When's the best time to conceive?
The best time to conceive is during the “fertile window” – that is, during the 6-day interval ending on the day of ovulation.1
If the need to ‘schedule’ intercourse on a particular day or hour adds stress, simply increase the frequency of intercourse beginning soon after menstruation ends if the female partner is having regular menstrual cycles.
|If your cycle is irregular or shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days, ask your doctor for help with determining your fertile phase.|
