Fertility window are the days in your menstrual cycle during which you’re most likely to get pregnant.Calculating your monthly fertility window is a sure fire way to help you know when to have or avoid sex.

First of all, you need to understand your menstrual cycle. Your menstrual cycle begins on the first day of your period and starts over when your next period begins. A typical menstrual cycle is 28 days, some are between 21 to 30 days. Ovulation happens halfway through your circle, one of your ovaries(or both)releases a mature egg or multiple eggs. This egg goes to one of your fallopian tubes, where it waits to be fertilized by a sperm. When it is fertilized, it prepares for implantation. If you don’t get pregnant after having unprotected sex during your fertile windows, it means the egg wasn't fertilized.  In this case, your body prepares for your period. Your ovulation is key to knowing your fertility window. These are ways to know when you are fertile.

 

CALENDAR METHOD

Each month, mark the first day of your period on a calendar or in a period-tracking app like CICLE. Count the number of days between the first day of your last period and first day of your period—the number you get is the the length of your monthly circle. Ovulation occurs 12 to 14 days before the start of your next cycle. Your fertile window is the five days leading up to ovulation, plus the day of ovulation and the day after ovulation — so, that is seven days in total. The length of your period might change each month if you have irregular period, so this method might not be accurate for you.

 

OVULATION PREDICTOR TEST

Ovulation predictor test helps predict your ovulation. This test might come in handy if you are unsure about your cycle or if you have irregular periods. What this test does is check your urine for luteinizing. If the test is positive, it means ovulation will occur within 24 hours, which means— you are fertile.
