Contraceptives and medication
If you have decided to conceive then the first and the foremost thing you should do is to stop medicines which you have been taking to avoid getting pregnant. Give yourself some time before you actually get pregnant and enjoy your sex life.
If you are taking any other medicine, stop taking the medicines. If you have already got pregnant, try as much as possible not to take any medication throughout pregnancy.
Both of you stop the use of contraceptives. Whether it is a condom or copper-T stop the use of it or get it removed.
Try having sex as many times as possible especially during the ovulation period. Generally the 14th day during two periods is the ovulation time. If, because of excess heat produced in the body, due to having sex repeatedly, it starts paining, give it a break for a day or two. Don’t force yourself into sex, just because you want to get pregnant.
Alcohol intake and smoking
After you have decided to get pregnant stop drinking alcohol and smoking. This is very bad for the kid.
Wear sexy and nice clothes, so that your husband or BF is attracted towards you and wants to have sex every now and then.
Folic acid intake is specially recommended if you are or going to be get pregnant.
Generally women and men think that as soon as they stop using the contraceptives, they get pregnant. This illusion is wrong. You may get pregnant the same month or a couple of months later. Give yourselves at least 4 to 5 months. This is the minimum time you need to get pregnant. Some lucky women conceive in the first month itself.
