So, you’re looking to get pregnant. You may be one of the lucky few who manages to conceive on the first try, but more likely you’ll need to wait a few months for the magic to really happen. For every healthy cycle you have, you have a one in four chance of getting pregnant, not a 5050 chance. Despite that, you do need to do some things to encourage a speedy conception.

If you find after a year that it’s not happening for you and your partner and you want some further investigation, you may look at other options to help you to get pregnant quicker, such as IVF, egg donation or even sperm donation. There are some tips out there that can help you to get pregnant faster, but your odds will still really remain the same as one in four healthy women with ovaries will get pregnant the first time. 

  1. Wean off of birth control. If you are on any kind of hormonal birth control pills or IUDs or implants, you need to wean off of these first. It can actually be helpful to stop these for a few months before you do try to conceive, because then you’ll be able to figure out whether or not your body has had a negative reaction to the additional hormones in your body overtime. Speak to your doctor before you come off of your birth control, just in case it needs to be a slow process.
  2. Figure out your cycle. Did you know that most women do not have a standard 28 day cycle? In fact, some women will ovulate between day eight and day sixteen of their cycles, or potentially later if they have longer or more irregular cycles. It can help to track your periods for about 6 months before you decide to conceive, because you can then determine how long your cycles are and when you roughly ovulate. If you want to get a bit more technical, you can learn what fertile mucus looks like and determine what symptoms you have during your fertile times of the month versus your upcoming period.
  3. Make sure that you are having regular sex. An easy tip to get pregnant fast is to make sure that you are having sex at least every one to three days of your cycle. So every second or third day, make sure that you’re doing the deed. Sperm can live up to five days in the right conditions, but an egg will only live for 24 hours after it’s released, so you need to have the sperm in situ to be able to catch that egg.
  4. Get sex creative. This is supposed to be fun, right? So why not get creative and take a look at some of the positions you could use to optimize conception. As long as you are making sure that you also have an additional orgasm after he has his, you should be able to improve your chances of conception.
