Myths About Pregnancy - What Are They?

You probably thought that it would be easy to get pregnant but now that you are actually trying it does not seem that easy.
You are getting desperate, asking all your friends and family tips and advice, how they were able to get pregnant.
Do not worry about what everyone's telling you because most of what everyone is telling you is not true, there are some major myths floating around this topic.
Let's bust them one by one - You will probably hear a lot of people saying that if you are not pregnant within a month or two of having stopped using contraceptives there is a problem.
There is a possibility of a problem with you or your husband if you are unable to conceive even a year after having unprotected sex.
It is perfectly normal to not get pregnant within the first few months of trying.
Very few people are lucky enough to get pregnant within the first few months of trying so do not panic.
A lot of people will also tell you that if you are healthy there cannot be infertility issues.
It is true that bad health, stress, smoking, drinking, drugs in either partner can reduce your chances of getting pregnant.
Lot of people find it difficult to believe that they are infertile or that someone close to them is infertile and therefore try very hard to deny infertility.
You could be very healthy but fertility is a different issue, it is possible that though you are otherwise healthy you have fertility issues.
Often people do not accept their fertility issues but keep wondering how to get pregnant.
It is a myth that if you are healthy you will be fertile therefore a woman and man must consult a specialist if they cannot get pregnant even a year after trying.
The sooner the problem is addressed the better are a woman or man's chances of getting the problem fixed.
It is often believed that if you have sex fourteen days after your menstruation you will get pregnant.
This myth is based on the fact that women ovulate roughly fifteen days after their periods but our body does not always perform like the clock works.
If you want to know for sure that you are ovulating or not use an ovulating strip to check which is far more reliable than the mentioned fourteen day theory.
Many women have slightly irregular periods which makes it very difficult to calculate their ovulation period but that does not mean that they have infertility issues.
There are probably more myths about how to get pregnant than any other subject.
Ignore the myths about how to get pregnant and take your doctor's advice if you need any.
The happier and less stress-free you are the better are your chances of conceiving
