In brief: Fertility Pathway

Simple: track ovulation and timing of sex (bbt, opk); get healthy (no smoking or excess alcohol); see pcp for health update, check sperm count.
Complex: see fertility expert for testing (make diagnosis important), if 35 yo or more then consult after 6 months; choose most cost-effective treatment. Fertility expert: rei trained or large % of practice is infertility.

In brief: Multiple ways

If you want to limit yourself to non-medical ways, you can improve your health (ideal body weight, no smoking, healthy lifestyle) and make sure you have intercourse every 1-2 days surrounding the time of ovulation.
If time passes and you are not pregnant yet, the next best ways to increase your chances would be with medically assisted ways, such as ovulation medication, IUI or ivf.
