When conception is desired, correct timing of sexual relations is crucial. Couple must be directed about the exact time, just prior to or during ovulation. There are several signals sent out by a woman’s body that indicate that she is ready to conceive.
Timing of ovulation can be detected by various methods such as a rise in basal body temperature, cervical mucus changes and LH surge. Prediction methods are growing in popularity but these can be time consuming, expensive and the whole effort causes undesired anxiety and stress in the couple. Picking up these changes by various modalities is not reliable.
