Five Tips for Getting Pregnant

So, you’ve decided it is time to try to conceive. Where should you begin? You probably already know that you should discontinue birth control and not use condoms, but beyond that there is a lot of gray area. Don’t worry! Fertility Authority and EPT are here to help!

Check out this list of five things you should do if you are trying to conceive (TTC) for tips and instructions on how to take charge of your fertility.

If you are over the age of 35 and trying to conceive for six months or under the age of 35 and trying to conceive for one year, you may need a little extra assistance from a fertility doctor. A fertility workup with a Reproductive Endocrinologist won’t hurt and will give you a better understanding of your fertility. However if you have irregular or non-existent periods, confusing basal body temperature charts, or a slew of negative ovulation prediction tests, you should consult a fertility doctor without delay.
