When is a Woman Most Fertile?

Sep 15, 2008
If you ask several different people the question then is a woman most fertile? you will likely get a different answer from each one. Some of the common beliefs are that women are fertile all during the month, except during the time of their menstrual period. Others believe that the fertility period is the seven days after you finish your period. There is actually a very small window of opportunity for the fertile period during which you can become pregnant. There are only about five days during each month when a woman is most fertile.

You can take meticulous records of the start and end dates of your period, and count the days after your period ends to find when you ovulate. Ovulation takes place about 10 to 14 days after you finish your period. During ovulation your temperature rises and many women record their temperature to find these dates. The best time to get pregnant if you are using this method to determine your fertility period is the 4 or 5 days before your temperature starts to rise. This means that you need to take records of your temperature for several months in order to have an accurate reading of when you are most fertile.

With the advances in technology you can now use an interactive ovulation calculating tool. To use this type of device online, you only need to know the date on which your last period ended. Instead of assuming that your menstrual cycle is 28 days, you also have to enter the number of days in your menstrual cycle. Some women have a longer cycle than 28 days or one that is a day or two shorter. The calculator will then tell you when you are most fertile and when you will start to ovulate, if you really want to conceive, you can start having intercourse a few days before your date of ovulation because sperm will live within the reproductive tract for up to 5 days.

While you may do everything right and calculate your ovulation dates accurately, you also need to know whether you partner has a high or low sperm count. A man with a low sperm count should not have intercourse for two or three days before the fertile time or even ejaculate because then there will be bo sperm when you do set out to get pregnant.

You also have to be aware that any method of determining your fertile period is only an approximation. There is really no accurate method of pinpointing the exact time and date on which you can conceive. Using an ovulation calculator will give you an estimate of the day on which you will start ovulating, which is usually day 15 after your last menstrual cycle. This may or may not be accurate for you. You are likely to become pregnant the day after you ovulate, but after this it will be highly unlikely. Unlike the life span of the sperm, an egg can only live in the reproductive tract for 12 to 24 hours after ovulation.
