Ovulation Calculator Helps to Conceive Baby Faster
When you are trying to get pregnant it’s a great help to know when you are at your most fertile. For this you basically need to know when you are ovulating (when an egg is released from your ovary).
This is when an online FREE ovulation calculator is so very useful.
You simply have to type in the date of your last menstrual period and how long your cycle usually lasts, and the free ovulation calculator will let you know when you are at your most fertile - and more likely to conceive.
Ovulation occurs 14 days before a period, so if a woman has a 28 day cycle this is exactly halfway between periods. If the cycle is regularly 30 days she can calculate when she will ovulate by subtracting 14 days from the first day of the next expected period (i.e. on day 16).
But don’t worry with the maths. The free ovulation calculator will work it out for you.
And if you get the timing right and your egg is successfully fertilised by a sperm at this mid-cycle stage it will settle into the uterus lining (endometrium) and start to grow into a baby.
If fertilisation doesn't occur or the egg doesn't implant into the uterus the woman’s oestrogen and progesterone levels will drop and the womb lining will begin to produce chemicals that reduce the blood supply to the uterus and cause it to contract.
This is then the beginning of the woman’s next period and next menstrual cycle.
Once the egg is fertilised you can use another free online service to calculate a due date.
Many websites offer a free service to calculate due date and this will give a pretty good idea of when your baby will be born.
Again the only information you need to put in is the date of your last period and the usual length of your menstrual cycle and a due date is calculated.
But it’s best not to put too much emphasis on a specified date. Fewer than 5 percent of babies actually arrive on the date they are due.
Even a date based on an ultrasound can be off by a week or more depending on the skill of the technician, the timing of the scan and the size of the baby.
Until the end of the first trimester most babies grow at the same rate but, in the second and third trimester the size of the fetus corresponds less and less to the amount of time that the baby is in the womb so the date actually becomes less accurate as the pregnancy goes on.
Many women go past their due date so it may be best to be a little vague, telling friends and family that your baby is due “sometime in June” to avoid too many people sympathising when baby is “late”.
