"How can we be sure of the right time to have intercourse?"
The Babystart FertilTime Ovulation Test detects increases in the LH hormone in a woman's urine. The LH hormone triggers ovulation and as soon as a positive test result is seen it is the optimum time for intercourse. If you have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for just a few months, there is probably no need to worry. It is a fact that even if a couple are fertile, they only have about a 25 - 30% chance of conceiving, even when they have intercourse at exactly the right time of the month! For this reason it is not difficult to see why it takes most couples at least 3-6 months to conceive.
However, as many as one in six couples can take a year or more to conceive and these delays in becoming pregnant can simply be a result of bad timing. This means that sexual intercourse is not taking place during the 2 to 3 days leading up to the time of ovulation - the most fertile days in a woman's menstrual cycle.
