When you are trying to conceive, it’s important to know when the nature is on your side. Every month during your ovulation period everything lines up to make your path to become a mother much smoother.
To determine the most fertile day (or even days) of the month for you, you first need to know how long your menstrual cycle lasts. It is different for every woman, taking from 22 to 36 days. Your cycle is the number of days from the start of your period to the day before your next period starts.
Ovulation itself lasts for approximately 24 hours. Our calculator shows you 5 highlighted days, the darkest of which is your ovulation day. During those 24 hours, one or more eggs is being released from your ovaries and conditions for getting pregnant are ideal. Fertilitypedia can also calculate your overall chance to get pregnant in the next year.
Apart from waiting until D-day arrives, there are lots of other things you can do to boost your chances to get pregnant. That includes eating well, ensuring your body receives enough vitamin C and D, zinc, iron and protein. Along with good nutrition, try to get in some moderate excersize and reduce stress. You should also drink responsibly, and we’re talking about both alcohol and caffeine.
