It's Never Too Late to Ovulate ...


If you think that having sexual intercourse any time during a given month will increase your odds of getting pregnant, you are wrong. It’s sometimes too late to ovulate because you’ve missed your window of opportunity.

Despite what your mother once tried to tell you, getting pregnant is not always easy for every couple. Having intercourse during your peak ovulation period will increase your odds of conceiving. Your most fertile time begins about four to five days before you ovulate, and ends about 24 to 48 hours later. Keep in mind that sperm can also live in your body for approximately four to five days. and your egg can live for approximately 24 to 48 hours after being released. So trying before you ovulate is key.

If you know when you ovulate, give yourself a standing ovation for ovulation!
