Conception – Timing is Everything

It is most couples dream to start a family some day however when disappointment occurs month after month with no conception, both partners begin to worry and stress causing further hormone upheaval interrupting a number of body systems.

Knowing your fertility window is one way to time sexual intercourse increasing the chances of impregnation.                      Timing is everything.

Is your cycle 24 days? The window of opportunity ranges from 5th to 10th day however the most fertile window is from         6th – 9th day, with ovulation occurring on the 10th day.

Is your cycle 28 days?  The window of opportunity ranges from 9th to 14th day however the most fertile window is from     10th – 13th day, with ovulation occurring on the 14th day.

Is your cycle 32 days? The window of opportunity ranges from 13th to 18th day however the most fertile window is from    14th -17th day, with ovulation occurring on the 18th day.

Confused? Knowing your mentral cycle is important to understand the changes that occur within your body.  Keeping a diary recording – internal body temp, mucus secretions and a moist or dry cervix will assist in knowing your cycle and the best time to try to conceive. Body temp will rise after ovulation, mucus secretion becomes more viscous a couple days prior to ovulation with a moist cervix assists sperm transportation.

It is recommended that sexual intercourse occurs every 2 days leading up to ovulation.

Additionally reducing stress, avoiding caffeine, alcohol, prescription or recreational drugs and sugars will all help towards conception. Preferably consuming a Mediterranean diet loaded with fresh vegetables and omega-3 mercury free fish reduces pelvic inflammation improving health and vitality. Both male and female should be on the same dietary plan as they both have equal parts to play as it were with conception.  A viable egg and healthy sperm ultimately create one amazing beautiful baby.

There are other factors to consider if infertility is an issue such as sperm count, reduced sperm motility,  body weight – malnutrition/obesity, hormone levels, stress, uterus obstruction, POCS to name a few.
