Make a Baby

Days 10-13: If you have a typical 28-day cycle, you're most likely to ovulate around day 13 or 14, during the ovulatory phase, says Nancy Klein, MD, a reproductive endocrinologist at Seattle Reproductive Medicine in Washington. If your cycle doesn't average 28 days, your most fertile time is probably about two weeks plus three to four days before your next period. If you have 35-day cycles, for example, that would be days 18, 19, 20, and 21. In any case, you should have sex every other day during your fertile window. "Sperm can reside in cervical mucus for several days, so you don't have to be that precise," says Dr. Klein. An egg, on the other hand, is viable for less than 24 hours, so it's important to have the sperm on board before ovulation occurs.
