Oftentimes conceiving a baby can seem next to impossible. Months and sometimes even years pass by, in trying all possible ways to conceive but in vain.
However there are a certain things that would do you good to consider if you are having trouble conceiving. First of all, you must keep your cool and avoid frustrating yourself because trust me you, this is a very common problem among several married couples so you are not alone.
The problems may not always be too critical but something pretty minor and easily solvable, provided it is fixed at the root.
So if you are one of those women who are having difficulties in getting pregnant then take a look at these few reasons as to why you’re probably not being able to conceive.
ARE YOU HAVING ENOUGH SEX?
Having sex on a regular basis is required to secure the maximum chances of pregnancy. Sex especially during the period when you’re ovulating can lead to effective conception.
YOU COULD BE MORE STRESSED THAN NECESSARY
Stress during pregnancy is natural but too much stress can affect the building blocks of your baby’s physical and mental development causing a stall in your being able to conceive.
The stress hormone cortisol can be diluted by the amino acid called tryptophan, which is released by foods like eggs, fish, nuts, yogurt, and cheese and so on. Light exercise too can be beneficial in reducing stress which not only curbs your chances of getting pregnant but also comes in the way of cognitive development of your child.
ARE YOU WASHING YOURSELF OFF RIGHT AFTER SEX
We might feel the urge to wash ourselves right after sex, because we feel messy but the proper idea is to let the ‘mess’ seep in before it falls out or is washed off from the system.
Make sure to lie down for at least 20 to 30 minutes before you get up to wash.
ARE YOU ROUTING FOR ALCOHOL AND CIGARETTES ON A REGULAR BASIS?
Both alcohol and cigarettes have the potential to affect the reproductive system, rendering it unfit to produce or carry a baby. Hence it is important that one takes extra care in order to maintain a healthy reproductive system by reducing on one’s alcohol and nicotine content.
ARE YOUR UNDERGARMENTS WAY TOO TIGHT?
It is important that you let your private parts breathe freely, fitting them in comfortable underclothes. Tight undergarments that stick too close can hinder in the production of sperm and may accelerate chances of infection.
ARE YOU INDULGING IN EXCESSIVE WORK OUTS?
Being both overweight and underweight can get in the way of pregnancy. Hence while a bit of regular working out is important to maintain health, over working of the body can cut down excessive body fat and disrupt the menstrual cycle.
Keeping these few issues in mind might improve your chances of getting pregnant, unless you have some serious medical conditions, which of course you’d find out once you visit your gynaecologist.
But since you’re here, reading this article, I presume you do not have any specific medical condition obstructing your pregnancy and hence you’re wondering what could then be wrong.
I hope you’ve found the answers to your questions here and I earnestly hope for them to work in your favour. All the very best and do feel free to share with us stories about your pregnancy.
