Leave your socks on during sex and you'll definitely have a boy, you'd better not take a shower after sexual intercourse if you want to get pregnant, and conceive a baby in the riding position? – An impossibility!?
There are plenty of myths and absurd tips about getting pregnant. We know from our own experience that getting pregnant is not just easy and that the path through the labyrinth of myths does not exactly provide enlightenment – trackle dispels fables and promises and tells you what really helps.
Being overweight or underweight can actually have a negative impact on your desire to get pregnant. The resulting hormonal changes can have a negative impact on your menstrual cycle – and too much or too little weight can also affect your husband's sperm production.
It has been scientifically proven that lubricants are partly 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 sperm.
If you are trying to fulfil your desire to have children, you should do something good for yourself and your body. This includes abstaining from alcohol and nicotine. Both can have a negative impact on your fertility. You should also continue to avoid alcohol and cigarettes during pregnancy!
A healthy diet is generally quite important when it comes to getting pregnant, but even more relevant. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables and healthy carbohydrates such as bread, rice, potatoes and pasta – wholemeal products are particularly recommended. Animal and vegetable protein and fish are also part of a healthy diet. If you eat fatty fish such as salmon or herring, you should not eat them more than once a week. Dairy products such as cheese and yoghurt are important for your calcium levels.
Make sure you live a healthy life. Get enough sleep, watch your weight, exercise – but don't overdo it – and avoid alcohol and nicotine. This also applies to your partner. Eat a balanced diet and avoid crash diets. Take good care of yourself, you have something big planned.
Even though it might not 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 it. Besides, the chance of pregnancy is greatly increased by a moist vagina. The male sperm can make much better progress as a result.
Some praise positions in which the sperm penetrates as deeply as possible – others advise against exactly this. The fact is, there is no one position that will make you more likely to get pregnant. Do what you feel comfortable with, that's worth much more than any contortions!
On the contrary, sometimes very heavy menstruation indicates cycle disorders that make it more difficult for you to get pregnant. Talk to your gynaecologist about your desire to get pregnant and your menstruation. If you have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, your extreme bleeding could be the reason for your unfulfilled wish to have a child.
Squeeze your legs together and lie still so that you don't lose any sperm? That's nonsense! Scientifically, no increased number of pregnancies has been found when women lie down for longer. You can get up, take a shower and go to the toilet – the latter is even helpful against bladder infections!
This is a very sensitive topic – and what you really don't need is advice, myths or stupid questions. You need someone who can tell you exactly when you are fertile – no more, no less.
And it should also be fun. You don't want hormones (yet) – first understand what actually happens in your body and when.
Is that right so far?
Then trackle can help you. trackle measures your core body temperature at night and uses it to calculate your fertile time window. You can clearly see when ovulation has taken place in the current cycle – and when it is likely to take place in the next cycle. You and your partner can adjust to this.
The method is much more accurate than using ovulation test strips or measuring skin temperature – because both urine composition and ambient temperature can fluctuate greatly. Your core body temperature is the ideal fertility indicator.
Try it out!
trackle helps you to reliably recognise your fertile days and get pregnant faster. Your core body temperature measured overnight is combined with your cervical mucus data. Two values that precisely determine the fertility status of a woman.
