  • You have to know about when you are ovulating or it won't help. And are you ovulating. If you use it and aren't ovulating, you just wasted money or if you use it to far ahead.

  • It's a good idea if you have lubrication problems and you're TTC. It won't make you pregnant, but it can make the process a lot more comfortable. I highly recommend it.

  • You may want to read up on Natural Family Planning about recording basal body temp, cervical position, and cervical position. If you don't have regular cycles, it will be cheaper than buying the test kits. All you need for this is a basal thermometer (walmart/target/cvs). you can get the charts on-line.

    If you want a book about it Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler is a good read. easy to understand and you pretty much understand what to do in the first few chapters.

  • If you have fairly regular cycles and you're under 35 the best thing you can do is learn about your cycle and figure out when you are ovulating. The book Taking Charge of Your Fertility will point you in the right direction. I think living a healthy lifestyle will probably help more than the things you can buy over the counter. Getting your body ready to carry a baby will also give your baby the best possible start. If you aren't already, consider starting a prenatal vitamin.


    If you're older or have irregular periods or other problems a visit to your OB/GYN is in order.

  • I would highly recommend the Taking Charge of your Fertility book and software. I bought the software for my comptuer and knew I was pregnant before I even took a test. It teaches you about cervical mucas, basil body temp, body changes and etc. It is great.
