Welcome to My Fertility! My name is Vicki and I am going to share with you my story and explain how I am in the position to help you get pregnant faster.
My journey to pregnancy began in the summer of 2013 and I often think about the anxiety I could of avoided when trying to conceive if I knew then what I know now. I am not a fertility expert but from doing a lot of research I know that I have 2 common fertility issues. The first (high prolactin levels) was delaying my ovulation and lengthening my cycles and the 2nd was preventing me from conceiving (low progesterone levels). Having spoken to my GP briefly with no real solution offered, I decided to take control of my fertility and I found solutions for my fertility issues. It took me nearly 2 years to successfully fall pregnant with my son and only one month to fall pregnant with my daughter. I believe this is due to my increased knowledge about the menstrual cycle and fertility problems and the possible routes that can be used to overcome them. By following a few quick and easy steps each day I got to know my own body/menstrual cycle which helped me to feel empowered and you will too. You will be confident that you had sex at the right time which will reduce your anxiety levels and this in turn will give you a more positive ‘trying to conceive’ (TTC) experience. I have spoken to and advised many of my friends who have been trying to get pregnant for many months and I have helped them to understand their cycles and have guided and supported them on their journey. I find it extremely fulfilling to pass on what I know to other women who are just starting out or who are struggling to get pregnant and it is a privilege to help them on this exciting but all to often stressful journey. I would love to help you too.
Knowledge is power
Knowledge is power and I want to share my knowledge with you! Whether you are just starting your journey or whether you have been trying to conceive for a while with no luck, I can help. I believe the simple steps I will guide you through will enable you to understand your own menstrual cycle and to know your most fertile days. With my help you can discover when in your cycle you actually ovulate as opposed to using the averages drilled into us from a young age. You will then know when in your cycle is the best time to ‘do the deed’ and if you have any problems with your cycle you can then go to speak to your doctor about it with hard evidence.
Let me help you.
Like I said above, I am not a fertility expert or gynaecologist and there are some fertility issues I cannot help you uncover. From my website however you will know your menstrual cycle inside and out which is a great starting place on your journey to getting pregnant. I am a normal women who decided that she wanted a baby but was faced with month after month of disappointment and after 2 miscarriages I had hit rock bottom. I needed someone to speak to who knew what I was going through but my obsession was my own so I pumped all of my energy in finding solutions to my own fertility problems. I want to help you by saving you months of guess work. Why ask yourself over and over….”have I ovulated yet?” …..”did I have sex at the right time?” ….” why is my period late but my pregnancy test is negative?” By taking a few minutes out of your day to collect the information you need, you can know for sure where you are in your cycle and give yourself a great advantage.
I am a women just like you.
I am a women just like you who wanted to have a baby. I know how it feels to be disappointed every month. I know how it feels to lose a baby. I know what it is like to see pregnant women and babies everywhere and to feel jealous of the countless pregnancy announcements and scan photos on Facebook. When I sit writing pages for this website every evening, I think about my two children upstairs in their beds asleep and I feel overwhelmed with how lucky I am to be their mum. Without taking control and making things happen, broadening my knowledge and being pro-active, I would probably not be a mum yet. You may think it is never going to happen for you but it really can. There are unfortunately a small percentage of women who are truly infertile and I cannot imagine the pain that these women feel. For most of you however, even if you are really struggling to fall pregnant and have been trying for numerous years, even if you have had multiple miscarriages and feel hopeless, there are real solutions and steps you can take to successfully fall pregnant and carry that baby to term. Now is the time to take matters into your own hands and take control of your fertility.
What you will learn.
From this website you will be provided with the information that you really need to know to get pregnant faster and you will be guided step by step on how to monitor the signs that you are in your fertile window. By helping you take control and know your own cycle, you will hopefully get pregnant faster. There is so much information out there about fertility and a lot of it is written very clinically by doctors or people with degrees who have no first hand experience of the emotional stress involved when trying for a baby. More importantly, a lot of the stuff I read I didn’t really need to know. Let me help you cut corners by telling you what I have learnt from 100’s of articles and websites in a way you can understand.
All you need to know is the basics and you will feel empowered. You can learn about your own body and what is normal for you and not what the average woman’s body should do. You can take control of your fertility and feel like you are doing something pro-active. I believe that by understanding more about what was going on with my own body it greatly reduced my stress levels which can itself affect your fertility. Take control now and you will save so much time which will inevitably help you to get pregnant faster.
Below is an overview of what I will discuss on this website and if you are interested in a particular section you can find out more from the links in the ‘Recent post’ list to the right or from the drop down menu above.
My fertility – an overview
Within the pages of myfertilty.com I will take you through the basics of your menstrual cycle and what you really need to know. I will discuss in length how to chart your ovulation and what the key phases in your cycle are without overwhelming you with scientific jargon. I will explain the key aspects of ovulation and the issues you may face such as delayed ovulation, anovulatory cycles (when you do not ovulate during a cycle) and how you can help things along. We will focus on the most important time of your cycle (your fertile window) and how to best take advantage of this window of opportunity.

I will share with you how I coped after two miscarriages and where you can find help online through popular forums. In addition, I will share with you everything I have learned from years of research and what I did to improve my own fertility and that of my partners. You will learn how to improve your fertility levels naturally, the tricks you can use to help the sperm reach the egg more quickly and the must buy TTC products which I have personally tried and tested.
