Many women find it easy to get pregnant while others find it difficult. Getting pregnant is said to give fulfillment among women that is why they want to experience the art of giving birth despite of the tedious months bearing with their own weight plus the baby’s weight, go through unexplainable labor pains and experience series of bodily changes as brought by postpartum period.
Many couples want to bear children as this gives them happiness in life. But what is there to do when couples fail to produce children the fastest way they can ? They need to go to the doctor and get checked for any differences in their reproductive systems or perhaps get more informed about how to get pregnant the easiest way as many couples still do not know the perfect timing when to unite the egg and the sperm.
Knowing about ovulation and when could this happen is very important. Every women goes through ovulation every month and the ovulation days vary from one woman to another as their menstrual period can go for a 28-day cycle or longer or shorter for some. During this time, a mature egg is released from the follicle developed in the ovary and has the ability to be fertilized within 12 to 48 hours. Women are said to be fertile during ovulation and this period makes it perfect for them to conceive.
What are the chances of conceiving during ovulation? Couples can have sexual intercourse four to five days prior to ovulation and within 12 to 48 hours after the egg is released as the sperm can survive for 4 to 5 days in women’s reproductive system, making it available for the egg, thus escalating their chances of conceiving as sperm can also better penetrate with the egg during these times.
It is also during ovulation that the uterus is prepared for fertilization and pregnancy as the uterine lining is thickened and increased progesterone are produced, making it a perfect bed for the fetus, therefore making way to a healthy pregnancy.
When women cannot get the right timing for ovulation by counting the calendar days, they can observe for physical signs that are indicative of ovulation. Women get to experience vaginal discharges that are cloudy prior to ovulation and get to have cervical mucus that is clear, slippery and stretchy, comparable to an egg white, when they are ovulating. Breast tenderness, lower abdominal discomfort (also known as “mittelschmerz”) and slight increase of basal body temperature are also observed.
Couples can get into intimacy as much as possible during fertile days and experience the joy along with the process of building a family through their patience and determination. Rewards are experienced after successfully getting pregnant and bear a healthy and beautiful baby.
