Ovulation : Assuming a typical 28-day cycle, most women ovulated 12 to 16 days after their first day of bleeding from their period. This is the fertile period of you are trying to become pregnant.

Ovulation : In a typical 28 day cycle, ovulation happens on day 14. To pinpoint the exact day, you can check ovulation predictor kits, starting testing daily on day 10 of your cycle. Intercourse on day of positive test and next day or two gives you the highest chance as this is your fertile window.

Maybe: Only you and your partner can determine when is the best time to concieve. Ideally, you should be up to date on your health screening (pap smear, immunizations), you should be taking a prenatal vitamin and i recommend preconceptional counseling visit with your ob/gyn prior to conception.

Ovulation: The best time to get pregnant is around ovulation time. For a 28 day cycle female, that is the 14th day of your cycle. There are ovulation kits that may better predict your specific ovulation day according to your cycle. The chances are highest for pregnancy if you have intercourse 1-2 days prior to ovulation day. All the best!

Ovulation: Shortly before/around ovulation, which is usually mid-cycle. The home opks are pretty reliable if you choose to use one; you can also subtract 14-16 days from your average cycle length and you'll be pretty close.
