When am i most fertile? Is there an age when women tend to be more fertile? Also, when is the most fertile time of the month, right before your period?

Younger : Younger women are more fertile. Women are most fertile from the time soon after their first period (age 11-13) through their early to mid twenties. Fertility then gradually decreases into the 30's and severely in the early 40's. There have been cases of women getting pregnant into the late 40's naturally. The most fertile time of the month is right after ovulation (when the egg is released from the woman's ovary). This occurs in the middle of the cycle, approximately 14-17 days after the last period. If pregnancy doesn't occur, then the next period occurs predictably ~2 weeks after leading to the average 23-28 day menstrual cycle. ...Read more
