Ovulation Calculations

by Kitty Barker

There are two systems used in calculating when a women is about to ovulate. The American System which dates back to early times and the Ovulation System. The Ovulation Calculator is the most accepted and considered the most accurate. The accuracy of this method of course will depend on you. The Ovulation Calculator often helps determine when it is a good time to have sex if you are wanting to conceive in order to have a baby. The most effective way is when a woman becomes fertile.

The simple method is the best method. It is predicted that about 50% of couples conceive during their first three months. The first six months about 75% of couples conceive. Within the first year it is predicted that about 90% of couples conceive giving birth to a beautiful baby. The ovulation calculator for married couples is essential in planning a family. Family planning is vital to most couples because of today’s economy and the fact that both mom and dad work leaving little time for a large family.

The average family of today normally consists of two children and the parents. Spacing the child births at least two or three years apart. The mom can then have time to enjoy both babies regain her health and of course increase the family income. The dad has time to improve his career farther making it easier to support his family. Most responsible couples prefer using the ovulation calculator in order to help them with this important event. The event of having a new life added to the family is one of the most important part of life. Most couples are very anxious about having a baby represents the future of their own family links. Dads usually want a boy so they can have a son that is like him who perhaps will be a great person. A women often prefers the daughter so she can be a little lady that mamma can watch grow to a beautiful young lady. The ironic thing is that the boy normally clings to his mother while the girl becomes daddy’s little girl. Both parents usually love both children and are proud of each child as they grow into adulthood.

In order to better understand how a ovulation calculator works the following example will show you.

  • 10/01/06 First day of your cycle
  • 10/12/06 A little bit fertile
  • 10/13/06 Fertile
  • 10/14/06 Very fertile
  • 10/15/06 Time to ovulate
  • *A home pregnancy test may work now.
  • 10/29/06 End of cycle
  • 11/01/06 No period? Maybe you are pregnant!
  • 07/08/07 If you are pregnant, this is the approximate due date.

I know this seems very easy after you have seen the above demonstration; however, it is not always so simple. It does not always work the first time you use it. You will need to repeat the procedure the following month and hopefully you will have success. Do not dismay some couples have had to use the Ovulation Calculator system for six months to year before conception. Remember about 90% of couples normally do conceive within a year. I do suggest that if you are not able to conceive within the first three months to see your doctor for a physical exam to make sure both mom and dad are in good health.

The fact is the average couple who have sex once a day has the best chance of getting pregnant within the first month. It does help to follow the ovulation calendar especially for a couple that is very active. A lot of couples today both work some even travel as part of the work requirements which leaves them with no valuable time to be together. It is often only certain evenings or days that they are able to relax for this reason a couple should keep the ovulation calendar to help set aside special day to be together. It is recommended that after your partner ejaculates to lay on your back with your hips elevated for 20-30 minutes. You may see your doctor for more information. Enjoy each other and your times together you should conceive and I believe it will be a welcome event.
