Seven Fertility Myths That Could be Keeping you From Getting Pregnant - Page 2

Myth Number Six: You should have sex as many times as you can on the day you think you are ovulating.

Well this won’t really hurt anything but even if you have sex all day long on the day you think you are ovulating you may not get pregnant. Each cycle you have about a 20-30% chance of getting pregnant. One of the biggest mistakes couples make is trying to cram all their love making into the one day they think is best to try to conceive. Well, what if this is not the right day? Some women have a difficult time predicting ovulation so one of the best things you can do is to have sex regularly three to four times a week.

Myth Number Seven: Generally women are the ones that have fertility problems. Men rarely have problems.

For some reason women tend to think that only men that abuse drugs or are impotent have fertility problems. This is not true. Infertility is a problem that affects both men and women equally, with about 40% of infertility being linked to male factors, 40% to female, and 20% to a combination of male and female factors.
