The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
Day 14-15: Counting the first day of menstrual flow as day 1, most women with regular cycles ovulate on day 14-15. Irregular cycles are much tougher to time prospectively. Best solution is to consider fertility medications to help regulate cycles, using ultrasound to time ovulation. Shorter cycles can indicate problems with ovarian reserve or with the uterus, and should be discussed with an expert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A rough guide: If you have periods that are very regular and your menstrual cycle is always 28days, then you would ovulate on day 14 counting the first day of your period as day 1. The egg lives about 1 day and sperm can survive for 3 to 5 days. Therefore you could get pregnant on days 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Of course this pertains to a perfectly and consistently regular menstrual cycle. Check with your gyn. ...Read more

The other issue that is playing a role is reproductive age. It gets more difficult to get pregnant as we age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
