Calendar method as a method of pregnancy planning

The basic principle of the calendar method and its features


During the menstrual cycle, the fertility of a woman changes. Its beginning is considered the first day of menstruation. For several days, when the menstruation itself lasts, and also a week after its completion, conception is unlikely. Many couples use the calendar method as a means of contraception and practice unprotected sex in these days.
Approximately in the middle of the cycle, egg maturation occurs. The moment of its release from the ovary is called ovulation. Getting into the uterus, the egg is fully prepared for fertilization. Conception is most likely during this period. A woman may also become pregnant if sexual intercourse occurred 3-4 days before ovulation or 4-5 days after it.

Calendar method and pregnancy planning


When planning pregnancy, you can use the calendar method to calculate the most favorable days for conception. For
This is primarily to calculate the date of onset of ovulation. If the cycle is regular, there should be no difficulty during the calculation. Ovulation occurs 12-16 days before the next menstruation. On average, this occurs 14 days before the start of the new cycle.
If the duration of the cycle is 28 days, the release of the egg from the ovary can be observed 14 days after the onset of the previous menstruation. It is necessary to highlight this day in the calendar, as well as 3-5 days before the estimated date and 5 days after it. The marked period will be most favorable for conception.
Couples wishing to have a child, it is necessary to make love at an opportune time. It is better if sex will occur every other day.
Despite the sufficient reliability of the calendar method, you should not exclude the possibility of becoming pregnant on any other day of the cycle. Especially you should not rely on him for those whose menstruation is irregular.
There are cases when during one cycle 2 eggs mature at different times.Anovulatory cycles also exist. They are characterized by a lack of ovulation. If this situation occurs only 1-2 times a year, it is considered the norm. If the maturation of the egg is not observed for 2-3 months in a row, it can be a sign of serious violations and even infertility.
Ovulation can be calculated not only using the calendar method. This moment can be more accurately tracked using daily basal temperature measurements, as well as using special tests.
