Tips for Conception and Getting Pregnant

Contrary to popular belief, it's not easy for "everyone" to get pregnant. Fertility can be a tricky thing and fertility clinics receive many "help me get pregnant" requests and requests for tips on how to conceive.

The way our body functions depends on a multitude of factors, including lifestyle. Lifestyle choices can, and do, influence our chances of conception and giving birth to a healthy, properly developed baby. When it comes to health and nutrition, nearly every choice we make is related to conception.

The best tip on getting pregnant is: follow a healthy lifestyle, know how your body works and actively try to conceive. It's that simple.

It is true that an abusive lifestyle could diminish both a woman’s and a man’s fertility and increase the chances of birth defects.

Understanding Ovulation

understanding-ovulationWhat is ovulation?

Ovulation is the discharge of a mature egg from a follicle developed inside the ovary into the fallopian tubes. Most of the time, it occurs regularly, half way through a menstrual cycle. For example, if you have a 28-day cycle, ovulation is likely to occur on day 14. Once released, the egg can be fertilised for 12 to 48 hours before it begins to disintegrate and lose its fertilising capability. The most fertile days of your cycle are the two days following the day of release of the egg. The BabyWonderland Ovulation Calendar can help you calculate accurately your most fertile days every month by locating the day of egg release.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Also known as the Stein-Leventhal syndrome, the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS affects around 4%-7% of women and it's the most common cause of infertility in women. Among the PCOS symptoms, the usual ones are irregular cycles, lack of ovulation or oligoovulation (irregular ovulation), prolonged period of premenstrual symptoms, such as bloating, mood swings, pelvic pain, backaches etc and excessive androgen (masculinizing) hormones, leading to excessive hair grow, male pattern baldness or male pattern obesity (central obesity).


In Vitro Fertilization

IVF In vitro fertilization, or IVF, is a medical procedure for collecting eggs, maturing them (if necessary) and fertilising them in vitro. The fertilized egg (eggs), also called an embryo, is then implanted into the uterus where it is expected to stick to wall of the uterus and develop into a fetus. The procedure is quite common, but, obviously, it can't guarantee the success of the pregnancy, for various reasons, some of them related to the woman's physical capability to bear a full term pregnancy.
