build strength and stamina. Look for kinds of exercise that will make you feel a little out of breath, but not over-exerted.

Tips to boost your fertility

The time to start working toward a healthy pregnancy is before you conceive. If you are trying to get pregnant quick, our pregnancy tips are good start to boost your fertility and  get your body ready for conception process.

Say no to alcohol and cigarettes

Several Scientific studies have proven that excessive consumption of alcoholic drinks and cigarettes can reduce man’s sperm quality and quantity. It is advised to exclude it from your and your partner’s daily diet when trying to conceive. But if abstinence is not possible then it is advised to reduce it to the strict minimum.
The most important is exclude drinking and smoking during the second half of your cycle. Because that’s when you might be pregnant. If on the other hand you experience a period as normal, there’s little harm in drinking sensibly in accordance with medical guidelines.

Lack of essential nutrients

It has also been proved that deficiency in vitamins such as iron and vitamin D can prevent women from ovulation. If you have polycystic syndrome you are likely to have a low shortage of vitamin D. Some women with polycystic syndrome are exposed to deficiency in vitamin D. So it is recommended to eat more fatty fish (such as salmon,tuna, and mackerel), eggs and drink cow’s milk to increase vitamin D in your body. But organ meats like liver and giblets, oysters, soybeans, pumpkin seeds, spinach and lentils are good source of iron.
Also, low shortage of iodine can be said to weaken the performance of the thyroid gland as it is one of the major cause of infertility, a study even said that 50% of patient that suffer from infertility have shortage of iodine. A solution to this is taking an iodine supplement to counter the deficiency.

Good fats and bad fats

Trans fats (found primarily in foods such as commercial baked and snack foods, animal products, french fries and some margarines) increase insulin resistance. Insulin helps move glucose from the bloodstream to the cells; resistance means it’s harder to move glucose into the cells. The pancreas keeps pumping out more insulin anyway, and the result is more insulin in your bloodstream. High insulin levels cause a lot of metabolic disturbances that affect ovulation. Bad fats should be excluded from your diet. Instead, it is advisable to consume good fats such as:

  • Monounsaturated fatty acids – Found in plant foods like nuts, avocados, olive oil, and canola oil, and in poultry
  • Polyunsaturated fatty acids – Found in fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel, and corn and soybean oils
  • Ok-in-moderation fat – Found in meat and dairy products such as cheese, butter, and milk

Caffeine

One study showed that women who drank more than one cup of coffee a day were half as likely to become pregnant per cycle as compared to women who consumed less. Another study in patients undergoing in vitro fertilisation (IVF) demonstrated that women who consumed even modest amounts of caffeine (50 mg) were likely to have decreased live birth rates.

Although researchers haven’t been able to find a clear connection between moderate caffeine intake and fertility problems, the answer may be related to the ability of caffeine to influence the quality of the developing oocyte (egg). It’s generally considered safe to consume 200 to 300 milligrams (mg) of caffeine daily while trying to conceive. That’s up to two 8-ounce cups of coffee for a weak brew. If you get more than that, it might be a good idea to cut back.
