Experts believe that the most powerful chance of conceiving occurs when sex takes place 1 or 2 days before the ovulation process occurs. If you experience a regular 28 day menstruation cycle, just count back to 14 days from when you believe your next period cycle will begin.
Once you have figured out the dates, make sure you and your partner indulge in sex each other day around the time, particularly day 12 and 14. Also, remember that indulging in sex every single day can actually reduce a man’s sperm count. Some women have a longer cycle while some tend to experience a shorter one, so be sure to use an ovulation calculator to identify the exact day.
