Sod it, Here You go ladie's. TIP'S BY BETH KILEY.
Since you're here, I imagine that you may befeeling frustrated at not being pregnant yet. I knowexactly how you feel, as I was in the same positionmyself some years back. I am willing to bet that many couples who arefinding it difficult to get pregnant, are makingsome of the exact same mistakes that I was making.Here's the first one...Did you know that somethingas simple as using the wrong lubrication when you haveintercourse can spoil your chances of getting pregnant? I hadno idea! In fact, I thought a little lubrication wouldactually help--were you thinking the same thing too?Well, it turns out, most store-bought lubricants willdamage the sperm and so they are strictly forbidden! Thesame goes for vaseline or KY jelly. If you are using thistype of lubrication, you could be reducing your chances ofconceiving by half!!!Luckily, there are a couple of things you can use as asubstitute. One is eggwhites. Yup, as in real eggs! You just leave one out for a while (they're much too cold,straight from the fridge), and then you crack it open anduse the eggwhite (not the yolk) in place of lubrication. Believe it or not, eggwhites are extremely sperm friendly!!Another option is a fantastic product called Pre-Seed, which isspecifically designed not to be harmful to sperm. If youcan't find it locally, it can be purchased online here:<a title="" href="http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?early-pregnancy-tests+3RTfef+pre-seed.html%20" target="_blank"><span style="color: #0068cf;">Get Pre-Seed</a>Lastly, one of the best ways to improve your chance ofgetting pregnant is to increase your natural lubrication.This can be achieved by introducing more foreplay intoyour "baby-making activities" which will increase yourarousal and therefore you will have more naturallubrication to help the sperm to stay alive. Also, if aman is more aroused, he will have a better ejaculationwhich results in more sperm, which is a good thing!!I hope you enjoyed that first tip...stay tuned for anotherlesson tomorrow which is all about "sperm-saving."
TIP 2 BY BETH KILEY.
Right now, there's a VERY good chance somethingyou are doing or not doing is standing in yourway of getting pregnant.Today I want to share with you tip #2 which comesfrom Chapter 2 of my e-book which deals with someof the ABC's of conception, and how to boostyour odds of conceiving quickly.In this chapter, I teach all of the fundamentalsinvolved in getting pregnant, including timing,positions, and quite a few secrets I'm not at libertyto divulge here.But getting back to tip #2...many couples areunder the mistaken impression that it ishelpful to avoid sex during the month exceptfor the time around ovulation. This comes fromthe idea that if you "save up" the sperm, they willbe more plentiful when you need them! Turns out, this is a very BIG mistake. It'strue, if you save up the sperm, you mightactually have more when your fertile timeof the month comes, but there's one bigproblem. Most of these sperm will be tired,and sluggish, and unable to fertilize youregg!In order to have the best chance of conception,it is necessary to keep the sperm supply fresh!That means your partner should be ejaculatingat least every 5 days throughout the month. Then,when approaching ovulation, it is time to increasethe frequency of intercourse to improve your chanceof conception. If you would like step-by-step details of how to trackovulation, improve timing and determine the frequencyof intercourse that would work best for you, checkout chapter 2 when reading my ebook, <a title="" href="http://www.personalpathtopregnancy.com/gettingpregnant.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: #0068cf;">Personal Pathto Pregnancy.</a>
TIP 3 BY BETH KILEY.
sorry repeated tip 2 as tip 3 my mistake.
Okay, let's dive right in to tip #3,direct from chapter 4 in my e-book,Personal Path to Pregnancy.In it, I give you all the details on manyvitamins that you and your partner can betaking that can have a significant impacton your fertility. You would be amazed!For now, I'm going to talk about one thatyou need to avoid, as it can actually ruinyour chances of getting pregnant if youtake the wrong dosage. What am I talkingabout? I'm talking about Vitamin C. Here's the deal..Taking some vitamin C is actually a great idea,because vitamin C (in small doses) can do somethingwonderful to increase your fertility. It actuallyimproves your cervical fluid. You may know thatthe cervical fluid is crucial for transportingthe sperm to your cervix and on to your uterus,where it will eventually meet up with your egg.Without good quality cervical fluid, the sperm justdoesn't have a chance of surviving for very long.But here's the catch...Too much vitamin C can havethe opposite effect. Yeah, that's right...too muchcan cause your cervical fluid to dry up, and thatcan just about ruin your chance of ever gettingpregnant. So you must be extremely careful to avoidtaking high doses of vitamin C supplements (especiallyduring cold and flu season where we're often advised to load up on vitamin C).How much is too much?? I would recommend 500mg ofvitamin C supplements daily, or you can go as high as1000mg, but definitely do not take more than 1000mgper day.Speaking of cervical fluid, there are several other thingsyou can do to improve the amount and quality of yourcervical fluid. If you want to read about all of them,you'll find the information discussed in detail inchapter 4 of my e-book...
