Trying to Conceive is a Natural Imperative
Article by Green
Trying to conceive is perhaps the most natural imperative of man. We are drawn to become fruitful and multiply, but conception can sometimes be difficult. When a couple has trouble conceiving there can be a host of reasons. When trying to conceive, it is best for a woman to know when she is most fertile. There are a number of ways to keep track of your most fertile periods when trying to conceive.
One of the ways of trying to conceive is through use of the basal temperature method. This method is very simple and works based upon basal temperature, which is the temperature of your body at rest immediately upon waking each morning. It is important to note that basal temperature can vary woman to woman. So, when trying to conceive, it is important that you become familiar with your particular basal temperature.
The process is based upon the fact that your basal temperature will rise during ovulation. Detection of this rise can be a bit tricky since 96 to 98 oral degrees is average before ovulation. A rise of from 97 to 99 degrees can indicate that you are ovulating and it is a good time for trying to conceive. To keep an even more accurate record of your basal temperature, you can buy a basal thermometer at almost any pharmacy. A rise of only 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit to 0.8 degrees on the basal thermometer can indicate that it is a good time for trying to conceive.
Another method of trying to conceive is the calendar method. Through this process a woman must first chart her menstrual cycle before trying to conceive. This is done by marking the first and last days of your period each month, so you can determine the duration of your cycle. In order to discover your most fertile day, you will need to determine your menstrual duration during the shortest cycle. Subtract 18 from that number and count forward that many days and you have your next most fertile day. To determine the last day that you’re fertile, subtract the number 11 from your longest cycle. Trying to conceive during these days is more likely to produce positive results than attempts on other days.
Next, there is the cervical mucus method of trying to conceive. This involves paying close attention to the cervical mucus that develops during ovulation. This mucus is present when eggs begin maturing. It will appear at the vaginal opening as a white or yellow, cloudy and sticky fluid, initially. As the best chances for fertility arise, the mucus will take on a clear, wet and slippery appearance. When the cervical mucus looks like this it is a good time for trying to conceive. Around four days after this wet period, the consistency and color of the mucus will change again and your chances of conception are reduced.
Not surprisingly, many women have found that the best method for trying to conceive is to develop your own process, combining all three of these methods.

Fertility Charting Essentials: Checking your primary fertility signs takes just a few minutes each day. The essential signs to check are: * your cervical fluid observations * your waking temperature * the time you took your temperature * when you have intercourse * when you have menstrual bleeding The most important, or primary, fertility signs are your basal body temperature (BBT) and your cervical fluid. Your basal body temperature can be measured when you wake up in the morning using an inexpensive special thermometer that you can buy at your drugstore. You can easily observe your cervical fluid when you go to the bathroom. Your basal body temperature rises after ovulation due to increased progesterone in your bloodstream. Your cervical fluid is the fluid that is produced by your cervix as ovulation is approaching. You can see and feel it in or outside your vagina. Cervical fluid, which is sometimes called cervical mucous (CM), changes throughout your cycle depending on your fertility status. It becomes watery and stretchy, like raw egg white when you are most fertile just before ovulation. Observing and recording these fertility signs, you can see when you are fertile on a graph. The information can be analyzed and interpreted and the feedback lets you see when you are approaching ovulation, when you have already ovulated, when you should expect your period or a positive pregnancy test, along with other insights that will help you get pregnant and learn about your …
