While there is no silver bullet to getting pregnant right away, there are some things you can do to help your chances. First, stop taking birth control early – long before you intend to get pregnant. Hormones need time to settle back to normal and make the body ready for conception. You may also want to stop taking certain prescription medications before pregnancy. Second, focus on optimizing your body’s overall health, as many systems in the body don’t function normally when the balance is out of whack. That includes eating right, getting proper rest and exercise, maintaining a healthy weight and proactively dealing with stress.
