Ovulation
Hi there

This may sound like a stupid question, but one I really need an answer for. I know that ovulation occurs on day 14 if you have a 28 day cycle and I know that an egg is released. My question is that should I have sex on Day 14 when the egg is released is this the day a person is most fertile and is this the day one can succeed in falling pregnant. The reason I ask is that my husband and I are trying for a baby and are a bit confused as to when exactly you can fall pregnant and when you cannot.

Thanks

The egg and sperm survive for a few days, so between Day 12 - 16 wuld be the best time to try.
