Taking Steps To Start Your Family

Once you decide to start your family, where do you go from there

Deciding to start your family is a huge step. If you’ve made that decision with your partner, congratulations! Now it’s all about the next steps in your family planning journey.

If you aren’t in the 30% of women who get pregnant within their first cycle (about a month), you might start to worry about your fertility and your ability to get pregnant.

It’s important to know that 80% of women will become pregnant after six cycles, or approximately six months.

But if you are hoping to start (or grow) your family a bit quicker than that, there are some steps you can take to help make getting pregnant as seamless as possible.

Start with a pre-pregnancy trip to a trusted doctor. A credible doctor will be able to discuss the most important topics when it comes to conceiving, like menstrual cycle timing and regularity, parents’ medical history, exercise, eating habits and more.

Lead a healthy and happy lifestyle. Simple changes like getting more sleep, and spending extra time with friends and family can do wonders for the body. Reducing stress is another important element as stress can cause irregular ovulation and can disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycle---affecting overall fertility. 

Understand your peak fertile days.  If a woman knows her most fertile days, it can help speed up the pregnancy and planning process. The FIRST RESPONSE™ Digital Ovulation Predictor Test is over 99% accurate for detecting a woman’s personal luteinizing hormone (LH) surge, giving an easy and accurate way to determine the two days a month when each woman is most likely to ovulate. If intercourse happens within the 24-36 hour window, this will maximize her chances of getting pregnant.

By helping to determine a woman’s unique peak fertility days, and understanding her body,

FIRST RESPONSE™ can help speed up the pregnancy process.

After a year if you’re still having trouble visit your doctor or a fertility specialist. They will be able to help you with your specific issues.
