Know your cycle for getting pregnancy
Posted in 2nd August 2015
Getting pregnant (conception) happens when a man's sperm fertilizes a woman's egg. For some women this happens quickly, but for others it can take longer.
Out of every 100 couples trying for a baby, 80 to 90 will get pregnant within 1 year. The rest will take longer, or may need help to conceive
To understand conception and pregnancy, it helps to know about the male and female sexual organs, and to understand how a woman's monthly menstrual cycle and periods work.
The menstrual cycle is counted from the first day of a woman's period (day 1). Some time after her period she will ovulate, and then around 12-16 days after this she'll have her next period. The average cycle takes 28 days, but shorter or longer cycles are normal.
Know your cycle for getting pregnancy
Most medics agree that women are more likely to get pregnant within a day or so of ovulating.
You normally ovulate two weeks after the first day of your period, so having lots of sex at this time of the month is ideal. While sperm lives for up to 7 days, eggs have a much shorter lifespan - they only 'live' for 12 to 24 hours once they have been released so you might want to schedule special baby making appointments with your partner when you know you're at your most fertile.
But that shouldn't stop you from going for it at other times during your cycle, as we've said, the more the better!
My advise
1. There are things you can do now before you try for a baby that will affect your fertility and the health of your baby.
2... Your health before pregnancy will affect the lifelong health of your baby. By following the advice below you can: a...improve your fertility b...protect your baby’s future health c...bring down your risk of problems in pregnancy.
3.... You can improve your fertility by eating a healthy, balanced diet. The best foods include wholegrain, unsaturated fats and vegetable proteins...our diet before and during pregnancy will also affect your baby’s development in the womb and their health in the future. A healthy diet for pregnancy is the same as a healthy diet for life.
4.... Research shows that consuming too much caffeine while you are trying to conceive can increase the risk of miscarriage. The research shows that this applies to both women and men. Too much caffeine in pregnancy has also been shown to be harmful to the developing baby.
5... Your BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measure that uses your height and weight to work out if your weight is healthy. The ideal BMI before conception is between 18.5 and 24.9.
a.... Having a high BMI (over 25) can reduce your fertility and increases the risk of complications in pregnancy. Being overweight can also contribute to fertility problems in men (links to dad’s health).
b... If your BMI is in the underweight range (18.5 or less) it may affect your fertility and cause health problems during pregnancy. It may help to put on weight gradually with a healthy diet. There are many reasons why a person may be underweight. You GP can give you help and advice.
6... Stay active...Being active by doing regular, moderate exercise before and after you conceive will help your fertility as well as benefiting your pregnancy and baby in the long term. Women who are physically active are more likely to have children who are physically active too.
The Department of Health recommends: least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week and b....strength exercises on two or more days a week that work all the major muscles
7.... Avoid smoking and alcohol
8.... Non-prescription, recreational drugs, such as cannabis or cocaine can contriibute to fertility problems for men and women. Illegal drugs can also cause serious complications in pregnancy. It can be very difficult for some people to stop taking drugs. There are advice and treatment services available if you need support.
9.... You should be tension free
10. Sound sleep for minimum 5 hours.
11 . Eat healthy food which contain all needed nutrients.
12. Drink sufficient water
13... Practice long breathing
14... Choose your food which will consume less Oxygen so that your child may receive more oxygen to develop his brain and body cells.
