Getting pregnant the first time: probabilities the first month and tips

When a couple is considering the possibility of having a baby, and this is the first time they have tried (that is, we are therefore facing the first month of search) It is quite common to have doubts directly or indirectly related to the chances of pregnancy.

Unlike what has traditionally been thought, the truth is that to achieve pregnancy is not enough to make love the best days to conceive (2 days before the day when ovulation occurs, and 2 days after it is has produced); factors such as the age of women and men also influence, and that both are physically well; that is, they do not have fertility problems and have an optimal reproductive health in this sense.

The odds of pregnancy the first month

Before discovering whether it is possible or not get pregnant at the first, we must pay attention to the chances of pregnancy in the first month.

If both women and men are between 20 and 25 years old and do not have any reproductive problems, the couple has between 20 to 25% chance of getting the pregnancy in the first month of trying. These probabilities increase with the passage of the months, but the certain thing is that every time the couple has sex, they have only a 20% chance of getting pregnant.

If the woman is between 30 to 35 years of age, the chances of pregnancy during the first month of relationships will be 15%. From the 35 year old odds is 10%, and to 40 years old is only 5% chance.

How to increase the chances of pregnancy in the first month?

For example, if your menstrual cycle is 28 days, the fertile days will be between days 12 to 16 of the cycle. When it comes to knowing when you will ovulate you can help several methods, such as taking the basal temperature before getting out of bed (if it stays regular and one day suddenly goes up means that just the previous day you ovulated, or that on that day you will ovulate), or opt for ovulation tests.
