  • Basically, you ovulate mid cycle. Day 1 is the first day of your period. A woman's cycle usually runs about 28-35 days long. You will ovulate mid cycle. So you have to count-then have sex from day 12 to day 20, atleast every other day to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Then, when you get to day 28 or so, you'll be getting ready to start period again.

  • have sex from the 12th to the 16th and you have higher chances of conceiving... but honestly everyone has different cycles, the only was to truely tell when you've ovulated is to take your temperature when you wake up before you get out of bed... after you ovulate your temperature always goes up and stays up until your period

  • Buty at any drugstore, a BASIL THERMOMETER,or OVALATION KIT-- you will know exactly when you can get pregnant
