Best Time to Get Pregnant

Timing is everything

An ovarian cycle lasts around 28 days. For a baby to be conceived you must have sex around the time of ovulation -which lasts around several days. In a regular menstrual cycle this occurs about midway between periods.

The most reliable signs of ovulation are -

  • The body's temperature rises slightly after ovulation.
  • Mucus released from the cervix becomes clear, thin and stretchy during the fertile time.
  • The cervix becomes softer and slightly more open during the fertile time.

So this means constant monitoring of your body temperature and mucus change.

Use the Ovulation Calendar to keep track of your menstrual cycle.
