Sperm can stay alive inside if you for approx 5 days, the egg once released lives for 12-24 hours. So your most fertile 5 days leading up to & 1 day after ovulation. Ovulation occurs 14 days before your period starts. If trying for a baby it’s best to have sex every 2-3 days that way it covers all your basis and gives the best chance of falling

So that means fertile window only happens 14 days before the mestration and if the intercourse happened days after the mestration then that means it is not best time to gwt pregnant? Quite confused.

If you have a 28 day cycle you’d ovulate on day 14....that egg will stay alive for 12-24 hours. So best time to be having sex to give you every possible chance is between day 9-15. When counting your cycle you count from the first day of bleeding, if your period was to last 7 days having sex just 2 days after it finishes put you in that fertile window! Not everyone has a 28 day cycle or bleeds for 7 days (this is just an example), So you need to know how long your cycle is, to work out when you ovulate. Even having sex spot on doesn’t necessarily mean you will fall pregnant, there are lots of factors and processes your body does to produce a baby, but this time is the best time for trying. But as I said if you just have regular sex throughout the month (every 2 days) without the added pressure of trying to pinpoint ovulation, then you are covering a your bases.
