There are many tools you can use to improve your chances of conceiving. One of them is the
ovulation calculator, which can help you determine the dates when you are most fertile and hence,
are most likely to conceive.
You cannot fall pregnant unless you are ovulating. If your menstrual cycle is regular, then you
are almost certainly ovulating regularly. The length of your menstrual cycle will determine when
you are likely to ovulate. The best way to conceive is to have intercourse around the time that
you are ovulating.
To find out when you're most fertile, enter the first day of your last menstrual period and then
the numbers of days of your cycle (usually between 20 and 45 days). Before trying to fall pregnant,
keep a detailed diary of when your periods fall to determine the length of your cycle. This calendar
will act as a guide. There are no guarantees that you will definitely ovulate between the days given,
or that, if you do, you will necessarily fall pregnant in that particular cycle.
NOTE: This tool provides approximate dates only and assumes a regular menstrual cycle. If your menstrual
cycles are irregular, you may have trouble pinpointing your day of ovulation based on the calendar
alone. In that case, contact one of our fertility specialists.
Having a baby appears to be one of the easiest things in the world, yet as many as one in five
couples experiences the frustration and sorrow of infertility. Most experts define infertility as
not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. Women who are able to get pregnant
but then have repeat miscarriages are also said to be infertile.
However, with advanced medical technology and expertise of capable physicians most infertile couples
are also able to experience the joys of parenthood.
