Help To Get Pregnant - More Ways To Get Pregnant Fast

Updated on August 13, 2017

Ways to get Pregnant

Whether you are just starting out trying to conceive or have been struggling to get pregnant for months (or even years) then you probably are looking for some more ways to get pregnant. I know for me it took 18 months for baby #1 and over two years for #2, so while I eventually did fall pregnant, it wasn't an easy journey.

I had friends that would tell me to 'just have sex everyday' or my personal favourite 'just relax it will happen when you least expect it'. Yeah right. If I didn't take steps to help myself get pregnant I'd probably be still trying!

I knew all the basics, like knowing when you ovulate, checking for cervical mucus, charting, OPK's - I did it all. And while it's true that when trying ways to get pregnant you do need to know all that stuff sometimes you do everything right and still don't get a positive pregnancy test. Frustrating isn't it.

Anyway the purpose of this webpage is not to try and sell you some scammy ebook (which usually just contain basic and general information anyway) but to let you know what things worked for me in the hopes that it might also help someone else struggling and wanting to know some more ways to get pregnant rather than just hear the same old advice over and over.

Ok so here is what worked for me for baby #1:

It wasn't until we had be trying to get pregnant for around 6 months before I started to figure that something might be wrong. It was around now that I also found out that I had a short luteal phase and ovulated late on around day 17. I found that information after I purchased a Body Basal Thermometer and started charting my cycles by taking my temperature every morning. I also suspected I had a hormone imbalance but I have never been tested for this.

Anyway while I got to know my body pretty well and new exactly when I was ovulating and when to have sex I still wasn't getting pregnant.

I tried all the usual suspects: prenatal vitamins, evening primrose oil, drinking lots of water and even vitex which works well for many women. I even tried the old egg white trick which was rather messy. None of these things worked for me. I got hubby to have a sperm analysis test and he was fine.

Our next step was a visit to the doctor who told me the fastest ways to get pregnant was IVF. Unhappily I made an appointment. It was also around this time that I found a blend of fertility herbs and vitamins from a Chinese herbalist. It was around $30 a bottle from memory. I think it had a blend of Dong Quai, False Unicorn Root and other things in it. On the second month of taking this I was pregnant. (I never made my IVF appointment thankfully).

Obviously this blend of herbs was enough to balance my hormones sufficiently to get pregnant.

What worked for baby #2:

I naively thought that perhaps baby #2 would be easier - that I'd 'figured it out'.  I was wrong.  In fact this time around it was harder that before.  Of course the first thing I tried was the magical Chinese herbal blend but when it didn't work after month two I kind of gave up.  (To be fair perhaps I should have tried it longer but it really did taste awful).

There was also 6 months of acupuncture and various vitamin combinations, sex positions and timing routines.

Anyway after a year I visited my gynaecologist who said that she could help and knew lots of ways to get pregnant using medicine.  She convinced me that I had endometriosis after I told her I had painful periods so I had a laparoscopy.  I didn't have endo. 

I did have a bunch of blood tests which all came back fine (I missed my progesterone test though).  Not knowing why I couldn't seem to conceive again she put me on Clomid.  Clomid is a fertility drug.  It worked on cycle number #3 of taking it.

Again it worked probably because it balanced my hormones.

How this can help you

Because most sites will tell you that all you need to do to fall pregnant is track your ovulation and time sex well so that the sperm meets the egg.  If that works for you then great, but if it doesn't then don't give up.  Keep trying new things.  There are many ways to get pregnant and if natural methods don't work then see a doctor but above all believe that it will happen for you.

Baby dust!
