The short answer is better than the rest of the time.

The ballpark figure bandied about is that you have a 20 to 25 per cent chance of conceiving a child during this roughly six day period. This is of course based on the assumption that you are ovulating normally, that your vaginal pH levels are normal, your fallopian tubes are normal and that your partner’s sperm count is normal. That’s a lot of factors that you need to be normal.

This six days period is calculated as such because although an ovum will only survive 24 hours, sperm can survice for five days in the womb. In reality the best chance of conceiving is from two days before the egg is released to 24 hours after ovulation, although of course pregnancy is theoretically possible at any time.

But don’t hold off during non-high fertility periods in an attempt to build up some reserves of sperm so to speak. Research shows that regular sexual intercourse throughout the cycle assists the chances of pregnancy rather than diminishes it, but remember to up your frequency during the couple of days of high fertility. The more you do it the better your odds.

If you and your partner have been trying purposely to conceive for over a year during these days of high-fertility it would be wise to speak to your doctor about ways of increasing the likelihood of getting pregnant.

There are always high chances of pregnancy provided your partner has normal sperm count, you have ovulation during menstrual cycle, your fallopian tubes are opened and vaginal pH is normal.
