Tips for Increasing Chances of Conception

An important factor for all round health of a woman is her reproductive health. Thorough understanding of your reproductive health can make a big difference and improve the quality of life not only for you but also for the rest of your family. Reproductive health can be affected by many factors. Infections, cancer or sexually transmitted diseases are the more overt risks. Healthiness of the breasts is another important factor, as they are a fundamental part of reproduction.

They help to nourish the child during the early stages of it’s life. Cancer of the breast is a common factor. Regular checkups are essential for early detection and treatment of breast cancer. To start with, women should get to know about their reproductive organs and hormones and how they work together. Not only does your reproductive health affect your menstrual cycle, but it also has an effect on your chances of pregnancy. Other factors are her diet, age, overall health, lifestyle, living environment, overall health, genetics and use of medications. Simple steps such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy and going for regular checkups are enough to maintain good reproductive health. Men have their part to play too. When they are preparing for the baby, they should have a diet rich in zinc, cut down on their alcohol intake, and stop smoking. Both should eat organic foods. Organic food increases sperm count, and pesticides in inorganic food can pass through the placenta and affect the baby.

A woman should learn to chart her fertility. When she is healthy and feels emotionally ready to have a child, she should start to chart her fertility. A method of natural family planning, fertility awareness pays attention to key body signs and includes the checking of vaginal mucous and measurement of basal body temperature. Basal body temperature is measured by taking the temperature with a basal thermometer after you have woken up and before getting out of bed. It goes up by a few degrees just before ovulation and down again after ovulation. Vaginal mucous may be checked for the consistency. Stretchy mucous, like egg white is fertile mucous, and means you are just going to ovulate. Sex during this period increases the chances of conception. Check out books on fertility awareness. It is an acquired skill, and becomes easy after a while. Conception is akin to a spiritual process, and depends on your mental readiness to have a child amongst other things.

The matter should be absolutely clear and transparent between you and your partner, and both should be mentally ready to accept the child that is coming. At that point, make an overt declaration that you wish to become a parent. That and your newly acquired fertility awareness, coupled with good bodily health should ensure that you would conceive. The short message is that when you are ready to become a parent, get your heart, mind and body ready, and be prepared for the craziest ride of your life.
