Ever wondered when your chances of pregnancy are at their highest? The following information can help you determine the best time for conception, or the best time for extra protection.
Women are born with approximately 400,000 eggs in their ovaries. Every month several eggs mature and one is released from an ovary. All along, the uterus has been thickening to act as a nest for the egg to implant. If the egg is released and not fertilized (by sperm) within 12-48 hours, it dissolves. The uterus then sheds it’s thick lining 2 weeks later; this is your period.
Ovulation occurs when the matured egg is released from the ovary. It happens around 14 or 15 days from the first day of your last period. Once the egg is released it travels into the Fallopian tube and is able to be fertilized by a sperm. This is your most fertile time to become pregnant. If you have unprotected sex, pregnancy can occur. A pregnancy can happen anytime from 5 days before ovulation to 1 day afterwards.
Conception happens when a single sperm penetrates the egg. The egg and the sperm then merge into a single nucleus known as a “zygote”. It can take several days for a pregnancy to occur as the fertilized egg has to implant in the lining of the uterus. It is only after the zygote has implanted that the woman is considered pregnant.
