A large part of trying to conceive is learning how to track your cycles so that you know when you’re most fertile and can maximise your chance of falling pregnant.
The most important time to try and conceive is right before ovulation, so if you know when you normally ovulate, that will increase your chances hugely. Dr Sean Burnet and his colleague Dr Karen Sheng have held free information evenings at North Sydney’s Mater hospitals for women who are trying to conceive. They’ve also helped patients who spent 12 months or more trying to conceive.
If you aren’t pregnant after 12 months of regular intercourse, then it can help to speak to your doctor. Before enquiring about infertility and IVF, you might want to ask about tracking your fertility.
