According to Healthline. Time is everything while trying to get pregnant. To increase the likelihood of conception, it is essential to understand the fertile window, or the point in a woman's monthly cycle when she is most likely to become pregnant.
The viable window lasts for up to 24 hours after the release of an egg from the ovary and begins a few days before ovulation. A mature egg is released from the ovary after ovulation and travels through the fallopian tube to be fertilized by sperm. Ovulation can happen at various periods from one month to the next, even within the same woman. Nonetheless, there are some broad guidelines that may help a couple attempting to conceive decide when is the best time to engage in sexual conduct.
Monitoring the menstrual cycle is necessary to determine the viable window. The menstrual cycle, which is controlled by hormones, is the process through which the body prepares for pregnancy. The menstrual cycle lasts, on average, 28 days, though it can vary from 21 to 35 days. The two phases of the menstrual cycle that can be divided are the follicular phase and the luteal phase.
The follicular phase begins on the first day of menstruation and lasts for about 14 days. During this time, the ovaries are getting ready to release an egg. The luteal phase starts after ovulation and lasts for roughly 14 days. In the event that the egg is fertilized, the body is now preparing for conception.
To find the viable window, it's critical to track your menstrual cycle and look out for ovulation symptoms. Increased basal body temperature, changes in cervical mucus, and a slight pang or tenderness on one side of the lower abdomen are all signs of ovulation. Ovulation predictor kits, which check for luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine, can also be used to predict ovulation.
Once the fertile window has been discovered, couples may decide to schedule time together during that period. The day before and the day of ovulation are recommended for doing this. This is due to the fact that sperm can live inside the female reproductive system for up to 5 days but the egg can only survive for up to 24 hours after ovulation. By engaging in intimate conduct during the fertile window, couples can increase the likelihood that sperm will touch a viable egg.
