What to Do When You're Ready to Conceive
Over the last two weeks, we've covered the lifestyle changes you might want to consider making in the months leading up to trying to conceive. This week, we're discussing what to do when you’re ready to become pregnant.
For Everyone
✅ Stop using contraception

✅ Have regular intercourse

✅ Inseminate during your fertile window

✅ Be mindful of your mental health
For Women and the Birthing Parent 
(Also Relevant for Partners)

Understand your menstrual cycle
Understanding the length of your menstrual cycle and the duration of your period can help you identify if your periods are regular or irregular and allow you to calculate your fertile window, if you choose to do so in future. Read more about the fertile window in our Preconception Guide.

Visit your GP if you have an irregular cycle
Your GP will be able to advise you and may suggest further tests to determine the cause. In the UK, a cycle is considered irregular if it is shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days.

Consider tracking ovulation
If you've been trying for a while (we recommend 3 months or more) and haven't yet conceived you may wish to consider tracking your ovulation to understand your most fertile days. It's important to note that some people find ovulation tracking stressful so don't put pressure on yourself if that is the case.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend and we'll see you next Friday!
