Why Are Some People More Fertile Than Others
I got a +OPK on CD's 16 and 17, accompanied by all the other fertile signs. My BBT did not spike until CD 23. Today is CD 36...How soon should I test?
After missing period: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Am trying for a baby is everyday better for intercourse or every other day my cycle is 29 days when is fertile for me?
Every Other Day: Your most likely ovulate on day 14-15 of your cycle. However, using an LH kit would help pinpoint that a bit better. Having intercourse every other day is sufficient. It gives the body time to replenish to sperm supply. Additionally, sperm can live for 48 hours outside of the body. Having intercourse a day or 2 prior to ovulation is actually better at increasing your chances of pregnancy. ...Read more
