If you’ve only recently quit taking the pill, then remember it can take up to 6 months for your cycle to return to normal. This time period can take longer for some women and might even be shorter for others. Try not to become frustrated and stressed out over the amount of time it takes for your body to adjust to being off the pill.
6 Don’t Smoke or Consume Alcohol

Not only are both of these bad for your health, but also for the baby’s. When you are trying to become pregnant, it’s wise to start changing your habits well before the baby arrives. It’s also hard to keep track of the actual date of conception. This means you might not know you are already pregnant and end up drinking a few beers one night. It’s best to try and give your baby a healthy start as soon as possible. Try to get your body ready for pregnancy in advance. There are a lot of changes it will have to go through and you need to be as healthy as possible.
5 Stop Drinking Caffeine

Caffeinated drinks might be the boost you need in the morning before heading off to work, but they can actually work against you when pregnancy is your goal. The body isn’t able to absorb iron the way it should when too much caffeine is consumed. A lack of iron is a large cause for stillborn babies.
4 Make Your Internal Environment Sperm-friendly

This means ditch the scented tampons, avoid vaginal sprays, don’t douche, and maybe even use some sperm-friendly lubricant. There is a special kind of lubricant made specifically for women who are trying to become pregnant.
3 Wear Something Sexy

This doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy a new negligee for your husband to see. As long as you feel sexy, that’s what matters. Haven’t you ever bought a new pair of underwear and felt great as soon as you put them on? No one even knows you’re wearing new undies, but they make you feel sexy, right? Do something for yourself. As long as you feel good about yourself, then you’ll give off great vibes to your hubby as well.
2 Monitor Your Temperature

During ovulation your body temperature is high. There are some women who find it extremely helpful to take their temperature multiple times a day, every day, in order to keep track of when the peak ovulation time is. Many doctors also suggest this method of keeping track of your most fertile time of the month.

Stress can be a huge factor in keeping women from becoming pregnant. Some couples end up trying so hard to have a child that they are both stressed out and can’t seem to conceive. It is usually during a vacation or some other stress-reducing situation that enables them to relax and conception occurs most of the time. There have been quite a few babies conceived while on vacation.
The 7 tips on getting pregnant that are mentioned above have all been found to work for nearly every woman who has tried them. There has been a lot of research done on many different techniques used for getting pregnant easily. I personally can’t imagine life without my children. Have you recently read or heard about any additional tips for becoming pregnant?
