Getting pregnant is not always as easy as you would think. Read on for some helpful tips about how to increase fertility in order to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

1. Know When You’re Ovulating

One of the most important things you can do if you are trying to get pregnant is to know when your fertile days are. There are only a few days per month when a woman can get pregnant, so knowing those days can really improve fertility chances.  You can use an ovulation predictor kit, a basal body thermometer, or learn to notice your cervical mucus in order to help you know when you are ovulating.


2. Plan Your Sex

If you are trying to get pregnant and you already know your fertile days, the important thing to do next is to make sure to have sex during those fertile times. The egg can only live for 12-24 hours after ovulation so you have to plan accordingly. Some couples choose to have sex a day or two before ovulation in order to have the sperm ready and waiting when the egg is released.


 3. Try a Booster

If you want to do something to give your fertility a bit of a boost, try to take a daily prenatal vitamin. These can help you to bridge any nutritional gaps that you might be experiencing and can also help to keep your baby safe if you get pregnant. You can also check into a fertility blend like Conceive Easy, which is made of all natural fertility boosting ingredients.


 4. Change Your Diet

A diet full of fatty, processed junk foods is a surefire way to put a damper on your fertility. If you are prone to eating an unhealthy diet, change things up. Switch to a diet full of whole grains, organic (if possible) fresh fruits and veggies, low fat dairy and lean meats. Try to minimize eating out, and also steer clear of too many packaged processed foods.


 5. DeStress

Yes, it is much easier said than done, but if you are able to somewhat cut the stress out of your life, you will be more likely to give your fertility a boost. Try to take plenty of naps, exercise, go for walks, talk with your partner, and most importantly, laugh a lot. Do whatever it takes to decrease your stress levels and put you in a good mood.


6. Clean It Up

If you have any bad habits that might be wreaking havoc on your fertility, do whatever you can to get rid of those. If you smoke, stop. If you drink, stop. If you use illegal drugs, cut that habit as well. Try to make your body as clean and healthy as possible so it will be easier for you to get pregnant.
