What days can I get pregnant

During the menstrual cycle a woman's ability to conceive change. It is known that pregnancy is most likely if sexual intimacy takes place in favorable period.

Around mid-cycle is the maturation of the egg and it falls from the ovary to the uterus. At this point it is completely ready for fertilization. If intimacy in women occurs during ovulation, her chances of a successful conception is maximal.

It is worth considering that the sperm retain their ability to fertilize within 3 to 5 days. If intercourse occurs 3-5 days before ovulation, pregnancy may occur. High chances of conception and within 4-6 days after oocyte maturation, as during this time she is still ready for fertilization.

Ovulation occurs about 12-14 days before the next menstruation. This means that the first week of the cycle is relatively safe. At this time, the egg has not matured, so its fertilization is theoretically impossible.

In some cases, you can get pregnant in the first week after menstruation

Some women use the calendar method of calculating ovulation as a method of contraception. However, we must remember that this method is not reliable enough.

To get pregnant immediately after your period is possible if the menstrual cycle is irregular. In this case ovulation calculate very difficult. For these purposes it is possible daily to measure the basal temperature or purchase in a drugstore a few special tests.

Immediately after a month you can get pregnant if the cycle is very short. For example, if its duration is only 21 days, the egg Matures almost immediately after the menstrual bleeding.

Experts claim that over the cycle, perhaps the maturation of not one, but 2 or even 3 eggs. If this happens only a few times a year, it is considered normal. Maturation of several eggs at different times is one of the causes of pregnancy in the first week after menstruation.

The chance of pregnancy at the beginning of the cycle has impact and vitality of sperm. In some men this figure stands at a fairly high level. It mostly depends on their health status, lifestyle, and individual characteristics. If the viability of sperm preserved for 5-7 days, and the menstrual cycle in women only lasts 21-25 days, she may get pregnant immediately after your period.
