The Struggles of Getting Pregnant

Having a hard time getting pregnant? At first, it seems getting pregnant is easy. Hindi kasi marami ang mga mommies na nagsasabing nahirapan silang mabuntis. But in one study from the scientific journal Human Reproduction, napag-alaman na almost 20 percent ng couples aiming to conceive ay hindi parin nabubuntis after 6 months.

There are many reasons why a couple can’t get pregnant. Maaring dahil sa eating habits, health, age, stress o general lifestyle ng mag-asawa kaya hindi nila magawang mag-conceive ng kanilang baby. 

Here are some tips to help you end those struggles in getting pregnant:

Make sure you and your husband are in good health

To increase the chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy, si mister and misis ay dapat parehong healthy. 

Things you can do to be healthier include:

  • Regular jogging and light exercise

  • Lose weight (for those overweight) and gain weight (for those underweight)

  • Reduce caffeine (from coffee, softdrinks and energy drinks)

  • Reduce alcohol intake

  • Quitting smoking

  • Drink Maternal Milk that can be an important source of needed nutrition before pregnancy

  • Avoid stressful activities and situations

Understand your Ovulation Period

To increase chances of getting pregnant, dapat alamin ng mag-asawa kung kalian ang ovulation period. Ovulation is when the ovaries release egg cells. Importanteng malaman kung kalian ang ovulation dahil the best days to conceive are the two to three days before ovulation. To increase their chances, couples can also have sex on the day of ovulation and the day after.

But how do you know your ovulation period? Maraming tools na pwedeng magamit tulad ng Fertility Calendars at Ovulation Predictor kits.

Know When to Seek Help

It is highly recommended to get help about fertility if you still don’t get pregnant after 6 months of trying (for 35 years old and up) and after a year of trying (for those younger than 35). Wag matakot maghanap ng Fertility Doctor. Makakatulong sila to show you options for Fertility Testing and Treatment to help you understand what you need to do to increase your chances of getting pregnant.
