getting pregnant

So, you’ve said to yourself ‘I want to get pregnant’, but are confused about when to try. Most people go through this, and making the decision to get pregnant in the first place is one of the biggest of your whole life. Now you’ve decided, it’s time to remember that getting pregnant may not be as easy or as quick as you expect it to be.

You can start trying right away, but if you want to get pregnant then there are a few factors you should bear in mind. You should also know that there is no miracle cure as to how to get pregnant fast – it can take time so try to prepare yourself for that.

Are You Really Ready?

I know how easy it can be to rush into things, but I was careful to stop down and think about whether I was really ready, even though I knew I wanted to get pregnant. This included thinking about my home and weather it was ready for a child, and whether I could stay at home to look after a child, whether I could afford it.

The Best Chance of Getting Pregnant

So now you’ve decided you’re really ready it’s time to give you the best possible chance! I’m not telling you how to get pregnant fast – there’s no way of knowing – but I am telling you how you could improve things.

Talk to your doctor to make sure you’re in good shape, they might give you some advice like easing stress or whether it’s safe to get pregnant (if you’ve had any past medical problems).

Unfortunately all of this isn’t quite as exciting as I had first thought, as there’s a lot of science behind getting pregnant. But it’s a good thing to understand the process, as it can take months before you’re pregnant. Just don’t give up!

Are you trying to get pregnant? When I was trying, I had been on the pill a long time. Since it seemed to be hard getting pregnant, and I was getting fed up of one failed pregnancy test after another, I had often wondered whether the pill was interfering.

Do You have to Wait Before You Try to Get Pregnant?

When I spoke to my doctor about this, he informed me that I should try to wait at least a few months before even trying to get pregnant. It was disappointing to hear this, but in some ways it was reassuring since, even though I’d been trying for months, those first few months were unlikely to be successful in the first place.

I wouldn’t recommend trying straight away like I did – I learned afterwards that your body takes time to get ready for pregnancy. Also, I’d definitely advise talking to your own doctor for some expert advice.

Can the Pill Stop Me From Getting Pregnant?

You don’t have to worry that the pill will leave you infertile – it won’t! This was definitely my biggest fear. The main problem is getting back to regular periods, but this usually only takes a few months. Within this time I started to take prenatal vitamins to help improve my body in preparation for trying to get pregnant.

It is important to realise that it can take longer than three months to get back to your most fertile – I certainly think this was the case for me. Don’t rush, as this can cause you stress and make things even harder.

And remember, if you do end up getting pregnant straight after coming off the pill then that also isn’t a bad thing! It didn’t happen for me, but it does happen for some – and your pregnancy should run perfectly smoothly.

I know what it’s like to constantly ask yourself why you can’t get pregnant, which is why I think it’s important to learn some solid pregnancy information. Once you do, you’ll realise that getting pregnant isn’t as easy as most of us think! I certainly didn’t realise just how hard it can be.

Don’t Be Disappointed!
I was very disappointed when I didn’t get pregnant straight away – and I think that expecting to get pregnant straight away was my main problem. It isn’t likely at all that you’ll get pregnant within a month or two – so know this from the start and it’ll be a lot easier than it was for me!

When Do Most Couples Get Pregnant?
Most pregnancy information shows that couples usually get pregnant within the first year, and often it takes up to 18 months. During this time you probably won’t need any help getting pregnant, and most doctors won’t offer it to you. This is because it’s perfectly normal, though I must admit it took me a while to accept this fact.

Note: Even though it normally takes a while, if you have a history of certain medical conditions that can affect conception, then you may need help getting pregnant and should contact a professional.

So, if you start trying knowing these facts it can make things a lot easier! Just remember:

Only a quarter of fertile couples, actively trying to conceive, will get pregnant during the first cycle.
60% of couples will get pregnant within 6 months,
75% will get pregnant within 9 months,
And 90% will get pregnant within 18 months.

It might seem a long time to wait a year and a half (believe me – I know!) but when it does happen it will be worth the wait!

Getting pregnant isn’t instant – it means taking time to understand the process, and talking to your doctor for help. We’ve all been there, it just takes some courage and patience while you wait.
