Be aware of your time of ovulation.

Every woman's body is different. It is important to be mindful of your body's cycle and the way it behaves, not only throughout the month, but also the year as well. If you are over the age of 30, it is likely that you may not ovulate every month. Tracking your ovulation can greatly increase your chances of conception by allowing you to know the exact day attempt to conceive. If you notice that your ovulation cycle is rare or irregular, contacting a doctor will help you find better alternatives and aids. It is also important to know that your menstrual cycle is different from your ovulation cycle. Not every woman ovulates during or right before their menstruation so it is important to consider these ideas separately.

Being on the pill after for extended periods of time can decrease your chances of conception, especially if you're over 30 years of age.

A woman does not always ovulate every month over the age of 30, the estrogen level in a woman’s body, at this period of her life, is not routinely high enough to produce a full ovulation process. This can be even more significant if you are over the age of 30 and on the pill. It is important to stop taking your birth control or remove any hormonal birth control methods immediately if you are ready to conceive. These methods will not harm the fetus, but it may decrease your chances of getting pregnant.

Diet and exercise can help your chances of conceiving.

It is important to stay healthy and active during your pregnancy and while trying to conceive. Avoid extreme exercises, and instead practice light and strengthening fitness routines, such as, yoga, swimming, biking, etc. A good diet can help with your health and your future child’s health, as well. Some foods that may increase chances of conception include avocados, bananas, chili peppers, nuts, oysters, and red wine.

Mindset and emotions can affect your conception.

Emotions can impact your chances of getting pregnant. People who are extremely depressed or stressed are less likely to conceive. This applies to men, as well. Men who are moody and jealous are often less fertile than content men. By allowing yourself to have fun and be excited to conceive, you are increasing your chances of having a happy and healthy baby.
