If you’re ready to try for a baby, but aren’t sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. Before you try fertility treatments, it’s important to try as much as you can to improve your fertility on your own. The following tips may help you conceive, or simply give you a better chance of having successful fertility treatments.
So, keep reading for some easy ways to improve your fertility as a woman.
Track of your basal body temperature
Your basal body temperature helps you identify whether you’re ovulating or not. This is an important thing to determine and understand, especially if you’ve been trying to conceive for a while. Taking your temperature at the same time every day will help you understand when you’re ovulating, or if you have irregular ovulation which should then be looked at by a doctor.
Getting to know your body can truly help you understand when you’re most fertile. The mucus from your cervix changes throughout your cycle, and the way it appears indicates what is going on with your body at the corresponding time. When your mucus looks and feels like egg whites (stretchy, sticky, and clear) then you’re at your most fertile. Also, did you know that the more mucus you have, the better chances you have of becoming pregnant? Understanding your mucus and tailoring your sexual schedule may be able to help you increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Especially when it comes to your weight, staying healthy can actually help you boost your fertility. Being underweight or overweight can impact your menstrual cycle, making it harder for you to conceive. If your BMI (body mass index) is out of the healthy range, consider seeing a doctor to help you make a plan to move into the healthy range.
Staying hydrated is not only good for your skin or digestion, it’s also really good for your fertility. When you’re hydrated, your cervical fluid works optimally, sending sperm to the egg to fertilize.
