Increase your fertility
If you're trying for a baby and not having much luck, don't despair. 84% of couples having regular sex will get pregnant within a year. But we understand a year can feel like a really long time, so to maximise your chances of getting pregnant quickly, read through our 46 ways to boost your fertility to see what simple changes you could make to your lifestyle that could increase your chances of getting pregnant.
From diet and exercise to understanding your ovulation cycle and dispelling the myths, our guide to increasing your fertility will give you really useful information to help you get your body in the best possible shape to conceive. You can even try using our ovulation calculator to work out when you are most fertile.
It's important not to forget it takes two people to make a baby, which is why we've also got tips for boosting male fertility in our round-up as well.
We've also got some advice on the best sex positions for conception, which will hopefully introduce a little bit of fun into what can be a pretty stressful time in a couple's life.
Trying to get pregnant can certainly be a challenge, but remember, no matter what path you ultimately take to parenthood, there's lots of professional and personal help available to support you if you're struggling.
Your fertility is affected by lots of different factors, including age, lifestyle and biology, so don't be afraid to reach out to your doctor and ask for advice to give yourself the best possible chance. They'll be able to reassure you and talk you through potential options for your fertility problems, including medication and IVF.
