Some couples try month after month and year after year to conceive a baby but have trouble getting pregnant and are unsure why. I’m assuming that you have been struggling to get pregnant and I’m sorry that you haven’t been successful yet. However, I’m delighted for you in that you haven’t let your trouble getting pregnant keep you from searching for answers to overcome whatever obstacles you have had to this point.

Now, before I go any further I always like to recommend that if you haven’t discussed your plans with your doctor that you do so. The fact that you haven’t been able to get pregnant yet could be related to a minor medical issue that your physician might be able to diagnose. Your health and the health of your baby is always of utmost importance.

Listed below are some possible causes of trouble getting pregnant

Stress – Studies have shown that our bodies and stress just don’t seem to get along well. Stress can lead to many psychological, physical and emotional issues if left unchecked. If you have been stressing out about having trouble getting pregnant you might be having problems sleeping and eating in a healthy manner. Part of the fertilization process involves production of estrogen and releasing of eggs during ovulation. Studies have shown that when elevated stress is involved there is a negative affect on estrogen levels to the point where the eggs are not released properly and thus makes fertilization more challenging.

Smoking – Smoking can reduce the quantity and quality of a man’s sperm so it’s advisable that the man stop smoking if he hasn’t done so already. Sometimes men think it’s all on the shoulders of their partner to make healthy choices to get over having trouble getting pregnant but it’s a joint responsibility. For the women trying to get pregnant you can reduce your troubles by not smoking. The not so nice side-effects of smoking is that it can harm your ovaries and normal production of estrogen, which is vital to the process of getting pregnant.

Diet – Coffee, tea and chocolate might taste good but aren’t that helpful when it comes to overcoming trouble getting pregnant. I’m sure you have read that eating a healthy diet of vegetables, fruits, nuts and whole grains can be helpful in the overall process of getting pregnant, although that’s debated in some scholarly circles. However, it’s pretty much accepted that caffeine has a negative affect on fertility, so avoid it to the extent that you can.

Timing – When it comes to getting pass your trouble getting pregnant you no doubt will need to be more precise with when you work on getting pregnant and how often. Yes, there are varying opinions on how often you should be trying e.g., everyday or three times a day or perhaps every other day. If you really want to increase your chances of getting pregnant you will figure out when your body is most ready, willing and able to receive and conceive. The best way to know this is by using a basal thermometer to keep track of your cycles or use an ovulation predictor kit. Both of these options are affordable and pretty easy to get started with. Increasing your understanding about the timing will bring you closer to realizing your dream of bringing a precious little one into the world.

Physical Issues – As I mentioned above if you are having trouble getting pregnant as a result of some kind of physical issue, hopefully your doctor will be able to diagnose and treat it. As you are well aware, although the fertilization process is pretty simple, the precision and timing and steps that have to all come together can be complicated. Just remember that although doctors have the gift of technology and experience they are not always 100% accurate.

If you are having trouble getting pregnant and your patience is decreasing and your stress levels are increasing please take a step back and regroup. There have been thousands of couples in your position wondering, how can we get pregnant? Guess, what happened after a little patience and guidance? They were able to conceive and bring a precious new life into this world.

Although you might be having trouble getting pregnant now, don’t let that stop you from finding the answer to the question, how can we get pregnant.
