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.
