Ovulation occurs…

when the egg from the female is released from the ovary, is drawn into the fallopian tube, and is then ready for fertilization by the sperm from the male. In preparation for fertilization, the lining of the uterus has thickened so the egg, if fertilized, can implant and the newly conceived baby can grow to full development. If conception does not occur, the egg is passed through the body, and the lining of the uterus is shed, causing the monthly menstrual flow.

A normal cycle range looks something like this:

  • Menstrual flow: 1-5 days
  • Dry days (very little cervical mucus): days 6-11
  • Fertile days (increase and changes in cervical mucus): days 12-18
  • Less fertile days: days 19-32

So counting the first day of your menstrual period as Day 1, the most fertile time to conceive a baby is between days 12 and 18. But be aware that many factors can both influence fertility or make fertility less likely. Medication, illness, stress all play a part as well. Also remember that sperm can live inside a woman’s body for up to 7 days, so even if you have had sexual relations before what you thought were your fertile days, you could still get pregnant!

The mucus changes are very important to note as it is the mucus that provides nourishment and protection as well as a ‘travel agent’ for the sperm to travel from the vagina up through the cervix so that the egg can be fertilized while still in the fallopian tube. It is the clear and slippery mucus that is generally the sign that announces your fertile days.

So whether you are trying to achieve pregnancy, or avoid pregnancy, it will help to keep track of your menstrual cycles and all mucus changes.

Did you know that ovulation is not always suppressed by contraceptives?
