How can I increase my chances of getting pregnant?

Some lifestyle changes can improve your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy.

Diseases such as diabetes, asthma, obesity, and other problems can affect pregnancy.

More than 80% of couples in the general population become pregnant within one year if they do not use contraceptives and have no regular sex (every 2 or 3 days).

Of those who do not get pregnant in the first year, about half will take place in the second year.

Healthy weights:

Low weight or obesity can affect your chances of conception.

Too much or too little body fat can cause you irregular periods or stop them completely, which can affect your ability to get pregnant.

Women with a BMI over the age of 30 or under 19 may have difficulty getting pregnant.

If your partner's BMI is above 30, your fertility may be lower than normal.

Alcohol and smoking:

British medical directors recommend that if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, the safest approach is not to drink alcohol at all to minimize the risk to your child.

Your partner should not drink more than 14 units of alcohol per week, which must be evenly distributed for 3 days or more, Excessive alcohol consumption can affect sperm quality.

Smoking, including second-hand smoke, can reduce women's fertility.

If you smoke and need help quitting:

Your family doctor will let you know.

There is also a link between smoking and poor quality sperm, although the effect on male fertility is not sure, quitting smoking will improve your partner's overall health.

There is no clear evidence of a link between caffeine found in beverages such as coffee, tea and cola, and fertility problems.

A number of prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and recreational drugs interfere with male and female fertility, Talk to your family doctor if you are affected.

The best time to get pregnant:

The ovary releases one or more eggs, and if the sperm meets, you may become pregnant, and ovulation usually occurs 14 days after the start of the cycle.

An egg lives about 12-24 hours after release, To get pregnant, a sperm must fertilize the egg within this time, Sperm can live up to 7 days in your body.

To have the best chance of success, you need to have sex every 2 to 3 days a month, you don't need time to match the days when you have protein.

Complications and help:

Talk to your family doctor if you have tried for a child for more than a year without success.
