Some women decide they want to have a baby and miraculously, about nine months down the road, they do. For others, the process isn't quite that simple. On the surface the equation seems to only require a man, a woman and a little alone time, but the truth is there is more to getting pregnant than a romantic evening of wining, dining and romance.
While it is a harsh reality that not every woman will be able to physically procreate, there are some tips and tricks others can use to make the time between desiring to have a baby and actually having one go a little more smoothly. The more information a couple is armed with, the better. The fact is it's not always easy to conceive.
The first thing to keep in mind is that pregnancy is a percentage game, so to say. Getting pregnant is like hitting the lottery. Although it might seem like an easy thing to do, the fact is the chances of managing to get pregnant in any single cycle are fairly slim. The best-case scenario sets the odds at about 20 percent, and that's when fertility time is isolated and taken advantage of.
Though it seems rather simple to create a baby, there are very complex processes going on inside a woman's body and a man's. When everything aligns correctly, the chances for conception increase. When things aren't quite as they should be or the timing is off slightly, the chances decrease. Where one woman might get pregnant on the first attempt, another might have to endure numerous cycles and monthly disappointment to accomplish the goal. The circumstances for both the man and the woman have to be right for a pregnancy to occur.
