Getting pregnant can be challenging. There are many factors that influence the conception process. Some couples are lucky enough to conceive within the first few cycles, while others take longer. However, there are some general steps to take in order to increase your chances of getting pregnant.
One of the most important factors is to understand your body. Knowing how your body works is the best way to prepare for conception. You should know when your ovulation is, which is the day that your eggs are released from your ovary.
A fertilized egg is then implanted in the uterus. This can take up to five days. The fertilized egg will have to travel from the fallopian tubes to the uterus before implantation can occur.
Conception can take place within hours of sex, but it can also occur days later. This is known as the fertile window.
The fertile window can last from five to 15 days after sex. The sperm and egg can attach themselves to each other in the uterus for as long as five days. However, the fertilized egg needs to remain in the uterus for about twenty-four hours before it is viable.
The best time to have sex for pregnancy is during the second week after the last menstrual bleeding. You can track your cycle using an app called Flo.
In addition to knowing when you ovulate, you can also track the length of your cycle. The average cycle is 29 days long. You can determine this by counting your days of menstruation over a three-month period.
