Timing Sex At the Most Fertile Days

Jan 30, 2009
One of the most important things for getting pregnant is timing the most fertile time of woman's cycle. The day of ovulation is ideal for having sex in order to conceive. But it doesn't mean that you should only have intercourse on the day of ovulation in order to conceive. There are several factors that increase your chances to conceive:

When it is better to have sex for conception?

According to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, you should have sex quite often (at least several times) a week around the ovulation phase.
The egg that is released during ovulation lives from 6 up to 24 hours, during that time it can be fertilized by sperm. Sperm usually lives about three days but in some cases can live up to 7 days in cervical mucus. This means that having sex 6 to 3 days before ovulation and during ovulation, you have the highest chances of conceiving. Thus your chances to conceive during ovulation are 40 percent, chances to conceive 1 to 2 days before ovulation are 30 percent, 4 to 6 days you have 10 percent chances to conceive.
It is also important to have sex regularly throughout the cycle, not only during ovulation, because this will boost the quality of sperm.

Timing your fertile time


Calculating fertile days

An average woman's cycles will range from 21 up to 35 days and may also vary throughout the year. The menstrual cycle starts from the first day of your period and the days between the first and the next period determine your cycle length. In order to determine your most fertile days you need to keep track of your menstrual cycles for about 6 months to find your shortest and longest menstrual cycle. You need to subtract 14 days from the length of your average cycle. For example, if your average cycle is 25, then ovulation occurs about 11 days after the first day of your period. This method can be quite tiresome for some women especially for those who have irregular cycles.

Basal body temperature

Tracking your basal body temperature is another method to find out your most fertile time. Take temperature in your rectum or in your mouth every morning for about 3 months, before awakening and getting up. The temperature rises when ovulation has occurred. You are most fertile 4-6 days before and 1-2 days after the temperature rise.

Cervical mucus changes

The changes in the consistency of your cervical mucus can predict your most fertile time. These secretions occur due to hormonal changes. When the menstruation ends, the mucus is dry and it becomes wetter leading up to ovulation until it is the consistency of raw egg, slippery and stretchy during ovulation and this means that you are most fertile during this phase.

Ovulation Predictors tests

Today there are a number of handy and convenient tools to help you predict your most fertile time during menstrual cycle. You can buy the ovulation tests and use them at home to determine when you are most likely to conceive. There are two basic types of ovulation tests.

The first types are ovulation tests that determine the increase of luteinising hormone(LH) that takes place about 12 to 36 hours before ovulation. This type of ovulation test detects the amount of LH hormone in a sample of blood or urine.

The second type is saliva-based ovulation tests. They determine the surge of the oestrogen levels that occurs near ovulation. They come in the form of small portable microscope that detects when your saliva takes fern-like pattern, taking place at the time leading up to ovulation.

I was trying to conceive for years after my marriage without any child, my husband was an understanding and encouraging even though deep pressure was coming from my inlaws, my husband started acting very strange at home, coming home late and not spending time with me any more, he couldn't just divorce me like that, because of the love he have for me. but i know i was loosing him gradually due to the me not giving him a child, So i became very sad and lost in life, this really make life so hard for me and a friend told me about a native spiritualist who help women to get pregnant fast, how she had helped people with this similar problem that i am going through. so i contacted her and explain to her. she will pray about my marriage and do give some herbal herbs to take and a child will be a blessing to my marriage. i never taught it could happen to me after all the years i have tried and it was a miracle three days later my husband started to apologize for all he has done and told me he is fully ready to support me in any thing i want, two weeks later i got pregnant and gave birth to my son and i and my husband we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Doc Natasha for saving my relationship and for also saving others too. continue your good work, i will drop her contact here for those who seek her help also.

