How to Get Pregnant Fast

There are many things a woman can do to boost her fertility and help her to get pregnant faster — whether she is trying to conceive naturally or undergoing fertility treatment such as IVF. Women can improve their chances when trying to conceive by doing such things as avoiding tobacco and alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight and reducing stress.

Knowing your signs of ovulation and timing sexual intercourse a few days before and after ovulation will also help in your desire to get pregnant fast.  Keep track of the intervals between Day 1 of your menstrual cycle (the first day of bleeding) and Day 1 of your next menstrual cycle. If you have a regular 28-day cycle, you can take the 28 and subtract 14, which gives you the approximate day of ovulation (Day 14). If your menstrual cycle is not a regular 28-day cycle, you may want to track ovulation in other ways such as taking your basal body temperature (BBT) or through an ovulation predictor kit (OPK).

The fertile window usually lasts around three to five days. Once you have an idea of the day you are ovulating, try having sexual intercourse every other day around that day. For example, if you think you ovulate on Day 14, have sex on Days 12, 14 and 16.

However, you may be doing everything right when you are trying to conceive and still have trouble getting pregnant. If you are under 35 and have been trying to conceive for a year with no pregnancy or over 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for six months with no pregnancy, contact an HRC fertility doctor for a complete evaluation to discover whether you need fertility treatment to help.
