Know when you’re ovulating
You must know exactly when you are ovulating! The best method to know when you are is to keep good track. There are several iphone apps that give you reminders everyday to input your days. You’re just not going to get pregnant if there is no egg for the sperm to make friends with. That’s just how we are designed. I would say that this is the most important factor.

Have sex often
Like every other day. It’s important to remember that sperm only stay alive in your body for just a few short days. If you don’t know the exact time when you ovulate then you are just rolling the dice. So take the guesswork out and have sex every other day. You may wonder why that’s recommended? Sure everyday sex sounds fun at first but it can be very tiring. So having sex every other day makes sure that there’s more than likely some sperm always available, waiting to do it’s job when the egg finally shows up.
Don’t use lubricants
Most people don’t know about this one. You should always stay away from lubricants when you’re trying to conceive. While lubricants are great for sex they ten to impede the progress of the sperm, and that just wont do! We want those little guys to get to their destination as quickly as possible.
Lie still after sex
The worst thing you can do is get up and start moving around. Lie still for about 20-30 minutes. In several studies for women who chose artificial insemination, they found that the women who stayed in place after the procedure experienced a 50% greater chance of getting pregnant when compared to those who started to move around right away. If you speak to any fertility specialist they will stress the importance of this tip.
Easier said than done! But when you want a baby so badly it can be hard to relax. If you are anxious and stressed out it greatly reduce your chances of conceiving. The stress signals you send to your body are powerful so take a chill pill. Breathe deeply, listen to some calming music, have some wine. With a relaxed, peaceful attitude you have a much greater chance of getting pregnant.
