Recognize Myths v Truths

Myth

Couples should have sex only during ovulation.

Truth

The highest pregnancy rates are seen when a couple has intercourse every 1-2 days during the fertile window – the time in a cycle when pregnancy can occur – with no prolonged abstinence periods in between fertile cycles.2

Finding Your Path

As a woman gets older, it may become increasingly difficult to conceive. As you make your decision on when to start a family (or to see a fertility specialist), keep these fertility facts in mind:

  • At 30, a healthy woman has about a 20% chance per month of conceiving
  • By the time a woman reaches 40, her chances drop to about 5% per month3

One simple and noninvasive step is keeping track of ovulation and timing intercourse.
