Because every woman is different, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact time when ovulation will occur. While some women have a 28 day cycle, it is common for cycles to vary by a few days on either side of this timeframe. Many women also have irregular cycles, meaning that knowing when they will ovulate will be extremely difficult. Claim Your 20 Free Ovulation Tests – Click Here
For a woman that has a 28 day cycle, she normally begins ovulating 14 days after the last day of her period. Ovulation is the when the egg is released in the hopes that fertilization will occur. The egg will only be available for 24 hours after it has been released.
In order to become pregnant, it is important for sperm to be present when the egg is released. Because of this, it is best to have intercourse a day or so before ovulation occurs. Sperm can actually live in the body for a few days, so having intercourse before you ovulate can help you to become pregnant quickly.
If you are looking to become pregnant, it is best to monitor your ovulation cycle to be able to pinpoint your fertile days, so that you will know exactly when you are fertile. There are a few ways that you can do this, but basal thermometers and ovulation predictor kits are the most popular.
