Doctor :  
The process of forming a foetus in your wife's womb will start when the sperm of your's and your wife ovum (egg) meet successfully
Doctor :  
and grow at the specified location in the Uterus
Doctor :  
Now the sperm will stay alive for 24 hours so is the egg that is released by the woman
Doctor :   The ovum is released by a female on one particular day
Doctor :  
that too once in a month
Doctor :  
That day is called ovulation date
Doctor :  
That is usually the mid day of the two menstrual cycles
Doctor :  
Let us say, the last menstrual period of your wife was on March 1st and lasted till Mar 3rd.
Doctor :  
and she has regular periods monthly right 28 day cycle
Doctor :  
the next menstrual period should start on Mar 28th / Mar 29th
Doctor :  
so the ovulation date is on Mar 14th
User :   Ok.. my wife stoped Mestrating on 10th Mar.. and she will be with me on 25th Mar so do you think
Doctor :  
I hope you understood the example
User :   Yes.. I do
User :   but from the date I just gave you what do you think
Doctor :  
Ok, now let me know what is your usual cycle
Doctor :  
wife's cycle*
Doctor :  
Is it 28 or 30 or 32 day cycle
User :   It's 28 I suppose
Doctor :  
then the likely day of ovulation is 24th Mar
User :   She stoped mastrating about 8th to 10th of March
Doctor :  
For this ovulation to be successful
User :   and we shall be today on 25th
Doctor :  
you have to regular intercourse from 20 th Mar to Mar 27th
User :   Is the Ovulation date one day only from all women
Doctor :  
Even if the ovulation takes place a day earlier or one day late you have the fair chance of meeting the ovum
User :   ok so lets say it is 3 days
User :   must be before of the exact date or after
User :   Well from the date I gave you .. do you think there is any chances for her to still be ovulation on 25th
Doctor :   The day can be between Mar 22nd to Mar 26th

Doctor :  
so you have to have intercourse from Mar 20th to Mar 27th
Doctor :  
so ask her to prepone her travel
User :   Thank you doctor
User :   That has been really useful information
Doctor :

Doctor :  
Ask your wife to start on Folic acid supplements
User :   However, are there any necessary information you may also pass along
Doctor :  
as you are planning for a succesful pregnancy
User :   Do I also need to be taking folic acid?

Doctor :

User :   sorry that is now two months that i have stoped
Doctor :   Very good

User :   So apart from the folic acid what else do i need to tell her
Doctor :  
Iron rich diet
User :   Another thing is is about the 28,30,32 days you said earlier on can you explain
User :   Or do I need to ask her
Doctor :   You can ask her
User :   I will do that but still can you exlain to me
Doctor :  
IF it is 30 day cyclel then the 15th day
Doctor :  
will be the ovulation date
User :   Oh now I get you..
Doctor :  
and if it is 32, then the 16 day is the ovulation date
User :   so its a must to have intercourse on the 14th,15th,16th day if shes on 30 day cycle right
Doctor :  
I would say from Day 12 to Day 17th
Doctor :  
3 days before to 3 days after
User :   Do female cycle change
Doctor :  
not usually
User :   Why i asked is because her period usually is 5 days to 6 days
User :   but her last one was 3 days and on the 4th it had stoped
User :   does she helps to determine her cycle
Doctor :  
Ovulation kits are available at pharmacies
Doctor :  
you can check the ovulation day
Doctor :  
by serial kits
User :   Ok
User :   Another thing I would like to ask is that does masturbation disturb sperm or in anyway affect baby making
Doctor :  
No not at all
User :   because i do and sometime i feel it reduces my sperm count
Doctor :  
You may stop masturbation two days before your wife arrives
Doctor :  
and your sperm fluid can increase
User :   I have stoped for 3 weeks now
Doctor :   Ok

User :   Ok. Thank you
User :   If I do have any more information that I need will return back to the site
