Trying to Fall Pregnant?
Timing is everything when trying to get pregnant!
Monitoring your Ovulation
The best time to get pregnant is when you are ovulating. Ovulation occurs around the middle of the menstrual cycle.
If the average length is 28 days, then 14 days into the menstrual cycle is ovulation day.
Every women is different and menstrual cycles can vary between months, causing many couples to miss the fertile window by having intercourse at the wrong time.
When the ovary releases the egg it is picked up by the fallopian tube. For a conception to occur there needs to be intercourse and sperm in adequate numbers capable of swimming and fertilising the egg within the fallopian tube.
After intercourse, sperm can survive for 3 days in the womb, however the egg survives for only 24 hours. Therefore getting your timing right is important!
Know Your Fertile time!
Predicting your fertile days by guesswork can often be hit and miss – and stressful.
Tracking your ovulation is the best way to pin point your fertile time giving you peace of mind that you have not missed the opportunity. The best method to predict your fertile time of ovulation is detecting The LH Surge. Clinical studies have shown that women with more awareness of their fertile days have an increased chance of becoming pregnant.(1,2)
Ovulation is triggered by a surge of Luteinising hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland. This surge occurs 24 – 36 hours before ovulation and can be tracked accurately in your urine using ovulation tests.
