Your fertile window refers to the most fertile days in your menstrual cycle which give you the highest chance of conceiving. The most fertile days in your cycle are the days leading up to ovulation , before the egg is released from the ovary. After ovulation the egg survives for just 24 hours, while sperm retain fertilising capability for two to three days in the fallopian tubes. For this reason, we recommend that couples have sexual intercourse every two days throughout the fertile window. Our online ovulation calculator can help you understand your fertile window. To calculate your fertile window, you need to determine what day you ovulate.
Having sex intercourse during this time gives you the best chance of getting pregnant. Ovulation is when a mature egg is released from the ovary. The egg then moves down the fallopian tube where it can be fertilised. Pregnancy is technically only possible if you have sex during the five days before ovulation or on the day of ovulation. But the most fertile days are the three days leading up to and including ovulation. Having sex during this time gives you the best chance of getting pregnant. By hours after ovulation, a woman is no longer able to get pregnant during that menstrual cycle because the egg is no longer in the fallopian tube.
Getting pregnant is first and foremost a question of timing due to the fact that women can conceive only in the days around ovulation. It is possible to get pregnant only if sperm and egg cells come together within a short time span. Timing is therefore very important. We would like to offer you the ovulation calculator, so that you can identify the right time a little easier. By entering some information about your menstruation, you can easily determine the best days for conception.
It will help you keep track of the most fertile days when you can more easily conceive. The ability to conceive is miraculous. The male sperm can live for about three days.
