Will you tell your daughter the truth?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
About sex?

My parents told me that you can get pregnant after having sex one time. Although that is true the truth is you will only have a 24 hour window to actually get pregnant once a month. So what about all the other days in the month?

Will you tell your daughter the truth about a women's body and that actually knowing your cycles and knowing about that window? I honestly didn't learn about that until after my kids were born.

I want to tell my daughter the complete truth so she is truly aware of her own body. And maybe even plan accordingly before she has sex and avoid those certain days.


What is the fertile window?

The fertile window is made up of the days in the menstrual cycle where pregnancy is possible. The length of the fertile window has been determined by documenting the farthest away from ovulation that intercourse can result in conception. To determine the length of the fertile window and the probability of pregnancy relative to ovulation we need to know the maximum lifespan of the male sperm in the female reproductive tract. While the human ovum has a lifespan that is likely not more than 24 hours, making conception highly unlikely after the day of ovulation, the lifespan of the sperm is potentially longer and more variable.


I'm so surprised by how many women in here actually don't know the true facts of there own body. It's really sad.

Either did mine. She gave me a book to read, and said there ya go. I went years terrified that I had sex I could have gotten pregnant. I wish I was more educated with my own body. It's so sad lol but I want my dd to be prepared.

Quoting eesmommy:

Isn't it like 3-5 days you ovulate? (depending on your cycle)

Yeah. However the real truth is don't be having sex unless you're ready for the possible consequences. The science is fine but I don't want my kid having sex too young either.
