Trying to conceive

Am new here...me and my husband are trying to start our family, for last few months I have started tracking my dates..and tracking when I start ovulating...  Many women use ovulation predictor kits, which identify the date of ovulation 12 to 24 hours in advance by looking at levels of luteinizing hormone, or LH, the last of the hormones to hit its peak before ovulation. Is any one using predictor kit ???  Is there any other way I can check when I am ovulating?

Hello.  First thing to know is that it takes the average healthy couple a year to get pregnant.  :>)  It often doesn't happen over night.  Tracking your cycle helps.  You figure out cycle day one, easy enough as that is the first day of your period.  Then count.  On days 14 to 15, that is when most women ovulate.  You can get pregnant up to a week before ovulation and ovulation lasts 24 to 48 hours.  So, if you begin having sex on cycle day 10 EVERY OTHER day for the next 10 days, you likely catch the egg.  That's what my doctor recommends.  I tried the sticks you pee on to predict ovulation and that was hard for me.  I didn't have much luck for that.  But the monitoring system where you pee on a stick and put it into a reader device for the majority of the month DID work well.  

Let me know how it is going
