If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a considerable amount of time with no luck you’re probably starting to wonder if opting for surrogacy or adoption is the next best option. Before jumping to conclusions right way, it’s important to start considering some of the most common reasons for not being able to conceive. Once you’re able to identify some of the reasons for not getting pregnant, you can fix the issue.
Having a baby isn’t just about having sex. There are many factors which come into play which can contribute to being able to get pregnant. Here are some of the most common reasons which you may want to consider.
Too Little Sex
Since there are fertile phases during the month which are the ideal time for having a baby, it’s more likely you’ll get pregnant the more sex that you have. In the world of conception, it’s all a numbers game.
Staying without sex for days at a time will lower your probability of being fertilized at just the right moment. Even though you may think you’re correct about your ovulation days, it’s not always the case.
That said, if you have not had an intimate relationship with your partner for a long time, then it might be a bit challenging to get the confidence to start the conversation and finally get into some action. It is understandable! That is why take baby steps. Start with self-pleasure. Learn how to have orgasms on your own by watching some PornV adult videos or using sex toys. This can allow you to be more comfortable with your body, which would, in turn, make it easy for you to talk to your partner about the topic of intimacy and what makes you feel good.
The bottom line is if you’re trying to conceive, have sex as frequently as possible and keep a close eye on your ovulation calendar. Use an ovulation kit. If you see results that ovulation is starting within two days, get busy!
Stress takes a toll on your body and mind. As a result, it can affect your ability to get pregnant. Depression and anxiety can also affect your fertility levels. Try to remain as calm as possible eliminating stressful situations when you and your partner are trying to conceive. Stress can also lead to irregular periods which can make conception even more frustrating.
If stress is a recurring theme in your life, you may want to consider taking action to eliminate it altogether. Join a support group, start therapy, or take up something like meditation.
Low Sperm Count
One of the most common reasons for infertility is a low sperm count. If you suspect that this may be the case, see a fertility specialist for treatment. Your doctor can discuss the various options available to you, and you can decide how you want to move forward.
Going To The Bathroom After Sex
Some women’s first instinct is to clean up after intimacy. However, fertility experts will tell you that essential to stay in bed so that the sperm gets a chance to fertilize the egg. If you get up and move around, as soon as you are done, you are causing the sperm to drop down and wash away.
Instead, relax and enjoy laying in bed for a while after sex rather than rushing. You can clean up at a later time.
