Treatment to your infertility is not a herculean task - Dr Rita Bakshi

Best time for me to get pregnant?

Thinking of when to try for pregnancy? Confused about how to get pregnant faster? The key factor behind a successful pregnancy is to have intercourse at the perfect time and decide the best time for you to get pregnant, which entirely depends on your menstrual cycle. In order to conceive, you need to have intercourse in the most fertile period or when you’re ovulating i.e 10th-20th day post your monthly period cycle.


How ovulation helps in making me pregnant?


Once you had intercourse with your partner and your period arrives, few eggs start developing into tiny, fluid-filled structures called follicles. Every follicle releases an egg and this is called ovulation. This occurs at least two weeks prior to your upcoming periods. Once an egg is released from the follicle, the follicle becomes a corpus luteum. It secretes a hormone to prepare the uterine lining for embryo implantation. The egg travels towards the fallopian tube and stays in the fallopian tube for 24 hours only and waits for the sperm to reach the egg for fertilization.


Does having intercourse on alternative days boost my pregnancy chances?


Couples who are trying to conceive were usually advised to have intercourse on every day during the female partner’s fertility window. However, now couples are now asked to have intercourse on alternative days. This allows the male partner to build up enough sperms and henceforth, making conception easier.


Closing Thoughts


Having basic knowledge about fertility period, ovulation and ovarian reserve can help you in knowing the right time to plan for pregnancy. Every couple should plan for a baby before 35 years, ideally within 32 years of age, as the chances of conception are higher. Women beyond 35 years of age observe a significantly poor ovarian reserve as her egg quality begins to decline. If you are in your reproductive years, it is highly advisable to try for a baby as soon as possible before it’s too late
