Boosting Your Chances at Getting Pregnant
Oftentimes, most women will be so excited to conceive and as soon as they have reached an agreement with their spouses to have a next child, they will make all efforts to ensure that this happens in their next cycle. The fact that many seem to be oblivious of is the fact that getting pregnant can actually take them some time. It has even been established that for a healthy 30 year old woman, the odds of conception in a month are as low as being at 20% chance. This is actually said to be even the longer for some, it taking months on end for the conception to come through and as such you shouldn’t be surprised when such a thing happens. In the event that you just can’t wait for you to have your conception, here are a few tricks to up your chances.
Going by what we may have had inculcated into us from schooling, and one that shouldn’t quite be leading in such a setting and debate, is that idea that conceiving for a child is just as simple and one thing that actually succeeds “naturally” or automatically an act of sex. The reality is that this is one thing that actually can get to be a little bit more complex. From the basic understanding of the whole issue, what we understand is the fact that in each and every month there is a series of hormonal changes that occur in a woman’s body that cause an egg in the ovary to grow and mature. The other fact that you need to mind is the fact that this cycle actually differs in all women and it actually is never uniform. This is a process that oftentimes takes a period of two weeks on average and it is often signaled by the onset of the woman’s menstrual period. Post the maturity of the egg, the next process that follows is ovulation which is basically the release of the egg from the ovaries into the fallopian tube and toward the uterus. Remember the fact that the egg after it is out of the uterus and into the fallopian tube or uterus, will only be viable for fertilization for a period of a maximum of 24 hours. In case the egg is fertilized by a sperm cell within such a time span, then it will keep travelling down to the uterus and then get attached to the uterine lining.
What as a woman looking for ways of adding to the odds of conception is to ensure that they get to have intercourse in the periods during and before the ovulation phase. This is so as to ensure that there will be sperm cells in the fallopian tube waiting to fertilize the egg whenever they will be released.
