Natural Conception

Menstruation is a perfectly normal part of a woman’s life as it is a series of changes that take place in the woman’s body and occur in order to prepare the uterus for the possibility of a pregnancy. The normal menstrual cycle contributes significantly to the physical and mental health of the woman. You want to have a child and these thoughts dominate in your mind… “How easy is a natural conception?” “What success rates do I get from the first few sexual intercourse attempts?” “Can I get pregnant naturally?”

The first day of the cycle coincides with the first day of menstruation (normal flow – red blood). In the pituitary gland, FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) has already begun, which acts on the ovaries to promote maturation of the follicles every month. One follicle will eventually mature and lead to ovulation. With the release of the egg, the empty follicle, the corpus luteum, begins to secrete a hormone, called Progesterone, to prepare the endometrium for eventual implantation. Only these days opens the so-called “implant window” and the endometrium becomes receptive to the fetus in case of a conception. The fertile days of a woman depend on her cycle. If a woman has a fixed cycle (cycle of approximately 28 days) she may find her ovulation day counting 14 days before her next period (1st day is considered Day 1 of red blood flow) and the fertile days are two days before the expected ovulation and two days after.

Ovulation is the process by which one or more follicles are released from one of the ovaries. As it is perceived this corresponds to the fertile phase of the menstrual cycle. In women with stable menstrual cycles, this usually occurs 14 days before the expected period (menstruation). Every month several eggs begin the process of maturation in the ovaries. Usually, however, only one of them completes the entire procedure successfully and is released into the pelvic cavity to reach the fallopian tube.
