Women typically question if they are fertile or not when they wish to conceive a child. They may think about fertility when they get their very first period because now their body is capable of getting pregnant but the fact remains that more women are concerned about whether or not they are fertile when it comes time to make a baby intentionally. A woman may also wonder this once she has become engaged to be married and the couple starts talking about when they want to have a baby or when they have a discussion about not wanting to get pregnant. Every woman should understand the signs of fertility and know whether or not her body is showing these signs because if she is of the age where she should be fertile and these signs are missing, this could be an important medical piece of information.
If the female is lucky she received some reproductive health education from her parents and or from her school between the ages of 12 and 18. Females usually see a gynecologist before or just after the first sexual intercourse experience at which time information about fertility should also be given to her.
There are many books about the topic of fertility including:

Your cervical fluid gives women signs of fertility. Women learn to “read” cervical secretions in order to predict when they are likely to ovulate. Cervical fluid changes in consistency and color during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Typically dry and sticky fluid indicates “sub-fertile” days when a woman’s fertility is low according to Childbirth Solutions, Inc.’s Website and cervical fluid that has become watery, creamy, whitish or clear and very thin is all signs that a woman’s fertility is rising.
Some women chose to learn how to check cervical position for signs of fertility. Childbirth Solutions Inc., indicates that the cervical position changes as a woman goes through the stages of her menstrual cycle and that high levels of estrogen in her body at the time of ovulation causes the cervix to rise slightly and softens and slightly opens the cervix. If a woman can notice these cervical changes she will be able to spot these signs of fertility.
