Ovulation – Signs
Basal body temperature rising, typically 1/2 to 1 degree, measuring by a thermometer
Measuring on a home ovulation kit the higher levels of luteinizing hormone (LH)
Cervical mucus, or vaginal discharge, may look clearer, thinner, and stretchy, like raw egg whites
Slight pain or cramping in the side
Knowing when ovulating:
Ovulation usually occurs 14 days before the next period begins, but it can vary from month to month even in women who are having regular cycles. To get a better sense of when ovulating, basal body temperature and cervical mucus should be charted. An over-the-counter ovulation predictor kit may also be used to check for hormonal changes in the urine before ovulation.
Having sex often:
The odds of getting pregnant are best when having sex 1 to 2 days before ovulating. But cycles differ in length, and some women are not regular or the cycle may be miscalculated. The survival of the sperm in a woman’s body is for up to 5 days. To protect the bet, frequently have sex starting 3 days before ovulation and continue for 2 to 3 days after being ovulated.
Lying low after sex
it is said that after having sex, stay in bed for at least 15 minutes to give sperm a chance to reach the egg. However, recent researches have found no evidence to back up this claim.
Maintaining a healthy weight:
Studies show that people who are overweight or underweight may have disrupted ovulation and affect production of key hormones. A range of a healthy body mass index is between 18.5 and 24.9. Moderate exercise is fine for staying fit, but this isn’t the time for training for a marathon: Intense exercise can mess with the menstrual cycle, making it hard for conceiving.
Research has shown that taking stress may make it difficult to get pregnant. To help in lowering stress and improving the overall well-being try doing yoga, meditation and long walks.
Managing medical conditions.
Medical condition such as diabetes, asthma, or epilepsy, should be kept under control. The doctor should be informed about any prescription or over-the-counter medications that are being taken, since they might affect the chance of getting pregnant.
Health of partner
the fertility is the woman’s responsibility which is common to think of, more than 33% of fertility issues involve only the man, and another 33% involve both partners as a couple. Similar to women, men can also improve their reproductive health by quitting smoking, limiting alcohol, eating healthy and lowering stress.
Trying for a boy or a girl?
Several theories have claimed that influence can be made of the gender of the baby by having sex at a specific time of the month or in a specific position. However, there’s no surety or natural way to choose the sex of the baby. The chances for this happening are are 50-50 unless a sperm-sorting technique is used, followed by artificial insemination.
