Natural ways to become Pregnant Fast
1. Plan your sexual activity
Since zygote formation basically depends on the union of an egg with sperm, it is important to bear in mind as to when the chance of fusion is the highest. Thus planning your sexual activity accordingly may prove to be rewarding.
Midway between women’s menstrual cycle ovulation generally takes place. By virtue of it, egg is released from ovary- one of the most vital constituents of the reproductive system. The egg so released can be fertilized only in a day’s time of twenty-four hours, whereas man’s sperm is potentially capacitated to stay active over a period more than forty-eight to seventy-two hours. So sexual activity must be so planned that it takes place at least seventy-two hours before ovulation.
2. Maintain a Temperature Chart
Women can easily keep a tab on their ovulation by maintaining a temperature chart. Usually, around the time of ovulation, there is a spike in the temperature of women.
3. Keep a calm atmosphere
Stress and strain have a significant role to play in respect of reproductive cycle including ovulation and menstruation. So if you are planning to get pregnant see to it that your partner as well as you are calm and collected.
4. Sex in intervals
Avoid having sex too often to keep up the quality of sperm production. It is always a wiser option to plan it after every two days, but ensure that you do not miss out the time of ovulation. Besides this, it is advisable that men ejaculate after every two to three days.
5. Balanced Body weight
Diet, weight, physical fitness, and lifestyle have a direct bearing on pregnancy. This holds true for both men and women.

Cervical mucus or the fluid content thereof has an important role to play in facilitating the motility of sperm. Both Vitamin C and grape seeds add to the water content of the cervical mucus. Apart from opting for fruits enriched with Vitamin C sufficient amount of water should also be taken because the fluid intake has an indirect repercussion on the quality of cervical mucus.
