But there are some major reasons why couples not able to achieve pregnancy.

    Top 5 Reason why you are not getting pregnant

    1. Age

    Simple and one of the most important effective reason why you are not getting pregnant as if you are a couples under the age of 30s then there are chances that you will not have any pregnancy related issue but still you can have infertility issue under the age of 30s because if you do not maintain your healthy routine and diet then you may face early age infertility issue. But it is mostly found the couples with the age of 30s to 40s or plus have this issue more. Because in women’s case as the age grows the effects of the egg which directly affect pregnancy and if you see the men’s perspective semen quality is effected with aging that’s why couples not able to get pregnant and age plays a big part in it. Still with the help of IVF treatment and specialist gynaecologist couples can achieve pregnancy.

    2. Schedule our Intercourse Time

    Well if you are a couple and want to achieve pregnancy naturally then there is the only way is to do regular intercourse as if you are in the age of twenties or early thirties. Then you should have intercourse every day also try to start the time process before ovulation. Couples can start intercourse 4 or 5 days before ovulation which likes to increase your chances of pregnancy. Many couples do intercourse but not regularly as if you want to start a family then you have to do regular intercourse because in some cases it takes time to get pregnant as it is been found the couples tried 6-8 months of regular intercourse and then they achieved pregnancy. You cannot clearly say that you are affected with infertility until you have done 1 year of intercourse and still you are not achieving pregnancy only then you can visit gynaecologist for checkups.

    3. Stressed

    You are not ovulating this happens because of many reasons but the main reason is hormonal imbalance many have a lack of proper mix of hormones to create quality eggs. And if some case hormonal imbalance is genetic like if your mother or grandmother has faced some kind of miscarriages or struggle in pregnancy then there are chances that you will face these things too. But the biggest reason has found for hormonal imbalance and not ovulating is stress. When a couple does not get proper sleep or live a very stressful life then you might face this issue and you will start producing very fewer sex hormones like progesterone and estrogen. So this is very important for you to know how to low the stress levels. You don’t need to change your life at 360, but to start small do yoga for 15min to 30min try to eat healthy make your daily routine healthy, spend the time you’re your parents and friends. This will help you light up your mood and low the stress levels.
