Tips for Getting Pregnant

Some couples may have a greater difficulty getting pregnant. So here are some important tips to get pregnant naturally and faster:

  • The man should ejaculate inside the woman’s vagina during her fertile period.
  • The couple should have a day to day relationship, not a day,  during the fertile period.
  • Both men and women should eat foods rich in vitamin E daily , such as meats, eggs and wheat germ, as they act at the hormonal level, increasing the chances of conception.
  • The woman should lie down for 15 minutes after ejaculation, to facilitate the arrival of the spermatozoa to the ovum.
  • The couple should treat any reproductive system disease before attempting to conceive.
  • The woman should lose about 10 to 20% if she is overweight and if she has polycystic ovary syndrome.
  • The woman should not take any medication without the knowledge of the doctor, as many may cause some malformation in the baby, such as diclofenac sodium.

Diclofenac sodium is contraindicated at the beginning and at the end of pregnancy, because it is an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis, which keeps the baby’s ductus arteriose open, which may result in fetal heart failure, and therefore anyone who is trying to get pregnant should not take it . Some medicines that contain diclofenac are: Voltaren, Cataflan, Torsilax, Tandrilax, Alginac, Flotac and Biofenac. Dipyrone can be used in pregnancy for pain or fever.

Another important tip for anyone who wants to get pregnant is to start taking daily folic acid tablets about 3 months before attempting to conceive. This care is very important to avoid neurological problems in the baby, such as spina bifida.

Besides these tips, it is important that the couple avoid stress, anxiety and have good eating habits, in addition to practicing some type of physical activity regularly. Processed, high-fat foods, alcoholic beverages and cigarettes should be disposed of.
