Planning to have a baby can be a stressful event, especially if you do not succeed after a few tries. The fear of impotence and infertility is a very real fear for most people, so much so that having a child can become an obsession.
Here are some suggestions for improving your chances of pregnancy:
Plan ahead. Every couple should be aware of the woman's fertile period, and plan their intercourse accordingly. If sacrifices have to be made, so be it. A husband or a wife should be willing to forgo an appointment or two so that the opportunity for conception is not missed.
Conduct some research. There is some good, solid information on the subject of fertility available today. Be sure to look some materials up, and sift the wheat from the chaff. Once you get excellent information, however, act on it! There's a saying that goes, "Knowledge is power." In trying to achieve pregnancy, though, "Applied knowledge is power." You must apply what you have learned in order to get results.
Stay healthy. Remember, the fertilization process is a biological process affected by biological factors. This means that the health of a couple plays a major role in pregnancy and birth. You owe it to yourself to keep yourself in the best possible health. Make sure you eat the right foods, get some regular exercise, and get enough rest.
Procure professional assistance. We all need some help at one point or another. There are various organizations that provide assistance for couples suffering from fertility problems. Seek these groups out and see what they have to offer.
