The joy of having a baby and becoming a mother form a significant part of every woman’s dreams. However, our past-paced lives may often impede such dreams and getting pregnant may require some effort.

getting pregnantThere are certain procedures that can be adopted by a couple planning to have a baby to make their chances of conception more fruitful. From timing intercourse to taking prenatal vitamins, here is a guide on getting pregnant fast and easy.

  • Time menstrual cycle: One of the most important steps to conceive fast involves timing the menstrual cycle. Women, who have regular monthly menstrual cycles, following every 28 days, can easily figure out their ovulation date by counting 14 days from the first day of the period. Ovulation calendar as well as an ovulation calculator can help calculating the exact ovulation date.
  • The right position: Ensure a desirable position during sexual intercourse to get pregnant fast and easy. A woman should avoid being on top of the partner or in a standing position as the sperm is likely to flow out of the vagina. Besides, do not use of scented tampons, vaginal sprays and artificial lubricants. This is because they can cause infections and remove cervical mucus. After sexual intercourse, place the hip region on a raised platform like a pillow for five to ten minutes to increase the possibilities of getting pregnant.
  • Texture and volume of cervical mucus: When a woman is ovulating, the cervical mucus would be high in texture and volume. If the mucus is clear, slippery and thick, the woman is most fertile.
  • Follow a healthy lifestyle: Women who look forward to getting pregnant should follow healthy lifestyle habits in order to heighten the possibilities of conception. A balanced diet helps both men and women to manage the production of hormones. An imbalance in dietary practices can mar the man’s ability to produce fertile sperms and similarly, lead to a rise in oestrogen levels in women. Such hormonal imbalance may diminish the chances of the woman conceiving considerably. 
  • Reduce stress: It is important for both the partners to avoid stress while they are planning a baby. Stress can lead to hormonal changes in both men and women.
  • Folic Acid: Folic acid (B vitamin) intake by women heightens the chances of conception. Naturally, folic acid can be liberally found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and asparagus. Beetroot is another natural source of folic acid. In addition, folic supplements can also be taken. However, it is always better to consult your doctor before you start taking any supplement.


In addition to following the aforementioned tips, women who seek to get pregnant fast and easy should quit unhealthy lifestyle practices such as smoking, drugs and alcohol.


Exercise daily and eat right to make pregnancy an achievable dream!
