What is ovulation?
Each month, there are only a few days when you have the highest chances of getting pregnant! These are the days around ovulation, which is the time your ovary releases a tiny egg that is ready to be fertilised by a sperm.
Knowing the days you are most likely to be fertile can increase your chance of getting pregnant.
How to know that you are ovulating
The typical menstrual cycle is 28 days long, but each woman is different. Fertile windows are different for every woman and can be different from month to month in the same woman.
There are about 6 days during each menstrual cycle when you can get pregnant. This is called your fertile window. Ovulation signals that your body is ready for conception. Once a month a mature egg is released from the ovary, where it lies in wait for fertilisation. This is your ‘ Window’ of opportunity and the best time to increase your chances of trying to conceive.
