Pregnancy - The Waiting Game

Every pregnancy is unique and at the same time the period that is required for getting pregnant may different in case of different women. Let us take a look at some facts about the time which a woman may take to get pregnancy and what kinds of difficulties may arise.

Some women may conceive quickly while some women may even take 6 months to conceive naturally. There are several factors which are responsible for a successful conception. If a woman is planning to have a baby she must consider these factors for conceiving quickly. Discussed below are some concerns of women about getting pregnant.

How long can it take to get pregnant?

Some couples are surprised to learn that conception does not take place as a matter of course once they stop using contraceptive precautions. Stopping the pill or using a condom does not work as simply as just unlocking the door to let the sperm in to fertilize a waiting egg. The fact is that if you and your partner do not have any infertility problems, there will be approximately a 1 in 3 chance of becoming pregnant as a result of unprotected intercourse during the fertile phase of each cycle. Those women who do become pregnant without any medical assistance generally do so within 2 years of trying, 80% conceiving during the first year.

When do I need to consult a doctor for help?

If you have been timing your intercourse and trying for more than 6 months without any success, it is time to see a gynecologist.  The gynecologist will prescribe certain diagnostic tests and either treat you herself or send you (and/or your partner) to a fertility specialist.

Women all around me are getting pregnant, why can't I?

For the majority of women there is no problem in getting pregnant. If, however, you are one of the 10% of couples in whom there are factors which may delay or prevent the arrival of the much longed for baby, then despair and despondency can rapidly follow. This is not helped by the apparent ease that others about you seem to have in conceiving.  The girl in your office having a termination of pregnancy, your sister having her third baby, babies in supermarkets and TV advertisements - everyone is having a baby except you - even people who don't really want one! You may even feel “IT ISN’T FAIR!”

How to get pregnant quickly?

If you are planning a baby and if you want to conceive quickly, you must take the following measures.
  • Avoid delaying your parenthood. Plan to have babies during your 20s. Planning pregnancies after 30s can reduce the chances of quick conception.
  • Quit faulty habits like smoking, drinking and taking drugs. Such habits can affect the chances of conception.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obesity is one of the factors that can hinder the chances of getting pregnancy easily.
  • Have a healthy diet. Include fertility boosting foods in your diet. Faulty eating habits can also affect the ability to conceive.
  • Have sexual intercourse during your fertile period. Use ovulation prediction kits to make sure that your have intercourse while you are ovulating.
  • Do not urinate immediately after having a sexual intercourse.
  • Learn about the sex positions that help in conceiving faster.
  • Practise exercises that can help to stimulate your reproductive organs.
If you are finding it difficult to conceiving naturally even after trying for 6 months, you must consult a doctor. You doctor may suggest appropriate measures that can help you to conceive fasters. There is no need to worry as with the advances in medical science there are many assisted reproductive techniques available which can help couples to have a baby.
