Whatever the case is if it’s going to happen there is what is requisite for the pregnancy to take place. Here are some of the important things one needs to know and some of the ways one can obtain help from medical experts.

First, conception is based on a series of certain events. The series begin with having sex and end when pregnancy occurs. That is to mean when fertilization takes Place in the fallopian tube. Monthly, eggs are released from the ovaries. This is called ovulation. The egg moves to the fallopian tube where conception takes place. So if one want to conceive the days leading ovulation are the best; This is usually the fertility period. (use our ovulation calculator) However for most women to tell when ovulation is to take place is like hitting a moving target. At this time, regular sex is advisable at least three times during the fertility period. However the sperms have to be healthy.

When going for a fertility lubricant it should be healthy both to the body as well as to the sperms. A fertility friendly lubricant is suitable with the eggs, embryo development and the sperms.

Preparing for Pregnancy

Are you preparing for pregnancy? If you are planning to start a family in the near future, it’s a good idea to prepare yourself, mentally and physically, in order to give yourself the best start towards a healthy pregnancy, birth and baby! Below are a few tips and ideas on what you can do before starting to try to conceive.

Diet

Now is a good time to assess your diet. Stock your body up with all the nutrients it needs for a healthy pregnancy. A good rule of thumb to follow is two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables every day, including green, leafy vegetables. Foods rich in calcium, iron and protein are essential. Protein-rich foods include beans, meat, poultry, seeds and nuts. Iron-rich foods include lean red meat, fish, whole meal breads, cereals, poultry, legumes and green, leafy vegetables. Limit your fish intake to no more than two servings a week. Stick to varieties low in mercury such as sardines, salmon, farm-raised rainbow trout and herring. Avoid large amounts of caffeine, as there has been some links to miscarriage. Replace coffees and sodas with water.
It is recommended that folic acid intake should be increased in the three months leading up to conception. And also throughout the pregnancy. This lowers the chances of the baby developing neural tube defects, such as spina bifida by up to 50–70%. It can be found in green, leafy vegetables and whole grains, but prenatal supplements are also available to ensure daily requirements are met.

Exercise

For some women, it can prove difficult to fall pregnant if their weight or BMI (body mass index) is either too high or too low. If you are able to reach a healthy weight prior to conception, there is likely to be fewer complications down the track. It is not advised to start new rigorous exercise regimes once you are pregnant, but keeping active is important. By following a healthy exercise program before conceiving, it will be easier to continue it into the pregnancy. This involves at least thirty minutes of moderate exercise (i.e. increasing your heart rate), such as walking, running, swimming, cycling or weight training. Speak to your healthcare provider first about the best way to reach your healthy weight.

Lifestyle

If you smoke, now is the time to stop. It has severe impacts on your own health, and it can affect your fertility, and if you do fall pregnant it is likely to create health implications on your baby. If your partner smokes, his semen volume could be decreased and the number of healthy sperm produced is lowered, so it is also an ideal time for him to quit too. Recreational drugs can also lead to fertility issues and birth defects, and it can take a while for them to leave your system.

Now is also an ideal time to look at your financial situation. Raising a child is expensive, and if you plan to leave work, short-term or long-term, start planning and saving now. Research the costs involved in pregnancy and delivery, and consider taking out health insurance if you don’t already have it.

It may not happen as soon as you would like, the time it takes to fall pregnant in recent years has increased so you want to do everything you can to ensure you are on the right path. Conceive Plus fertility lubricant is FDA cleared and developed by Doctors to help the conception process. It contains calcium and magnesium ions, essential for the fertilization process. Find out how Conceive Plus can assist you when TTC trying to conceive.

5 Creative Ways Countries Tried to Up Their Birth Rates

As we shared in our previous post the birth rate of many countries is decreasing – especially after the hit of the global economic crisis. Some countries have taken up the problem very seriously and launched creative campaigns to encourage their citizens to become parents.

If you don’t believe, check out the Danish campaign ‘Do It for Danemark’ created by a local company but still serving the idea of the public good of making more Danes.

SINGAPORE

The Singapore authorities decided in collaboration with the company Mentos to create a campaign called the “National Nights”. Aiming to push the people to patriotism in order to increase the birth rate of 0.78 per woman.

The City also took to problem to a higher level by attacking directly the urban development authorities to limit the number of small one-bedrooms flat. Not only that but a big Monterian compensation was unblocked in order to support the initiative and the couples willing to help their country. The package included 15.000$ for each child, tax incentives and extended maternity leave.

