Statistics... 25-30% a month....

I'm just wondering if this statistics are based on you not using any birth control or if it's based on when you are actively ttc (charting ect)?
Does the percentage go higher if you know exactly when you ovulated?

  • It based on people JUST having unprotected intercourse. Just like "infertility" is looked into for most couples if they've simply been having unprotected intercourse for a year without concieving.

    BOTH of those things are why MANY MANY MANY fertility specialist are now require 3-4 months of charting cervical mucus and BBT TOGETHER before they will consider treating.

    Many women still believe the FALSE idea that most women ovulate on the 14th day of the cycle. Many women are still using the INACCURATE calulators online to "find out" when they ovulate.

    Charting DEFINATELY increases your chances of concieving.

    4 months of FULLY charting is considered the same as a year of just unprotected sex by many charting experts and MANY doctors will begin testing if you haven't concieved during those 4 months if you have good charts to prove it.

  • I think from what i read, it is 25% from like ages 15-25 is with out the use of birth control but doesn't mean you are trying to convieve. just gives you your chances of what can happen with out birth control.
