Do you want to get pregnant?

Do you want to get pregnant faster? Then avoid these 7 mistakes!

Pregnancy can be an exciting, beautiful and very demanding time. But there is always one thing: a small miracle. So that you can enjoy this wonderful episode of your life as soon as possible, you should know a few things about yourself and your body beforehand. And how to avoid the 7 most common mistakes to get pregnant faster.

Mistake 1: You don't know about your own cycle.

A woman's cycle is a complex interplay of hormones and metabolic processes. And although almost every woman has a cycle, very few really know about it. When does ovulation take place again? And can you get pregnant the whole cycle? The most beautiful “Schäferstündchen” is of no use if you don't know whether you are fertile at all! That is why you should start tracking your cycle at the beginning of your fertility period.

Simple menstrual calendars can give you a rough overview. In order to determine your fertile time (and the perfect time to get pregnant), you need a closer cycle monitoring. For example with femSense, which continuously measures your body temperature and tells you when you can get pregnant.

Mistake 2: you have sex too often to get pregnant.

The more you have sex, the higher the "hit rate". It is also often said that couples who want to have children should sleep together every two days. But what's right now?

Basically the sperm quality is better with regular intercourse. Because the longer it has been since an ejaculation, the higher the probability that “finished” sperm will tire or develop incorrectly. With very frequent sex, however, the sperm count decreases. The “production” simply cannot keep up. So it's absolutely fine to take a day off in between. If you know your fertile time and your cycle z. B. with femSense trackst, you can plan better as a couple and enjoy your moments together even more.

Mistake 3: You live unhealthily.

We have good news and bad news. The bad thing first: If you want to get pregnant faster, there are a few things you should do without. For example, smoking, too much alcohol, too little sleep, too much junk food or too little exercise. Because all of this can affect your fertility. The same applies to your partner, by the way.

The good news as a little "consolation": Not only helps you avoid it when you get pregnant. As a couple, you are doing something good for yourself - and your future child. Because nothing is as important as our health!

Mistake 4: You are using the wrong lubricant.

Lubricant promotes pleasure during sex. But did you know that it can hinder you getting pregnant? Because many lubricants have a slightly acidic pH. While this is good for your vaginal flora, it can limit the mobility of the sperm. That is why you should either avoid it when you want to have children or use brands with an optimized pH value. They create a "sperm-friendly" environment and even support you in getting pregnant.

Mistake 5: You trust strange half-knowledge about getting pregnant.

Headstand after sex, determine gender through the time of sexual intercourse, take certain herbs ... There are many stories about the topic of "getting pregnant". These are gladly told to friends and recommended, because: "My neighbor / girlfriend / hairdresser got pregnant immediately!"

The fact is that the effect of most of these recommendations has neither been proven nor proven. Of course you can try them out. But you shouldn't hope for miracles. It is still best to have a solid knowledge of your own cycle and a healthy lifestyle.

Mistake 6: You are "wrong" using ovulation tests to get pregnant.

Ovulation tests are practical. Similar to a pregnancy test, they measure the levels of hormones in your urine. The stronger the "line" on the test, the better the time to get pregnant.

But be careful: don't wait for the line on the ovulation test to be strong enough! Otherwise, it is easy for you to miss ovulation and the fertile period. It is best to start “practicing” some time beforehand - and use ovulation tests in addition to cycle tracking.

Mistake 7: You don't see the gynecologist regularly.

Admittedly, a visit to the doctor does not automatically make you more fertile. But your gynecologist can relatively easily identify diseases or problems in your body that can make pregnancy difficult. For example adhesions, fibroids, hormonal disorders or the like. He can advise you or refer you to specialists. So: Keep your appointments at the gynecologist regularly, if only because of the important preventive check-up!

You see: Most of it can be avoided and implemented relatively easily. Of course, getting pregnant always includes a little bit of luck. But avoiding mistakes and above all tracking your cycle can help you get lucky. We wish you all the best!
