The series of events that occur during your menstrual cycle need to be carefully orchestrated if a pregnancy is to occur. Conception is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle- just one piece missing and the puzzle can’t be completed.
As soon as your period ends, a hormone called Follicle Stimulating Hormone ( FSH) is secreted into your bloodstream by the pituitary gland, a small bean-sized gland that lies just behind your eyes in your brain. This hormone acts in your ovaries, which sit at the end of your fallopian tubes and contain many thousands of eggs. You were born with about three million eggs, but by puberty these will have degenerate to about 400,000. All of these eggs are exposed to FSH, and it is unclear why only a few are recruited to start developing.
The lining of the uterus is perfectly primed for a life to begin. The granules of mucus will provide nutrients for a newly fertilized egg.

Checklist
1. An ovulation predictor kit will tell me exactly when I’m ovulating more accurately than the calendar. I’ve bought my ovulation predictor kit and I know how to use it!
2. An appointment with my doctor will give me a chance to talk about my personal health history and anything that might affect my plans to conceive. My appointment is scheduled, and I’ve got a list of questions I want to discuss.
3. I know most couples need at least 3 months of trying to get pregnant, so I’m not holding my breath yet. I don’t need to think about seeing a specialist until I’ve been trying for 6-12 months.
