    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.

    You have to try on your fertile days until you reach your ovulation!

    I have been trying also myself! Am into my 7th cycle but still not pregnant! Went through D&C last July 2013 so am working on it with my husband. Hopefully this time, i get pregnant!!try to download apps to help guide you too!

    Hi there, being fertile is also like ovulating they are the same. If I were you try to track down when your ovulation period is just to be sure in getting pregnant. I have here a site where it can calculate when your ovulation period is. I hope this helps.
