When are you most fertile?

Not all women experience their menstrual cycle in the same way. Some are calmer than others. Some tend to burst into tears more easily as their period approaches. Some may feel crampy and tired during their period, others don't feel any ill effects. This cycle a woman's body goes through each month is unique to them. It does, however, play a huge role in fertility no matter how you experience it.

To be sure when you'll be most fertile, make sure to track your menstrual cycle on a calendar or in your diary. Live healthily, keep track of your cycle and do loads of the 'baby dance' and before you know it, you should be expecting your very own bundle!

Here's an idea of how your menstrual cycle should be working, but bear in mind that the number of days of the cycle, and the length of the period can vary from woman to woman:
