ANSWER #5 of 15

To know your cycle, it would take time. You need to observe your menstruation for a couple of months. Moreover, you need to have a chart which you fill in to make everything more organized and "really easier" to understand.

If you don't have a chart, you may forget your observations. Anyway, that would take only a couple of months recording your periods, etc. if you really wanna know your fertility period for whatever your purposes are.

I guess you just wanna apply natural method.

ANSWER #10 of 15

Count the first day of your period as "day 1". MOST women are most fertile between days 11-16, so use protection during those days if you don't want to get pregnant, as get down to business if you do!
A good book to read is "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" - it will help you narrow down your most fertile window.

how long can sperm survive out of the body??
ANSWER #12 of 15

It really depends upon your cycle. Most women have 28 days.

Few have short cycle which can only be "about" 18 days and then they will have menstruation again. Likewise, other women have long cycle which is "about" 48 days which is one of the causes why some women don't have menstruation in a particular month every now and then.

Your fertile period is the time during which having sexual intercourse could lead to a pregnancy. Begin counting on the first day of your menstrual period. Women normally ovulate about 14 days from the first day of their period, although this varies considerably from woman to woman. Your fertile period starts about 4-5 days before ovulation, and ends about 24-48 hours after it. This is because sperm can live in your body for approximately 4 to 7 days, and the egg can live for 24 to 48 hours after being released. You are most fertile on the days before ovulation and the day of ovulation. Knowing your fertile days can help you increase your chances of getting pregnant, as well as avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

It's clearly important to keep track of the start of your menstrual periods. But it is also helpful to know exactly when, and if, you ovulate, rather than simply rely on the 14-day rule. An easy, although somewhat costly method is to use a do-it-yourself ovulation kit, available over the counter, which enables you to predict your ovulation by measuring the LH surge in an early morning urine sample. This method uses a specially designed dipstick that changes color when the levels of LH increase. When your LH surges it is likely that ovulation will occur in the next 24-36 hours, so it is advisable to have intercourse during this time.

Many women chart their basal body temperatures in order to get a better fix on their fertile periods. When you are ovulating, your basal body temperature should rise for a few days. Your peak fertile period occurs on the days just before this rise. If you are a good record-keeper, you may want to consider this method.

Yet another method for checking your fertile period is to check for changes in your cervical mucus, as well as changes in the feel, shape and position of your cervix. About three to five days before ovulation, as estrogen levels rise, the cervical mucus becomes clear and stretchy and the amount increases. This fertile mucus turns the vaginal fluids alkaline, which helps keep sperm alive and nourished and allows healthy sperm to travel forward. The position, feel, and shape of your cervix also changes to allow for the easy passage of sperm.

If you want to learn more about the Basal Body Temperature method and the Cervical Mucus and Position method for tracking your ovulations, websites such as explain these methods in more detail.

I found the above info in net. Now, per experience and others' , I think that "3 days after " menstruation (presuming yours is regular) is safe period. That's day 4, 5, and 6 (your menstruation is day 1,2 and 3).

Three days before menstruation is also safe. Many haven't got pregnant. But you see, it would only be easy to calculate that "3 days before" if your cycle is regular. If it is not regular, it would be risky.

Now, to conclude, you need to familiarize with your cycle first whether you belong to the short, "usual" or long cycle whatever else you call them.:) You need to know first if your menstruation is regular or not before you can determine your fertility period.

Ask for more info from your doc or research in the net. Certainly, you don't wanna have margin for error...until you wanna have another child again or it's just God's will that you should have a child again. God bless...
