Contrary to popular belief, you don’t get pregnant anytime you have unprotected sex. There’s only a window of 24-48 hours during your ovulation when you are the most fertile. But having intercourse before and after your fertile days also help as the sperm remains in your Fallopian tube for long.
But how to know when you are ovulating? Once decided to have a baby, Rishi and I were quite impatient. So I visited my doctor every couple of days after a week from my menstrual date. She would vaginally examine me. A week later, she confirmed that I was ovulating. I didn’t know, at that time, there were Ovulation Prediction Kits readily available in the market using which you can find out your fertile days sitting right at home.
So we had unprotected sex daily for the next 3-4 days. But even during sex we took care of a few things for fast conception.
What you can do to get pregnant fast?
- Have intercourse as much as possible once you know of your ovulation period. Turn it into a sex marathon. It helps in producing fresh and healthy sperm.
- Have intercourse in doggy style or man-on-top position. They help in positioning the sperm as near to your cervix as possible.
- Also, after sex keep lying on the bed for some time and please don’t rush to the bathroom to pee. I know it sounds gross but that’s how it works.
- And please enjoy. What’s the point of creating a baby if you don’t enjoy the work behind it? 😉
