I have realized in my little time practicing that women do not really take advantage of their fertility window in their monthly cycle

There is nothing about improving your chances of conceive if timing is not done properly. Proper timing is an important key to maximize its use if you want to improve your chances in any menstrual cycle.

What does it entail?

It entails taking advantage of your fertile window in every cycle if you want to conceive. The idea is very simple. The fertile window is the period, usually a few days in the woman’s cycle when she  is fertile and can conceive. It is important to recognize this period and it is usually around the ovulation period.

So it is very logical and important that in any menstrual cycle irrespective of the length of the cycle, every woman should be able to know when she experiences ovulation.

Let’s look at this way,

Using the chart below to get a better understanding.


This chart shows a 28 – 32 days cycle of a woman. So if the number of days of your cycle falls within, then the chart will help you.

From the onset of menstruation, a short period of infertility is on and this runs to about the eighth day. This period is called the pre- ovulatory infertile phase.

You can see from the chart, these days are in red.

From the eighth day of the cycle till possibly the 19th day are fertile periods after which the following days that  concludes the cycle are infertile days and are referred to as post ovulatory infertile phase.

So how can you take advantage of your fertile days to conceive?

It is important to know that the sperm can live between three to five days under standard conditions.

But the egg lives between 12 – 24 hours.

If you have the normal 28 day cycle, you can start bedding from day 8 to day 10. That is three good days.

What happens here is this, once fertile cervical mucus is present (as it begins to build up), the sperm can survive in it for a good period of time as long as 5 days.You simply allow the sperm to wait for the golden egg.

There after you can begin checking for ovulation signs to be very sure when ovulation will occur.

To do this use an OPK (ovulation prediction kits),  and once it gives you a positive sign, begin to bed and continue for another three days in a row .

With this you have maximally used your fertile window.

A day after your ovulation, you can introduce the eating of pineapple and its core for the next five days. All you need do is cut the whole pineapple into five pieces and eat a piece each for five days.This helps with implantation.

So depending on the length of your cycle, you have to work at knowing exactly when you ovulate.

You can also use the ovulation calculator on this site to give you an idea when ovulation is likely to occur.

Timing using this method helps to improve your overall chances of conceiving within a particular menstrual cycle.

You never can tell, out of the hundreds of swimmers discharged to fertilize that important egg,one aggressive one will do the job.

It is just a matter of the more beddings you make the greater your chances.
