I’m trying to get pregnant naturally and to calculate my fertile days but I don’t know at which time of the menstrual cycle the egg is released into your tubes?05/12/2020 at 8:59 am
the menstrual cycle of a woman consists of 5 cases in which the ovulation occurs in the middle of the cycle during the ovulation phase which is supposed to be on the 14th day in 28-days cycles.
Usually, in each menstrual cycle, a single mature egg is expelled into one of the fallopian tubes. The egg that is now in the fallopian tube will remain to wait for a sperm that can fertilize it if there has been sexual intercourse. If this does not happen within 24 hours of ovulation, the egg will age and can no longer be fertilized. In order to get an in-depth understanding of what happens during your menstrual cycle I recommend you read this post: The Different Phases of the Menstrual Cycle.
There are also lots of online fertility calculators that help you determine at which day it is best to have sexual relationships.
Hope this helps,
all the best.06/01/2020 at 6:03 pm
Thanks your your reply, really interesting post. My problem is I have long menstrual cycles and I do not bleed every month so I absolutely have no idea how to know when I’m fertile.06/03/2020 at 3:15 pm
while women with regular periods may have it a little bit easier to calculate their fertile days, women with irregular periods have a harder time figuring out their pregnancy chances in each cycle while they are more likely to be anovulatory as well.
This is why it is recommended to look for your mucus. If your mucus is clear and sticky in the middle of your cycle, chances are that you’re probably ovulating. Read more here: Use of Cervical Mucus as a Fertility Indicator.
Another method would be tracking your basal body temperature thermometer. When ovulation occurs, the progesterone makes your body temperature increase. Last but not least, there are also ovulation predictor kits with which you can test your urine to figure out your fertile days.
Should all of the above-mentioned methods fail, we suggest looking for a fertility specialist in order to determine the underlying cause and a subsequent solution for your fertility problems.
Hope I could answer your question.
