Many pregnant women don't understand why they didn't get pregnant, even if they had intercourse on day of ovulation. You should know that even if husband and wife are healthy, there is only a 20% chance of pregnancy. If you have intercourse during ovulation, it can increase up to 50%, but it is not 100% possible to get pregnant, but if you choose to have sex on this day, chance of pregnancy will be higher, so you can try.When trying to get pregnant, is it easier to get pregnant on day of ovulation?
In fact, day when it is easiest to get pregnant is not day of ovulation, but day before day of ovulation. We all know that successful conception requires successful union of sperm and egg into a fertilized egg, that is, on inner wall of uterus. Normally, female spermatozoa can survive in fallopian tubes for 1–2 days, and male spermatozoa for 2–3 days.
When sperm cells reach female body, in order to connect with egg, they must pass through fallopian tubes, which is a relatively long journey. If a couple lives on day of ovulation, if man's sperm cannot reach fallopian tube and successfully fuse with egg within one or two days, he will die. Thus, possibility of union between sperm and egg is lost, and the fertilized egg cannot be successfully combined, so there will be no successful pregnancy.How to know your ovulation period and ovulation day

B. Cervical mucus monitoring: During ovulation, cervical mucus becomes thin, clear, clear and also increases in quantity, which is called fertile mucus.
