When You’re Ready and It Doesn’t Happen:

We are the masters of our body so we are our own source of fertility help. No one knows our bodies more than we do, and so when we are aware that there is a small period for getting pregnant monthly and if we can hear our biological clock ticking, we would be able to take full advantage of this short period.

It is important for women to understand that having regular intercourse doesn't equate to conceiving. This is one aspectwhere quality, not quantity, matters. Under the best conditions, there are only a few days a month when a woman is fertile and even then they only have around 25 percent probability of conceiving.

Timing is perhaps the most key factor in conceiving, but so many people do not get this right. One basic fertility help is dispelling the idea that ovulation starts on the 14th day of the monthly period as this is only accurate for women who regularly have a 28-day cycle.

There are a lot of women who have either shorter or longer cycles than 28 days and who do not ovulate on the 14th day. That is why this information is dependent on how well a woman knows her body. The menstrual cycle also changes every month and that it is very common to ovulate on the 13th or the 15th day after the monthly menstruation.

One of the best ways to have a baby is to find out approximately what time each month you do ovulate. The best way to do that is to get a basal body temperature and jot down your temperature each morning upon waking, before doing anything else. If you do this for some time you will see that your temperatures rise each month a few tenths of a degree and then stay up until your period comes. This shift in temperature indicates that you have indeed ovulated. Once you have a good idea when this occurs month to month, you will have a better chance of calculating when you might be ovulating.

Another fertility help tip has to do with the timing of intercourse, and the location and viability of the sperm after. Make sure that the sperm is inside the woman's body before the egg cell is released. Sperm cells are viable as long as 5 days but the egg cell only survives for half a day to a day. To be on the safe side, the couple would want to have intercourse days before ovulation and on the day of ovulation itself.
