Ovulation: Occurs on only one day, it is the moment when the egg (oocyte) is released from the ovarian follicle. Doctors and patients both talk about the 'peri-ovulatory period' which can be several days before and following ovulation. The best answe rfor you - can you get pregant? - depends on how you are deciding when ovulation is.

Everything as usual: Make sure you are doing more for your oral hygiene, and stay up on your dental work so that you do not have avoidable dental concerns along the way. A good cleaning is important to get you started. Congrats with the new baby.

Ovulation: Yes. Women with regular menstrual cycles, will ovulate within 24 - 48 hours after the OPK is positive. This is your most fertile period. You may see symptoms that confirm ovulation such as change in cervical mucus, some discomfort . If the egg isn't fertilized, you will typically have your menstrual cycle 12 - 14 days after ovulation.

Can I get pregnant on the first and second day of ovulation. What are my chances?

Medium high: Having sex on or near one's estimated ovulation date is a fairly good way to get pregnant. That's how people usually get pregnant. If the next normal, regular period does not come (is a week late), then one can do a urine pregnancy test at that time to see if there is a baby on the way (be sure to be married, settled down, and with stable jobs providing health insurance).

The most important thing to consider is whether this is the right time for you to commit to caring and being responsible for a child's wellbeing. Being married or"settled down" is one of many ways to raise a healthy, happy, confident child.
