When is the best time to have sex for conception

Timing is everything. Sperm can live for three to five days, but the egg is around for only 12 to 24 hours. To increase the likelihood of conception, it’s important to have daily intercourse in the days leading to ovulation and on the day you ovulate. A good approach is to have sex one to two days before ovulation and again on the day you ovulate. That way, there’s more likely to be a healthy supply of sperm waiting in the fallopian tube when an egg is released.

Of course, exactly when a woman ovulates isn’t altogether clear. It depends in part on the length of your menstrual cycle. A woman typically ovulates about 14 days before her next period — not mid-cycle, as is commonly held. If you have a 28-day cycle, which is the average, then you would ovulate about halfway through your cycle. But if you have a 35-day cycle, you would ovulate around day 21, not day 17. (Day 1 is the first day of your period.)
