7. Pineapple Can Aid In Conception
Pineapple has an anti-inflammatory enzyme called Bromelain, which can help embryos implant into the uterine lining. To help with conception, you can try eating a whole pineapple over the course of five days following ovulation. This has also been advised for women who go past their due date.
8. You Can’t Get Pregnant If You Have Sex At The Wrong Time
You can have lots of sex, and have fun doing it, but if you do it at the wrong time, it won’t get you pregnant. Women are most fertile 2-5 days before ovulation and the day of ovulation. If you aren’t sure when you are ovulating, there are tons of free ovulation calculators online, as well as ovulation phone apps. Once you start tracking your cycle, you’ll know when your best chances of conceiving are.
9. Acupuncture Can Help You Conceive
I’m not sure I could ever go through with acupuncture. But if you’re trying to conceive, it’s said to be helpful, especially for women who choose IVF. Acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus, relaxing the muscle tissue and creating a thick lining. This gives the embryo(s) a better chance of implanting. If you’ve ever wanted to get over your fear of needles, maybe now is the time.
10. Dehydration Harms Reproductive Organs
Sadly, the human body doesn’t consider reproductive organs to be vital. So when we try to hydrate our body, it diverts the fluids away from the reproductive organs to care for the more important ones first. But fluid is important for egg follicles and the blood in the womb lining. As long as the rest of your body isn’t dehydrated, you’ll be able to hydrate your reproductive organs too.
