It’s so important to regulate your cycles before you try to conceive. If you’re having irregular menstrual cycles or you don’t know what is going on with your cycles then you will need to have yourself checked by a doctor.
One of the things we hear often is this,”I’m trying to get pregnant and I’ve been trying for six months but I really don’t know when I’m ovulating because my cycles are irregular or I haven’t really tracked anything we’ve just been having fun and enjoying ourselves.”
Having fun is great and we strongly recommend it.
First thing to do before anything else is to try and regulate your cycle. Your cycles need to be predictable, they need to be consistent and you need to know when you are ovulating. If you have a predictable and consistent cycle not only can you have fun with intercourse but you can time it appropriately in your fertile window so that your chances at falling pregnant are maximised.
As humans we have a very small window of time where we can get pregnant and we want to make sure that we dial into our intercourse
especially around that time. So it’s important that your cycles are predictable, regular and consistent.
Another thing irregular periods shows about your body is that there’s something going on hormonally.
It is very important to plan ahead. If you know that you’re that you want to try to get pregnant in the next six months to a year from now or you’re about to get married and you know that sometime in the future you plan on building a family, then try and prepare your body for conception. Say okay I’ve got six months to work on getting my cycles in order and then use that time appropriately so that when you are
ready to start trying you’re ahead of the game. Take care of yourself and regulate your cycles.
Get to know your body. By being aware of yourself and by being aware of your cycles, you’re also more aware of your body, your health and your hormones. Get to know what works for you and what doesn’t work for you.
