How to increase chances of pregnancy ?

“Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God”.  But surely we can do our bit to give God a helping hand. By following some simple tips, you can ensure that there is   someone kicking you from the inside. 

1. Early marriage in twenties rather than in thirties or forties, because as you age the quality of the eggs deteriorate which makes pregnancy difficult.

2. Good diet including lots of fruits, salads, fresh green vegetables and nuts, please avoid fried, oily, sweet and processed food.

3. Moderate exercise - Just 30 mnts brisk walking  can help.

4. Regular sex - Sexual intercourse 2 to 3 times a week or spontaneous sex gives better result than forced and timed intercourse at ovulation time.

5. Stop smoking / alcohol/drugs- Strictly  no smoking and drinking, if you are planning to conceive.

6. Proper tests - Scientific analysis by undergoing hormone tests, semen analysis, scans, tube tests, laparoscopy etc can  help in the early detection of any problem.

7. Early treatment - Proper timely treatment  will give better results and will  help in avoiding prolonged wait and financial loss.

8. Regular late night outs are not good for a relationship, as many times the couple end up drunk, instead try to spend quality time with each other. 

8. Reducing stress - It has been proven beyond doubt that stress causes sub-fertility. The best cure for the body is a quiet mind.You can  practice the following to relieve stress.

a. Take regular breaks from work  in the form of short holidays

b. Listen to music and sing along. 

c. Dance is a great stress buster, join a class ( men can dance too)  and  you will be             surprised to know how much pleasure and relaxation it gives you.

d. Soak in a river or stream the whole day, hydrotherapy can work wonders. Nature’s     jacuzzi is the best.

e. Go walking on the beech, trekking forests, climbing rocks, take a leisurely stroll in    the park, you will not only feel closer to nature but also feel closer to your partner,      as the endorphins works miracles.

f. Do little bit of gardening whether you have green thumbs or not.

g. Yoga  and meditation will be the first and last word in stress relief, try at least easy       asanas  at home by yourself, if you cannot go for professional classes. In addition to     relaxation, yoga will give your body flexibility  as well.

 h. Humor is the best form of stress buster and the light moments with your partner will      help to strengthen  your relation with your partner.
