For many couples who are attempting to get pregnant quickly, they soon realize that it’s not as simple as having sex without protection whenever they want to. A lot of healthy American couples, or those who don’t have fertility problems, have to wait for at least an entire year before they conceive their own bundle of joy. That’s a long time to wait if you’re psyched to have a third person at home, but there are ways to speed up your pregnancy if you want to.

1. Don’t think too much about it. It may sound counter-intuitive, but always dwelling on the fact that you have, to no avail, tried so hard to get pregnant quickly in the last few months does not help you increase your chances of having a baby. In fact, it can very possibly ruin your chances of conceiving because it causes anxiety and depression, which further leads to hormonal imbalance that can throw your reproductive cycle off its normal course.

The trick is to just sit back, relax, and have fun. You’ll soon discover you’re pregnant if you took your mind off it for a little while.

2. Take care of your mental well-being. Surefire techniques of making sure you are psychologically and mentally ready for a baby are meditation, yoga, and relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation. These methods ensure that you are worry and stress-free and are less susceptible to becoming depressed. They also keep the hormones and body processes in balance so that the reproductively system can freely carry out its conception functions without obstructions.

3. Keep your weight down. This is another good reason for exercising and eating a proper diet. Women who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 30 are overweight and are more prone to failure of conceiving and pregnancy disorders such as gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. A higher weight is also associated with insulin resistance, which results to a higher level of the male hormone testosterone in the body. Women all have testosterone, but only in small amounts. More testosterone affects the functioning of the ovaries and can impede the release of a mature egg cell.

4. Track your cycle. The ovulation calendar is useful for women who have regular menstrual cycles of 28 days each. However, most women have varying degrees of an irregular cycle. The calendar method is in no way helpful for them, but there are reusable ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) that can be bought from the drugstore. OPKs work by detecting the presence of luteinizing hormone, an indicator of near ovulation, in the urine. Use an OPK once in the morning and once in the afternoon to determine the day of ovulation.

5. Boost your chances. Natural dietary supplements can help you increase your chances of getting pregnant quickly. A Stanford University study followed the pregnancy attempts of women who were taking a supplement that contained chasteberry, L-arginine, B vitamins, selenium, and other minerals. The researchers found out that 26 percent of the women who took the supplement everyday were pregnant within only three weeks after first taking the supplement, compared to the 10 percent who were only taking placebos.
