Pregnancy is all about timing. Some couples may receive good news as soon as they stop using contraceptives while others may have to keep trying for months without any results. 'How can I get pregnant fast' is a frequently asked question by women who have just begun trying for conception. On the other hand, women who have been trying for months also find themselves asking 'how do I get pregnant fast' a little too often. No matter how long you have been trying, you only have 25% chances of getting pregnant every month, that too only when you are in your prime years of fertility (early twenties). After that, the chances of conception drop drastically for every progressing year. Thus, you cannot afford to waste the opportunity that comes to you every month. Hence, if you seriously wish to know how to get pregnant fast, you ought to know a few basics about pregnancy and conception in general.

How Can I Get Pregnant Fast and Easy

Here are a few tips on how to get pregnant fast and easy. Following them will surely increase the chances of conception.

Do Your Math Right
It might sound funny, but conception does include a lot of mathematics and tedious calculations. However, this is only true if you intend to get pregnant at your will. If you allow the nature to take its own course, then you can sit back and relax, awaiting a visit from stork! But now since you want to get pregnant fast, you obviously cannot afford to lose time. So begin by calculating your ovulation day. Most women believe that they ovulate on the 14th day of their cycle. However, this is only true for women who have 28 day cycle. Even women with a regular 28 day cycle may or may not be ovulating on the same day each month. A basal body temperature chart may help you to keep track of your ovulation time. Your body temperature shows a surge during ovulation. This chart may help you to find if you ovulate at the same time each month. If the calculation is too much for you, simply buy an ovulation detector kit.

Adjust the Timing of Lovemaking
It is common knowledge that the time around ovulation is the best time to get pregnant. Having intercourse during the ovulation phase elevates your chances of conception. Now that you know when you are ovulating, it should be easy for you to schedule your lovemaking session accordingly! However, the problem is that by the time you detect ovulation on the kit, you have already ovulated (and thus wasted a chance of conception). An ovulation chart is more reliable in that respect, as you can frequently make love around the time of ovulation. Remember, an egg lives only for a day while a sperm is viable for 3 to 4 days. Hence, you should always have a sperm ready when the egg is released. Instead of waiting for ovulation time to make love, you should have sex on every alternate day of the month. Having intercourse before ovulation is more helpful than doing it later. Couples who make love on each day of month have more chances of conception.

Use Correct Lovemaking Techniques
As mentioned above, there is no alternative to regular lovemaking if you wish to get pregnant fast. Busy couples who only have intercourse on weekends may miss the right time and have to wait for another month. However, just increasing the frequency of intercourse does not assure you fast conception. You should follow correct techniques and positions of lovemaking. The Missionary position is ideal for conception as it allows deeper penetration. Sexual positions such as man on top, that use gravity to pull the sperms in female cervix should be chosen. After intercourse, the woman should lie down for some time with a pillow under her hips, so as to facilitate the travel of sperms to the cervix. Most importantly, avoid scented lubrication products such as sprays and gels. These products have spermicidal properties which impede your chances of conception.

There is really no definite and practical answer to the question 'how can I get pregnant fast'. Yet, the ways to get pregnant fast mentioned in this article can surely elevate your chances of conception. All the best!
