In brief: Sex Ed

Ok lesson on how things work.
You are fertile or able to become pregnant when you ovulate about mid cycle, which is 11-14 days from when your period started. If you have sex around that time and the egg and sperm get together an imp late in your uterus then you are pregnant. You will know when you miss a period and u have a positive pregnancy test.
