and

the woman's body temperature rises by about 0.2?C and maintains this higher temperature until her next period.
By measuring temperature as soon as you wake and entering the reading on a chart, you can see when you
ovulate. Ideally you want to have sex just before then. You can't turn the clock back of course, but the chart

month. The temperature rise is small and you may feel more confident with an ovulation kit available from your
chemist..     * try to lower your stress levels. Stress can affect either partner and may reduce your chances
of conceiving. Try to have a few days away from work just before ovulation is due..      * if you have been
unsuccessful for a year or more it is worth talking to your physician.
