How Ovulation Tests Help in Getting Pregnant: 5 Easy Steps

Modern women have modern needs when it comes to growing their families. Here’s how you can make it easy.

Gone are the days when trying to grow your family is a hit or miss. Let these five tips help you out.

1. Understand the way your body works.

The first step in planning your family is knowing all the intricacies of your body. Women are generally advised to track their basal body temperatures (BBT) and the surge timings of their luteinizing hormones (LH) or progesterone levels. What many don’t know, however, is that tracking these data is just the tip of the iceberg. Even more, basing your plans on them can often be a hit or miss.

Contrary to the textbook definition of ovulation (which happens around 14 days after the start of the menstrual cycle), women have different cycles that don’t usually conform to the 28/14 count. This leaves a huge margin of error for those who religiously base their plans on these counts. To start, educate yourself on the specifics of your body first and build from there.

2. Find the right ovulation test kit.

The key to setting your plan in motion is finding the best ovulation test kit that caters to your needs. While traditional ovulation test kits are not exactly ineffective, the majority of them are not so accurate either.

Thankfully, there are digital ovulation smart kits now that help in tracking your ovulation and inform you about your exact peak fertile windows. Look for one that is designed for your lifestyle and habits. Always busy? Go for digital ones that you can easily strap to your devices.

3. Get the right timing.

Planning is only half of the journey. Actually understanding your fertile windows AND taking action is the other half of the hard work. BBT and progesterone levels may tell you when you have already ovulated so they’re not always foolproof signs in pinpointing your best days.

LH surges, on the other hand, can last from hours to days, with your best chances of conception happening 24 hours after the start of surge. Knowing these peaks is important in hitting your target, which brings us back to the importance of finding the best ovulation tracker. The best ones should be able to take the guesswork for you, help you understand your body by tracking your history, and tell you about your PEAK moments.

4. Be consistent.

Trying to conceive can be a frustrating journey, especially for couples who just don’t know if they’re on the right path in the first place.

As cliche as it sounds, however, being consistent plays a huge role in successfully getting pregnant. Once you’ve chosen a fertility tracker, try to stick to it for at least 3 to 6 months to give it time to understand your ovulation cycle.

5. Teamwork makes the dream work.

This should be a given already, but there are some couples who actually need reminding about this. Especially when it comes to tracking your ovulation, it would be better to keep your partner in the loop instead of just pulling him to participate during *sexy time*.

Give him updates so he feels more involved. It takes two to tango--or in this case, to a baby bump--after all.
