Regular sex is the best way to get pregnant naturally.

- Don`t rely only on fertility charting
It is good to use fertility charting to track your cycle, but it is not enough. It is possible to see ovulation on a bbt chart after you have ovulated.
- Don`t rely on the calendar method
It is said that the best day to have sex and get pregnant is aroud the 14th day of your cycle. This is called the calendar method and is applied in case you ovulate mid-cycle and have a 28-day cycle.

- See a doctor
Ensure you are healthy before trying to get pregnant, so see your doctor. The chances of getting preganant are diminished by untreated infections, poor health, or sexually transmitted diseases. A doctor can also recommend you prenatal vitamins.

Fertility is very much affected by smoking, alcohol and drugs, so don`t wait until you are pregnant to quit these bad habits.
