Getting Pregnant Tips

Getting Pregnant Tips – When trying to conceive, you need to know your ovulation day and your fertile days (the days intercourse can result in conception).

A woman’s fertile period during her menstrual cycle, on average, lasts about seven days: seven days before ovulation (the release of the egg), the day of ovulation, and the day after ovulation. After this, chances of conception decrease quickly, as the egg has a short life-span of about 24 hours.

Given this somewhat narrow window of opportunity for conception, understanding the menstrual cycle can help increase a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant. The key is to predict ovulation with as much precision as possible. Of course, both the length and regularity of menstrual cycles vary greatly among women – so successful ovulation prediction depends both on understanding the general dynamics of the menstrual cycle, as well as a woman’s own unique cycles and patterns. Since there are only a few days each cycle when conception is possible, focusing intercourse on these days dramatically increases your conception chances.

The table below is our ultimate tips for getting pregnant guide. It has been broken down into tips for men and tips for women, remember having a baby is usually a team event.
