Making love with your partner every day is totally ones choice and desire but for healthy life and conceiving it is important to have sex every other day.
4. Are there certain sex positions to get pregnant?
No, sex positions do not make any difference if you are trying to conceive. It is totally a myth. As far as there is good penetration there are no issues regarding position. The sperms should be deposited high up in the vagina near the cervix. This allows the sperms to easily swim to the uterus and Fallopian tubes and find the egg to fertilize. While making love with your partner one should try and opt for positions in which they are comfortable and deep penetration is possible. A passionate and comfortable love making means more orgasm and that’s what you want for the sperms to swim efficiently. Having orgasm is not necessary for getting pregnant but as it is a natural lubrication so it helps a sperm in swimming.
5. Are there any health concerns to conceive?
Eating a healthy and balanced diet is quite important as it keeps your body in a good condition. You should have good eating habits, do not smoke or drink, eat fruits and keep yourself hydrated. Healthy body weight according to your height and age is more preferable in conceiving. Women should avoid any strenuous workout. Normal routine exercise is good both for health and proper body weight.
For men, it is better if they eat a balanced diet and avoid high temperatures in their scrotal areas. For example, they should not keep laptops in their lap while working for hours as high temperature in the scrotal area can affect the quality of sperms.

Yes, sometimes there are some hormonal issue in both men and women which can cause a delay in conceiving too. It's better to consult a gynecologist after trying for 1 year or if there are problems related to menstrual cycle in females and ejaculation in men.
7. Exhausted after trying for long?
Some couples can conceive earlier whereas for some it takes a long time. In this scenario there is no need to panic and get stressed. From childhood we learnt a proverb “slow and steady wins the race”. This is what a couple really needs to do if they are trying to conceive and it’s taking long. Thus, taking stress disturbs hormones so it’s better to try and be calm and show little patience while trying for a baby. Try to look for early signs of pregnancy if you miss your period.
8. Stop taking birth control
Birth control methods should be avoided if you are planning for a pregnancy.
Unfortunately, one cannot exactly plan a pregnancy. Some advice can work for one couple but not for the other, so, if it’s taking too long to conceive then do consult a doctor. There are few cases of infertility too and such cases can be treated if known earlier in marriages. People have babies even after many years of marriage so keep trying and good luck.
