FERTILE: Ovulation is both a process and an event. To impregnate an egg the sperm must swim from the vagina through the cervix out the fallopian tube and then find an egg that is freshly expressed from the ovary. So, the five days prior to the event of ovulation are the five most likely days in your cycle that you could get pregnant. Every female must know this simple fact.
