Beating Infertility The Natural Way
Trying to get pregnant but still no baby bump? Before you take all sorts of medication or even think about having some kind of surgery of sorts, why not focus on beating infertility the natural way? Here are three tips that might just do the trick for you. After all, what have you got to lose?
Know Your Body, Know Your Cycle
Have you ever thought that maybe the reason you still haven’t been successful at getting pregnant is simply because you are trying at the wrong time? To know exactly when you should have intercourse, you should know your body and know your cycle. This is actually one of the most important things any want to be parent should fully understand. By charting your cycle and even taking your BBT, basal body temperature, you will be able to know exactly when you will be ovulating and when it is the peak of your fertility. Some women use the calendar method. All you really have to do is count 14 days back from your period. However, this is only accurate for women with regular monthly cycles. Others just take an ovulation kit to be extra sure.
Remember that this is the only time you can get pregnant, so you better take advantage of it.
Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Diet
Actually, this is great for everyone, regardless of wanting to get pregnant or not. Leading a healthy lifestyle and following a healthy diet can actually up your chances of getting that baby that you have always wanted. Try to eat organic and focus on foods that are packed with protein and carbs, quit smoking and drinking, reduce your caffeine intake, and exercise. You should do this at least 3-4 times a week, 30 minutes a day. You should also try your best to avoid stress. Relax and try to take it easy.
Some of the recommended foods are beans, spinach, peas, lentils, brown rice, and wheat bread to cover the protein and carbs. As for iron, folic acid, and calcium, you can always take pills and supplements.
Believe it or not, but acupuncture as well as acupressure can actually help you conceive. These ancient Chinese techniques have been used for years and years to help women and fertility. Sure they feel good and help you unwind and relax, but these methods can help improve the circulation in the reproductive system and even help ovulation too.
There are actually tons of programs on the market that you should definitely check out too. One of the top selling ebooks is the Pregnancy Miracle by Lisa Olson. Or if you are more interested in selecting the gender of the baby you are trying to conceive then the Ashley Spencer How to Conceive the Baby of your Choice is the one to go for.
