In a world of gizmos and gadgets, there is still nothing as powerful as knowledge.

Even if you buy all the fancy gadgets - buy this book because it will help enhance everything else.

Many of the commonly used lubricants are not fertility friendly. This means that your lube might be keeping you from getting pregnant, or at least making it more difficult. Pre-Seen is designed to provide you with not only excellent lubrication, but it is sperm friendly, meaning that it will not harm the sperm during intercourse. It is designed to mimic your body's own lubrication.

 Pregnitude is a reproductive support dietary supplement that provides supplemental support to the inositol your body naturally produces and Folic acid a valuable vitamin for women seeking to become pregnant.

Sure, you could get a regular basal thermometer, but isn't it more fun to say iBasal? The basal body temperature can give you clues to your cycle, including help predict ovulation and pregnancy. The nice part of the iBasal is that it will help you interpret the data as well as store a graph of your last ten readings. There is also a reminder alarm so you don't forget to test. And it measures your temperature in 1/100ths.

This is a low-tech method of detecting ovulation using saliva or vaginal secretions. It looks like a lipstick tube but when you open it up it's really a 60X microscope. You use it to look at the saliva under the microscope (lighted) to check for specific patterns called ferning, which would indicate ovulation is approaching. You can test quickly and discreetly. One thing I like is that you can check every few hours if you want to do so. This product lasts for a long time. Mine lasted my entire childbearing span. 

When you are trying to use the ovulation prediction test strips, it can be really expensive. But much of what you're paying for is packaging. These are no-frills tests that offer a combination of the ovulation tests as well as a pregnancy test. The ovulation test strips are designed to find the LH surge, indicating ovulation. This can help you get pregnant. The pregnancy test is to be used at the end of your cycle. It can detect 25 mIU/ml of hCG within 3-5 minutes and is 99.8% accurate. The nice thing about buying in bulk is that, particularly if you have longer cycles, you can test as many days as you feel the need to test, without worrying about breaking the bank.

If you are planning to have a baby and you've been trying and not having much luck and you're not ready or don't want to seek professional help, these tests might help. The female version tests urine on day three of your cycle, measuring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). The male test measure sperm concentration in semen.

Are you worried that your male partner has an issue with his sperm count or quality? This is an at home test to help determine the concentration of sperm in his semen. It will measure positive or negative, using 20 million sperm per millimeter of semen as the cutoff. It does not tell you about the health of that sperm, therefore is not a perfect replacement for an office test. Low sperm count is one of the main causes of infertility. More about semen analysis.

There might be a reason that insemination is useful for you in getting pregnant. This can be used for people who are using donor sperm or for those who have been told they may have a fertility issue that might be helped with insemination. Stork offers a video for how their product works. The company refers to it as a "condom-like in collection and tampon-like in delivery" system. It is single use only, so it is not to be used for multiple cycles. It is drug and Latex-free.

If you're looking for a high-tech fertility aid, there are several fertility monitors out there. The OvaCue is one that does not require the additional purchase of test strips or cartridges. The fertility monitor comes with everything you need, including a USB cable. It helps you not only track your menstrual cycles but predict your ovulation 5-7 days prior as it learns your cycles.

The Clearblue Fertility Monitor has been around for a long while, which is one of the reasons that you will see a lot of practitioners recommending it to their patients. It is looking for an LH surge in a non-invasive way (urine). It will tell you when to test and when to not test. It will even let you know when you should think about a pregnancy test. It provides the results as low, high, and peak fertility to let you decide when to have sex. You do need to purchase replacement test strips.

This is one of the more unusual devices, but it's receiving a good bit of attention. It's a wearable temperature monitor that is worn near the armpit overnight. It continually checks your temperature while you sleep to provide a more accurate basal body temperature. The app then interprets the data and helps you figure out when to time sex for conception.
