How to conceive a baby after period

You are most likely to conceive if you have sex one or two days before you ovulate (NCCWCH 2013:68, Lynch et al 2006, Germano and Jennings 2006).
The more irregular your periods are, the more difficult it can be to work out when you're fertile.

On average, a woman gets her period between 12 days and 14 days after she's ovulated (Fehring et al 2006). If your menstrual cycle is different from one month to the next, your fertile window may also vary by about a week between each period.
However, if your periods are irregular or are more than 36 days apart, it is worth seeing your GP. These conditions could affect your chances of conceiving, so it is better to get help sooner rather than later (NCCWCH 2013:68).


A long cycle could mean that you won't ovulate until two weeks after your period has ended.
Signs that you are approaching ovulation can start around three weeks before you expect your next period.
