Just get pregnant?

We know from our own experience that getting pregnant is not always easy. That's why we clear up myths and give you tips to help you get pregnant.

  • Tip 1: Watch your weight if you want to get pregnant!

    Being overweight or underweight can actually have a negative impact on your desire to become pregnant. The resulting hormonal changes can have a negative impact on your health cycle - too much or too little weight can also affect sperm production in your husband.

  • Tip 2: Do without conventional lubricants!

    It has been scientifically proven that lubricants are sometimes harmful to sperm and often prevent them from reaching the fallopian tube. The reason for this is often lubricants whose pH value is too low. The pH value is crucial for the mobility of the sperm.

  • Tip 3: Avoid alcohol and cigarettes!

    If you try to fulfill your desire to have children, you should do yourself and your body good. This also includes abstaining from alcohol and nicotine. Both can negatively affect your fertility. You should continue to avoid alcohol and cigarettes during pregnancy!

  • Tip 4: Eat the right diet when trying to get pregnant

    Eating healthy is generally pretty important when it comes to conceiving, but all the more so. Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and take in healthy carbohydrates such as bread, rice, potatoes and pasta - whole grain products are particularly recommended here. Animal and vegetable protein and fish are also part of a healthy diet. However, if you eat fatty fish such as salmon or herring, you shouldn't do it more than once a week. Dairy products like cheese and yogurt are important for your calcium levels.

  • Tip 5: Take care of your health!

    Make sure you live healthy. Get enough sleep, watch your weight, exercise - but don't overdo it - and avoid alcohol and nicotine. This also applies to your partner, by the way. Eat a balanced diet and avoid crash diets. Take care of yourself, you have big plans.

  • Tip 6: Getting pregnant should still be fun

    Even if it doesn't sound like a tip at first: don't forget to have fun during sex. Trying to get pregnant can feel tedious and is a lot of work. Nevertheless, you should still enjoy the whole thing. Also: The chance of pregnancy is significantly increased by a wet vagina. The male sperm can thus advance much better.

  • In which position can I get pregnant faster?

    Some praise positions in which the sperm penetrates as deeply as possible - others advise against it. The fact is: there is no right position that makes it easier for you to get pregnant. Do what you feel comfortable with, it's worth a lot more than any contortions!  

  • Am I more fertile if my bleeding is extremely long?

    On the contrary - sometimes a very heavy menstrual period indicates a menstrual cycle disorder that makes your desire to become pregnant more difficult. Talk to your gynecologist about your desire to get pregnant and your menstruation. Because if you have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, your extreme bleeding could be the reason for your unfulfilled desire to have children.

  • Does lying down after sex help you get pregnant?

    Squeeze your legs and lie down so that no sperm are lost? This is nonsense! Scientifically, no increased number of pregnancies could be determined if women stayed longer. You can then get up, take a shower and go to the toilet - the latter is even helpful against bladder infections!

Is that right?

Then trackle can help you. trackle measures yours at night core body temperature and uses it to calculate your fertile window of time. You can clearly see when ovulation occurs in the current cycle has taken place - and when it is likely to take place in the next cycle. You and your partner can adapt to this.

The method is much more precise than using ovulation test strips or measuring skin temperature - because both the composition of urine and the ambient temperature can vary greatly. Your core body temperature is the ideal indicator of fertility.
