Fertility In The Menstrual Cycle
hello doc, I want to ask. For example, as the formula is set if on the 10th day and 21st day is our fertile period. Does this apply every month?
Thank you for the question.
Fertility is defined as the time when the most potential to cause pregnancy when having sexual intercourse, because at this time the possibility of the release of eggs that are mature and ready to be fertilized from the ovaries to the uterus (or also called the ovulation process) occurs. In women with normal and regular menstrual schedules, this fertile period is predicted to occur around 14 days before the expected day of your next menstruation. It's just that, in women with abnormal and / or irregular periods, often fertility can not be predicted as easily as that. But with special calculations through the observation of the menstrual cycle during the last 6-9 months, or also by monitoring cervical mucus and basal body temperature changes.
The fertile period is often in the form of a certain period of time, for example between the 10th day to the 21st day of the menstrual cycle, so it's not just 2 days (10th day and 21st day). If this is true your fertile period is obtained from the correct calculation, then this can continue for at least the next 3-6 months. But in the future, if your menstrual patterns change again, then you need to recalculate these fertile forecasts to be more accurate.
It should be understood, that even though the most fertile period has the potential to cause pregnancy, it does not mean you are not likely to have results when having sex at other times. Therefore, in women with irregular menstrual patterns and are planning a pregnancy, it is advisable to have sex regularly every 1-3 days, except when menstruating.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult with your doctor or obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
