How do you conceive: Well, it is not so difficult for one to understand. It is about a woman’s body and one should know about it. Every month ovary produces an egg and releases it. Then the egg enters the Fallopian tube and stays for the next 24 hours. Within these 24 hours if it meets a sperm it gets fertile or else it breaks in the uterus.
When do you conceive: An egg survives for 24 hours and a sperm survives for 5 days in a woman’s body. It is important to have sperm in that 24 hours cycle if you want your egg to get fertilized. If the egg does not get fertile it breaks down and there is no chance of getting pregnant for that month until the next egg will release. So, if you are trying for pregnancy then you should start tracking your ovulation period. You can ensure about your pregnancy by female fertility test.
What is Ovulation: Usually women have period cycles of 28 days. 14 days just before the period starts is the ovulation day. It is the most possible time when you can get pregnant. Some women have 32 days period cycle, for those, 18 days before periods is the ovulation day. Now, when you know it, you can easily track your ovulation period.

If your periods are irregular for once or twice in a year then it is not a big thing to worry for. But if it is the case for every month then you must visit a private gynecologist as it can be a sign of PCOS.
