Knowing the days when you are most likely to be fertile can increase your chances of getting pregnant. The typical menstrual cycle is 28 days, but every woman is different. During each menstrual cycle, there are about 6 days during which you can get pregnant. This is called the fertility window. Use the calculator to see which days you are most likely to be fertile.
With the Ovulation Calculator tool, you can calculate your period and find out the days you have your period, it gives you the dates when your fertility is most likely in the next few months. Mark your ovulation calculation calendar! See the menstrual day calculation result.
How to calculate ovulation?
The ovulation calculator calculates fertile ovulation days by counting down 14 days from the first day of your last period. If your cycle lasts 28 days, your next period should start 28 days after the first day of your last period.
Your fertile window includes the day you ovulated and the previous five days, but keep in mind that you are much more likely to get pregnant in the last three days of this time frame.

Another way to predict ovulation is the cervical mucus method. Cervical mucus is a fluid produced by and released from the uterus. Hormones cause the texture, volume, and color of your cervical mucus to change during your menstrual cycle. It can be used to determine when you are most fertile.
Before you ovulate (when your ovary releases an egg), your mucus is thick, white, and dry. Just before ovulation, cervical mucus becomes clear and slippery. This consistency makes it easier for sperm to swim to meet an egg during ovulation. If you want to get pregnant, this type of discharge tells you that your fertile time has come.
Cervical mucus can tell you when you are fertile or likely to become pregnant.
