Afternoon, I want to ask about the fertility period.
Hello, Tita Dewanty, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The fertile period is the period when the body is best prepared for the meeting of the sperm and the egg. The fertile period occurs around the time of ovulation, about 5 days before ovulation (release of an egg from the ovary). To estimate when the fertile period will come, it can be done in several ways, namely:
1. Calculate with the menstrual calendar
2. Look for signs of onset of fertility, such as: increased basal body temperature, a feeling of more arousal, mucus from the cervix, mild pain in the stomach / back
3. Using an ovulation predictor that analyzes urine. This tool can be purchased at a pharmacy without a doctor's prescription.
For the method of calculating the menstrual calendar, you must know in advance how many days your menstrual cycle is. The menstrual cycle starts from the first day of menstruation until the first day of the next menstruation. Normally between 21-35 days. If your menstrual cycle is 28 days long and regular, then your fertile period comes between day 10 and day 17 after the first day of your last menstrual period. However, if your menstrual cycle is irregular, then use this method to calculate it:
1. Look at your menstrual records in the last 8 months, looking for the shortest menstrual cycle and your longest menstrual cycle.
2. After having the shortest menstrual cycle, subtract 18 from this number. For example, if your shortest menstrual cycle is 27 days, 27-18 = 9.
3.After getting the longest menstrual cycle, subtract 11. For example, the longest cycle is 30 days, then 30-11 = 19.
4. So, if your menstrual cycle is between 27 and 30 days, then your fertile period will be from day 9 to day 19 after your first period.
If you want to plan a pregnancy, you can try the methods above, or for more details and details, you can consult directly to a doctor or obstetrician. Also read the article "how to get pregnant quickly" for more information.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
