Let your man eat healthy as well
Eating healthy should go both ways between you and your partner. Eating fertility foods is also a must. This includes oysters, fruits and veggies, and juices with honey in it. Also, give your man lots of fruits that contain citrus, tomatoes, and berries. Vitamin C is also a must.
Increase your iron and dairy intake
Aside from eating greens and citrus fruits, dairy also helps in your fertility. Studies show that if you take at least one full-fat dairy daily it will decrease your chance of being infertile. Dairy and iron-rich foods can help you produce healthy eggs for reproduction.
Take prenatal vitamins
With this, make sure you have consulted your doctor. Prenatal vitamins are important if you want to get pregnant because this will serve as your insurance for you and your future baby. A daily supplement can lower your chance of giving premature birth.
Cut of your vices, including coffee
Caffeine is not good if you want to get pregnant and if you are already pregnant. If you smoke and drink, you need to cut those off as well together with your caffeine intake because it will surely affect your attempt to conceive.
Cut the lubricant use
If you want to get pregnant faster, you also need to cut the lubricant use off. Lubricants, especially those who are oil-based, can change the cervical mucus and the pH of your vagina, and this will make it hard for the sperm to find it's way to the egg. Get your natural juices flowing in a natural way-- the foreplay way.
Don't stress out
If the first attempt did not work out, don't stress out. You need to do something about your stress and anxiety. Working out is a good option, and you can try yoga and take Zumba classes. You can also listen to your favorite music. Try all your stress relievers and try to avoid things that will stress you for you to have a successful pregnancy.
