Conception is preceded by various events. Every month you have ovulation. When the ovum separates the pregnancy is already possible – it should happen within 24 hours after ovulation. If the ovum is fertilized, a few days after it moves into the uterus. Your monthly cycle interrupts and begin to nurture the embryo.
What should you do?
To get pregnant easier, you’d better follow a few rules:
• have sex regularly – two or three times a week. Then the probability of becoming pregnant is greater.
• When approaching the date of ovulation it is better to have sex every day
• Maintain normal weight, do exercises and undergo less stress
• Take vitamins – folic acid (Vitamin B9) plays an important role in fetal development.
What not to do?
• Don’t smoke – nicotine prevents fertilization of the ovum.
• Avoid drinking alcohol
• Don’t take any medication unless you consult with a doctor – certain medicines can prevent pregnancy. Later, after you get pregnant some medicines can lead to miscarriage.
• It takes up to six months for most couples in which both partners are healthy to get pregnant. In about 85% of couples become pregnant within one year after the start of the trials. If after this period there is no positive result, it is good to see a doctor – a specialist in reproductive problems.
