  • first you need to know what your ovulation cycle is. I would recommend a book for you...Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It will tell you how to understand your body without needing to buy kits and can even explain how you will know you are preggo before any EPT will.

  • there is an ovulation calculator on and at and I saw at the drugstore they have some lubricant that is supposed to help with conceiving, I never heard about it before but it wouldn't hurt to try it I can't remember the name of it but I saw it at CVS it was in the aisle where the cholesterol tests and other otc tests are it wasn't in the feminine aisle but it might be there too, also I saw they have ovulation tests at Big Lots so you can buy a lot there for less money they were name brands

  • "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" is THE SINGLE best investment you can make. I wasted a lot of money on ovulation kits and a lot of time on online sites. I bought the book...pregnant next cycle. (And ya know what? When I conceived, the OPK said I wasn't fertile! So much for that.)
