Conception stories to support you

How long will it take?

It can take some couples a long time to conceive, while others may get pregnant the first or second try. Many factors play a role in conception, and there is no one right way to do it. However, there are a few things that may improve your chances of conceiving:

  • Have intercourse frequently (every two to three days) throughout your cycle. This ensures that sperm is always present when ovulation occurs.
  • Use positions that allow deep penetration, such as the missionary position. This increases the chances that sperm will reach the egg.
  • Avoid using lubricants, as they can decrease sperm motility.
  • Stay relaxed. Stress can interfere with ovulation and make it difficult to conceive.

If you have been trying to conceive for six months or longer without success, you may want to consult a fertility specialist. They will be able to help you determine if there are any underlying medical conditions that are preventing you from conceiving.

How hard it can be?

The psychological consequences of infertility are often underestimated. Infertility can be a very difficult experience, both physically and emotionally. It can cause feelings of isolation, guilt, anger, and sadness. Some couples may find it hard to cope with the stress of infertility and may experience depression or anxiety.

It is important to remember that you are not alone. There are many support groups and resources available for people who are struggling with infertility. If you are feeling overwhelmed or depressed, please seek professional help.

To support your and your partner`s mental health, here are a few tips:

  • Talk to each other about how you are feeling. Being open and honest is key to maintaining a healthy relationship.
  • Seek counseling. A therapist can help you process the emotions you are experiencing and give you coping strategies.
  • Connect with other couples who are also struggling with infertility. Talking to others who understand what you are going through can be very helpful.
  • Go to fertility support groups. These groups offer a lot of emotional support, as well as practical advice on how to cope with infertility.
  • Read books or articles about infertility. This can help you understand what you are going through and learn about the different treatments available.
  • Take care of yourself both physically and emotionally. Get plenty of rest, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly. Also, be sure to schedule time for activities that you enjoy and that make you feel good.

Conception stories from other women

You are not alone in your journey, there are many other women who have been through it. Here are some stories from women who were able to conceive after struggling with infertility.

Story # 1

I was 25 when I got married, and like most women, I assumed that getting pregnant would be easy. But it didn't happen right away, and after six months of trying, I started to get worried. I went to my gynecologist and she did some tests and said that everything was normal. She told me to relax and just keep trying.

I did ovulation tests and timed my intercourse, but still, nothing happened. After a year of trying, I saw a fertility specialist. He did more tests and found out that I had a condition called endometriosis. He recommended surgery to remove the endometriosis tissue and also put me on medication to stimulate ovulation.

I underwent surgery and then started taking the medication. A few months later, I was finally able to conceive. I had my first pregnancy test and it was positive! I was so happy and relieved. Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage a few weeks later. But I was determined to keep trying.

I went back on the medication and finally, after two years of struggling with infertility, I had my baby girl. She is now 3 years old and is the light of my life.

Story # 2

My husband and I always wanted to have kids, but we didn't start trying until I was 32. We got pregnant right away, but sadly I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. We were devastated.

The doctor told us that sometimes this happens and we just needed to try again. So we did, but I didn't get pregnant. We tried for a few more months, but still, nothing happened.

I started to think that maybe I was infertile. I went to see a fertility specialist and he did some tests. He told me that my eggs were of poor quality and that my chances of conceiving were very low. He recommended IVF.

We decided to give it a try, and it worked! I got pregnant on the first try. I couldn't believe it. We now have a beautiful baby boy who is 6 months old.

Story # 3

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for about a year with no luck. We saw a fertility specialist and he did some tests and found out that my husband had a low sperm count.

The doctor recommended IVF with ICSI. We did one round of IVF and it didn't work. We were so disappointed. But we decided to try again. We did another round of IVF and this time it worked! I got pregnant on the first try and we now have a beautiful baby girl.
