Track your cervical mucus

You can track your fertility by keeping your cervical mucus in check and knowing when it is the right time to have intercourse in order to conceive. In order to track your cervical mucus, you should know what to look for because it is easy to miss. During your course of menstrual cycle, there will be some changes in the cervical mucus, which you can track. The cervical mucus will undergo changes in color, volume, and consistency throughout the cycle. The volume is the highest during ovulation. You will be able to distinguish it because its appearance is exactly like uncooked egg white. The texture is just like an egg white too. This cervical mucus is referred to as egg white cervical mucus and its presence is the indication that the time is right for sex in order to have a baby. You can track your cervical mucus everyday and soon you will be able to know where you are in your menstrual cycle. You can chart the changes and find out when you are ovulating and for how many days. From all this information it will be easy for you to figure out when you can conceive successfully.

Track your basal body temperature

To be absolutely sure you can combine the tracking of your cervical mucus with your basal body temperature. The temperature of your body when you wake up in the morning is referred to as the basal body temperature. You can buy a basal thermometer and check your BBT every morning. Make sure you do it right and do it immediately after waking up every day so that the readings are correct. Doing it after brushing your teeth or having coffee will give you wrong results. Through this thermometer, you will be able to note a slight increase in your BBT too. BBT increases when you are ovulating and will stay the same until your next period. Thus, when you see an increase, know that it is a good time for sex.

Tracking fertility using fertility tests

If you don’t fancy tracking your cervical mucus and your BBT, you can rely on fertility tests to find out when you are most fertile i.e. when you are ovulating. They work by tracking the levels of LH or luteinizing hormone. The levels of this hormone will increase 24 hours prior to ovulation and you can thus track ovulation and know when to have sex in order to conceive a baby.
