As one looks to getting pregnant, I think the very first thing is to evaluate your own fertility potential. Are you fertile? And that's an important question to ask. And that includes, is your period regular? How is your cervical mucus during your ovulation? Are you still the same amount of lubrication or mucus discharge, or are you dryer now? These are the kind of things that seem to be very minute changes but they're very important changes that your body is trying to tell you. So it's very important to kind of take a look at that. And sometimes you can do some basal temperature charting, charts throughout the whole cycle to take a look at how your temperature is working. There's so many of these things on the website, in the books that you can read on. But really to take a look at how fertile you are. So the mucus is very important, the period flow is very important, the regularity is very important, and also your lifestyle, stress level. If you're very stressed out, a lot of times that's going to suppress your female hormone level, so it's very important to really look at your lifestyle besides just how your body's doing.
