Planning for a Child
Many couples initiate the start of their pregnancy-planning phase by waving goodbye to the complexities and inconveniences of contraception. What many couples fail to realize though is that it is extremely rare for a pregnancy to occur straight away. Just coming off the pill is not enough - at least most of the times. Especially after a long time of hormonal contraception your natural fertility has to recover. This is often difficult to comprehend because almost all of us know couples who have experienced an unplanned pregnancy. The ideas and rules of natural family planning can be a great help.
If you want to have a baby, you should discontinue all forms of contraception as soon as possible and be aware that pregnancy can ensue immediately. Although it’s possible to conceive straight away, it often takes a while for a woman to start ovulating again after coming off the pill or other hormonal contraceptives. There are numerous measures you can adopt into your every day life which encourage pregnancy. The use of an ovulation predictor or fertility monitor can be a great support that only takes some small chances in your everday life. These simple changes can greatly effect the journey towards conceiving the child you’ve been longing for.
While some prefer to leave their offspring up to chance, others chose to plan pregnancies in fine detail. In both cases, child-planning aids can support you in your plans by calculating the days of your ovulation - meaning when you have the highest probability of conceiving.
