Boosting Your Chances at Getting Pregnant
It is always the case that after a couple have so made up their mind to have their next baby, many women will be in a frenzied effort to conceive in the immediate period of their cycle after the decision. The fact that many seem to be oblivious of is the fact that getting pregnant can actually take them some time. In fact as per the facts established by studies, it is actually estimated that a healthy 30 year old woman will only have their odds of conception in a month standing at a 20% chance. Now this gives all the reasons for you to never be dismayed by the lingering delay in your odds for conception irrespective of the efforts so put so far. Should your case be such as not to be unable to wait to have your baby conceived, then the following is a look at some of the tips that will greatly help you up your odds at a conception.
From what we may have learnt in school and from other places, one may be excused for thinking that conceiving is such a simple thing which naturally follows a sexual intercourse. The reality is that this is one thing that actually can get to be a little bit more complex. Basically, in each and every month there is actually a series of changes in hormones that will cause a hormone 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. In most cases this takes a period of two weeks averagely and it typically kicks off with 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.
The secret to upping your chances of conception is to have intercourse in the days before and during this phase of ovulation. This is so as to ensure that there will be sperm cells in the fallopian tube to fertilize the eggs whenever it is that they will be released by the ovaries.
