The best time to conceive is when you and your partner feel ready. Not too early and not too late. The earlier the better, but if you are younger than 35 years of age, it’s probably a good idea to wait until at least the first trimester has passed before trying for pregnancy. If you are older than 35 years of age or have had several miscarriages in the past, chances are that it might be best to wait one year before trying again. There is no way to know how many children you will end up having with any given pregnancy without taking into account all potential outcomes (e.g., miscarriage).
What can I do if my fertility problems prevent me from conceiving?
If your fertility problems prevent conception, don’t give up! Many couples successfully conceive after 1-2 attempts at timed intercourse (“TTC”). Some women find that patience pays off as they become more fertile later on in their childbearing years.
Can I still enjoy myself during my period?
