Doctor :   i will tell you how you can calculate that
User :   ok
Doctor :   The most fertile period is that period in a woman's life when her chances of getting pregnant are the highest
Doctor :   To determine the fertile period of a woman it is necessary to study and analyze the menstruation cycle. It varies between 23 and 35 days among women and many classify the cycle into two parts, before ovulation and post ovulation. The first day of the period is called day one.
Doctor :   During day seven the ovum is getting ready for fertilization and during day seven to day eleven the uterine lining thickens getting ready for the implantation of the fertilized ovum. During day fourteen the ovum is released and it travels down the fallopian tubules.
Doctor :   If a sperm is waiting for it the ovum is fertilized and implants itself in the uterine lining resulting in pregnancy. The ovum has a life span of only about 12 to 24 hours. Sperm can survive up to 72 hours inside a woman
Doctor :   there fore
Doctor :   the women is most fertile 14 days before the onset of period.
