Basics of Conception â€“ Track Your Ovulation Period
The moment you plan to have a baby, the
first thing that the couple should do, is to track the ovulation dates. If you
are not sure on how to go about it, here are the rules that will help you incalculating your most fertile
days. The ovulation happens in the
period between your first day of menstruation and the first day of your next
cycle. Most women usually have a 28-day cycle, but it is not abnormal if the
days vary a bit here and there. The math is to take the days of your cycle that
is say 28 for an average woman and subtract 14. So the remainder 14, is the day
of your ovulation precisely. But here again you need to keep it in mind that
theovulationmay happen a day before or after the 14thday.
When you want to get pregnant, you need
to make sure that you have sexual intercourse on the days surrounding yourovulating date, that is, on the 12thday, the 14thdayand also on the 16thday. This will enhance the chances of the sperm
meeting the egg. The sperm has life for two days and if you keep having regular
intercoursein this period then the chances of the sperm meeting the egg and
fertilising it, to result in a successful conception gets higher.
Various Ovulation Prediction Methods
Seek help through the various ovulation
prediction methods to know your precise ovulation date.
It is very important that you know yourovulation date exactly when you are looking for a successful conception.
There are various ways in which you can determine it. Here are a few of them:
Start keeping a chart for maintaining
body temperature. Once you start
maintaining a chart you will get to know when your ovulation occurs every
month. You need to check your body temperature every day and note it down in
the chart. You will note that your chart is biphasic â€“ or has two distinct
phases. During the follicular phase or during the days when the ovulation
happens, the temperatures clocked are low compared to the other phase that is the
luteal phase or the post ovulation period, the temperatures clocked are high.
There is a shift of 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit after the ovulation occurs. In most
women the average temperature prior to ovulation is 96-98 degrees and it rises
up to 97-99 degrees after the ovulation occurs.
Experts say that basal body temperature
is not the surest way to determine the date you ought to have intercourse for
successful pregnancy. When you get to know that your ovulation has taken place
by monitoring the rise in temperature, it may be too late to get the sperm meet
the egg. So you need to know the ovulation dates through a regular maintaining
of the chart and plan your dates for intercourse in the following cycle taking
cues from the chart.
These are readily available at chemistoutlets. You can test your urine during your assumed ovulation phase to monitor
the lutenizing hormone. When the LH hormone records a surge, it means that
ovulation is soon to occur. It is suggested that you time your intercourse on
that day and the following day to maximise the chances of successfulconception.
Finally, keep in mind that you need to
be relaxed when you are planning a pregnancy. Eat healthy and stay away from
all ill habits. Most important stay stress free, that way you will also enhance
the chances of a successful conception.
