Getting Pregnant Answer A33021
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Women are more interested in having intercourse during ovulation time (it is natural instinct of body to make hormonal changes/influences culminate to be fruitful). If you have been trying for pregnancy and have not been successful (or when you plan to become pregnant), you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. There are many factors that govern the chances of having a successful pregnancy. Hormonal issues, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, tubal blocks, cervical or vaginal infections, ovarian failure/suppression etc., should be ruled out for you. For your partner, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the recent quality and quantity of sperms produced. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Do not delay your pregnancy plans more, as advanced maternal age or age after 35 years, is associated with increase in incidences of pregnancy complications and recurrent miscarriages. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results (if you are planning for pregnancy). Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen.
Take care.
