There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about natural techniques to improve fertility. Always be with your doctor before beginning any supplements or treatments that a doctor has not prescribed. The following are some frequently asked questions about natural fertility:

What can I do to increase my chances of naturally conceiving?

A lady should ensure she is capable and healthy enough for pregnancy before attempting it by living a fitter lifestyle and assuming prenatal vitamins. Before conceiving, the woman should consult a medical practitioner if she has or is at risk of having a medical or genetic issue (becoming pregnant).

If I want to get pregnant, what is the optimum time to have sex?

The "fertile window" is usually described as the six days leading up to and including ovulation day. Ovulation happens typically on or around day 14 of a regular 28-day menstrual cycle interval. 

What are my odds of getting pregnant?

There isn't a straightforward solution. Your age and the number of months you've been trying to get pregnant affect your chances of success if you have regular menstrual cycles. In the first three months of trying, you and your partner have the best chance of getting pregnant. During the first three months, the chances of conception for young fertile couples range from 20% to 37%. After one year, the chance of success rises to 80%, and after two years, it rises to 90%. Fertility rates are lower among women over 35 and men over 50.

What is the best way for me to keep track of my ovulation?

You may keep track of your ovulation day in a variety of ways. Ovulation predictor kits are commercially available and may be purchased at most local pharmacies. Other natural options are also accessible. Monitoring vaginal secretions is a cheap and practical approach to check for ovulation during a natural cycle. When the secretions are slick and precise, the chances of becoming pregnant are maximum.

How often should I have sex, and does it matter where I have it?

It's a prevalent misperception that having sex too often reduces your chances of becoming pregnant. Having sex every day or every other day during the reproductive window improves your chances of getting pregnant. The position has no bearing on fertility as long as sperm is deposited in the vaginal canal.

What exactly is a fertile window?

The fertile window is the period of a cycle during which pregnancy is possible. It's usually the six days leading up to ovulation. Ovulation usually happens 14 days before the next menstrual period, so a lady having a 28-day cycle will ovulate on day 14 of her cycle (that is, 14 days after the start of her last menstrual period). That indicates that if you have intercourse within the six days leading up to ovulation, you're more likely to get pregnant.

If I'm attempting to conceive, may I use lubricants during sex?

During sexual intercourse, many couples like to use lubricants. Unfortunately, many lubricants, including saliva, might block sperm, lowering your chances of becoming pregnant. Mineral oil and canola oil appear to have little effect on sperm. Pre-Seed (INGfertility) and ConceivEase (Reproductive Laboratory) are two commercially marketed hydroxyethyl cellulose-based lubricants that have no impact on sperm.

How can I tell if I'm ovulating?

Ovulation can be defined in a variety of ways. It's crucial to know when a woman is ovulating because the viable window is determined by the day of ovulation. Cervical mucus and vaginal secretions rise 5-6 days before ovulation and reach their peak 2 to 3 days before ovulation. These changes can be tracked to determine when a woman is fertile. The surge in luteinizing hormone (LH) that occurs soon before ovulation can also be detected using urinary ovulation prediction kits. The primary trigger that causes the eggs to be released from the ovary is LH.

Is my way of life affecting my fertility?

A healthy lifestyle can aid fertility, particularly in women suffering from ovulatory dysfunction. All women trying to conceive should take at least 400mcg of folic acid daily (or a prenatal vitamin that contains folic acid). Fertility has been demonstrated to be influenced by the following factors:

  • Smoking- It has been proven that smoking has a detrimental impact on fertility and may raise the chance of miscarriage.
  • Alcohol – Women who consume alcohol (more than two drinks per day) may have problems conceiving.
  • Caffeine-High caffeine intake in women (more than 5 cups of coffee per day or the equivalent in other caffeinated beverages) may harm fertility. More than 200-300mg (2-3 cups of coffee per day) of caffeine during pregnancy may increase the risk of miscarriage.
  • BMI- Being overweight or underweight might negatively impact fertility.

Is there a link between nutrition and fertility?

Women who are very thin or obese have lower fertility, but there is little evidence that normal diet fluctuations influence average weight (BMI 19-25) and have regular periods. The one exception is that a mercury-rich diet (found in some seafood) has been linked to infertility. Reduced fertility has been linked to smoking, heavy alcohol intake (> 2 drinks per day), excessive caffeine consumption, and the use of recreational drugs like marijuana. As a result, women (and their male partners) planning a pregnancy should cut back on alcohol and caffeine consumption and avoid smoking and other recreational drugs while attempting to conceive.

Are there any reasons to contact a healthcare practitioner as soon as possible?

Some couples have a medical history that necessitates consulting a healthcare expert before or early in the pregnancy process.

If the woman possesses:

  • Irregular or non-existent menstrual periods
  • Tests for a luteinizing hormone that are negative,
  • Sexually transmitted infection history
  • Any previous pelvic or abdominal surgery.
  • Infertility issues in the past

If your male partner:

  • A history of testicular or genital issues
  • Hypospadias (shortness of breath) (opening of the urethra not in the end of the penis)
  • Infection spread by sexual contact
  • Ejaculation difficulties
