Huh?: Do you mean to ask what are the methods by which artificial insemination can occur? If that's your question, then sperm can be injected into the uterus with a catheter. An egg can be collected from the ovary and combined with a sperm in a dish, an embryo made and then an embryo implanted back in the uterus. I don't think anyone would say these were the 'best' ways to get pregnant though.

+ day of ovulation: The day before ovulation and the day you ovulate are the best days. Also have sex 2-3 times a week during the rest of the cycle, before and after you ovulate - this covers you if you ovulate earlier or later than usual and helps 'keep his sperm sample fresh'.

Ovulation: Right before, right after and during ovulation. Use an ovulation predictor calendar to determine when you will be ovulating. Good luck.

How to get pregnant? What is the best time to have sex for pregnancy

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Martin Raff
Infectious Disease 56 years experience
Ovulation: Ovulation occurs roughly two weeks after your menstrual period. Many women experience pain (mittleschmerz) at this time. Sperm will presumably have a better chance of finding their target during this time. There is some evidence to suggest, however, that the anxiety about becoming pregnant may in some way diminish the chances. Just relax and enjoy frequent contact.
