How to Get Pregnant Truths and Rumors
How can we increase the probability of conception? How do you get pregnant as soon as possible? That I’m likely to get pregnant? So many truth and rumors surround the topic. Let’s try to clarify.
It is always useful to repeat it: to get pregnant, you have to make love as often as possible! Why it doesn’t always work: Even if the two partners are fertile, the odds of conception (chance of being pregnant) are 15-20 percent. If you make love without using any contraceptive during the fertile period, then you have a chance in 4/6 to get pregnant. The odds decrease as the partners age. So the watchword is: patience!

Rumors about getting pregnant
- It’s not true that certain foods cause pregnancy or help male virility; undoubtedly eating healthy helps but that’s not all
- it’s not true that you shouldn’t wash after intercourse if you want a child. On the contrary, thorough hygiene avoids the risk of infections, which are very harmful to fertility
- it’s not true that to get pregnant it takes a long relationship. According to many testimonies, ‘spicy quickies’ are the best times to conceive a child
L’ovulation generally takes place in the central days of the month. So if, as a rule, 28 days pass between one menstruation and the next, then the fertile period will be the central one, between the 12th and 17th day of the month. This is a rather large window because on the one hand we cannot know the exact day of ovulation, on the other hand concentrating sexual intercourse in that week increases the chances of conception because the egg remains fecundable for 24-48 hours while the spermatozoa remain vital for 72 hours.
You can get pregnant before your period
You can get pregnant at any time of the month. Obviously, fertilization takes place when there is ovulation and usually ovulation, as we have said, occurs in the middle of the month. But in some cases you can have one double ovulation, or you can ovulate sooner or later. These ovulatory changes are more frequent in women over 35, when they are experiencing particular stressful conditions or hormonal abnormalities.
Again this is not a common fact: during your period it is difficult for you to be ovulating and usually it is the least fertile period of the month, however, in case of early ovulation or double ovulation it is possible to get pregnant even during menstruation and this is why the presence of the menstrual cycle should not be considered as a factor contraceptive, especially if you are over 35 years old.
It is possible to get pregnant both in the last days of menstruation and immediately after, in this case ovulation will be happened before than expected, probably due to some hormonal abnormality or alteration or related to stress and lifestyle factors.
