If you’re ready to have a baby, but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place.

So, keep reading for some easy ways to improve your fertility as a woman.
Keep track of your basal body temperature
Your basal body temperature indicates whether you’re ovulating or not. This is important to determine and understand, especially if you’re having a hard time conceiving. Taking your temperature at the same time every day will help you understand when you’re ovulating, or if you have irregular ovulation which should be looked at by a doctor.
Getting to know your body can truly help you understand when you’re most fertile. The mucus from your cervix changes throughout your cycle, and the way it changes indicates what is going on. When your mucus looks and feels like egg whites (stretchy, sticky, and clear) then you’re the most fertile. Also, did you know that that more mucus you have, the better chance you have of getting pregnant? Understanding your mucus and tailoring your sexual schedule may help you increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Especially when it comes to your weight, staying healthy can help you boost your fertility. Being underweight or overweight can impact your cycle, thus making it harder for you to conceive. If your BMI (body mass index) is out of healthy range, consider seeing a doctor to help you get on track.
Eat for Fertility
Your eggs are only as healthy as you are. Eating healthy, well balanced non-processed food improves your fertility. Studies have shown that high protein low carb diets improve fertility.
Staying hydrated is not only good for you, it’s especially good for your fertility.
