There are many myths about getting pregnant circulating among those who are trying to conceive a baby and having trouble getting pregnant. I will go over some of those baby conception myths here and help you know the best way to get pregnant and the fastest way to conceive.
- 1 – First of all, most women who have not tried to conceive before think that they will have no fertility problem and no problems conceiving. Whether you are in your 20’s or in your 40’s, there is no guarantee that you will become pregnant by just having unprotected intercourse whenever you feel like it. Some women definitely do become pregnant this way – whether they want to conceive or not. Making babies frequently takes a more concentrated effort than just random unprotected sex.
- 2 – Next, ovulation does not necessarily occur on day 14 of a woman’s cycle. You may or may not ovulate on day 14, but you need to find out by different means of tracking your ovulation cycles. Ovulation and pregnancy go hand in hand – you cannot get pregnant without ovulation – so it is imperative that you know when you ovulate in order to get pregnant more quickly.

- 3 – Another fertility myth is that women are the only ones with fertility problems. About 40% of all infertility issues are caused by female factors, 40% are caused by male factors, and 20% are caused by a combination of both. Don’t leave out the potential for male factor infertility – an issue that plagues many couples. (Click here for more information on male factor infertility.)
- 4 – Lastly, many couples think that the best way to get pregnant is to have intercourse as much as possible when the woman thinks she is ovulating. Not so. The fastest way to conceive for those trying for a baby is to have baby making sex at 24- to 48-hour intervals up to and including ovulation day for those without male factor issues such as low sperm count (these couples should wait a day or so longer in order for the sperm count to build up).
I hope that these myths about getting pregnant have enlightened you some. For those of you with problems getting pregnant who are wondering, “Why can’t I get pregnant?” knowing how to get pregnant more quickly is not as difficult as it may sometimes seem.
I want to encourage you to educate yourself about your menstrual cycle and ovulation dates and begin to be more focused in your baby-making efforts.
