8 Things To Know About Fertility Today
Becoming pregnant may sound simple, but for thousands of years it has provided a tender issue for those unable to conceive. Read on to understand why pregnancy is often so difficult for many.
Timing: Women can only become pregnant when they are ovulating. As a result, it's important for many couples having difficulty conceiving to know exactly when they are most fertile. The best way to do this is with a feminine fertility product. Traditionally these have been strips which women urinate on to determine when they are ovulating. Recently, technology has evolved to create an ovulation monitor that allows women to use their saliva to know when their bodies are most fertile. Ovulation occurs two weeks before the first day of bleeding. So for most women, knowing how long their cycle is and subtracting fourteen days from that allows them to have an accurate idea of when their ideal time of the month is.
Cycles: You have to have a cycle in order to be ovulating. If you ovulate less than every three weeks or greater than every thirty-five days, you have no menstrual cycle.
Sperm: The mobility, the morphology and the number of sperm are factors in becoming pregnant. It is difficult to determine these factors without visiting a fertility clinic.
Fallopian Tubes: The tubes have to be open in order for fertilization to occur. Chlamydia can scar the fallopian tubes and prevent them from opening. Endometriosis is another common problem that causes successful pregnancy.
Timing: Couples who have had unprotected sex for a year without conception are considered infertile. There is only about 20% chance of becoming pregnant at any given time of the month. Couples older than 35 should consider visiting a specialist after six months of unsuccessful conception.
Medical Problems: Diabetics can have issues conceiving. They should keep their blood sugar levels controlled for at least three months prior to conception. Being overweight or overweight is also a bad idea when trying to conceive. Making sure that tumors do not obstruct the uterus is also important.
Stress: This can severely impact a couple of chances of conceiving. It's why many couples wind up becoming pregnant after adoption, because they are finally mentally relaxed enough to conceive naturally. Similarly, factors that we associate with stress, or de-stressing, can also have an impact on a couple of chance to conceive, ie smoking, drinking, and too much caffeine.
Lymphatic drainage: Women who have been taking the pill for at least ten years require time to regulate their natural hormonal balance. By massaging their abdomens women can move excess fluid, hormones and other impurities out of their bodies, thereby boosting their immune systems and balancing their hormones.
Reflexology: Along with acupuncture, this science can prepare your body for conception by stimulating the reproductive system with more blood, and by lowering stress levels through the body.
These topics should help you prepare your body for pregnancy. The healthier you are, the healthier your chances are becoming pregnant and bringing a healthy baby into the world.
