  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    The sperm lives up to 3-5 days in the female genital tract. The lifespan of ovum is 24 hours. So if you have had sex within 5 days before the date of ovulation or on the day of ovulation you can conceive this time.

    To increase your chances of conception you need to have healthy life style i.e. stop smoking if you are a smoker. Should not drink more than 1-2 units of alcohol per week. Your BMI should be around 25. If it is more you need to reduce weight. One more important thing is you should have regular intercourse 2-3 times/ week.
    If you don't conceive in 3-4 months time period consult your doctor and get the fallopian tube patancy test done.
    If you have any further queries feel free to ask me. Good luck
