Why can’t I get pregnant? There are many reasons why a woman can’t conceive. But don’t let the frustration and disappointment of not getting pregnant get to you just yet. There are steps you can take to boost your chances of conceiving and these methods may even help you reverse a number of fertility barriers you might not even be aware of.
1. Why can’t I get pregnant? Have you planned ahead?
Have you been taking birth control and have recently stopped? Be aware that it can take months or even a year for your body to become fertile after taking birth control. It has been reported that a great percentage of women have had a difficult time getting pregnant months after discontinuing birth control pills. And it takes even longer for women who have stopped taking birth control shots to get pregnant. So the precise length of time for your body to become fertile again depends greatly on what method of birth control you have been using.
It is essential, therefore, to plan ahead if you want to get pregnant. Do not expect to conceive immediately after trying to prevent getting pregnant for quite a period of time. Give your body some time to resume its normal reproductive system.
2. Why can’t I get pregnant? Do you have overall body weight issues?
It is a known fact that being overweight directly affects a woman’s fertility. It has also been reported that high levels of carbohydrates can significantly harm a woman’s reproductive system no matter how fit she may seem. So even if you have a normal body weight, reducing your daily carb consumption can help resolve undetected reproductive problems.
3. Why can’t I get pregnant? How much sex are you having?
In order to get pregnant naturally you have to be engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse. But did you know that too much sex can actually decrease your chances of getting pregnant? The fact is, if your partner has too much sex, which includes masturbation, it will diminish his sperm count. So to boost your chances of getting pregnant naturally, you and your partner should have sex only every other day on the week of your ovulation cycle. You can resume your daily intercourse schedule once you have successfully conceived.
4. Why can’t I get pregnant? What is your love-making position?
Yes it is true that there are certain sex positions that increase the likelihood of getting pregnant. The traditional, tried and tested man-on-top missionary position is the most ideal way to get pregnant. And put a pillow under your bottom while at it. This position allows for deep penetration so your partner’s swimmers need not travel far to reach your egg. If you or your partner does not enjoy this position, then all you have to do is assume this position before he climaxes.
5. Why can’t I get pregnant? Are you enjoying sex enough?
If you want to increase your chances of getting pregnant, you have to enjoy sex. Why? Your partner’s sperm has to travel a long way to fertilize your egg, and these swimmers instinctively swim against a current. So if there is not enough fluids traveling in the opposite direction your partner’s sperm is without direction making them uncertain which way to travel. The only safe and natural way to produce adequate fluid going the opposite direction the sperm is swimming is through achieving your climax. If this is not possible, you will still be able to provide adequate fluids by reaching a high enough state of arousal even if you do not reach orgasm.
These are very practical and doable techniques that may significantly increase your chances of getting pregnant. If you and your partner commit to doing it right, then you may be well on your way to becoming proud and happy parents.
