1-2 days.: The egg lives for 1-2 days after release during ovulation, so conception must occur during that period. Remember that the sperm can live up to 5 days in the female genital tract, so intercourse before ovulation can also result in conception (-5 to +2 days from ovulation date is your fertile week each cycle - of course ovulation can vary in timing, which is why ovulation prediction kits help). ...Read more
Easy: Ovulation is when the ovary releases the egg. Conception is when the fertilized egg is implanted. After the egg is released, it has to get into the tube and reach the uterus. During that time it also has to meet up with the sperm so that it can get fertilized. The time this takes can also vary based on where the egg meets up with the sperm. ...Read more
Cervical mucus: The color, thickness, and all characteristics of mucus produced by the cervix changes, due to the changing hormonal environment, throughout your cycle.

If I don't take the conception pill at the same time everyday, what is the possibility that i'll ovulate?
Chance is low: It is best to take the birth control pill at about the same time each day. If the timing is off by some hours the chance of ovulation is very low. If a pill is 12-24 hrs late there is a small chance of ovulation. The chance increases if the pill is 1 or 2 or 3 days late. Take the pill at about the same time to be most effective, but don't worry if some hours off. ...Read more

4 days past ovulation and body basal temperature is 99.0. If conception occurs what is the body basal temperature needs to be at.
BBT: Basal body temperature needs to be charted for you as an individual. Take your BBT each morning throughout your cycle to detect the natural rise in your basal body temperature that occurs just after ovulation. This increase in your BBT is due to the hormone progesterone. One isolated temperature alone will not give you that information. ...Read more
What do you know?: "What you know" will give you the answer. For example, if a woman knows her LMP (the start of her last period) and she knows she ovulates later than 2 weeks after that, then her estimated date of conception will be more than 2 weeks after her LMP. If she knows her ovulation date but not her LMP, then yes we simply label whatever day is 2 weeks before her ovulation as the start of her pregnancy. ...Read more

Shorter luteal phase: If you're ovulating on day 21 of a 33 day cycle, the second half of your cycle - the luteal phase, which starts with ovulation and lasts until your next period or pregnancy - is a little shorter than normal.
