How long does it take to get pregnant?
When thinking about motherhood, the woman reflects on the image of her femininity and pays attention to her body, as well as to her important role in reproduction. The fear of being sterile and not being successfully able to have children often surfaces, and it isn’t rare to see women worry about this after trying for months to conceive… don’t stress!
Keep in mind: the average duration to conceive a baby is 6 to 12 months. Only 1 out of 5 women will conceive in the first month.
Is baby keeping you waiting? No need to worry if you can’t manage to conceive during the first few tries. Keep in mind:
- If you’ve been using the Pill, your body may need some time to get back to work. Your ovaries have been on break chemically for some time now, and there may be some difficulties at the time when you want them to work.
- The ovulation process is a very complex thing, though it’s psychological before anything else. Learn how to relax yourself and accept how your body is working. Stop wanting to control it all. Wanting to manage your feminine role and deciding when certain things happen risks you unconsciously blocking your ovulation… the more you stress, the more your hormones will block ovulation. Relax, you are not a machine!
- For each cycle, you have a 20% chance of becoming pregnant. Just so you know, it’s just as frequent to see fertilization but no implantation. The large majority of women don’t notice this and think that it’s simply their period… Implantation is a complex phenomenon and you need to pay close attention to your body.
Medical Check-Ups are Vital before Trying for a Baby!
Before you start trying for a baby, it is essential to make an appointment at your General Practitioner’s office to tell them your desire to have a baby. This way you’ll learn all of the information that you’re going to need as well as receiving a complete physical exam. This will spare you a good number of following problems.
Things to monitor:
- Your teeth: Take care of any eventual tooth decay. This is a nest for susceptible microbes that could be transmitted to the baby through the bloodstream.
- Your family medical history: Diabetes, hypertension, etc.
- Blood type: If your rhesus is negative, tell your doctor.
- Your smoking or drinking habits: Consider getting help to stop these habits, if possible.
- Your weight: Being obese or underweight could alter your fertility.
- Toxoplasmosis or rubella: Have you been immunized? Are your vaccinations up to date?
