Planning to have a baby?
The joy of preparing for a pregnancy, and the mere thought of nurturing a life within you is one of the most beautiful feelings in this universe. Staying positive and keeping good health plays a vital role during this phase. However, it is equally important to understand the basics of fertility and conception before trying to get pregnant.
1. Do you know there are only a few days each month when you can get pregnant?
These are called the fertile days and this time span is your fertile window. Being aware of your fertile window and having sex during the fertile days helps you maximize your chances of conception. Fertility researches prove that 1 in 2 couples make an effort to conceive at the wrong time. Some of them even think it is possible to get pregnant at any time of the month.
Fertility Fact: To get pregnant, the egg needs to be fertilized by the sperm in your body. As the sperm can survive in your body for several days, the three to four days prior to ovulation, and the day of ovulation itself, are the most fertile days for you.
2. What happens during Ovulation ?
Ovulation happens once in every menstrual cycle when the ovary releases an egg. This usually happens 12 to 16 days before your next period starts. In the days leading up to ovulation, your body produces a hormone called Estrogen, which causes the lining of your uterus to thicken and helps create a sperm friendly environment. The high Estrogen levels trigger a surge of another hormone called LH (luteinising hormone). This LH surge causes the release of the mature egg from the ovary - this process is called Ovulation.
Ovulation Fact: Ovulation normally occurs 3 to 4 days after increased Estrogen level and 24 to 36 hours after the LH surge. This is the reason why these two hormones are excellent predictor for peak fertility and define the exact science behind tracking ovulation.
3. How do I track Ovulation?
Being aware of the fertile days in your cycle is the key factor if you and your spouse are trying for a baby. However, all cycles are not the same. A study revealed that 46% of menstrual cycles vary by seven or more days. This makes it tough for women to accurately predict their fertile days during each cycle and causes significant stress and anxiety.
Since your fertility is controlled by your body's hormones, the most accurate way to identify YOUR personal fertile days is to detect the changes in your key fertility hormones. This can now be done using easy to use home testing products like a Fertility Monitor. A fertility monitor adapts itself according to your cycle each month. This makes it easy to identify your fertile days and plan a pregnancy accordingly.
