    When to Try for A Baby

    Is there a magic time to try if you want to have a baby? WebMD guest expert Hyacinth Nicole Browne, MD, says every woman is different. Your "fertile window" is usually two to six days before you ovulate, but it all depends on your body, she says.

    There are ways you can track your body's signals so you can increase your chances of getting pregnant. You might try taking your temperature every day or using an ovulation predictor kit. They're not guaranteed to help, but they might!

    You may want to talk to a fertility specialist if you don't get pregnant after a year (or six months if you're over 35.)

    Are you trying to have a baby? What do you do to keep track of your body's cycles and when you're ovulating?