SOUTH KOREA

Due to the “small families program” that was developed in the 70’s, today the birth rate in South Korea has fallen to one of the lowest in the world. With the increase of the economic difficulties, the birth rate felt to 1.2 children per family.

In order to encourage the South Korean to have more babies the government has promised to have lower university tuition fees and state-run child care.

Other incentives included giving away cash vouchers and other gifts to workers. In 2010 the ‘Family day’ was established which required all offices to close at 7 pm and in that way pushing people to spend more time with their families.

RUSSIA

The Russian population is decreasing very rapidly since the 90’s due to the high death rate and the low birth rate. That motivated the government to launch the ‘have a baby and win a Fridge’ campaign. September 12 was declared ‘the Day of Conception’ and all women that would give birth 9 months after would win a fridge, money or even cars for the national day which is on 12 June.

JAPAN

The population of Japan is on the way to “extinction” with less than 1.39 children per woman. A student of the university of Tsukuba invented a baby robot that is acting like a real baby. The aim of the robot is not to replace real babies but to trigger the parental instincts and push people to make their own babies.

ROMANIA

In the 60’s the population of Romania was approaching zero population growth, which was a real disaster for the Communist idea.

Sanctions were taken for people over 25 years old that were childless. Abortions and divorce where practically impossible, pregnancy test import was halted and some tax & monetary incentives were given. These Draconian measures did not hold on for long since economic compensation were barely enough to buy a bit of milk. The revolution ended it in 1989.

Whatever the situation your country is facing, if you are willing to help with the patriotic act, Conceive Plus is available all over the world through the amazing invention of internet. No excuses – we also give you a free delivery wherever you are in the world.

Tamworth mum’s advice to any woman trying to conceive

A TAMWORTH woman who feared she would never have children because of a medical condition has come forward to tell her ‘story with a happy ending’, in a bid to give hope to other women.

Amanda and Mark Taylor are proud parents to five-month-old Lucas following IVF treatment.

Amanda (38) spent years suffering the painful and debilitating condition of endometriosis, before the birth of Lucas in October, following IVF treatment at Midland Fertility in Aldridge.

She told the Herald: “I’d like to say to other women suffering with endometriosis, don’t suffer in silence, speak to your GP to ensure you are getting the best advice possible for living with this illness, especially if you want to have a family at some point – it may be essential to act sooner rather than later.

“For those with endometriosis and currently trying to conceive, I would say don’t give up hope and if it’s not happening naturally then speak to your GP about your options before it’s too late.”

Endometriosis affects over 1.5 million women in the UK.

The condition means that cells like the ones that line the uterus grow elsewhere in the body.

These cells respond to a monthly cycle and cause pain, inflammation and scar tissue and make conception very difficult.

Amanda was referred for fertility treatment in March 2012 after trying to conceive for six years and following a history of recurring endometrial cysts, for which she had undergone numerous surgical procedures including a partial removal of her left ovary and the complete removal of one of her fallopian tubes.

After a failed first cycle of treatment Amanda underwent further surgery to remove yet more endometriotic cysts.

Following her recovery Amanda and Mark began a second treatment cycle in November 2012 which resulted in the positive pregnancy test that had eluded them so far.

Amanda said: “It had been such a long journey. I never thought I would ever be lucky enough to have a family. Since Lucas has arrived I feel blessed every day.”

“Endometriosis manifests itself in a variety of ways so diagnosis can be difficult and often delayed,” said Dr Abey Eapen, clinical lead at Midland Fertility.

“Recent research shows that there is now an average of seven and a half years between a woman first seeing a GP about her symptoms and receiving a firm diagnosis.

“Early recognition of the symptoms is vital so women can get a referral for fertility treatment if necessary.

“And there’s good evidence that pregnancy following IVF can ‘cure’ endometriosis so that the woman can conceive naturally again in the future.

“We’re delighted for Amanda and Mark about the birth of Lucas and are sure that her story will bring hope to other women who are living with endometriosis.”

If you are trying to get pregnant, using Conceive Plus fertility lubricant can help increase the chances, naturally. Use in place of your regular lube, Conceive Plus is a gentle lubricant that actually helps the process of conception. Find where to buy here

Stress Can Damage Fertility in Men, Not Just Women

Just because a woman cannot conceive does not always mean that it is her fault since stress can damage men’s fertility, as well. Infertility among men can be a very — ahem — touchy subject because most men are less likely to seek a physician’s help if they are stressed or ill. This is not just speculation or some bar talk.

According to WebMD, a survey of 1,100 men for the American Academy of Family Physicians showed that about 85 percent of the men who surveyed said that they would seek medical treatment if they are ill. Most of the sample — 92 percent — said that they would wait a few days to see if the illness goes away before seeing a doctor. Men with infertility problems may also have a fear of having their masculinity judged, which decreases their likelihood of seeking help.

