Hitting a bed frequently doesn’t boost your chances of getting pregnant. It actually reduces the number of healthy sperm. So, know about your peak fertile days and have sexual intercourse during that time.
What is The Right Time to Have Sex?
A woman’s body is most fertile during the time of ovulation. And the highest probability of conception is when you have sex during 5 days before the day of ovulation (release of an egg from one of the ovaries) and 5 days after that.
During this process, a mature egg reaches the uterus through the Fallopian tube. At this time, chances are higher for your sperm to meet your partner’s egg in the uterus and get fertilized. Also, a sperm stays inside a woman’s body for around 5 days so during this time if the egg is released, you may get pregnant.
When do Women Ovulate?
Menstruation is a 28-30 days cycle. Each cycle starts on the first day you have your period and ends a day before your next period begins. Count these days and find a mid point of your cycle. In case of a 28 days cycle, you will ovulate approximately on day 14.
