It is more likely that you will become pregnant after your period, but you can also become pregnant before your period, depending on your ovulation cycle. Because everyone is made differently, our cycles can vary from one woman to the next and it may be difficult to determine exactly when a woman is ovulating.

Most women have a 28 day cycle meaning that they ovulate 14 days following the last day of their menstrual cycle. However, this can be much longer of shorter than this timeframe depending on the woman.

In order to find the best time to become pregnant, it is best to keep track of your personal ovulation cycle.

You can do this by keeping track of your basal temperature readings or by using an ovulation predictor kit. Both of these items are easy to use and you will be able to find much information about them online.
