Why can’t I get pregnant? Maybe you still haven’t been able to conceive because you have not been having intercourse at the right time. For you to get pregnant naturally and fast you have to know the exact date of your ovulation cycle and have sex with your partner when this occurs. A woman’s ovulation period usually lasts for about 5 to 7 days each month. And it is only during this time that your ovaries release an egg that is ready to be fertilized by your partner’s sperm.
It is easy to pinpoint exactly when you are ovulating if you have a regular menstrual period. Your ovulation cycle usually begins 14 days after the first day of your last menstruation. However, if you are irregular, there are several reliable methods to determine when you are ovulating available at your disposal. I will list down a number of ovulation detector methods, understand them well and pick one that you think will work best for you.
One of the best commercial devices that will help you monitor your ovulation and fertility levels is called an Ovulation Predictor Kit (OPK). This can be purchased at a local drugstore or a grocery near you. You can find such a kit next to the DIY pregnancy tests and family planning sections of your local drugstore or grocery. You have a variety of OPKs to choose from and each brand works slightly differently from the other. Read the labels so you can get an idea which of them would help you get pregnant naturally.
Another method you can utilize in determining your ovulation cycle is through self monitoring. Every time you are close to ovulating, your body will be sending out predictable signs. With the help of your partner, you can figure out these ovulation signs and you can then pinpoint exactly when you are fertile. On the week of your ovulation cycle, you and your partner should engage in sexual relations daily to ensure that you get pregnant naturally.
The first sign to look out for is the discharge inside of your vagina. The consistency of this discharge changes over the course of the month. Notice that there are days of the month when your vaginal discharge is thick and pasty, and at other times, it is slippery, thin and stretchy. While you are in the shower, test your discharge between two fingers. If you sense that that the mucus is less thick and more slippery, then expect your ovulation period to begin soon.
Another sign that you are close to ovulating is the change in the shape and position of your cervix. Your cervix is located at the direct opening of your uterus. Put 2 fingers into your vagina and feel the opening at the end. Usually, you could feel a hard pointed tip at the end of your vagina. However, when your ovulation is about to begin, this pointed tip will soften, shift its position higher up in the vagina, and it flattens out.
There are surefire signs that you are ovulating, thus, your body is ripe and ready to conceive. So stop asking the question “Why can’t I get pregnant.” Know exactly when your fertility window is during the month and have sexual intercourse everyday at this time. This would be the fastest and most natural way to get pregnant.
