Let’s start with the basics; to become pregnant the male partner’s sperm must fertilize the female’s egg.  The woman’s egg is usually released from the ovary on around the 14th day of the menstrual cycle. A woman's monthly cycle is measured from the first day of her menstrual period until the first day of her next period. The release of the egg is called ovulation, which is the fertile time of the cycle. Having intercourse during this time should result in a pregnancy.  Since the exact time of ovulation is hard to predict without a fertility monitor, your chances of becoming pregnant are higher if you start having sex 3 days before your predicted day of ovulation and continue for 3 days after.  There are no over the counter medications or vitamins that will increase fertility. There are prescription medications that can help, but these are usually not recommended unless you have been trying to get pregnant for several months or longer.
