If you want to know how to get pregnant fast and easy naturally, then you’ve come to the right place!
Getting pregnant was an absolute struggle.
I did get pregnant, finally! The reason I am saying this is that it took me 4 years altogether to get pregnant.
I was upset, depressed, worried and frustrated.
Everybody in the world could easily have a baby, except me. Everywhere I turned around I saw happy expecting mothers and babies.
Of course! Isn’t this the worst nightmare of a woman struggling to get pregnant?!
I almost had some sort of adversity towards the happiness of any mom or baby that I saw ( it is absolutely inhuman what I just mentioned, but I think if you are going through this you know what I mean).
Bottom line, I was miserable. Sounds familiar?
I wanted a baby really really bad.
I wan not happy 4 years ago. I just couldn’t get pregnant. I took birth controls for many years. When my husband and I decided we wanted to have a baby, I obviously stopped taking them.
Two years went away and I was still waiting patiently to get pregnant.
But as time went by, I was getting worried. I even took into consideration the possibility of being infertile. So I went to a fertility clinic and paid $500 for an exam.
FERTILITY CLINIC VISIT
The exam was more of a conversation with the doctor who quickly diagnosed me as being fertile because I was “young enough” and my medical history did not present any risk.
And because I was most likely fertile, she wanted me to immediately start the process: first, she wanted me to start with some hormone pills if I remember correctly; if that would not work she wanted me to continue with some shots and so on.
Basically, she wanted me to go through all the possibilities (from the simplest to the most elaborated). But I felt that she was taking advantage of me and she just wanted my money.
These things can get extremely expensive.
So my visit to the fertility clinic was not that exciting.
HUNTING FOR SOLUTIONS
I did not give up though, and you shouldn’t either. What I did instead was as much research as I could. At that time, I happened to be in hygiene school and I had this classmate who had 2 babies while she was a student.
She was perfectly healthy, but she did use some kind of a long thin syringe to get pregnant because she wanted this to be timed so she would not have to skip school that much.
Since I was hunting for any trick of that kind, I bought that “home kit” containing the syringe myself and did what my classmate did: on the day of ovulation I put sperm into syringe, gently inserted syringe, slowly released sperm, laid down to keep the sperm in for 30 minutes (I even held my legs up).
It worked twice in a row for her on the first try, but nope, it did not work for me.
Imagine me having to see how fast and easy my classmate got pregnant, having to attend her baby showers and witnessing her pregnancy process. The worst part was when she gave birth and I went to the hospital to visit her.
Again, I probably sound the worst person on this planet, but I do hope you get my point. It was very painful for me to digest her joy of just giving birth because I was struggling with having a baby myself.
THE WONDER HAPPENED
So I continued my research day, after day, after day… I was determined not to give up. I REFUSED to give up! I prayed a lot also! I had to. That was the only fuel that kept me going.
Here I was one day browsing the internet and looking for any tips that could help me when I found this random old post on a random website written by a surrogate mom.
Hmm, that definitely caught my attention. That woman wrote how she got pregnant multiple times ( she did that for a living) on the first try ALWAYS!
And because I had already read so much on that topic and was very very familiar with most aspects, her method made total sense to me.
It is going to make sense to you too. If you have no fertility issues, if you are healthy, I think there is no way this method won’t work on you too.
That woman recommended placing a menstrual cup with sperm at the cervix on the day of the ovulation.
So instead of having sperm spread all around in your vagina and hoping that some would get near your cervix, you keep all the sperm right where it should be. This will definitely increase your chances of getting pregnant.
I won’t postpone this any longer and I am going to reveal what worked %100 for both me and that surrogate mom, even though I briefly disclosed the method earlier.
Here is exactly what I used and got pregnant twice (the first time I conceived I couldn’t stay pregnant due to incompetent cervix; the second time I got pregnant I was able to carry full-term):
You only need 3 things in order to get pregnant fast and easy naturally:
- Ovulation Predictor Kit (you need to know exactly when you ovulate; no guessing allowed. I tried others, but this one seemed the easiest and most accurate)
- Menstrual cup ( I used this one because that was the only one I could find in the store at that time; this cup helps you keep sperm in)
- PreSeed Lubricant (this supports sperm quality)
*I also used a Sperm Test Kit just to rule out low sperm count or motility.
Once you have all of these you are ready to START!
The most important step is to monitor your ovulation and I strongly recommend the ovulation predictor mentioned above.
I monitored my ovulation for a couple of months so I kind of had an idea when I would ovulate each month, but I always relied on the device.
Also, I used a calendar and marked down my ovulation and menstruation.
You should try this method on the day of your ovulation. Here is what you need to do:
- Line the inside of the menstrual cup with sperm (*make sure the sperm is not contaminated with any other body fluids; you can have your partner ejaculate in a plastic cup. Then you can transfer the sperm from the plastic cup to the menstrual cup).
- Line the inside again with a small amount of PreSeed
- Follow directions on how to place it at the cervix (if I remember correctly, you are supposed to keep it inside for no more than 8 hours. I kept it the whole night; I placed it before bedtime)
*When you take the cup out be very GENTLE and PATIENT because it tends to generate a strong suction.
After this… you wait! You wait and have a pregnancy test ready. This is the one I used and I really liked it because the readings were very fast.
A few last tips before you go. Remember:
1.STOP TAKING YOUR BIRTH CONTROL AHEAD OF TIME
You want to give your body a chance to self regulate, and that may take a few cycles. It’s also a good opportunity for you to start tracking your ovulation.
2. HEALTHY DIET
Have a healthy diet for you and for your upcoming baby. You both need nutrients. Keep in mind that too much sugar in your diet tends to cause hormonal imbalance. You definitely don’t want that.
3. KNOW YOUR OVULATION
This is the key to your success. Ovulation is everything. you have to make sure you ovulate and when you ovulate. I used a device because I was desperate and I wanted something accurate.
Just so you can get an idea, ovulation usually happens between 10 -14 days after your period. Mine was always on the 10th day. When you ovulate your cervical mucus looks just like egg whites: thin and slippery.
4. HAVE SEX AT THE RIGHT MOMENT
I know they say to have sex every other day, but to tell you the truth I always did it the day of my ovulation and it worked. Remember that the egg survives for approximately 24 hours.
How many times can you have sex?! But you may do it before you ovulate just to make sure there’s some sperm around when your egg is being released.
5. START TAKING PRENATAL VITAMINS
It’s a good idea to start taking prenatals before actually getting pregnant. I started taking Nature Valley as soon as I decided I wanted to have a baby. Prenatals have folic acid which prevents spina bifida.
This birth defect may occur in the early stages of your pregnancy, so early you may not even know you’re pregnant. Don’t give a chance for this to happen.
6. SEX POSITIONS ARE A MYTH
Don’t worry bout these. There’s no scientific evidence saying that one position is better than another. Standing during intercourse would obviously not keep the sperm inside, so you would be wasting so much “gold”.
7. NO BAD HABITS
Decrease your caffeine intake, no alcohol and smoking. You want to create and maintain perfect conditions for your egg which comes once a month anyway.
8. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO CONCEIVE?
It all depends on age and body. The younger, meaning under 35, the better. Your body is in charge in terms of fertility, ovulation etc. Your partner also has an important role.
We assume we are healthy, but sometimes we encounter unexpected issues like low sperm motility for example. Overall, 30% of women are expected to get pregnant in the first month of trying and 80% in the first year.
Do not be discouraged if you don’t get pregnant on the first try. You have to believe and never give up! Never lose hope!
It has to work no matter what! This method worked for me even after a miscarriage, so I truly swear by it.
