Understand Your Cycle

1. Chart your Cycle

Ovulation usually occurs between day 11 and day 21 of your cycle.

2. Cervical mucus

You can also chart your cervical mucus as a way to determine ovulation. You want to look for the stage in which your cervical mucus is wetter and has a egg white like consistency, this is the best time to conceive.

3. Basal Body Temperature (BBT)

This is the lowest temperature attained by the body when the body is at rest. You can track your BBT by taking your temperature in the morning, preferably at the same time every morning and creating a chart. In women, ovulation causes the temperature to increase one half to one point Fahrenheit.

4. Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPKs)

Two to three days before ovulation is your most fertile time.

Maintain Healthy Life Style

Maintaining a healthy weight and eating a healthy diet can help eliminate hormonal imbalances that can cause irregular cycles, ovulation as well as nutritional issues. When wanting to get pregnant naturally, it's more than just making sure you are at a healthy weight. You will need to carefully watch your food intake and make sure you are eating organic or as close to organic foods as possible. Because the food industry have grown, more and more unnatural ingredients have been added to "healthy" foods. If a woman's diet is not good, the body will lack the proper nutrients it needs to facilitate ovulation and a successful pregnancy.

Have at least 30 minutes a day exercise. It's not about perfection here, it's just taking little steps to make a healthier body. Moderate exercise also helps promote healthy circulation throughout your body.

Avoid stressful work if you cant live without a job. It will be beneficial to reduce your duties at work if possible. Work related stress can take it's toll on the body and impend you from getting pregnant.

Avoid alcohol and smoking to make the uterus conducive to embryo implantation.

Avoid Foods that can Prevent Pregnancy

1. Soybeans and soy foods

The plant form of estrogen (phytoestrogens) in soybeans won't help when you're trying to get pregnant - and it's especially important to avoid high soy consumption if you're coping with infertility.

2. Lunch meats

The nitrates and nitrites in frankfurters, bologna, salami, and lunch meats make them foods that aren't good to eat if you want to get pregnant or are coping with infertility.

3. Soda, high-sugar fruit drinks, and candy

Excessive sugar can lead to low blood sugar, which can upset levels of reproductive hormones. You want your hormones to be as balanced and stable as possible.

4. Coffee, tea, chocolate, cola

Excessive caffeine can not only reduce your chances of getting pregnant, it can increase the risk of miscarriage. When you're trying to get pregnant, drink tea in moderation - and stick to decaffeinated tea!

5. Painkillers/stimulants/diet pills and caffeine

Extra Strength Excedrin, Maximum-Strength Midol, Vanquish, Anacin, and Amaphen are pain relievers that may contain significant amounts of caffeine. No-Doz is a stimulant that has caffeine, and many diet pills also contain caffeine
