Once the ovulation calculator has processed your information, take note of the fertile days highlighted. These are the best days to have intercourse, right before you ovulate and soon after. This is because sperm can survive for several days in your body.
Combine these dates with information found in our other articles on fertile cervical mucus and signs of ovulation to help identify ovulation. An ovulation calculator on its own is not the most reliable method of identifying your own unique pattern of ovulation and fertile periods. Good luck!
