Hey im trying to conceive and im just now getting back on track with a normal menstrual cycle after being on Birth control for only 2 months back in april and in july. I have been keeping track of my cycle now and it seems to come on the first of the month. In oct it came Oct 1st and this month it came on the 1st so im thinking 1st of the month is when it comes my period usually last 6 days 6 7 days so i wanted 2 know is that a 28 day cycle?? but when i wrote it on the ovulation calender it said 31 days HELP bc i wanna know when i should have sex ive been preg before and i hear all this ab have sex around ovulation but if i cant hit my ovulation im just gonna have sex every 3 days so i wont miss any days so i had sex sunday night & im gonna have sex tommorow & then 3 days after or maybe 2... days apart.. ive heard sperm can stay alive for 6 days to a week and is it true u can get preg if you have sex right after your period?

Hello Gabrielle,
Like you my hubby and I have been trying to conceive, however as my period is still very irregular so I bought some ovulation tests to test when the best time is to conceive. But it sounds like your period has started to regulate so good luck! Having sex between days 11-18 of your cycle is the best chance to get pregnant.

I don't know how old you are but if you are older than 28 and you are still trying on St Paddy's Day - GO TO THE DOCTOR FOR HELP - DO NOT WASTE TIME
Second, using the every three day rule is great (if your partner is ok with that) - so the 11th, 14th and 17th of the month are good days for baby making. Additional days before or after just assume that you are having fun!
If nothing happens in December, start charting your temperature (a pain but worthwhile) Check out the book "Taking charge of your Fertility" by Wechsler After you read the book, you will know more than you ever wanted about baby making but you will be able to decide if there is something wrong too.

Baby dust to you!

Menstral cycles are calculated from start date to start date. If you are on a 28 day cycle, then you can calculate by subracting 2 from your previous start date. For example, a 28 day cycle for an October 1st start date would have your next period beginning on or around October 29th. Usually a "margin of error" consists of a day or two, so anything within that framework is considered normal.

It is possible to become pregnant right before, during and right after your period! Granted the risk of this is lower, but it still is possible. It is my understanding that sperm cannot survive very long within the vagina or uterus. I have heard 48 -72 hours, but to be certain I would consult with a doctor. Hope this helps and the best of luck to you!

Yes you are on a 28 day cycle. I think that as long as you have sex every other day or every three days you should conceive as long as you don’t have trouble conceiving. When we were trying to get pregnant we had sex everyday for a month and that did the trick! :) Good luck and best wishes to you!

Have sex every other day during your fertile period (which generally occurs after day 10 of your cycle). My best recommendation is an ovulation prediction kit. You can buy a kit with 7 or 20 test strips. It detects your LH surge which occurs 24-36 hours before you ovulate. You can also check your cervical mucous. It thins out and has the consistency of egg whites before you ovulate. Good luck to you!

Some women can feel slight cramping when they ovulate... this happens to me about a week and a half before I menstruate and my hormones also tell me something is happening!
Pay close attention to your body between periods, discharge patterns and strange sensations can tell you a lot!
