What better place to get fertility tips than from moms who have already been there? Trying to get pregnant can be both an exciting and a trying time, and women who are trying to conceive are usually looking for all of the help and advice that they can get. Read on for some great fertility tips from moms who have been there before.

1. Try An OPK

It’s not really a secret, but over the counter ovulation predictor kits are a great option for women who are trying to conceive and are not sure where to start. Ovulation Predictor Kits, or OPKs, are an at home test, much like a home pregnancy test, that women can take every day to determine when they are ovulating. Once you know that you are ovulating, it’s time to get busy and try to make a baby.


2. Have Sex

It might sound simple, but the only way to get pregnant is to have sex on your fertile days. Once you know when your fertile days are, go ahead and make sure you are having plenty of sex. Some couples have sex a day or two before ovulation, some have sex on ovulation day only, and some have sex each day for the whole week of ovulation. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you are getting busy.


3. Take Care Of Your Body

One of the best things you can do for your body when you are trying to conceive is to just plain take care of it. Make sure that you are at a healthy weight. Take a daily multi or prenatal vitamin. Exercise every single day and make sure to get plenty of sleep.


Avoid smoking, drugs, alcohol and processed junk foods. Eat a diet full of lean meat, whole grains, fruits, veggies and dairy. Be careful of every single thing that your body comes into contact with when you are trying to conceive.

4. Think Outside The Box

Women sometimes get stuck in a rut when it is time to conceive, and they just keep trying the same things over and over again. Some moms say what worked for them was thinking outside of the box. Trying herbal fertility treatments, acupuncture therapy, and massage therapy, just to name a few, are a great way to think beyond the normal “have sex, repeat” that most couples try in order to get pregnant.


5. Ask Your Doctor

Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor if you are having trouble getting pregnant and want some additional tips or advice. The rule of thumb is to see your doctor if you are over 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for more than six months. If you are under 35, you should wait a year before seeing a fertility specialist.
