The Most Fertile Period Is Before Ovulation
You may believe it or not, but the best moment to remain pregnant occurs in the interval of 5 days before ovulation. This occurs because once the egg has left the ovary, the man`s sperm has around 12 to 24h to reach it for the conception to take place. But sperm may remain viable in your body for a few days or even weeks. So in short, the more sperm there are inside your body, the more chances you have to become pregnant. – More info!
