is only available for fertilization for about a 12-24 hour window each
month – this is known as ovulation. Predicting ovulation can help you to

If a female engages in intercourse around the time that she is ovulating,
she is more likely to get pregnant. Therefore, if a couple is having
unprotected intercourse, they should be most “careful” during the 5
days leading up to ovulation and the 1 day (24 hours) after it. This is

a woman does not ovulate for another 4 days after having sex, there could
still be sperm living inside of her that can fertilize the egg when it is
