Maximise Chances of Getting Pregnant

If you are a woman who has arrived at a time in life when you are ready to settle down and have children, but are just not able to fully realise your dream this could lead to resentment, frustration, and confusion. As much as most people think they know on the topic, there are times in life when getting pregnant is a lot easier said than done. Following is information that we have provided on the subject of how you can maximize your chances of Getting Pregnant.

Studies have shown that one in two couples could be trying for a baby at the wrong time. So one of the easiest ways to increase your chances is to find when you’re most fertile. Your two most fertile days each cycle are the day of ovulation and the day before. You may also be fertile for a few days before ovulation, as your partner’s sperm can survive in your body for several days, so having sex on those days before ovulation can also result in pregnancy.

How can I find out when I am ovulating?

There’s a whole range of methods that you can use to find out when you are ovulating. Each one can be used on its own or in conjunction with the others. Some tell you when you have ovulated and some predict when you’re going to ovulate. The methods include:

Clearblue Easy Ovulation Tests:

One of the most simple and accurate ways to find out when you’re ovulating is to use home ovulation tests such as the Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test. You use ovulation tests the same way you would use a home pregnancy test: you hold the Absorbent Sampler of a test stick in your urine stream and you see the result in a window on the test stick. Clearblue Ovulation Tests will tell you the best 2 days to conceive - the day before ovulation and the day of ovulation. So, if you have sex on these two days, you’ll be giving yourself the best chance of getting pregnant.

Clearblue Fertility Moniter:

The Clearblue Fertility Monitor maximizes your chances of conception by identifying up to 6 fertile days. It not only shows your 2 Peak Fertility days, but also detects a surge in oestrogen which will identify an extra 1-5 days of High Fertility before ovulation. As your partner’s sperm can survive in your body for several days, having sex on those days can also result in pregnancy.

The Clearblue Fertility Monitor gives you comprehensive, personal information that is unique to you.

Typically identifies up to 6 fertile days

Most advanced way of tracking your most fertile days – the only non-invasive method that detects both LH and oestrogen hormones

100% natural and non-invasive

Suitable for women with regular and irregular periods

Basal Metabolic Rate:

This method uses the fact that your basal body temperature rises by 0.2-0.4°C after ovulation. To use this method accurately, you have to take your BBT first thing every morning to build up a complete picture of your cycle.

Because it charts temperature rise after ovulation it can only be used to predict ovulation in the next cycle. That means you have to have a very regular cycle to be able to work out exactly when you will ovulate in the next cycle to make the most of your most fertile days.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that your body temperature can rise for a number of other reasons (including illness, drinking alcohol, hot drinks, movement and restless sleep), which can confuse matters. Also, in around 20% of women, ovulation doesn’t trigger a rise in body temperature.
