If you’re trying for a baby, it’s likely you’ve wondered when the best time to get pregnant is. It’s possible to conceive at any point in your menstrual cycle if you aren’t using birth control, including during your period. However, there are certain points in the month when you’re most fertile. This is aptly named your fertile window.
Your fertile window will differ depending on how long your cycle is and how regular your periods are. It’s sometimes described as your ovulation window. More on that below, but if you’re unsure how to keep track of where you’re at in your cycle, you can use a period tracker like Flo to help with that.
Here, two Flo board experts explain what happens during your fertile window, how likely you are to get pregnant throughout your menstrual cycle, and how you can boost your chances of conception.
