Fertility and Ovulation Myths that everyone should know

When it comes to fertility and ovulation, there are a lot of old-wives tales and myths out there. If you believe everything you hear about conception, it could possibly make it harder for you to get pregnant. Knowing fact from myth can help you a great deal. Here are some fertility and ovulation myths that everyone who is trying to get pregnant should know:

  1. Myth: If you’re not pregnant after a few months, there must be a problem

Fact: Getting pregnant is rarely easy and it can take a few times and up to a year to conceive. Years of using birth control can also put you at a disadvantage if you want to conceive early. Only a few couples get pregnant in the first month they try. It is completely normal to take up to six months (one year for some couples) to get pregnant. A study found that after three months of trying, 68 percent of couples were pregnant, and 92 percent conceived within a year. If you are 35 or older, or haven’t been able to conceive after a year of trying, see your doctor.

  1. Myth: Your ovaries take turns in ovulating eggs

Fact: Your body doesn’t systematically “schedule” ovulation to alternate ovaries from month to month. It is common for women to tend to ovulate more often from one side than the other. Depending on various factors, it may be your left ovary or right. This is also why you may notice you get ovulation pain on side more often than the other. Which ovary releases the egg has more to do with which one has a follicle that reaches the final stage of maturity.

  1. Myth: You can’t get Pregnant by having sex during your period

Fact: Your ability to get pregnant is dependent on when you ovulate, and not associated with menstruation. Some women believe that if they are still on their period, they aren’t in the fertile window. But if your cycle is short and you ovulate on day 7 or 8, you can conceive from sex on your period. Another misconception people have is that menstruation will “wash out” any sperm along with period blood, but even that’s not true. Your period won’t stop sperm from swimming up to your reproductive system.

  1. Myth: If you’re ovulating, you won’t have trouble getting Pregnant

Fact: Ovulation is essential to getting pregnant. However, it takes more than just an egg to conceive. The pathway to the egg must be clear. If the fallopian tubes are blocked, pregnancy can’t occur. Getting pregnant isn’t only about the woman’s fertility. It is important to know that infertility doesn’t always have obvious symptoms. Some fertility problems (in both men and women) are not detectable without fertility testing. It’s not possible to tell without lab testing if a man’s ejaculate has enough sperm cells to be fertile. Therefore, ovulation is only a small part of the fertility process.
