- At Home
You and your partner have made the decision. It's time to start "trying" to get pregnant. For best results, narrow down the day you ovulate--that is, the time you release an egg. An egg only spends a day seeking sperm with which to unite, and the day you ovulate is your most fertile. Three to five days before the egg's release is also a good time to try, as sperm can survive that long. Instead of avoiding those magical days in the middle of your cycle, embrace them, and each other.
