  • It took me over 3 years.
    And yes, you can get pregnant on any day of your cycle. You are most likely to around ovulation and it's not very likely close to your period but your chances are never 0.

  • start 11th day after period continue counting until the 21st day ( a week plus the extra 3 days)
    have sex every other day ( the sperm will stay alive dont worry also increases chances of conceiving..

    another trick that works and i dont know how.. mix a Tbsp of honey w/ a small amount of cinnamon rub onto gums of mouth let absorb 2 x's a day during ovulation. I promise it works. Dont do it after concieveing though. If you dont like the gritty feeling drink hot tea with triple amount of honey and a tad more cinnamon.. use honey as substitute for sugar.

    another thing it is nearly impossibly to get pregnant during menstration for the simple fact the egg has left the body hence the blood.. there is nothing for the sperm to hold onto plus sperm can only live 3-5 days.. and needs a egg that is waiting NOT A DEAD ONE

  • It took us 11 months with almost perfect timing.
    As far as when you can get pregnant, it depends on the woman.. and how long their cycle is. It's only anout 14 days if you have a regular period every 28 days... if it's longer or shorter then the day will be different. Lets say you have a 35 day cycle, then you probably will ovulate around the 21st day.... and if you have a 25 day cycle you would ovulate around day 11... in either case, you would miss ovulation if you waited until day 14!
