How can I increase my chances of fertility?

If you’re struggling to get pregnant, there are lots of options out there. The first step is to find a fertility specialist—a doctor who can help you understand your situation and point you in the right direction for getting pregnant. Then, it’s important to monitor your hormones and weight so that we can give your body the best chance of responding (or not responding) as we hope it will. And finally, if all else fails (which happens), there’s always adoption!

Meet with a fertility specialist

A fertility specialist is a doctor who specializes in helping people conceive. A fertility specialist can help you understand your options, guide you through the process and explain what it means to have a healthy pregnancy.

Get to know your cycle

When it comes to your fertility, you have a lot of control. If you know when and how often you ovulate, then you can be sure that the timing of intercourse will be right for conception.

One of the best ways to know when you’re most fertile is through basal body temperature (BBT). It’s a way to track your cycle and see where in it your temperatures are rising over time. You can buy an app like Fertility Friend that uses these readings as well as other factors such as cervical mucus levels or cervical position (how far from the cervix do they sit), which give insight into when ovulation occurs within each cycle—and this information helps predict what days could potentially lead up towards conception!

Monitor your hormones

Hormones are chemical messengers that help control your body’s functions. They play a key role in regulating the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and childbirth. The most common hormone is estrogen (or estradiol). It helps women with PMS symptoms before their periods start or when they’re on birth control pills.

There’s another kind of hormone called testosterone which is released by men during puberty to make them bigger and more muscular than other boys their age—and it can have an impact on fertility if levels are low enough after puberty! Other hormones include progesterone/estriol (the second most abundant female sex hormone) as well as FSH/LH (follicle-stimulating hormones). Each of these types can affect how well you ovulate or produce eggs during ovulation—which will affect whether you get pregnant during those times when egg follicles are growing inside each ovary.”

Watch your weight

It’s important to keep in mind that weight is one of the most common factors affecting fertility. Being overweight or obese can reduce your chances of conceiving, along with increasing your risk for miscarriage and other complications during pregnancy. If you’re trying to get pregnant and have been struggling with your BMI (Body Mass Index), it may be time for some serious dieting!

If you’re overweight, losing just 5% of your body weight can increase your chances of getting pregnant by up to 50%. As an example: if someone weighs 200 pounds but wants to lose 10 pounds before they try again (and they’ve already tried unsuccessfully once), they could end up closer to 190 pounds instead—a change that would improve their odds significantly.

Learn about all the options available

If you’re considering fertility treatment, it’s important to learn about all the options available. You’ll want to ask your doctor questions about what type of treatment is right for you and how long it will take. They should be able to help you make informed decisions about which option makes sense for your situation.

It’s also important that you work with a fertility specialist (like me!) who knows how to treat infertility issues in order to improve your chances of getting pregnant naturally or through assisted reproductive technology (ART). ART includes in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

You are not alone, and there is help out there.

Fertility is a common problem for couples who want to start a family. While some people can get pregnant on their own, many find that they need medical assistance in order to conceive. Fertility specialists are experts at helping you find the right option for your situation, navigating through all of your options so that you can make an informed decision and feel confident about what path will work best for your family.


Remember, it’s not your fault if you need help becoming pregnant. You can start on your journey to fertility today by getting a consultation with a fertility specialist, who will be able guide you through the different options available and show you how they work.
