Your Chances of Getting Pregnant on Ovulation Day

Early in life, before my reality became tainted by infertility, I had a half-baked impression about how easy it is for women to get pregnant.

I’ve now come to understand that it’s not quite as simple and easy as our sex ed instructors would have us believe.

In fact, a healthy woman in her 20s or early 30s only has approximately a 20-25% chance of pregnancy each month without using protection.

Approximately once a month, a woman’s ovaries will release a mature egg. This is called ovulation.

What is Ovulation?

Yes! Not only can you get pregnant on ovulation day; it’s one of the most fertile days in a woman’s reproductive cycle.

The answer is yes, it IS possible to get pregnant during your period – but it’s not very likely.
