Conceiving a baby is the dream of most women. A woman can only get pregnant during the ‘fertile window’ in the menstrual cycle. But what are the good predictors when conception can actually happen?

Ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) can vary from one woman to another and it can even vary from cycle to cycle. When trying to conceive, it can be helpful for you to know when ovulation occurs and when you are most fertile. Knowing when your partner ovulate can help you plan for sex at the right time and improve her chance of getting pregnant.

In the following video, robotic gynaecology surgeon and fertility specialist, Dr Kenneth Leong, discusses how a woman can calculate her ovulatory period.
