It's great that you are educating yourself on your body, as well as conception. Please read the information that susan c and miscortes provided, and let us know if you have any specific questions.

You may not have "missed" your ovulation; there is no exact science to having an egg fertilized. In fact, there is only a 20% chance each cycle that an egg is fertilized! Having intercourse every night is not recommended for everyone, unless you are within the window of knowing when you are most fertile, as the man's sperm does not have time to replenish. Many experts recommended having sex every-other-night.

It takes many couples up to a year to conceive---be patient, and have fun!

I haven't been taught any methods. and I don't know any thing about reproductive cycle because is against my religion to talk about it. I just started so I don't know anything. How did I miss my ovalation because as soon as I was done with my periods me and my husband had sex and I don't think I missed it. I don't understand I need help I am desperate. thanks

that's the only date after my period. I don't want to take an ovalation kit because is against my religion. I don't know what to do. I need help

Thank you for your question. It appears from your question that you are now only 7 days from your last period. You may want to wait until next month to see if you miss a period.

There are ovulation tests that you can purchase from drug stores that will tell you when you are ovulating and that is the best time for you to become pregnant. Usually, you ovulate 14 days after the beginning of your period but many people are different and the tests will certainly help you determine your ovulation time.

I hope this helps and good luck on your venture to conceive.
