I'm trying to figure out this cycle to conceive. Do I have sex before my menstrual or after ? Do I have sex when I know I'm ovulating ?

however cheesy it sounds I used an app and it told me when I was fertile and ovulating and we did it about everyother day during that period and finally pregnant,(: it does help if you have atleast pretty regular periods for the apps though.

So if you start your menstrual on the 5th and then you end on the 10th, I would then add 13 days to that and start trying to conceive on the 23-27th. You can also buy super cheap ovulation strips at the local drug store, and that will tell you when you are ovulating. Those helped me a lot! You get like 30 strips and pee on them every day and when you are ovulating it turns a different color. :)

With my first pregnancy, i conceived right after my period. With my last pregnancy I also conceived a couple days after mY period and I conceived on the last day of my period with this pregnancy.

Really ? Wow , interesting ! I will definitely do that . So when those strips turn colors that would mean its time to have intercourse ?

I usually get my menstrual on the 5th every month and end in like 5-6 days . So would have to wait for 2-3 weeks to try and conceive ? Also , usually a couple days later I'm ovulating ? What does that usually mean ?

Usually you have sex ideally 13-18 days after the last day of your last period. I always ovulated 14-16 days after the last day. I hope that helps!
