Menstrual Cycle Charting: How to Do it Accurately?

            The reason why it is important to chart your cycle is for you to know when your fertile days are, just like using a fertility calculator. Most women have 28 days menstrual cycle. This means that you have six days to try to get pregnant every month. The six days will include 5 days before the egg is released and one day when the ovaries already released an egg. Having intercourse in these days is very important if you want to get pregnant.

            When charting, start with the first day of your menstruation. Keep track of the days when you are having your cycle for three to four consecutive months. Once you have an average, you subtract 18 days from the length of your shortest cycle. This will be the first day that you are most fertile.  Then subtract 11 days from the longest length of the cycle. This will be the last day when you will be fertile.

When you are trying to get pregnant, it is important that you know how your menstrual cycle works. You can also visit websites and see here the tips on how to improve your chances of conceiving a baby. It is best if you get an expert advice from your gynecologist as well.
