When You Are Trying to Conceive- Why Tracking Your Menstrual Cycle Can Be a Huge Help

By Published  Views 1 Comments

So, you have been trying to conceive. But for some godforsaken reason, it just isn’t happening. The cause could be anything- fertility problems, obesity, stress, etc.


While you can go overboard with worry or panic at not being successful in getting pregnant, I would like you to stop.

Take a breath. Realise- It could be many things, none of which is your fault.

Now that we got that out of the way let’s get back to how tracking your menstrual cycle can give you an idea on how to get pregnant.

Trace Your Best Days for Making a Baby

The menstruation period of a woman and the rest of the days of a month when she isn’t bleeding away is all a part of a cycle. Let’s call this a menstrual month.

Day 1 of this menstrual month is the first day when you get your period. The last day of your menstrual month is the one that precedes your next period’s beginning. Ovulation happens at a point when you are about two weeks away from your next five-day cycle.

Now, if your menstrual month is 28 days, ovulation is most likely to happen on the 14th day. By this rule, your most fertile time is the three days that lead up to the ovulation point- day 11, 12, and 13 in this case.

If you are trying to conceive, tips suggest a six-day window right before ovulation as good, while the closest three day window remains the best time.

Tracking Ovulation Doesn’t Solve Your Fertility Problems

It’s like fishing. Just because you spotted an area of water brimming with fishes, it doesn’t mean that you will learn the art in an hour. It only significantly improves the chances of you catching one.

A sperm has a long life inside the reproductive tract of a woman. It could last for as much as five days at times. Coitus during your most fertile days could, thus, enhance your chances of success at trying to conceive.

Other Things that you Can Do Besides Stalking Your Ovulation via Basic Math

Note your basal body temperature. Your hormones affect the lowest temperature that your body can reach in a day. This value drops by half degrees or so right before your eggs are to be released and goes back up after ovulation is over.

Basal body Temperature Charting- How Exactly Is It Accomplished

From predicting ovulation using urinary indications of hormonal changes to charting your temperature and such other factors can be determined using tailor-made kits.

A fertility monitor, an ovulation predictor kit, conception kits, and many such tools provide you with assistance. These help you by telling you when to try for a baby while you chase your good days of opportunity, seeking to conceive one.
