DUE DATE CALCULATOR
Well done and congratulations if you are pregnant. However, if you are trying to conceive – then you will need to read the information below –
Trying to conceive (TTC)? Work out when you’re most fertile to increase your chances of getting pregnant with our easy-to-use ovulation calculator.
All you need to do is put in the first day of your last period.
Then we need to know the average length of your menstrual cycle so we can calculate the window of time when you’re most fertile. While the average cycle lasts 28 days, anything from 22 to 36 days is perfectly normal, so pop your number in and press ‘submit’.
What does it mean and when are your most fertile days?
Boost your chance of conceiving
Now you know when you’re most fertile, make the ovulation calculator results work for you and figure out what you need to do to boost your chances of conceiving no matter where you are in your menstrual cycle.
Week 1 – Your period’s due
If you’ve got your period (when you were really hoping it wouldn’t happen) stay positive. Just think, if you do conceive this month, this will be considered week one of your pregnancy.
But if you think there could be some bad habits that are stopping you getting pregnant, this is a great week to make those healthy resolutions, including taking folic acid, and sticking to them!
And if that period isn’t showing up? While it’s never great to obsess about the early signs of pregnancy and when to take a pregnancy test, being aware of them is a good idea.
Week 2 – You’re almost in your most fertile week
Focusing on what you both eat in this week will help ensure you’re on top form as you come into your most fertile time. Find out the foods that boost his sperm count and help your fertility.
Remember, that TTC sex shouldn’t just be about that most fertile week. And if your heart’s set on trying to get pregnant with a girl, there is a theory that conceiving before your fertile week could help.
Week 3 – You’re in your most fertile week
You’re most fertile so now’s the perfect time to enjoy plenty of baby making sex. Find out how often, the truth about positions and how to make each, err, ‘attempt’ count here.
And while, yes, you really want to get pregnant right now, remember you want a baby with him, so it’s worth making sure TTC doesn’t take over your relationship.
Week 4 – You’re just out of your most fertile week
While trying to conceive is top of your agenda right now, keep in mind that your life isn’t all about getting pregnant and that you’re not the only couple going through this. The 10 things you only know if you’re trying to conceive should ring true.
That said, if you’re needing an excuse to have a health overhaul, this could increase your chances of conceiving, too. If you’ve decided to take your basal temperature to use alongside the ovulation calculator, now’s the time when you should be seeing a change.
