Pregnancy Table – Counting the Days

Pregnancy is only possible in the right fertile period ? So how to calculate the right days when we are fertile? The table to get pregnant can help a lot in this task. A basic requirement for the table to work when pregnant is that the woman’s cycle is at least somewhat regulated . The variation of days from one cycle to another should be at most only a few days, as ovulation would not vary so widely from one cycle to the next and the estimated fertile window margin would be reasonable for sexual intercourse.

The pregnancy chart consists of identifying fertile days using a simple account. We know that ovulation happens between the 12th and the 16th day before the next menstruation . This is because the luteal phase (post-ovulative) needs a few days to function and welcome a possible pregnancy if fertilization occurs by stimulating the progesterone and the corpus luteum .

How to Make the Fertile Table?

The chart starts to always get pregnant on the first day of the menstrual flow . The indicative of that start day is the day of live bleeding with flow, it is not considered a sludge or escape of pink blood as the first day of the cycle. From that day on, you should fill in the leaflet or calendar with the days you got your period and depending on your cycle do the calculation of the table to get pregnant or not, as this table also serves to prevent pregnancy.

Let’s say that the woman has a cycle of 32 days and a luteal phase of 16 days, she would ovulate like this:
32-16 = 16 then, the 16th day of her cycle would be the most likely fertile day.

A woman who has a 21-day cycle and a 12-day luteal phase:
21-12 = 9 then, the 9th day of the cycle would be that woman’s most fertile day.

As most women are unsure of the size of their luteal phase, the ideal is to count a fertile window of seven calendar days around the fertile day. Suggesting the count in three days before the most fertile day and four days later to surround the egg well and leave no gap for it to escape favoring the pregnancy.

To be precise, the table needs a cycle that is at least partially regulated

Variable Cycles

Women who have variable cycle days, one cycle with 30 and another with 32 should add this variation of days up and down in the table. So, a woman who would ovulate on the 16th day of the cycle, should consider starting her fertile period from the 11th to the 21st day of the cycle.

Complicated? A little, but it should be considered basically that ovulation occurs within this period, from 12 to 16 days before menstruation comes and having intercourse or avoiding intercourse to become pregnant or not. The cervical mucus also very helps identify ovulation, be attentive to vaginal moisture. If you have trouble identifying the signs, a great ally is the ovulation test. Just like a pharmacy pregnancy test, it is easy to use and shows an easy to understand result.

A great way to give a little extra strength is to use a cellphone APP for monitoring the cycle like the APP Paula and use ovulation tests that will indicate if ovulation is approaching, if it is happening or if it is already finished, indicating when right time to date and get your positive faster. You can buy your ovulation test here in our online store . 

Baby Gender Chart

The pregnancy chart can also help determine the sex of the baby . If the couple has a preference for a girl , for example, if you know that the most fertile day will be the 12th day of the cycle then you always date a day or two before the most fertile day.

To get the help of the table to get pregnant with a boy , the relationships must be exactly on the most fertile days, when ovulation would actually happen. Any questions to calculate your fertile period you can also use the  fertility calculator available here at Changing Diapers.
