  • Conception Timing

    Day 10 to day 14 of a female menstrual cycle are the ideal dates for intercourse to get pregnant. During this period the Graffian Follicle (EGG) is well developed and matured and gets ovulated (falling off from ovary into the tubes) and is ready to get fertilized. Sexual intercourse during this period is ideal for conception.
