When are the most fertile days for pregnancy

Getting sex during your fertile cycle is a good idea. Here’s how to figure out when you’ll be fertile.

It’s important to know when you’re most fertile if you’re considering a baby. The days between the eighth and nineteenth days of your menstrual cycle, when the first day of your period is considered the first day of your cycle, are the most fertile days. Having sex during your fertile cycle improves your chances of conception and pregnancy. Here are several approaches for determining the most fertile days.

  • Keep track of when you ovulate

Five days before ovulation and two days after ovulation, you’re at your most fertile. However, since no two women’s cycles are alike, the exact days vary. Keep track of your menstrual cycle for at least two or three months to figure out when you ovulate. The first day of your menstrual cycle is the first day of your period. Count the days before you get the next one and figure out how long your period is. Keeping track of two or three cycles will reveal whether the cycles are normal or irregular.

  • Determine the fertile days

A normal menstrual period for most women is 28 or 32 days. To determine your fertile period, carefully record the number of days in your shortest and longest periods. Now proceed to the following steps:

  1. Subtract 18 from the shortest cycle’s cumulative days. For example, if your shortest cycle is 28, your fertile period will be 10.
  2. Subtract 11 from the longest cycle’s cumulative days. For example, if your longest cycle is 32, your fertile cycle will be 21.
  3. On your calendar, circle the dates that fall between the first and second period days that you measured. For example, in this case, the days between 9 and 22 will be the 9th day after your cycles to the 22nd day of the cycle. These are the days when you can make an attempt at conception.
  • Make a note of your basal body temperature

When you ovulate, the basal body temperature is at its peak. This occurs as a result of multiple hormonal changes that occur inside the body as the uterus prepares for the implantation process. Measure your basal body temperature with a thermometer every morning before getting out of bed during your fertile days to keep track of it. Who says you should only make love at night while preparing for a baby? Try having sex on such mornings when your temperature drops from the previous day.

  • Examine the vaginal discharge

Did you know that your vaginal discharge varies in composition when you’re most pregnant and ready to conceive? When you are most fertile for conception, you discharge sticky and dense cervical mucus. This discharge serves a purpose; it aids in deeper penetration and transports the sperm within you to the ovum, which is awaiting fertilisation.

  • Other physical indicators to look for

Ovulation may also cause physiological changes such as a dull ache on one side of the abdomen, spotting, or tenderness in the breasts. These may be excellent indicators that you’re approaching your fertile cycle and should try to conceive as soon as possible.

Ovulation Sings

Since ovulation does not always occur on the same day per month, using a calendar to monitor your fertile window might not be the most successful method. Instead, you can get to know your body and learn how to recognise ovulation signs. While some women don’t note any physical changes during ovulation, there are typically subtle indications that an egg has been published. 

What are some of the early signs:

  • Mild abdominal cramping or pain in the lower abdomen
  • A slight increase in body temperature at rest
  • Alterations of your discharge
  • Increased desire for sex
  • A shift in your cervical mucus is another telltale indicator of ovulation. In the lining of your panties, you can notice vaginal discharge with an “egg-white” appearance. A small rise in your body temperature is also possible.

Bottom Line

You can decide when you’re most fertile by keeping track of some changes in your body. If you’re having trouble identifying the signs of ovulation, an ovulation monitoring kit can help. These devices use hormone levels in your urine to determine when you’re most fertile during the month.