TIP 4 BY BETH KILEY.
Alright, the next tip for getting pregnant isabout stress. This is sometimes adelicate topic among couples trying to getpregnant. People are always saying...."justrelax, and it'll happen." Sheesh, don't theyknow that comment just causes even more stress!!If you could just get pregnant, you wouldn'tbe so stressed, yet being stressed might bekeeping you from getting pregnant. Talk abouta catch-22!In any event, I am not going to tell you, "hey,just relax", but I will point out that there areincreasing reports of the link between stress andfertility.But here's something very interesting...In some recent studies, women exposed to "laughtertherapy" actually had greater pregnancy rates thanthose who did not participate. What is laughtertherapy?It's just what you might think. For at least 15 minutesa day (more is better), you need to find an activitythat makes you laugh!! Personally, I think one ofthe best ways to do this is to watch a comedy showon TV, or rent a really funny movie. Or you canvisit a comedy club if there is one in your area.It doesn't really matter what it is, as long as you aredoing something that makes you laugh!!Believe it or not, this works much better than tryingto force yourself to relax!! Give it a try and seeif it makes a difference!
TIP 5 BY BETH KILEY.
Today I 'm going to talk about a food that canbe both good and bad for your fertility, somake sure you read this carefully to learnthe difference.There is a food that some pregnant womenknow to avoid, but not many women who are trying toget pregnant know about this. What am Ireferring to?FISHNo, I do not mean to avoid all fish, because mostfish can be beneficial to your fertility as it is highin Omega 3 fatty acids. The fish you need toavoid are the ones that are high in mercury. Here's why. When you conceive, and then find outyou're pregnant about 2 weeks later when your perioddoesn't show up, the baby has already been exposedto everything you have put in your body during those two weeks. Now hopefully, you have cut out mostof the obvious things that would be harmful to the baby,but you might not have thought about fish high inmercury.Mercury can get stored up in your bloodstream fromtoo much consumption, and then passed on to thedeveloping baby. Too much mercury can effect thenervous system of an unborn baby.One fish that many people eat quite frequently is "white"tuna fish in the can. This can have high levels of toxicmercury in it and should be eaten only in small quantities.You should completely avoid shark, swordfish, kingmackerel, and tile fish (also called golden or white snapper),tuna steaks (fresh or frozen), orange roughy, Spanishmackerel, marlin, and grouper because these fish containthe highest levels of mercury.But remember, do not avoid all fish, only those thatare high in mercury, because fish is loaded with protein,vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids -- all of which are animportant part of a healthy diet. There are plenty of goodfish choices such as salmon, rainbow trout, and cannedmackerel, for instance -- that contain low levels of mercuryand are high in healthy fats.
TIP 6 BY BETH KILEY.
You may have heard, there has been anongoing debate about whether drinking coffee(or other caffeinated beverages) cancause a delay in getting pregnant.Studies have been done and theresearch is mixed--some conclude yes,others conclude no.Some studies now suggest that evenone cup of coffee per day can reducea woman's chances of getting pregnantwithin a 12-month period by morethan 50%!
TIP 7 BY BETH KILEY. LAST TIP.
This is the final segment of my report on "7 MistakesTo Avoid" in order to get pregnant faster.I hope you have enjoyed reading these tips asmuch as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. And most of all, I hope you remember to avoidall the things I discussed, so you can increaseyour chances of getting pregnant faster.Today, I'm going to conclude this series witha tip on medications that men should avoid.When trying to get pregnant it's veryimportant for both partners to eliminate as manymedications from your routine as possible.Talk with your physician about your prescriptionmedications as you may need to discontinue use ortry something new.It's important to remember that male fertility factorscontribute to approximately 40% of all infertility cases.Getting pregnant is not just a woman's problem!For men, medications to control a chronic conditionsuch as high blood pressure, inflammatory boweldisease or gout, or to suppress the immune reactionto a transplanted organ may all have a harmfuleffect on fertility.One popular medication that has been known tolower sperm count and fertility in men is Tagamet -used to treat ulcers, gastrointestinal problems, andurinary tract infections. This medication can have aharmful effect on sperm production as well assperm count.What should you do if your partner is using Tagamet?Have him stop taking it if possible or check with hisdoctor to see if there is an alternative that will nothave any damaging effect on sperm.Even under the best circumstances, only 50 to 70percent of a man's sperm are healthy enough tofertilize an egg. Sperm can be especially vulnerableto environmental factors, such as exposure to excessiveheat or toxic chemicals.
