If you are reading this then chances are you may have been trying to get that bundle of joy in your arms for a while now. If that is the case, worry not. Many women are going through the same and you know what, there is hope.
Let’s delve in by understanding what exactly IVF is. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the fertilization of the ovum (woman’s egg) by the sperm (man’s seed) outside of the body. Once fertilized and ready, the ovum which is now an embryo is introduced to the woman’s womb for maturation to a fetus. This is an advanced technology that helps women who are not able to conceive naturally get pregnant.
The ivf fertility calculator portrays the most fertile dates in a woman’s menstrual cycle. During these days, the woman is most fertile and most likely to get pregnant if fertilization takes place.
We’ll look at a normal 28 day cycle. Day 1 is the first day of menstruation, thus the first day of the cycle. Menstruation continues for 2 to 7 days depending on different women. Between day 1 and day 10 fertility is very low and therefore not likely to get pregnant. The next 4 days are the most fertile in a woman’s cycle, the peak being day 14 when the ovum is released from the ovary to the fallopian tube for fertilization. IVF fertilization during these four days has a higher chance of success.
In the next 4 days, the egg’s viability dwindles and therefore fertilization may not happen.
The baseline here is for every woman who is trying for a baby through IVF to monitor her cycle duration. This way she will be able to almost accurately predict her fertile days or the day of ovulation, and then the IVF procedure can take place.
