I have been trying to have a baby with no luck. Does anyone know how many days after your period you start to get your fertile cervical mucus. Cuz I heard that is what you need for the sperm to get where they need to go. ThanksJanuary 25, 2007 at 7:42 am #14715tylersgurl

Taken from American Pregnancy Association:
A woman’s monthly cycle is measured from the first day of her menstrual period until the first day of her next period. On average, a woman’s cycle normally is between 28-32 days, but some women may have much shorter cycles or much longer ones. Ovulation can be calculated by starting with the day the last menstrual period (LMP) starts or by calculating 12-16 days from the next expected period. Most women ovulate anywhere between Day 11 – Day 21 of their cycle, counting from the first day of the LMP. This is what many refer to as the "fertile time" of a woman’s cycle, because sexual intercourse during this time increases the chance of pregnancy. Ovulation can occur at various times during a cycle, and may occur on a different day each month.[/b][/b][/b]
[b]The Ovulation Cycle Divided into Two Parts:
The first part of the ovulation cycle is called the follicular phase. This phase starts the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) and continues until ovulation. This first half of the cycle can differ greatly for each woman lasting anywhere from 7 days until 40 days. The second half of the cycle is called the luteal phase and is from the day of ovulation until the next period begins. The luteal phase has a more precise timeline and usually is only 12-16 days from the day of ovulation. This ultimately means that the day of ovulation will determine how long your cycle is. This also means that outside factors like stress, illness, and disruption of normal routine can throw off your ovulation which then results in changing the time your period will come. So the old thought that stress can affect your period is only partly true. Stress can affect your ovulation which ultimately determines when your period will come, but stress around the time of an expected period will not make it late—it was already determined when it would come 12-16 days earlier![/b]January 25, 2007 at 9:32 am #14729JCarpenter1026
To all the ladies about the can I get pregant the day after my period or similar: I know this sound gross but excuse, I actually got pregnant the day before my last day of my period. Which in fact I had stopped long enough and then 4 hours later spotted. So yes you can get pregnant the day after the day before 3 days after ect…it depends when your body ovulates and not every woman ovulates on the same day every month. To be sure calculate from the last day of your period(which includes light spotting) and wait 4 weeks to be sure of the results. There always can be a false neg but never a false positive. And great advice for those trying to concieve and have ovulation down to a science: If you are trying you usually ovulate 14 days after your last day of your period. So when that 14 day mark hits, go at it like jack rabbits…..lol….Godbless ladies and I wish all the luck and best.
The part about 14 days after the last day of your period is when you should try, also if you want get an ova predictor from your local pharmacy. One more thing, ovulatioin contains cloudy discharge and a rise in your temp so if you do not ovulate 14 days after your period keep a close eye on your discharge and your temp. Good luck and I hope my advice helps.December 6, 2015 at 4:14 pm #29056kristine403December 6, 2015 at 4:17 pm #29057
