Me and my husband have been trying to conceive from last 2 and half years. Both of our tests has been done.. I am not having any hormonal problems or any problem related to that by God's grace neither does he. But still we are not able to conceive. Me periods was irregular before but now its alright. Doctor has been doing folicular scanning and also gave some medicine for rupturing the eggs. but still nothing is happening. Is it must that we should have sex the entire week of ovulation? We are not able to do that. I am not sure if that is the problem.

Doctor Answers (1) on Conceiving

Sharath Kumar K N Mandya | General Physician
Hello,, Sperm can survive a maximum of five days in fertile cervical fluid and your ovum can survive for up to one day. Your theoretical fertile window is thus six days long, comprised of the five days before ovulation and the day of ovulation. You only have a chance to conceive when you have intercourse on these days. This means that pregnancy is technically possible from intercourse on any of these six days. The likelihood of actually becoming pregnant, however, is dramatically increased when you have intercourse in the three days immediately leading up to and including ovulation. This makes a practical fertile window of just three days. couples with normal fertility and no known sperm issues shouldnot reduce the frequency of intercourse in the fertile window. Your probability of conception is increased when you have intercourse multiple times in your fertile window. Since you are taking medication for follicular rupture, your doctor can be able to tell approximate time of ovulation, and workup on that.
