Ovulation Calculator

We need some information

Trying to conceive (TTC)? Work out when you're most fertile and when is the best time to get pregnant, to increase your chances of getting pregnant with our easy-to-use ovulation calculator.

All you need to do is put in the first day of your last period. 

Then we need to know the average length of your menstrual cycle so we can calculate the window of time when you're most fertile. While the average cycle lasts 28 days, anything from 22 to 36 days is perfectly normal, so pop your number in and press 'submit'.

What does the calculator mean and when are your most fertile days?

The asterix show the day you're ovulating. And all those days that are ticked? That's when you're at your most fertile, so this is the best time to get pregnant.

The days shaded blue are the days your period is due – and a great tally for working out when it's time to take a pregnancy test.

Boost your chance of conceiving

Now you know when you're most fertile, make the ovulation calculator results work for you and figure out what you need to do to boost your chances of conceiving no matter where you are in your menstrual cycle - and to find out when is the best time to get pregnant in your cycle.

Your period’s due - week one

If you've got your period (when you were really hoping it wouldn't happen) stay positive. Just think, if you do conceive this month, this will be considered week one of your pregnancy.

But if you think there could be some bad habits that are stopping you getting pregnant, this is a great week to make those healthy resolutions, including taking folic acid, and sticking to them.

And if that period isn't showing up? While it's never great to obsess about the early signs of pregnancy and when to take a pregnancy test, being aware of them is a good idea.

You’re almost in your most fertile week - week two

Focusing on what you both eat in this week will help ensure you're on top form as you come into your most fertile time. Find out the foods that boost his sperm count and help your fertility.

Remember, that TTC sex shouldn't just be about that most fertile week. And if your heart's set on trying to get pregnant with a girl, there is a theory that conceiving before your fertile week could help.

You’re in your most fertile week - week three

You're most fertile so now's the perfect time to enjoy plenty of baby making sex - this is the best time to get pregnant.

And while, yes, you really want to get pregnant right now, remember you want a baby with him, so it's worth making sure TTC doesn't take over your relationship.

You’re just out of your most fertile week - week four

While trying to conceive is top of your agenda right now, keep in mind that your life isn't all about getting pregnant – and that you're not the only couple going through this. The 10 things you only know if you're trying to conceive should ring true.

That said, if you're needing an excuse to have a health overhaul, this could increase your chances of conceiving, too. If you've decided to take your basal temperature to use alongside the ovulation calculator, now's the time when you should be seeing a change.

    Pls I noticed dis spotting always instead of my normal mensuration, since I stopped breastfeeding my second baby, wat could be the cause, and can it prevent me from getting pregnant?

  • yourlordac - 27/10/2015 23:10

    I need some help right now. My partner and I had unprotected sex on the 7th, 8th, and 13th October. I usually have period cramps a week before I am due on, but I've had small cramps on one side of my body, which is odd for me. My period arrives around the 27th. I've also been feeling extremely tired. I've taken two pregnancy tests, but they've both said negative. Is it too early?

I had sex on the 27 of November, two days after my period ended, but I haven't had sex since. We used protection but I am not on the pill. Please help. What is he chance that I could be pregnant? I am 16 days late for my period and I am freaking out.

      Hi, the best advice would be to do a pregnancy test, and go to see your doctor.

    TESTIMONY ON HOW I GOT PREGNANT. I was married at 28 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children.
