Maintaining awareness of a woman's ovulation cycle and having sex at the right time are the best ways to get pregnant faster, according to BootsWebMD. Most people under the age of 35 who are in good health and have unprotected sex regularly should get pregnant in less than a year.

Having sex at least three times a week makes pregnancy more possible. Sperm survives inside a woman's body for up to five days, explains BootsWebMD. In fact, waiting to have sex every other day gives the sperm more time to build up, so each ejaculation produces more potential for fertilization.

In each cycle, pregnancy is only possible on six days, or the five days preceding ovulation and the day itself, notes BootsWebMD. This requires becoming familiar with the cycle, which is simple for women on a 28-day cycle, but for those who are on a different schedule, keeping a diary helps to identify the best days for sex. Ovulation takes place 14 days before the period begins, and after ovulation, the egg is only available for fertilization for one day. Starting to have sex six days before ovulation is recommended for pregnancy. It is important to pay attention but also to relax through the process, as stress causes performance issues for men and women.
