Don't panic, your fertility journey doesn't have to be an express service straight to IVF. Many couples, understandably, want to know what they can do to improve their chance of conceiving naturally (their natural fertility) before trying fertility treatment - they want to read some conception tips and find a straightforward path to achieving their goals.
Some pregnancy tips can be just that - straightforward. Making some simple lifestyle changes is one of the first steps couples should take when trying to conceive. By improving your natural fertility you not only increase your chances of success naturally, but you also increase your chances of success with IVF if it's still required.
Another step many couples take is to work out the best days to conceive based on when the woman is ovulating. But of course if you are trying to work it out yourself, this may not be completely accurate or in fact you may not be ovulating at all.
It’s a sad fact of life that some couples will need fertility treatment (such as IVF) no matter what lifestyle changes they make. A couple in their 20s without any infertility issues, has a 20 per cent chance of getting pregnant naturally each month. Add just one mild infertility factor into the mix (one between the two of you) and that falls to a five per cent chance each month. Make it two mild infertility factors (maybe one each), and your chance of conceiving naturally each month is only one per cent - that means it would take seven years to conceive naturally. And let’s face it, no-one has that much time to lose.
Infertility is a medical condition and we’re not suggesting that the information and tips you’ll find in this section will cure you if you have an infertility factor but they are good advice for improving your chances, whatever path your fertility journey takes.
We’re often asked, when’s the right time to seek help?
