Can't say: Terms like 'peak fertility' and 'high fertility' are misleading because women are not really 'fertile' for 3-or-4 days. Intercourse 1-2 days before ovulation and the day of ovulation is often successful because of how long the sperm stay alive and active, not because the woman is really fertile all those days.
