7. Exercise and Maintain a Healthy Body Weight

The better your overall health is, the better your fertility will be. Exercise regularly at a moderate pace, and maintain a weight appropriate for your height and body structure. Also, by starting physical activity before you are pregnant, it will be easier to maintain an exercise routine into your pregnancy and beyond. And don’t forget about your partner — physical activity can improve his fertility, too, so make moderate exercise a team event.

The surest path to pregnancy is understanding your cycle, correctly predicting your fertile window, and timing sex appropriately. If it takes longer than you’d expected, don’t despair. For many couples, getting pregnant takes planning and persistence, but it’s worth it in the end.
