“Pregnant.” This may just be the word you are looking for. You may be trying to get pregnant or perhaps you are wondering if you could be pregnant. You may be feeling a variety of emotions regarding the possibility of pregnancy. Know that you are not alone.
Getting pregnant is tied to ovulation and having intercourse at the appropriate time. You can use our Free Ovulation Calendar to try and determine when ovulation is occurring. With the average 28 to 30 day cycle, ovulation usually occurs between day 11 and day 21 of your cycle. Please note when you ovulate during this window may vary from month to month.
The simplest way to get pregnant is to have intercourse every other day of your cycle starting from day 10 through day 20. There is no need to have sex every day because sperm can live from 2 to 5 days in the woman’s body. However, fresh healthy sperm every other day will increase your chances of conceiving.
