Trying to get pregnant, but nothing's happen. What can I do to increase my chances?

Watch cycles: If you have normal 28 day cycles, then you should ovulate on cycle day 14, when cycle day 1 is the first day of your period.

Your estrogen level is very high, and it makes your cervical mucus thin, allowing sperm to get though to fertilize the egg. You may notice an egg-white discharge, which is a good sign. ...Read more

Check ovulation: One thing you can do is to buy an ovulation prediction test at the pharmacy each month. You can get them over the counter without a prescription. You start testing on day 12 and keep testing until it turns positive. When it is positive, you will ovulate in 12 - 48 hours. The best time to have intercourse is the night the test is positive and the next night. Best wishes! ...Read more
