Charting, using ovulation predictor tests (I ultimately started using a fertility monitor), paying attention to the clues my body gives such as cervix position, cramping/ovulation pains, cervical fluid, etc. Using pre-seed for lubricant during my fertile window, drinking green tea to increase fertile cervical mucous, understanding fertility in general really helped, and of course timing intercourse!

There are lots of tips in the TTC board sticky -- worth a read!

Good luck!
