Many people are still unsure regarding timing for conception. I will deal with these facts in a question and answer format for easy reading. We'll call this post, Getting Pregnant 101.
1. Can a woman get pregnant any time of the month?
No. A woman's fertile days to get pregnant are only for about 5 to 6 days out of the month.
2. What does ovulation have to do with getting pregnant?
Ovulation is the day on which a woman releases an egg that can be potentially fertilized if there are sperm waiting for it. Ovulation is the day that conception actually occurs. After the egg is released, it may live for 6 to 24 hours, but likely only up to 12. If it is not fertilized before it dies, it is discarded.
3. So how is a woman fertile for 5 to 6 days if ovulation only lasts one day at most?
During the few days preceding ovulation, a woman produces fertile cervical mucus that promotes the life and movement of sperm. Sperm can live in that fertile cervical mucus for days, waiting for ovulation to occur.
4. So what's important to remember if I want to know how to get pregnant faster?
You must make sure you have intercourse during your fertile window.
Identifying those fertile days to get pregnant involves learning to check and interpret your body's fertility signals.

For those who subscribe to the Most Fertile Days Email Club, you have learned that you can't get pregnant any time of the month. In fact, you are only fertile for maybe up to 5 or 6 days out of the month. During that small fertile window, we have to maximize our chances of pregnancy.
In each ejaculate from a man, there are millions of sperm. You'd think that since millions of sperm are released, a lot of them would be able to make their way into the cervix, up the uterus, and into the fallopian tubes where the egg is slowly making its journey on ovulation day. According to Dr. E, the maker of Preseed, a sperm friendly lubricant, only thousands of the millions of sperm in ejaculate make it into the cervix, and of those only hundreds make it to the fallopian tubes! If you haven't already, you may want to try the game, The Great Sperm Race. It will help you appreciate Dr. E's observation.
This news regarding how few sperm make it up to the fallopian tubes should impress us with how critical it is to make sure as much ejaculate has contact with the cervix as possible, to give those sperm a fighting chance to get up in there! This is where the Instead Cup comes in on how to get pregnant faster. It is actually a disposable menstrual cup, whose manufacturers do not endorse it being used for any other purpose but capturing menstrual flow. But because this cup fits so neatly over the cervix, it actually is ideally suitable for holding ejaculate close to the cervix!
This is how to get pregnant faster with the Instead Cup. During your fertile window, after you have intercourse, insert the Instead Cup (as the instruction say to do) to hold the ejaculate close to the cervix. Leave it in for about 30 minutes. Since the Instead Cup is meant to be used for many hours, you may be able to safely leave it in overnight.
