The correct answer to this question would certainly depend on the woman, as it is her body and choice when to get pregnant. If the woman and her partner agree that they are ready to start a family, the best time for the woman to try getting pregnant is after ovulation. It is best to start a day after ovulation.
This is because ovulation is the release of the woman's egg, which normally occurs after the woman's period and lasts for roughly 14 days. If the woman has sex during this time, the sperm can fertilize the egg and increase the chances of pregnancy.
Typically the best advised time to get pregnant is when one is married and is financially capable of taking care of another person and their needs. But now this is also for partners who want to start a family of their own. The probability that one will get pregnant is when they have sex during the fertility window.
The sperm can live up to 7 days within the uterus and thus this could also result in one getting pregnant. This can be done if one has planned their family and are taking appropriate measures towards it. The first step is to track your cycles and find out the ovulation period which comes at about 2 weeks after the start of your period.
Some say that this can be ensured by the vaginal discharge, increased libido or pain on one side of the back. So if one has sex on the 5 days leading to the day of ovulation and on the day of ovulation, they have higher chances of getting pregnant.
Of course, this is for women or couples who want to start and are prepared to start a family. If you and your partner are ready to have a child, the best time to have sex is after a day or so of ovulation. Ovulation, or release of an egg from the ovary, is about 14 days after the day of your last menstruation.
This is if your menstrual cycle is regular or lasts for 28 days. An egg can live outside the ovary for a day or two so, for a higher chance of getting pregnant, it must be fertilized by a sperm during this time. It is best to use the counting method to know when is the best time to try for you to get pregnant.
