Proven TTC Tips When You’re Trying to Get Pregnant

While there are no guarantees in the world of baby making, there are many things you can do that have been proven to help increase your chances of success.

 Ovulation Tracking

If a woman is aware of her menstrual cycle and upcoming ovulation, she can plan to have sex regularly in the days leading up to its occurrence. This can increase her chances of getting pregnant each month.

Monitor Ovulation on a Calendar

Keep a calendar-style log of what you learn about your body. Within a few months, you’ll likely be able to predict ovulation on your own.

Have sex every (other) day around the time of ovulation

If you’re trying to conceive the old fashioned way, we recommend having sex outside of your ovulation window too! This can help keep it fun, and it’s smart in case you’re wrong about when you ovulate that month.