In men, stress can interfere with hormones that affect sperm production and development, which reduces the odds of sperm to reach and fertilize the ovum. The American Fertility Association (AFA) states that infertility can also cause stress, which leads to a never-ending cycle of emotional drama, including depression, low self-esteem and relationship problems with their significant other.

There is strong evidence that shows the correlation between sperm quality and quantity and the amount of stress men have. A 2008 study among 744 men that was conducted at the University of Massachusetts showed that men who had more than two stressful events in their lives had a significantly lower sperm count than men who had fewer than two stressful events in their lives.

Sperm-Donor-for-Lesbian-Couple-Ordered-to-Pay-Child-Support-feature

While current research provides much evidence in supporting the causes of women’s infertility, there is little spotlight on how stress can damage fertility in men. However, recent research from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Bydgoszcz, Poland, may shed some light. Researcher Jolanta Guz and her colleagues found that oxidative stress is a major factor in determining the amount and quality of sperm and accounts for half of all male infertility cases. Oxidative stress weakens the body’s ability to offset or neutralize the imbalance of free radical production, such as DNA and cell membrane damage. Therefore, it can decrease sperm motility, concentration and shape, which lead to a weaker chance of fertilizing the egg cell. In their report published July 12, 2013 in PLOS One, Guz and her colleagues wrote that abnormal sperm show high levels of oxidative stress, such as “excessive level of reactive oxygen species” and lower antioxidant content.

There is no single best way to deal with the damage from stress and fertility issues for men, although physicians have recommended regular exercise, a healthy diet and more open communication with their women. Some men may find that eating more dietary fiber, fruits and vegetables lift their mood. Some may find physical activity, such as jogging, yoga or salsa dancing, to calm the mind. Whatever the method may be, every man should find a way to deal with the cause of stress. Knowing is half the battle.

Big sperm don’t always win the race

When females mate with more than one male, each one’s sperm has to compete to get to her eggs. Until now, researchers had thought the fastest sperm would dominate.

But in a new study, published in Evolution, a team of scientists have found that it is much more complicated than that.

‘If you compare species with little sperm competition, like humans, with a species where there is a lot of sperm competition, like Bonobos, then the bonobos tend to have faster, bigger sperm,’ says Dr John Fitzpatrick of the University of Manchester, lead author on the paper. ‘But if you look within a species, you typically don’t see this relationship where bigger sperm are faster.’

Instead, the team found that bigger sperm – those with longer tails, called flagellum –were only the fastest in species with external fertilisation, such as fish or mussels. In animals with internal fertilisation, like emu, bigger sperm were often the slowest.

To analyse how fast the sperm were depending on their size, the researchers took video recordings of sperm swimming and then broke them down frame by frame using high speed cameras. They then deconstructed these frames into a stack of still images which could be entered into a computer programme to focus on a single sperm at a time.

They then used computer assisted sperm analysis – software also used in human fertilisation clinics – to assess sperm quality.

1-bigspermdont
‘In sperm with longer flagellum there’s more thrusting force to move sperm forward, and there we found clear results. A shorter head and bigger tail means you swim faster if you’re an externally fertilizing species, but if you have a bigger head and a smaller tail it seemed you swam faster if you were internally fertilizing,’ Fitzpatrick says.

2-bigspermdont
The researchers think that the reason bigger sperm swim slower in some internally fertilizing species is because they may be using a different strategy of moving slower but swimming for longer periods.

‘In externally fertilizing species you need to be fast as sperm don’t live long outside of the body, so they have to get to the egg quickly, whereas in internally fertilising species the sperm can hang around for longer. We think going slower is the sperm’s way of trying to conserve energy and taking its time to reach an egg,’ explains Fitzpatrick. ‘This may reflect the different ways that selection acts to make a successful sperm in internally versus externally fertilizing species. ‘

Birth rate in Europe

Polish mothers have more children once they come to Britain: Birth rate among migrants is two third higher here than in their homeland

  • Total fertility rate – average number of children they can expect to have – for Romanian women in England and Wales is 2.93
  • Among women in Romania it is only 1.25, and 1.84 for UK-born mothers
  • One in four babies is born to mothers born overseas

Birth rates among Polish women rise by two thirds when they move to Britain, official figures showed yesterday.

Those who migrated here after 2004 have an average of 2.13 children compared with the 1.30 level seen in their native land.

Romanians have enjoyed an even bigger baby boom – producing 2.93 children in Britain but only 1.25 back home.
