There is no doubt that suffering a miscarriage can be one of the most devastating experiences that a couple can endure. After going through this, many women will wonder how long after a miscarriage can you get pregnant.
It is very common to want to try again right away, but it is important to know if this is the best option. The truth is that there are several things that you will want to take into consideration. (more…)
For many women, getting pregnant after 40 may seem like it can be all too hard. Since the body’s reproductive system slows down as you age, many feel that getting pregnant after a certain age is out of the question. However, this may not always be the case and you should consider many factors before coming to that conclusion.
One of the main reasons that women who are older have trouble getting pregnant has to do with the way your body is designed to function as a female.
Women are born with over a million eggs; however, they begin losing these eggs very rapidly as they start to grow. In fact, by the time a female reaches puberty they only have 300,000 eggs left. Of these, only about 300 will ever enter into the ovulation process.
The number of eggs continues to decline the older you get. In addition, as you age the hormones that cause eggs to ovulate become less effective as well. This decline occurs no matter what your health is like, although those with poorer health or who smoke will decline at a faster rate.

Many couples try to get pregnant for weeks or even months without successfully conceiving. Sometimes there is a fertility issue in the way, but often there is nothing biologically wrong that is preventing conception.
For healthy couples that are fertile, there are a number of ways to potentially raise the odds of becoming pregnant. Understanding the most common mistakes couples make while trying to conceive can help you avoid these mistakes and get pregnant faster.
One of the most common mistakes is charting your cycle, identifying when you may be ovulating and then only having sex during that window. Focusing on having sex during ovulation actually makes it less likely that you will become pregnant. This is because of how difficult it is to accurately predict when ovulation will occur. Most women do not have exactly the same cycle every month, and having sex even a day too late can make conception impossible.
Instead of figuring out exactly which day to have sex when you are most fertile, focus on having sex on a regular basis. It can be impossible for a busy couple to have sex every day, but having sex three times a week is quite possible and even eliminates timing More >
Preparing for pregnancy at least six months before conceiving is very important in making sure a mother has the healthiest pregnancy possible. There are many ways to start preparing for pregnancy to get your body in tiptop shape. Many couples do not plan properly and have unexpected pregnancies, which can lead to a lot of stress and affect the health of the baby. These tips will help you to prepare for pregnancy in the most efficient way so you can enjoy every minute of being pregnant without all of the worries.
Pregnancy preparation includes eating healthy and taking prenatal vitamins. Folic acid is so important in the baby’s development and helps to avoid neurological defects. Folic acid is found in foods such as dried beans, spinach, broccoli and peas. Talking to your doctor about the right amount of folic acid can help you prepare and make sure you are getting the proper amount recommended.
Quitting smoking and reducing the amount of alcohol and caffeine in your diet will help to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to women having premature babies and low birth weight. Lowering the amount of alcohol and caffeine in your diet will lower the risks of affecting the fetus.

When I first saw Pregnancy Miracle, I admit I was a little sceptical…women who are struggling to conceive despite their best efforts and intentions certainly don’t need gimmicks to battle their infertility issues and let’s face it, there are plenty of them around in the world today.
However, while there are many misleading programs available on the internet today advising women how to get pregnant fast, I was happily surprised to see that this is not one of them. You see Lisa Olson herself understands better than most the whole process of infertility and is therefore able to help other women understand that their inability to become pregnant is something that takes time to overcome; it cannot be changed overnight.
