Pregnancy Home > Ovulation Information

Sometimes, getting pregnant isn't as easy as you might think, and many couples need some help in this endeavor. Usually, the easiest place to start is by tracking your menstrual cycle, with the goal of being able to predict when you ovulate so that you know when you are most fertile and perhaps most likely to conceive. There are several different ways to do this, some more expensive and labor-intensive than others.
