My husband and I are trying to conceive a baby and I have been reading book after book, but still very confused. So my question is;
When trying to conceive a baby do you have to have sex on fertile day or on ovulation day? We have been trying and trying but I feel like I have no where to turn to ask my questions I have. If someone could please help me.
Thank you.

Hi elizabeth41993,

I am sorry that no one has answered your question yet. Are you still trying to conceive? If so, this article might be helpful for you. Basically is says that the four to five days leading up to ovulation and the day of ovulation itself are when you can conceive with your best chances on the day before and the day of ovulation.Our fertility quiz might also be helpful for you.

Best wishes,
Atti
