Did you know?
During ovulation an egg travels along one of the two fallopian tubes that connect your ovaries to your uterus. If the timing is right, sperm may fertilize it on its way to the uterus. If fertilization doesn't happen within 24 hours of the egg leaving the ovary, the egg dissolves.
Folic acid is required in the first weeks of life.
The Department of Health recommends that you should take a daily supplement of 400 micrograms of folic one month before and up to three months after conception, when your baby's spine is developing.
How well do you know your menstrual cycle?
The first phase starts with the first day of bleeding during your period and ends with ovulation. Between days 2 and 14, your body releases hormones that help thicken the lining of your uterus to get ready for a fertilized egg in preparation for possible pregnancy.
Safeguard your nutrient levels when you come off the pill.
If you have been on the pill for a long time you may be low on certain vitamins and minerals especially the B-group vitamins. Research suggests that the use of oral contraceptive pills has been associated with lower levels of vitamin B12.
You can get pregnant when you are menstruating.
Research suggests that women may be fertile as early as day 4 of their cycle (day one is taken as the first day of bleeding) therefore pregnancy could occur at any point in a cycle.
