Please let me know the chances of pregnancy ; the most appropriate time for intercourse.. do I have more than 1 ovulation during the course of 3 months. Plaese advice

User avatar Hello,
Chances are you are not ovulating every month and you may wish to use an ovulation predictor kit to monitor your basal body temperature which can help you determine your ovulation. However, if you try for a few months, having regular sexual intercourse and do not become pregnant, you may want to see your doctor for an evaluation of your hormone levels. You could be a candidate for an ovulation stimulation medication such as Clomid.

It is also ideal if you have a preconception visit with a gynecologist to be sure everything is OK with your health overall. You could discuss your concerns and the doctor may have suggestions to help you in your efforts.

Good luck.
