1. Make love! This might sound obvious but it is worthy of note that the more sex you’re having, the higher your chances of getting pregnant — but only to a point. Study has shown that; On average, about half of the couples trying to get pregnant will do so within six months, and that if you have sex less than once a week, your odds drop from 50 percent to 18 percent; if you have sex three times a week, your chances increase to about 80 percent. However, if you’re having a ton of sex — say, several times a day — your partner’s sperm count could be negatively affected, so its best to have his sperm count in mind whiles choosing number of times you make love.
