If you are trying to get pregnant, you might be wondering about when you are most fertile and how to figure out the best days for trying to conceive. You’re probably somewhat familiar with the term ovulation as it relates to pregnancy. When ovulating, your egg travels from the ovary, down the fallopian tube and is then available for fertilization. For most women, ovulation occurs between the eleventh and twenty-first day of their menstrual cycle. Although, ovulation can occur at different times each month; this makes keeping track of your monthly cycle significantly important when trying to conceive. It’s also important to remember that stress, illness or even a change in your normal routine can affect your ovulation. Check out the ovulation calculator to help you determine your best chance for conception.
