When am I Fertile?

You're more likely to become pregnant in any particular month if you have intercourse during your most fertile period - the days just before and after you ovulate. Ovulation usually occurs about 14 days before the start of your next menstrual period. If you would like to figure out when you're likely to ovulate next, you'll need to know the approximate length of your menstrual cycle.

Your menstrual cycle begins with the first day your period starts (called "Day 1"). It ends the day before your next period starts. The average length of a menstrual cycle is 28 days. However, it is not at all unusual for women to have longer or shorter cycles. If you're not yet pregnant and you want to determine the length of your cycle, use the calendar to track your menstrual cycle.


Common signs of early pregnancy

The signs below are other early indicators of pregnancy, which may occur before a missed period. Many women do not notice these until later in pregnancy.
You may experience all, some or none of these symptoms.sleep
  • Feeling nauseous, particularly in the mornings.
  • Frequent trips to the Bathroom.
  • Increased tiredness.
  • Tenderness in the breasts.
  • Changes in taste or food craving.
  • Slight bleeding or spotting or cramping
  • Elevated basal body temperature (BBT)

You want a Boy ? boy

It is believed that if intercourse takes place closer to ovulation, then the probability is greater that the child will be male, due to the high motility (forward progression) and the decreased life span of the sperm. If you want a boy - aim for later intercourse before ovulation - say about 1 day before ovulation. Frequent intercourse around the time of ovulation. Have your partner wear boxers. A male with a high sperm count is more likely to have a boy.

You want a Girl ? girl

The sperm with the X chromosome - or female chromosome - have a longer life span than the male sperm, but exhibit decreased motility. Therefore, intercourse that takes place earlier may provide increased probability of a girl.
You want - a girl. You know you ovulate 14 days into your cycle. You must deliver sperm no earlier than 4 days before ovulation. This way, the Y carrying sperm will likely be expired and the X carrying sperm still viable. When the egg is released at about 5 days after intercourse, the X carrying sperm will be in the fallopian tube waiting. X chromosome sperm fertilizes the egg, a girl will be conceived.

The critical and perhaps not so obvious tip - don't repeat intercourse again for a week! Make sure fertilization is with 'mature sperm'. To sum up: If you want a girl - aim for earlier intercourse before ovulation - at least 4 days before you ovulate.
