Getting pregnant is about timing. Women have a couple of days during their menstrual cycle when they are fertile. These days are called the “fertile window”. If you want to improve your chances of conception, timing is important.
The fertile window is made up of five days prior to ovulation, the day of ovulation and the days following ovulation. In some women, the fertile window is shorter than five days.
The fertile window is the period of time in which sperm and eggs can survive in the most optimal environment. This time period is when the sperm and eggs have the best chance of reaching the fallopian tubes and forming a baby.
There are many ways to determine your fertile window. These include tracking your ovulation and period with an ovulation and period tracker.
The luteal phase is the time between ovulation and the next menstrual cycle. The luteal phase can last from 10 to 16 days. A woman’s body temperature increases in this time.
The best time to get pregnant is often a combination of the fertility signs and your emotional readiness to become a parent. In the first three decades of your life, the chances of conception are high. However, the odds start to decrease after age 35.