I sure as hell did. When my now 3 YO, was 3 weeks old I noticed light brown spots on the back of her thghis, and a few on her groin, about 6 of them the size of a fingertip or more. I asked her Ped at our check-up, the Ped assured me it was nothing and to keep putting the HRT on my DDs labial adhesion. I kept noticing more and more spots, bigger on her tummy and chest and back.I GOOGLED, and found neurofibromatosis, and read that HRTs exacerbate the symptoms. I stopped the cream, especially after I read that adhesions usually clear up on their own.When I next saw the Ped I mentioned I thought it was neurofibromatosis, she looked thoughtful for a moment, and then SHE GOOGLED it! and them agreed with me and asked me to stop creaming DD.Nearly every Dr I have seen lately, uses their little laptop and google, NF related questions or not.So unless you're a hypochondriac, paranoid, or a moron, googling symptoms really is not much different IMO than asking a professional who's probably gonna do the same thing. It's just best to consult both.Drs are people too, and Frankly, I think the power we give to them is misplaced.Yes, they are good things, but I truly believe we need to be more informed about our bodies and health ourselves. http://rplrcawpk.com [url=http://iusgofqx.com]iusgofqx[/url] [link=http://exhheddpgn.com]exhheddpgn[/link]

I'm a little late to the party on a wi-fi free <a href="http://dsrailruz.com">vataicon</a> last week but I wanted to add to the congratuations. What wonderful news.Your post brought tears to my eyes and memories to my brain and heart. I too thought that, after 2 miscarriages and 2 healthy babies, I was done. Not because I wanted to be I really wanted a third baby, but because more fertility treatments were too expensive and too heartbreaking and I was too old. And, at the time, my dad was dying of cancer. He essentially died on my 40th birthday (I have yet to find someone who can top my sucky birthday story). I was exhausted and not sleeping well so were my mom and brother. It had been an emotional year. I had 2 babies under 3. Of course I was tired. Really tired. Then I began to feel sick a familiar kind of sick. I still remember getting up early on a Saturday morning. The house was quiet and I put the coffee on and took the test. I stared in utter disbelief as I, a 40 year old infertile woman, looked at a positive prenancy test. Then I turned to fretting that they would take it back. I immediately called my fertility doc who thought it was hysterical and put me on meds right away. I prayed so hard to keep that baby, that little ray of hope in our world that was so sad after my dad's passing. And you know what? The world let us keep that ray of sunshine and she is now the happiest, sweetest, smartest little 7 year old on the planet. And, when I try very hard to plan things, she is my reminder that some of this shit is just not up to us to plan. Some things just happen because they are meant to be.Anyway, enough about me. I am so happy for you and will send good thoughts your way for an easy pregnancy and, more importantly, a healthy baby!

Like the other commenter, I agree that these are prteecfly good reasons why an insurance company should cover birth control. But there is no justification for the government FORCING them to do so.

WoW.. this is soo relieving to read <a href="http://dxwfhtmwi.com">artelcis</a> like this. I had an ectopic pregnancy in Januarary 2011. I have a 4 year old son. I got one fallopian tube removed due to the ectopic pregnancy and 3 months later after the ectopic pregnancy we have been trying to conceive with no success. I did get my check up with my gynecologist 3 times already and I was adviced that I was fine and could keep trying. I would like to receive a sample of your products to try them out. We are more than ready for our last child. Hope to get good news. I appreciate for this information posted as well. Thank you.

you can take a test but you don't want to get your hopes up with a chemical <a href="http://wluxtkg.com">prngcaeny</a>. I would wait until you actually miss your period and then test that way you know that you really are pregnant. Sometimes when you take an early test it will detect that you are pg but then you can have an early miscarriage and get AF as expected. I know its sad to say but it would be an even sadder thing to go through and is actually fairly common. I know it's hard and I've been there but just try to wait until wednesday to test.

Crazy stuff. I'll admit I never thought about tiankg pictures of my cervix- now I'm curious. Sure you can find out what the cervix looks like just by googling it. But I've never thought to look at my own. I could actually see how this could even be an interesting/helpful pregnancy tool. Obviously it would be more of a learning/information gathering experience the first time around. But getting to see the changes late in pregnancy and know if those Braxton Hicks are just that, or have changed to the real thing could be pretty cool. I might just have to ask my husband to bring me home a speculum.
