Fertility awareness means getting to know your body and your menstrual cycle. It can be an effective way to find your most fertile time of month and help maximise your chances of getting pregnant.
There's lots more detail about finding your most fertile time on our Planning a Pregnancy page.
If you're trying to get pregnant then you'll want to maximise your chances of conceiving. For some women pregnancy happens quickly, but for others it can take longer.
