Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

The best time to get pregnant is days 10-20 of your cycle. Day 1 is the first day of your period.  Having sex on your period is not likely to result in pregnancy. 

A woman ovulates (is fertile) for 24 hours a month - just one day. It happens mid-month - the average day is day 14 but can happen between between days 10 and 20. Have sex every other day between these dates. 

A healthy couple under age 35 should get pregnant within a year, with the average being 5 or 6 months.
