Things ladies can do to get pregnant fast

You may have spent most of your sex life trying to avoid having a baby, but now you've ditched the condoms and come off the Pill, getting pregnant may not happen as quickly as you expect. Are there things you can do to get pregnant fast? It's certainly possible.

Discontinue Your Birth Control

Obviously, if you want to get pregnant, you need to stop using birth control. What you may not know is that you may need time for your fertility to return. It depends on what kind of birth control you were using.

Have Lots of Sex

You could aim to have sex every day of your cycle, but for most people, this will lead to burnout, and it's really not necessary. Having sex at least three to four times a week boosts your chances for success because it increases having sex on your most fertile days. If you're only aiming for ovulation and you make a mistake, you may lose that month.

Frequent sex improves sperm health, too. Healthier swimmers mean you'll be more likely to conceive.

Optimize Your Baby-Making Sex

You may be able to get pregnant faster if you optimize your conception sex.

Research has found that sexual arousal plays a role in how much sperm is ejaculated. Female orgasm may also help with conception. Having passionate sex may help you get pregnant faster as well. That said, don’t stress about having an orgasm. It’s not required!

Optimize Your Fertility Health

In the short-term, there are quite a few things (many of which are probably obvious) that a woman can do—and not do—to increase her chances of getting pregnant.


Get enough sleep. Odd sleep and wake cycles can throw off the menstrual cycle, which is unlikely to lead to infertility but could make getting pregnant quickly more difficult.

Eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water. Avoid binge diets or other extreme eating plans when trying to conceive.

Cut back on caffeinated beverages. It’s debatable whether or not they impact fertility, but since you want to get pregnant fast, whatever you can do to optimize your overall health is best.


Get too stressed out. It's still unclear whether or not stress leads to infertility. However, acute stress can throw off a woman's cycle. For those trying to get pregnant in a month or two, just a one-off cycle can put a serious dent in those plans.

Douche. When you do, you disrupt the vagina's natural pH balance, wash away cervical mucus(which keeps sperm moving), and partially eliminate good bacteria. You also increase your risk of vaginal infection and irritation, which can make it difficult to conceive.

Go Easy on the Pregnancy Tests

Taking pregnancy tests won’t change how quickly you get pregnant, but it can affect your perception of time. Especially if you take multiple early tests, “peeing on a stick” frequently can make the days and weeks feel much longer.

Instead, commit to only taking a pregnancy test when your period is at least one day late. In other words, if you expected your period on Tuesday or Wednesday of a particular week, don’t take the test until Thursday. Better yet, wait until Friday. It’s not easy to wait to see if you’re pregnant, but remind yourself that when you take an early test, you are more likely to get a false negative anyway. (In other words, even if you did conceive, the test may not reveal your success.)

Get Medical Help If You Need It

If you don't conceive within six months (if you're over 35) or within a year (if you're younger than 35), see your doctor.

Getting help doesn't mean you're giving up; it just means you're brave enough to find out if there's a reason why you're not conceiving, and whether you can take steps to address it.

Some causes of infertility get worse with time. Getting help when you need it may help you get pregnant faster with the help of treatment.
