This is because to the majority of the people when they are young, this happens fast and sometimes it happens unexpectedly. The following tips are from my own journey and I hope that they will be helpful:

I know this may not make sense at all especially if you have been trying for some time. But if you are stressed, your body may not be able to operate as required. Then at this point, try to make love with your partner and enjoy. Let your aim be not trying to make a baby. This will help you to remove the unnecessary pressure in this journey.
✦ 2. Trust the Timing
If you believe in God like me, or the universe, or whatever you believe in, nothing beats having the trust that when the time is right, it’s going to happen. But remember giving it time doesn’t mean that you can’t consult a specialist. This will be great for both of you especially if you have been trying and waiting for more than 2 years.
✦ 3. Download a Fertility App For Trying to Get Pregnant Tips
This will include doing a lot of your research to get to know which Fertility App has the best tools. It will help you in this journey to record your cycle and to understand it. Besides, with this, you will know when it is your fertile window and it will even remind you. From my own experience, the App may not know your exact fertility window but it helps you in keeping all your records. They also give you extra information.
✦ 4. Go For a Couple Massage
The primary reason for this massage is not to help to get pregnant but it is meant to relax your body. When the body is relaxed from the everyday life stress and the stress of trying to get pregnant, this will be of great help. You’ll not need to go for many sessions, it’s about going to a professional who does deep tissue massage. It may be a bit uncomfortable after the massage, but you will feel the effects in 2 to 3 days.
✦ 5. Monitor Your Ovulation
When trying to get pregnant this is one of the tips that will help to reduce your frustrations. This is by heading to your local pharmacy to get the ovulation tests. They will help you to monitor your ovulation period. During this period, try to have more sex, and after sex, you can keep lying down for like 10 to 15 minutes before cleaning up yourself. And remember to relax and to enjoy the sex without putting pressure on yourself.
✦ 6. Embrace a Healthy Lifestyle
I think that this should be the starting point for getting pregnant. This includes eating healthy, staying hydrated, exercising, and having enough sleep. Habits like smoking which can also affect the quality of the sperm should be avoided. For ladies, remember to take those folic acid tablets before getting pregnant and after conceiving.
✦ 7. Visit a Gynaecologist For Trying to Get Pregnant Tips
Last but not least, this is one of the tips that you can choose to make it a priority or to make it to be that last. This is especially if you and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for more than 2 years. I know that it is not a fun experience but it is important for you to get to know the following:
✦ For the Ladies
Visiting a Gynaecologist will let you know:
- If you still have eggs
- Are the fallopian tubes blocked or not
- Any underlying issues that may cause infertility
- It will also help you to understand your cycle
✦ For the Men When Trying to Get Pregnant Tips
This visit will let the Gynaecologist get the sample of your sperm and it will be sent to the laboratory. And within 2 to 3 days, you’ll know the results of:
- Your sperm count
- The strength or the speed of how the sperm moves or swim
Wishing you all the best in your journey and stay positive!
