Predict Ovulation

There are a number of methods for helping you to predict your most fertile time. These methods are based on the hormonal changes that occur over the life of your Menstrual Cycle.

Some methods require more consistency than others, some are better at predicting ovulation, and some better at confirming it. Choose the one or combination that is right for you.

Since you will be looking for patterns when using these methods, it is recommended that you start to track these body changes for a few months before trying to conceive in order to get used to your own individual cycle.
