The Best Time to Get Pregnant During Ovulation

When a woman is ovulating, any moment around this time works well for her to try to get pregnant. The very best time to have sexual relations is a few days before ovulation, says infertility physician Shahin Ghadir, a reproductive endocrinologist with Southern California Reproductive Center. “Most people ovulate about 14 days into a normal 28-day cycle, but starting to conceive a little before ovulation is better, because sperm has a tendency to last longer than the egg does,” Ghadir says.
