Pregnancy/Ovulation

Pregnancy occurs when a sperm meets an egg during a woman’s most fertile period when she is ovulating. A woman is the most fertile 24 hours prior to ovulation and 12 hours after ovulation. Since spermatozoa have a lifespan of a week, being sexually active around this ovulation time-frame increases the chances of pregnancy as it just takes one sperm cell to fertilize.

However, if a woman has just had her period, it takes on average around 14 days for the eggs to release leading up to ovulation. A woman is highly unlikely to get pregnant during this time period.
