High: The chance of getting pregnant during any particular ovulation is around 40%, assuming ideal conditions. That decreases as you get older.

Ovulation.: The best time to work on getting pregnant is around ovulation. Ovulation is mid- cycle, so it will vary depending on the length of your cycle. See an ovulation predictor chart or try using an ovulation predictor kit to hit spot on.

There's 1 more step: Yes, the time of ovulation is within the window of peak fertility. Unprotected sex (or artificial insemination) at the time of ovulation bears with it a chance of pregnancy if both partners are otherwise fertile, which most people are.
