Trying to conceive and having difficulty can be very stressful, especially if you have been trying for a while without success.  It is important to take care of yourself and to reduce your stress levels in order to stay healthy and increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

The tips below can help you keep your sanity while trying to conceive:

Enjoy Sex

Sex plays a large role in feeling connected with your spouse.  Additionally, a healthy sex life can improve your mood and overall wellbeing.  It is easy to become so focused on conceiving that you neglect both your needs and the needs of your partner.  Take the initiative to spend some personal time with your partner and rekindle some of the intimacy that trying to conceive can take away.

Build a Support System

There are a lot of emotions involved with fertility care.  It is common to become frustrated, especially if people in your circle are starting families with seemingly no effort.   Have a few individuals that you can be open and honest about your feelings with.  A quality fertility center will offer support groups to allow you to speak with other couples who are faced with similar issues.  Feeling as though you are not alone in fertility struggles goes a long way.

Take Care of Yourself

While you’re charting your cycle and measuring your basal body temperature, schedule some time to relax and take care of yourself. You have to have stress free periods where you can focus on your own happiness.  Take time to participate in activities that make you happy.  Yoga is a great way to exercise and reduce stress and can improve your health and fertility.

If you’ve been trying to conceive for more than six months without success you may want to speak with a fertility expert.  The fertility care team at New Hope Fertility Center can work with you to uncover the root cause for your delay in getting pregnant.  We offer a number of holistic options for fertility care and customize treatment plans based on the needs of each patient.
