Ovulation To Conception


Can one have sex on ovulation day, and still miss the egg to get the woman pregnant. If so, what are the natural remedies?


Yes, you can easily miss the egg if you have sex on ovulation day. The process from ovulation to conception is a complicated one because it's based about perfect timing.

The egg, once it's released by the ovary, stays viable for only 12 hours, so your window of opportunity is really small.

The best time to have sex in order to get the woman pregnant is 24-48 hours before the egg is released by the ovary. Since this time is not as easy to predict, the woman can use ovulation OPK test strips.

Ovulation Urine Test Strips help predict ovulation, giving you 24-48 hours’ notice in advance about ovulation. The ovulation urine test strips measure the surge of the luteinizing hormone called “LH surge.” This sharp increase on LH indicates that ovulation is imminent and that it’s time to have sex.

The LH testing is a reliable way to detect ovulation in women with a regular cycle.
Ovulation may happen at different days each month, so you cannot assume that ovulation constantly occurs at the same time. Therefore, you should test again during each cycle.

The best time to begin having sex is on the first day that the women has a positive
OPK test and continue until it becomes negative. Measure the LH hormone in the urine each day at the same time starting from day 10 of the menstrual cycle. If you have a 28-day cycle, start testing on day 10 and carry on for six days. Learm more on using ovulation kits...

In order to achieve pregnancy, the woman has to have lots of fertile cervical mucus. Fertile cervical mucus looks like raw egg white and it is important to keep the sperm alive and healthy inside the female reproductive tract while waiting for the egg to be released.

The trick is to have sex 24-48 hours prior to the release of the egg provided that the woman has lots of fertile cervical mucus. If this mucus is not present, it is possible to increase its quality and quantity by supplanting with FertileCM or by using Pre-seed during sex.
