If you want to get pregnant, make sure you DO NOT:
If your menstrual cycle is 28 days and your period comes like clockwork, chances are you will ovulate on day 14. This is halfway through your cycle. Your fertile window begins on day 10. You are more likely to get pregnant if you have sex at least every other day between days 10 and 14 of a 28-day cycle.
How likely am I to get pregnant by having intercourse on the last day of my period? It’s possible to get pregnant any time you have unprotected sex, regardless of what day it is in your cycle. Sperm can live in a woman’s reproductive tract for about six days, so it’s always best to use protection.
You may have ovulation irregularities, structural problems in the reproductive system, a low sperm count, or an underlying medical problem. Or maybe you just haven't tried long enough. While infertility can have symptoms like irregular periods or severe menstrual cramps, most causes of infertility are silent.
Most couples (about 84 out of every 100) will get pregnant within a year if they have regular sex and don’t use contraception. But women become less fertile as they get older. One study found that among couples having regular unprotected sex: aged 19 to 26 – 92% will conceive after 1 year and 98% after 2 years.
Vaginal intercourse is the most common way women become pregnant. Pregnancies can also be started with medical procedures such as donor insemination and in vitro fertilization â which can be done without any kind of sex. Pregnancy can occur whenever sperm enters the vagina.
How many days after ovulation is it possible to get pregnant? Pregnancy is possible 12–24 hours after ovulation. This is because the released egg can only survive 24 hours before the sperm can no longer fertilize it.
Despite its early appearance in the process, it takes some time for your body to build up enough hCG to register on a pregnancy test. Typically, it takes about three to four weeks from the first day of your last period before there’s enough hCG in your body for a positive pregnancy test.

One-night stands and pregnancy STDs and STIs are not the only unfortunate consequence of having casual sex. Unplanned pregnancies also can occur after hook-ups.
Yes, although it’s not very likely. If you have sex without using contraception, you can conceive (get pregnant) at any time during your menstrual cycle, even during or just after your period.
Although ovulation is a one-day occurrence each month, don’t think you can only get pregnant one day out of the month. Conception can occur within a six-day window, the five days leading up to ovulation and the day of ovulation.
