Tips when you are trying to get pregnant

When you are trying to get pregnant, it can be difficult to know what advice to take. You may hear many different opinions and not all of them may be true.

Our videos, and factsheets are based on evidence you can trust. However, this information is not the same as professional medical advice. If you are worried, or want more information, see your doctor.

Five tips based on the evidence:

2. Watch your ovulation cycle - some times in the month are better to try to get pregnant

3. Keep a healthy weight - it increases your chances of getting pregnant

4. Take supplements - make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need
