Pin pointing your most fertile days

Posted by on Aug 27, 2014 in Conception, News/Articles | 0 comments

Most of us are aware of the ‘normal’ menstrual cycle,  28 – 30 days with ovulation occurring around day 14.

What you may or may not know is that most of us don’t run like clockwork! You can ovulate anywhere from day 9 to day 28. You can even have a regular menstrual cycle yet not ovulate at all.

Once released at ovulation, an egg will be viable for 24 hours so knowing when this is greatly increases your chances of conception.

Sperm need to be present within your reproductive system during this tiny 24-hour window for conception to occur.  Sperm live a little longer than our eggs and can stay viable in our system for between 3 – 5 days so your most fertile days fall 3 days before and on the day of ovulation.

So how do you know when or even if you are ovulating?
