Boosting your chances of getting pregnant

Well, some couples seem to get pregnant simply by talking about it. For others, it takes plenty of patience and a bit of luck.

I would start from an old-fashion method: predict your ovulation day first. Use a calendar where you can mark the day your period begins each month. Also track the number of days each period lasts. Ovulation is most likely to occur at the midpoint of your cycle.

Have sex regularly, at least 3 times a week, and every day near the time of ovulation.

Don't smoke. Tobacco affects cervical mucus, which can prevent sperm from reaching the egg.

Don't overdo strenuous exercise. Some research suggests that more than seven hours a week of vigorous aerobic activity can actually impair fertility.

From my personal experience: After I got a miscarriage, my doctor recommended to take birth control pills for 6 months before getting pregnant again. One of the reason to let my body heal, but the second reason-the longer women took the birth control pill, the greater their chances of getting pregnant within six months to a year after they went off of it. It's not a fast method, but I got pregnant a month after I got off the pills.
