Ovulation - Fertility

Good morning everyone, I am confused between being fertile and ovulation when it is time to concieve.

My situation is that I am trying to get pregnant and I came on my period January 17th, 2006 and had intercourse from February 2nd, 2006-February 5th, 2006. Do I have a good chance of concieiing. What is the difference between being fertile and ovulation,thanks, anxiously waiting.

Re: Ovulation - Fertility

Hi Prestige, being fertile is the period of time building up to ovulation and ovulation itself. You need to BD (babydance/intercourse) before ovulation so that the sperm are there waiting for the egg to be released. The egg is then fertilised in the fallopian tube and passes down into your uterus to find a nice place to embed itself.

You really need to find out when you ovulate. We have been trying for 8 years and for the first 2-3 years I never knew when I ovulated , we just had unprotected sex and hoped for the best. I now wish we had taken a bit more time to learn about my cycle and ovulation and maybe we would have got pregnant sooner.

Buy some Ovulation predictor kits so you can know exactly when is the best time for you to BD.

Good luck xxx
