From tracking ovulation to taking the right supplements, conceiving can be a tricky process. But, does the time of conception bear any relevance during this entire process? We know that there is a fertility window between your last period to the next, where you are at peak fertility. This three to five day window is the ovulation period when the chances of getting pregnant are high. Now let’s find out if the best time to conceive is in the morning or at night.
What is the Best Time of the Day to Conceive?
A study found that getting intimate in the morning, precisely before 7.30 a.m will increase your chances of getting pregnant. The semen quality at this time is much higher than during the rest of the day. This was found to be true especially in the spring months of March, April, and May.
However, a team at the University of Modena found that men’s sperm motility and quantity are at their highest during late afternoon hours. If you were also to consider that most women ovulate in the time leading to midnight, you have the best time of day for intercourse to get pregnant.
With testosterone levels in men increasing substantially between 6 am to 9 am, and libido at its peak between 10 pm to 1 am, you have several windows to choose from to try and get pregnant.
As it may be hard to keep track of your ovulation window if your periods are irregular, it is ideal to get cosy with your partner every alternate day or every day, to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Remember, semen thrives in a healthy body, so you will need to quit smoking and drinking, and consume healthy food items if you intend to get pregnant. More importantly, remember to have fun and not turn it into a routine.
