When the "biological clock" is ticking really loudly, having a baby can't happen fast enough! In theory, it's all very simple. But there are one or two mistakes you should avoid in order to get pregnant faster.

Pregnancy can be an exciting, beautiful and very demanding time. But it is always one thing in any case: a small miracle. So that you can enjoy this wonderful episode of your life as soon as possible, you should know a few things about your body and yourself beforehand. And how to avoid the 7 most common mistakes to get pregnant faster.

Mistake 1: You don't know about your own cycle.

Pregnant faster

femSense hilft dir, schneller schwanger zu werden

A woman's cycle is a complex interplay of hormones and metabolic processes. And although almost every woman has a menstrual cycle, very few people really know about it. When does ovulation take place again? And can you get pregnant throughout your cycle? Even the most beautiful "little sheep" is useless if you don't know whether you are fertile at all! That's why you should start at the beginning of your fertility journey, track your cycle.

Simple menstrual calendars can give you a rough overview. However, in order to determine your fertile period (and the perfect time to get pregnant), you need to monitor your cycle more closely. For example with femSense, that continuously measures your body temperature and tells you when you can get pregnant.

Fehler 2: Du hast zu häufig Sex, um schneller schwanger zu werden.

The more often you have sex, the higher the "hit rate". It is often said that couples who want to have children should have sex every two days. But what is true?

In principle, sperm quality is better with regular intercourse. This is because the longer it has been since ejaculation, the higher the probability that "ready" sperm will become tired or fail to develop. However, the sperm count decreases with very frequent sex. The "production" simply doesn't keep up. It is therefore absolutely fine to take a day off in between. If you know your fertile time and are able to track your cycle, e.g. with femSense track, you can plan better as a couple and enjoy your moments together even more.

Mistake 3: You are living unhealthily.

We have good news and bad news. The bad news first: if you want to get pregnant faster, you should give up a few things. For example, smoking, too much alcohol, too little sleep, too much junk food or too little exercise. All of these things can affect your fertility. The same also applies to your partner.

The good news as a small "consolation": Doing without it doesn't just help you get pregnant. As a couple, you are also doing something good for yourselves - and your future child. Because nothing is as important as our health!

Mistake 4: You are using the wrong personal lubricant.

Gleitgel fördert die Lust beim Sex. Aber wusstest du schon, dass es dich beim schneller Schwanger werden behindern kann? Denn viele Gleitgele haben einen leicht sauren pH-Wert. Das ist zwar gut für deine Scheidenflora, kann die Beweglichkeit der Spermien aber einschränken. Darum solltest du in der Kinderwunsch-Zeit entweder darauf verzichten oder auf Marken mit optimiertem pH-Wert zurückgreifen. Sie schaffen ein „spermienfreundliches“ Milieu und unterstützen dich so sogar beim Schwanger werden.

Mistake 5: You rely on strange half-knowledge about getting pregnant.

Kopfstand nach dem Sex, Geschlecht durch den Zeitpunkt des Geschlechtsverkehrs bestimmen, bestimmte Kräuter einnehmen… Rund um das Thema „Schneller Schwanger werden“ ranken sich viele Geschichten. Gerne werden diese im Bekanntenkreis erzählt und empfohlen, denn: „Meine Nachbarin / Freundin / Friseurin ist so sofort schwanger geworden!“

The fact is that the effect of most of these recommendations is neither proven nor demonstrable. Of course you can try them out. But you shouldn't hope for miracles. The best help is still Solid knowledge of your own cycle und ein gesunder Lebensstil, wenn du schneller schwanger werden möchtest.

Mistake 6: You are using ovulation tests to get pregnant "incorrectly".

Ovulation tests are a practical thing. Similar to a pregnancy test, they measure the hormone levels in your urine. The stronger the "line" on the test, the more favourable the time to get pregnant.

But be careful: don't wait for the line on the ovulation test to be strong enough! Otherwise it can easily happen that you miss ovulation and the fertile period. It's best to start "practising" some time in advance - and use ovulation tests in addition to cycle tracking.

Mistake 7: You don't go to the gynaecologist regularly.

Zugegeben: Ein Besuch beim Arzt macht dich nicht automatisch fruchtbarer. Aber dein Frauenarzt kann relativ einfach Erkrankungen oder Probleme in deinem Körper feststellen, die erschweren können, dass du schneller schwanger wirst. Zum Beispiel Verklebungen, Myome, hormonelle Störungen oder ähnliches. Er kann dich beraten oder zu Spezialisten weiterverweisen. Also: Nimm deine Termine beim Frauenarzt regelmäßig wahr, schon allein wegen der wichtigen Vorsorgeuntersuchung!

As you can see, most of this can be avoided and realised relatively easily. Of course, getting pregnant always involves a little bit of luck. But avoiding mistakes and, above all, tracking your cycle can help you get lucky. We wish you every success!
