Learning when and how to get pregnant

Happy coupleDo you know when to time sex? Do you really know when your body ovulates? Are your cycles always the standard 28 days long? Do you always ovulate on day 14? Are you (or were you) taking meds that was delaying or preventing ovulation? When do you have to stop the pill before TTC (trying to conceive)?

It’s time to learn more about it. One book to consider is Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health (Revised Edition) by Toni Weschler. As the book explains, by using simple fertility signs including peaks in morning body temperature and changes in cervical position and cervical mucus, it’s possible to determine when ovulation is taking place. Fertility awareness is therefore useful for not only couples who are trying to conceive, but for those who are aiming to avoid pregnancy without the use of chemical contraceptives.
