Dear Sista

It may be possible since this is around about the ovulatory phase of your cycle. However, should you be suffering from a fertility problem, this may be due to a shortened proliferative phase (that is the build up phase from the last menstrual cycle to the next ovulation). Ideally a proliferative phase should be at least 12 days, so as to give the lining sufficient time to develop properly.
