One of the tools you can use to improve your chances of conceiving, is the ovulation
calculator. This will help you determine the dates when you are most fertile and
hence, are most likely to conceive.
You cannot fall pregnant unless you are ovulating. If your menstrual cycle is regular,
then you are almost certainly ovulating regularly. The length of your menstrual
cycle will determine when you are likely to ovulate. The best way to conceive is
to have intercourse around the time that you are ovulating.
To find out when you're most fertile, enter the first day of your last menstrual
period and then the numbers of days of your cycle (usually between 20 and 45 days).
Before trying to fall pregnant, keep a detailed diary of when your periods fall
to determine the length of your cycle. This calendar will act as a guide. There
are no guarantees that you will definitely ovulate between the days given, or that,
if you do, you will necessarily fall pregnant in that particular cycle.
