Here is some informative information gathered from the internet, and medical textbooks that helped me. Hopefully it can also help my readers. I found that this might be cheaper than actually getting a fertility monitor, and still allows you to stay on top of things when the time comes to calculate how much time you have to conceive in between periods. Of course, every woman is different and you might ovulate sooner or later depending on your specific cycle so its not 100%, but it might help you just a bit.
If you want to calculate when you will ovulate and be the most fertile next then you should start tracking your menstrual bleeding. This is because you do not have to spend money on purchasing ovulation kits if you learn the signs of ovulation from your body each month that it comes. It is known as fertility awareness, and a lot of women who are trying for a family learn to sight the signs.
Keep track of when you receive menstrual bleeding each month to pinpoint when you will get your period next. Once you have your period on a schedule then you can start looking into when you will ovulate next. A woman usually ovulates 14 days before her next period. Every woman is different, and some may ovulate sooner or later than 14 days. This is going off a normal 28 day cycle starting from the first day that your period arrives.
Once a woman ovulates then the sperm only has 24 hours to make it to the egg in order to fertilize it. Remember that sperm can live up to seven days inside a woman after unprotected intercourse. The most fertile days are usually the first few days before ovulation. This fertile phase lasts for up to 24 hours after ovulation so it is recommended by fertility specialists to try to conceive a few days prior to ovulation since sperm can live up to seven days within the woman and has more of a chance to make it there during the time of ovulation.
This is one solution a woman who is trying to conceive should look into. If you use the rhythm method to not become pregnant then you should also know when your most fertile days are to ensure that you have less of a chance to become pregnant. If you have more questions or concerns with your menstrual bleeding than you should seek advice from your doctor or fertility specialist. Irregular periods may become a problem if you’re trying to track your fertile days, talk to a specialist to find out what your options are when it comes to regulating it. This is not a sure way to become pregnant since every woman’s body is different.
It might be tough to conceive, and you might have had a hard road but you should make sure to be surrounded by supportive friends and family. This will help you get everything together for when you make a family of your own.
