Understanding ovulation
Fertility chart

Some women get pregnant simply when the wind blows in the right direction, but luckily for others there are many tricks to help you predict your best chance of conceiving.

Tips & tricks to help you get pregnant

From online ovulation tools and apps to tracking body changes, discover five ways to detect ovulation and fast-track your plans to get pregnant.

Download online ovulation tools and apps

Getting pregnant in the digital age can be a breeze with tools such as WebMD's Ovulation Calculator and the E.P.T. Ovulation Calculator. WebMD's online tool charts your most fertile days based on your cycle, and the E.P.T. iPhone app tracks your menstrual cycle, pinpoints your most fertile days and reminds you the day before you're expected to ovulate.

Understand your cycle

"Timing is more important than many women realize," explains Dr. Yvonne Bohn* of The Mommy Docs. "Many women do not know when they are ovulating or how to predict when they are ovulating." According to The Mommy Docs, first count the number of days in your cycle starting with the first day of your period until the first day of your next period, and subtract 14 days to determine on which day your eggs will be released. "It is best to have intercourse one or two days before ovulation and one or two days after," says Dr. Bohn.

Shop for saliva ovulation tests

Ranging from digital detectors such as the OvaCue Fertility Monitor to traditional ovulation microscopes such as Fertile-Focus, gadgets that help you decode changes to your saliva can boost your chances of getting pregnant. The microscope is pretty low-tech, using an LED light, a lens and a drop of your saliva so you can spy a ferning pattern, while the digital monitor uses your saliva to detect, chart and record your daily levels. Overall, these reusable fertility helpers look for surges in estrogen that occur before you ovulate, so you can predict the best days to head to the boudoir and get to baby-making.

Use urine ovulation tests

Over-the-counter ovulation tests can be found next to the pregnancy tests at your local store to help you predict your most fertile days. Similar to traditional pregnancy tests, ovulation predictors such as First Response's ovulation test use your urine to detect hormones. You are most fertile and likely to conceive when your luteinizing hormone (LH) surges and you have intercourse 24-36 hours after the ovulation test gives you the green light, ranging from light and dark lines to digital happy faces.

Watch for body changes

Get knocked up the old-school way by tracking body changes commonly associated with the release of your egg. According to WebMD.com, half- to one-degree basal body temperature, clearer and more stretchy cervical mucus, tender breasts, light spotting and abdominal bloating are all signals that you and your partner should drop everything and hit the sheets.

Whether you're having trouble conceiving or are just using these five ways to detect ovulation to help you get to the finish line quicker, it's important to see your OB/GYN before you get started baby-making. "Many medical issues such as undiagnosed diabetes can increase the risk of miscarriage and birth defects," warns Dr. Bohn. "Knowing ahead of time, your doctor can make sure that your blood sugars are in very tight control at least three months before conception... and that you're at the ideal body weight before conceiving."

You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
