Some of the ancient traditional doctrines concerning sex and coitus have advocated the timing of the 24 hour day (the diurnal cycle) as a determinant. Indian literature has talked about having sex during the night and substantiates this view with the perfect synergism of the human body with the external environment and the body’s sex oriented responses – that ultimately increase the chances of conceiving!
Know your cycle
This is intrinsic to the lady trying to conceive. The menstrual cycle is ideally of 28 day duration and has phases of ovulation, endometrium build up, and dissolution of the endometrium in the form of period that span for 4-7 days. This cycle differs in every individual lady and it is necessary that the perfect timing is established. The required fertilization is achieved only when the sperm ejaculated in the cervix/uterus meets the ovum. The ovum is not present all the time in the uterus but it’s presence is a function of ovulation that is the release of the egg from the ovary and its reaching to the uterine cavity after traveling through the fallopian tubes. The chances are highest after ovulation when the ovum is available and the endometrium is well prepared to receive the implantation of the embryo.
Although women can count 14 days from the first day of their period to sense their ovulation but this is true only with the ladies with perfect cycles. The ovulation kits available in the market are good to know about the timing of ovulation in one’s body. These kits are the function of LH or Luteinizing Hormone running in the blood. The LH gets swelled up 36 hours prior to ovulation and is detected by the kit to generate an indication for the ripe time to engage.
Drop your contraceptive routines early!
Contraceptives have become a norm in today’s aware society and most couples try to delay their first birth after marriage. For this they engage in diverse types of contraceptives – both barrier type and hormonal! As for the barrier type (condoms and diaphragms) there is no problem in achieving fertility immediately but for the hormonal type (pills, IUCDs) it may take some time before the female body gets on to the normal sex cycles of fertility. It is therefore said by the experts that a lady who wants to conceive should drop her contraceptive routine well before the actual time planned by her. This brings her cycles of ovulation back on track.
It is advised that the couple should take a healthy diet that is full of energy and minerals especially those which regulate sexual health. An expert’s advice is in favor of a balanced diet that brings good proportions of every food component and thus reduces the deficiency gaps in the nutrition. Mineral and vitamin deficiencies are one of the prime causes of inconsistencies that prevent conception in spite of all physical requisites. Certain minerals and vitamins have been identified with locomotor function of the sperms as also their health!
